I don't know where this belongs, so I'm posting it in the general chatter section and its the end of the work day and I just need to write things out for a minute.
So, my very good friends invited me to Thanksgiving dinner with them about a month ago. I felt a little bad not going to see my usual friends, but since they asked me first, I agreed. We never made arrangements for what time I was to show up, etc. as it was just talked about briefly.
This is a friend of mine and her husband. The woman is the person I'm good friends with. On Friday she posted online in a filtered post (we are on a blogging community) that she is having some relationship issues. Sadly, she mentioned that they have talked about divorce and things are not going very well for her at the moment. She said she was out of town that weekend and when she got back Monday night (yesterday) she would know whether she was going to try to make the marriage work.
Now, I'm in an awkward place. I don't know if I should bring up the subject of Thanksgiving or not. I certainly don't want to be there if it isn't a happy environment and either way, I'd feel like a third wheel (if they are trying to work things out, they should be alone).
The truth of the matter is that I'm hoping that she doesn't say anything to me about it. I don't want to bring the subject up and unless she writes to me telling me telling me what time to stop by, I'm going to assume it is over.
Wouldn't you assume the plans were off if you haven't heard anything about it and Thanksgiving is only 2 days away?
Right now, I'm very focused on the things I am eating and do not want to be tempted. I'd much prefer eating alone this holiday. I certainly will see friends, but it doesn't need to involve hedonism!
