- Wedding: September 2009
One of my friend’s birthday parties (2 weeks after his bday) that lots of our/my friends are going to was planned for Friday. On Saturday night, there was a group of our/FH’s friends playing cards (which we both like but FH is way more into it) and FH’s work event. FH managed to convince them to move cards to Friday night, and the person hosting sent out an email to everyone saying “Mr. and Mrs. Guitargirl can’t come Saturday and really want to play cards, so we are moving it to Friday.”
Both events are at essentially the same time and are 35-40 minutes away from each other, so it would be very difficult to go to both. The birthday party is 5 minutes away, and the card party is 35 minutes away. Last card party, FH went and I didn’t because I was sick. I like the people at the card party. FH and I don’t get much time together, and we are trying to go to social events together, but I really want to go to the birthday party. My plan was to go the birthday party and FH to go to the card party, but then when I got that email, I feel obligated to go to the card party. What would you do? Thanks!
