In Response To: Re: Deciding Next Reunion Location ()
The short, truthful, answer is "no." The complainers did not want to take on the host responsibilities. That's why it's important to set your course and not let the complainers frustrate you when there was no other way to get the job done.
For example, one year I had to chill a lot of soda (pop) cans in our hospitality suite and the refrigerator was already full. So, I put the soda cans in the bathtub and filled it with ice from Hotel machine. Well, don't you know that one of my cousins openly criticized me for having such bad taste as to put the soda in a bathtub. These kind of comments have been made in the past, and probably more will be made in the future, but the bottom line is you cannot let the complainers in the family stop you from acting.
I share this experience to prepare some of the newcomers and let them know that your love for your family has to overshadow these kind of comments.
