While I'm up north for work this week, I figured it'd be a good time to chat about something that's been on my mind lately.
friends and balance.
Like with everything, there is a healthy balance of hanging out with friends, hanging out with your sig other and having a little alone time.
Kevin and I are very lucky and each have lots of friends. This is something I really liked about Kevin when we first started dating because he could go have guy time and I could go have girl time. We both value our relationships with our friends and think that guys nights and girls nights are very important. I've always been thankful that we both are on the same page about this.
Now that we're a little older we have quite a few couple friends too like I posted about yesterday. This is great because we all enjoy spending time together.
But there are sooo many friends of ours that we want to get together with or they want to get together with us and we just don't have enough time. I hate this. But it's reality. We all have lives to live, we all need time with our sig other, we all have to work, we all have other people to see. It's seriously a joke at this point about our schedule. People at my office kid me about how many wedding or baby showers I have in a weekend. Kevin and I seriously schedule a couple months in advance. I remember a point last summer where we had something every single weekend through Thanksgiving. That my friends, is ridiculous. Poor Kevin haha!
Please don't get me wrong....I'm soooo thankful for our friends and have no clue what we'd do without them. But ahhh it's so frustrating to not always have time to go see or hang out with everyone. And the worst part is I feel SO guilty about it. All the time. I just don't know what to do.
And the guest list for our wedding....HA. That's a different story in itself. I REALLY have no clue what to do about that. It's unbelievable. Would we invite everyone if we could? Absolutely. Have we won the lottery? No. :) It's just going to be how it is and I pray that we don't hurt feelings.
Anyway, this has just been on my mind. Do any of you all feel like this sometimes?
