My sister and I are very different. I think things through, she is impulsive, I am organized, she is chaotic. I love parties that are planned, organized and everyone has a good time, including me. My niece is turning 16 today. In the last week my sister has changed the date of her party 5 times. I have told her from the start that we were not available for the next two weekends, yet she continues to call me. Honestly, she hasn't had a party for her to which adults have been invited in probably 5 years. I have always still given a gift and normally don't hear back about it. I guess I just don't understand the whole thing. I certainly don't expect the party plans to be made completely around our busy schedule, but really, when I say I'm busy for the next weekends...I'm telling the truth. I have plans!
I could further grumble that this summer we have been invited to: 6 weddings, 3 showers, 4 birthday parties, and 3 graduation parties. If you throw in the dinner invitations, picnics and then add on top all the events at the lake... we just can't get to everything. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE socializing, but I really don't want to be overwhelmed with guilt about not attending everything. Summer is short up here in the north, can someone please invite me to something in November or February or March??????
