The latest comments include that he should have been required to reimburse the couple for the DJ's services and I agree with that.
every evening when we came to the motel we were staying in that night, he'd take all the tissues from the dispenser in their room, and then he'd come to lil sis' and my room and take all our tissues, too.
The issue with paying per night is that it means Isobel has to pay twice as much as everyone else. Yes she is occupying a whole room, but she isn't occupying twice as much space in the rest of the house - bathrooms, kitchen, etc.
Also, while Gail and Harry are staying for the Friday night, they will be in the house for most of Saturday daytime and evening, even though they've moved out of the room by that point. And, let's suppose that the bedroom which all three will occupy is the smallest of the four (still a double room, but not as big as the ones used by the families).
We got up, had breakfast, and headed out. I walked out the door and looked at the front of my beautiful gray sedan, to see it covered with dead mosquitoes. Covered! Hundreds at least, on the bumper, front of the hood, windshield, wipers, mirrors, you name it!
DS said he was doing his part to combat zika.
My car got washed, and is now wet again from the rain, but at least it isn't covered in mosquitoes.
He deserves a mosquito slaying award!
I hope no one is putting a guilt trip on the poor brother for living his adult life. That's what the tone of this sounds like. Plenty of people have smaller families and have lovely holidays.
Also, I don't think you need to say anything about where you are staying. The fact that they are setting aside some rooms at one hotel doesn't mean that you are obligated to stay there. I wouldn't mention the hotel at all. If anyone asks where you are staying, you can say that you are checking around online.
