I have to disagree with this - no matter how many people I was going to have at my house for a holiday, I would never, under ANY circumstances tell my own mother that she had to sleep in the garage.

I can agree that it's odd to suggest to her that she sleep in the garage, but I also think it's weird for her to go back and forth so often.

What kind of family time do you think she'd have with 30+ people in a home for a funeral? And your assumptions about her traveling and lodging are unwarranted without more information, and calling it nutty is going too far. >>> When I was your age, I would have gone and slept on the garage floor, but not anymore. And I wouldn't expect the OP to do it, either. But then there is always probably going to be a difference in opinion between a 25 y.o. and women who have kids older than that.

That is my whole point exactly--it has nothing to do with accomodations...but just the whole ongoing attitude of hemming around, of no one saying anything to me about the fact that all my kids were getting together for Easter

I also felt it was appropriate back away, when i heard that the funeral for a person that I did not know and was known only by my kids was the same weekend as my kids Easter get together with their Dad

I didn't say she'd get a lot of family time with 30+ strangers, but they're not strangers in this scenario--they're all family.

I believe in the OP's situation that the majority of the "family" may be strangers. And my apologies about your age, could have sworn I just recently read that you are indeed 25. And if you were, my opinion would stand as is.
