This is resolved! You can save your reading time. I deleted details below. I cancelled; she is fine with it; she might be cancelling anyway.
I am at the lake with my kids. It is supposed to be gorgeous weather the next few days. I agreed awhile ago to go to an informal brunch my friend is having on Sat morning. For a whole variety of reasons, would rather stay up here an extra night with the kids and not attend the brunch. We’re 4 hours away.
WWYD? I totally keep flip-flopping on whether to text her or not.
Is this a house you own that you go to a lot, or is this a vacation that you thought you’d be home earlier from?
Also, did you know you were going on this trip when you made brunch plans?? (And if so, why? Except for a super important reason, i wouldn’t come home earlier than i had to from a trip that’s 4 hours away!)
I need a little clarification to determine where i fall on this.
Well, you already made your decision, but what do you mean mean too early if you come home the day before?? I also don’t understand all the hoops you’d have to jump through. I mean, life happens, but I try not to back out of things, especially when it’s a smaller gathering.
Ok douche, go ahead and call it mud. My husband DID have halitosis. We addressed it after I talked to you girls on here and guess what? Years later, no problem. Mofongo, you're a cunt. Eat shit. ~anonnamus
For what it’s worth - when it comes to family vacations, as the hostess, i wouldn’t want someone coming home 4 hours JUST for a brunch at my house if otherwise they could stay longer. From that perspective, i wouldn’t care.
But knowing it’s your cabin and you can technically go whenever you want - there is a feeling of “something better came along”/ poor planning and that adds a little sting to bailing.
But in all honesty, 90% of me still is in the side of “i wouldn’t mind” if you bailed. As long as it wasn’t a habit. 😉
