I'm so bummed and just need to vent. Dh is a commercial airline pilot and has a very different work week compared to most husbands. This month he works Friday - Monday and is home T, W, and Th.
A very very good friend of mine is getting married next weekend in Ft. Worth. My mom agreed a long time ago that she would watch E over the weekend while we went to the wedding. It would be our first weekend away. Anyway, Dh has to work And there isn't much hope of getting out of it... someone has to fly those planes! And switching schedules just isn't as easy as it sounds. There is a lot of "red tape" to deal with.
SO- next weekend I'll be driving by myself to DFW... I'll attend the bridesmaid luncheon and rehearsal dinner Friday & Friday night. The bride-to-be and I became good friends after college so I really won't know anyone. Saturday is the wedding.... again, I won't know many people. I think I'm a super social and fun person.... but it's hard to go to weddings by yourself. Plus, I lurve me some cocktails... but I'll be driving... so I can't drink much. (I'm staying with friends but they're not going to the wedding.)
I know I need to turn my attitude around... but right now, I almost don't feel like going. But I couldn't miss it...
That said, since it is so much work for me to leave Elise (still BFing so I'll have to pump), I am toying with the idea of skipping the Friday events (bridesmaid luncheon and rehearsal dinner.) The luncheon will be fun I'm sure but I really won't know anyone at the rehearsal dinner... (fwiw, I'm part of the house party, not a bridesmaid.) WDYT? Is that awful of me? The bride-to-be is such a good friend and such a sweetie... ugggg.
