step granddaughter graduating - should I go?
Thank you for any advice. My husband's granddaughter is graduating and being commissioned (Army). We haven't been in touch much since his daughter's divorce, husband blames daughter. But he (we) did not keep in touch with the grandkids due to many reasons (loss of jobs, $, anger issues, embarrassed) all excuses. We've only spoken with daughter perhaps 3x year in 8 yrs or so and if the grandkids happen to be there, will speak with them briefly. My husband even had his grandson's email and did not email and I don't know why except slow typing and I have offered but it just doesn't happen, I think he feels awkward?
I am acutely embarrassed over this and do not want to attend as there is a chance the ex wife would be there also. I would go to Vegas for a couple of nights - less $ and my 1st time, husband has no interest in Vegas.
Need any advice and suggestions as to what to do about graduation and how to mend (explain) this awkward situation to grandkids.
