I completely know how you feel, I do this a lot too! If it were me, yes I would still go because I wouldn’t want to start a habit. If I started canceling plans with friends when I just don’t feel like going then I think it would be easier and easier to do. Besides, I always end up having fun even if I didn’t feel like going ๐Ÿ™‚ I have this problem with the gym too hahahaha

Yes, still go!! You don’t want to get burned out with wedding planning and connecting with your friends actually might give you precious insight to what’s really important.

I know what you mean though. I hate travelling in general and I HATED traveling before the wedding since we were trying to save $ and were working such long hours, but EVERYONE wanted to see us. We constantly heard “Oh, let’s hang out before the wedding!” And I just had to laugh, because obviously there couldn’t have been a worse time.

I am a total hermit. I make plans and then I never want to go. But I will say…. most of the time I make myself go and I’m glad I did. I think it sounds like a fun relaxing weekend and as long as you like all of the people going… you should go. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m the same – I like to be at home with Darling Husband and the puppy.  Wish I were there now!  (darn work…and Darling Husband stayed home today…)
Anyhoo – if I were I would go because you’ll be glad you went in the end but I know it’s hard to get excited about it when you just want to stay home!  I don’t make plans with friends very often because of my inclination to stay home so when I do make plans I try my best to keep them – my friendships need a little TLC every now and then.  If you see your friends all the time I can see why you might want to stay home even more!

Relaxing all weekend sounds good to me – I say go and enjoy it!

I have to force myself to do things sometimes.  Whether I’d rather spend time with my husband, and not wanting to travel, even as simple as not feeling social that day, I find that I’m much happier that I went after I’ve forced myself to go.

Friendships are important!

@stephinPA: I have definitely felt that way many many times. And just like the other bees have said – I usually am really happy that I went. Sometimes the anticipation of something is WAY worse than the actual thing itself. Taking a break from wedding planning will be good for you and Im sure you will have a great time with your friends!

Oh man I am right there with you, we have to travel 4+ hours to go see my parents for turkey weekend (tonight!), and then early sunday travel another 2 hours to go see my partner’s family for Turkey Day Take2, then on Monday we travel 3hours home, and on Tuesday my partner flies for a 3 day buisness trip.

I just want to stay hooooooome. Why Can’t I just be a petulant teenager anymore?


Unlike most others I am usually anything but glad if I actually do go. I am like the doom & gloom of travelling if I’m not gung ho for it. Try as I might to not be miserable I have a really hard time not letting my grouchiness sour the fun(for me, I’m pretty good at putting on the happy face for everyone else).



I tell people I am a hermit all the time. They think I am joking, but it is the truth.

Haha…I can’t say it any better than Corgitales. I think we may be the same person. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, go! You will have fun, even though you have to drag yourself out of the house.

I definitely get that feeling often. Sometimes it means less drama by just staying home with Fiance. But you should go, sounds like an awesome weekend, and it’ll be worth it ๐Ÿ™‚
