Tonight is one of those times and I'm choosing my blog to vent about it because a) I can and b) it might save me from making an ass out of myself.
In a nutshell, here's the story: I wanted to throw a surprise party for a friend of mine for her birthday. Lately, she's seemed a little down and I wanted to do something really nice. After checking with her hubby about a month ago to make sure that he didn't already have something planned, I started trying to set this little shindig up.
The guest list was a bit short.She works and I don't, so I don't really know her other friends very well. I know she tends to keep work separate from her private life, which makes that list even shorter. Fair enough. I invited everyone I could think of or find on her Facebook page. Out of the invitees, two were going to be out of town, two accepted, and two weren't sure.
Tonight I find out that only one other person is coming. I am so disappointed. I tried really hard to put this together and I feel like I have totally failed.
And what do you even say in a situation like this anyway? Sorry, friend. I invited others but no one showed?
I'm upset and being a little unfair. I understand that life gets crazy. I get it, I do. But come on. If you've known the plans for several weeks and have said you were coming, what's the deal with bailing three days prior?
I just feel terrible for my friend.
