Carolyn Hax: She doesn’t want to cancel trip for abusive mom

I’m insulted that I wasn’t consulted regarding an event they’re suggesting I might “co-host,” but I’m trying to let that go. My real issue: Am I now obligated to cancel my only vacation, ever, to attend? If I go, I will be resentful (obviously). If I don’t go, it is fodder for family gossip about what a terrible daughter I am. It looks to me like a lose-lose situation.
