He was happy to come. She was furious when she found out.
My other puzzle's not done yet, but I wanted something poor Balin could work on!

He=HAM? She=HAF? She1=she2? True story? Location relevant? Time relevant? Can we call him Tim and her Mary? Did time come? Was Mary furious because Tim came? The thing she found out: his coming? his intention to come? something else? Was Mary present where Tim came? Or intended to come?

Of course, 'did time come?' should read 'did Tim come?'

Come - to see you? Yes, he's coming to see me. When? Where? Why? And why would this make my mother so angry?

Over a holiday? Would this mean that your mother would not get to see you? Or spend as much time with you?

Did Linda want Ron to better not come at all? Or come in at a different moment? Was the event your birthday? A wedding? Some celebration related to your professional life?

Balin: Your graduation? Yes!!

Rbruma: Did Linda want Ron to better not come at all? Oh, I'm sure, but she's not callous enough to keep him away from it altogether, however much she dislikes him being there...
Or come in at a different moment? She'd settle for this
Was the event your birthday? A wedding? Some celebration related to your professional life? It is, as Balin said, my graduation from my vocational school, so this is closest. All that's left to figure out, I suppose is why she's so mad and why she doesn't want him to come (at least, when he plans on coming), but that should be fairly easy.

Are they divorced? They are, and it was nowhere near amicable. You're almost there...I suppose I could spoyle now, as the rest is just details, but I want to keep this puzzle going a little longer.

RECAP: My parents are divorced, and my father, Ron, is coming over to my mom's house on Friday. I'm graduating, and he wants to see me. She'd rather he not come, but won't stop him coming to my graduation. There is something he's doing that made her furious, however, because it means she gets less time with me. Technically, you probably all know what it is, but no one's said it in so many words. What is it?

Is he preparing to take you with him over the weekend? As a sort of a reward for the graduation?

To a celebration afterwards? Not afterwards...

Is he preparing to take you with him over the weekend? I hope not, lol.
As a sort of a reward for the graduation? I think both my mom and I would object if he wanted me to go home with him. *snicker*

Instead of her who wants to? Pretty much, yeah.

***SPOILER***

I am graduating from Everest College with a degree...thing in Medical Administrative Assisting on Friday afternoon. My mom got the whole day off, but she warned me before that it would be next to impossible. Therefore, I asked my dad to come to my graduation, something he had to take the day off for as well (but he had an easier time of it)

Then, my mom told me that miraculously, she had the day off too...

Therefore, my dad's going to spend the morning with me, something my mom is really mad about. After all, she took the day off to be with me! One of them is going to take me to my graduation (probably him) and, afterward, I shall go with my mom for the after-graduation party, which he can't come to as my parents are divorced and it did not go well.

Thanks, Rbruma and Balin, and to Gregory Coke for the solve! (ah...Koch. Sorry *impish grin*
