friends (part two)

I have some friends that live in another state, we'll call them couple #1 (original, I know). The wife of couple #1 has been one of my best friends for over ten years. I was with her when she met her husband and I was maid of honor in their wedding.

We all have mutual friends, we'll call them couple #2 and couple #3. Couple #2 and #3 both live in the same state (not the same state that I live in, nor the same state where couple #1 lives). Couple #1 are better friends with #2 and #3 than I am, but we're all friends. Couple #1, #2 and #3 all have children.

Okay, now that I've given you all of the background info, I can move on to the actual story.

We all get together from time to time and we've always all had fun together. So I find out via Facebook last week (junior high schoolish, I know) that couple #1 has invited couple #2 and #3 to their house for a weekend get together. My boyfriend and I were not invited. I know it's petty, but my feelings are kind of hurt by this. I think it's because they all have children and we don't. Which I don't understand, because we have all gotten together for a weekend before, all of their children were there, and I didn't have a problem with that. I don't have a problem with other people's children as long as they are not spoiled little brats well behaved and I don't have to take care of them.

I know I'm being petty and I shouldn't let it bother me, but I really do consider the wife of couple #1 to be one of my best friends, and I already hate that we live so far apart and don't get to see each other as often as I would like. I know there isn't really anything I can do about the situation, it is what it is. I just wanted to get that off my chest.

Moving on......I think we're going to do a whole lot of nothing this weekend since we were so busy last weekend. I hope you all of a wonderful weekend!

My immature comment:

That's totally shitty and no one likes to be left out, especially if it's because you're the only one without kids. Bummer.

My mature comment:

Don't take it personally, there are times when it just doesn't work to have everyone together. Things like this just happen. You're right, it is what it is.

I agree with both comments by vanitysfair.

I would be upset too....I get my feelings hurt way to easily especially if i feel excluded. Hopefully she had a good reason, like #2 and #3's kids are extremely annoying know and she didn't want you subjected....or they are planning to only go watch something like hannah montana on ice ot something ridiculous like that!

Um I can TOTALLY relate! One of my best friends, she's literally like my sister, does this to me. She's married and just recently had a baby this past summer. I have gone to a baby shower, been in her wedding, baby's baptism, etc. I am having a birthday dinner tonight. I invited her and she claims that she cannot come. Okay, I completely understand that you're a mom and can't be boozing all night, but she could at least ask her husband to watch the baby so she could come to dinner. I even suggested this. She told me that she couldn't do it and wouldn't be able to come. I think when people get married they forget about what's important. It really hurt my feelings. I think you have every right to feel that way!
