House warming party

Well, today we had our house warming party and it was a bit of a let down...

We invited over 60 people and only 15 showed up. We had a good time and it was nice to see the people who came, but it was a huge let down that so many people didn't show. I mean, what am I going to do with all that food? I figured at least 30 would show up and since we didn't have that, I have a ton of left over food.

It was also kinda sad that so many people must not have wanted to come. I didn't ask for an RSVP, maybe I should have. We had planned on it being an open house kinda thing, so it didn't seem like we needed an RSVP, but maybe more people would have come if we had asked them to.

What was weird, was that the people who said they were coming, didn't come and the ones we didn't know about were the ones who showed.

It's just that it is the last weekend for everyone to be able to see my husband before he leaves for activation. Next weekend we have a funeral and a brunch to go to, the weekend after that is Marine Corps Ball and the weekend after that is Thanksgiving and the last weekend he will be home. So we don't have any more time to see people. They couldn't have picked a worse time to activate.

We've been telling people that he is leaving soon, but no one told us when exactly that would be until this past week. So we didn't know for sure how much time we had left to see people. It could have been next month or 2 months from now, there was no way to be sure. We had a "probably will leave at this time" but nothing more concrete until now. But by the time they told us we only had November left, the first weekend of November was gone.

It just suck to plan and try to impress upon people that the time to see my husband is now and then have no one show up. We have lots of food and stuff left over and didn't get to see many people. It just blows...
