Tonight we're going to dinner to celebrate Mr. Potts' birthday with a group of our friends. We're going to Las Ramblas - our favorite tapas place ever!! One of my favorite things to get is the Fried Goat cheese - it's served with almonds, roasted garlic & quince honey. Oh yum!
I have to admit though that I was a bit irritated after I sent the original email to our group of friends asking who'd like to come. Originally, dinner was supposed to be Saturday night. I received a response back from someone that he and his wife were planning on celebrating his birthday that same day, just earlier in the day. In the form of a bar crawl. Well, he never waited to see if I responded (I was on vacation & was pretty sporadic about checking email) and his wife sent out the email invitation the next day after I had already sent mine.
I was irritated. I wonder why she couldn't push the plan back one week and do it next Saturday. Because they planned to start at Noon and go til about 6pm. I had already the day before said dinner would be at 7pm. Even if I had pushed it back an hour, it still would have been not so fun - most people by that point would be falling down drunk. A few weren't going to be able to celebrate Mr. Potts' because they had already committed (before either emails were sent) to the all day bar crawl.
So I moved the dinner to Friday night. People are still coming, but I'm disappointed that a friend of mine didn't call me after I sent my email to talk to me about it, but just pushed ahead.
Am I wrong to be a little irritated?
I do tend to get upset more easily & dwell on things like this. So I should be over it by Sunday.
Happy Happy Friday!!!
