My best friend is getting married next Saturday in Chicago [about a 1.5 drive for me, more depending on time of day]. The rehearsal dinner is at 7pm on Friday and we need to be ready for hair and makeup at 10am on Saturday. H and I decided that K will stay home with my mom for the wedding [and we will stay overnight Saturday at the hotel] because it really won't be fun for any of us trying to keep her entertained. Plus, I want to be completely present for my friend and that's just not possible when K is there.
Anyway, my plan was to drive to the rehearsal and drive home that night, and then drive back down on Saturday morning, mainly because I feel guilty leaving K for 2 days. My H has to work lateon Friday so he cant come to the rehearsal and is going to take the train down Sat afternoon for the wedding. However, K will be sleeping when I get home Friday night and I'll see her for like 2 hours on Saturday morning.
The other reason for doing the driving back and forth is that the hotel is $250 a night and we are already staying Saturday. My friend texted me and said she and her husband to be were talking and want me to just stay in their suite Friday night. My first response was hell no, I feel like a bum/creep staying with the couple the night before their wedding! But she said its a gigantic suite and they won't even know I'm there....and that she wants me to be there.
What do you think? Creepy?
