What do I do?

I wasn’t able to go to church this morning because both Jace and Lucy were running high fevers. This morning our Sunday School Class won the attendance banner which means we get to have a dinner fellowship. While this is fabulous, they scheduled the dinner for the exact same date and time that I’ve been planning Zander’s Kindergarden Graduation party. No thanks to my husband who didn’t bother to say anything when they were discussing the date. UGH. I have worked SO hard behind the scenes on setting everything up for Z’s party, buying supplies, getting things together. And now this happens.

I’m bawling as I type this, so if it makes no sense, please forgive me. I just really wanted to do something special for Z’s graduation.

So, what do I do? Do I hold off until mid-July to have his Graduation Party? Is that too late? Do I cancel altogether? What would you do in this situation?

Help this hormonal, emotional lady out and tell me what you think I should do. Sitting here crying about it isn’t going to get me anywhere, so give me some advice!

    I would just make it a different date, or a different day the same weekend.

    Maybe you could do a Graduation Breakfast or Brunch the same weekend/day? On Memorial Day Weekend, we had six parties we had to attend and managed to fit everything in. The best part was we only had to plan/host one. The worst part was we were all exhausted by the time the weekend was over, but we had a great time visiting with all of our friends and family. Managing multiple schedules can be tricky and frustrating, but it also can be fun! Good luck, Angie!

    I agree with Melissa. Change the date. HUGS.

    If the invitations haven't gone out, I'd probably try to change the date. When is the dinner? If it's a Saturday, could you change the party to Friday or Sunday, or vice versa? Or just the following weekend? It'll be okay!

    No, don't cancel Z's party! You're right, it's important. I agree, can you try a different day the same weekend, or even a different time the same day? Good luck, sweetie!
