I'll preface this by saying that of course I know that my BFF can do what she wants, it's her vacation, and it's none of my business. I get that. I also will say that I haven't talked to her about this, nor do I plan to because I don't want to sound bratty or needy. BUT. She has really hurt my feelings. BFF and I lived across the street from each other for 10 years when we lived up north. Almost 3 years ago, we moved to FL, so she and I are now 900 miles apart and, obviously, rarely see each other. I haven't exactly made a lot of friends here, especially with difficult child's issues and also having a baby/small child. I am also very shy. This friendship with her means a lot to me, and I really miss her. Several weeks ago she called me to tell me that she was thinking about coming down to the FL Gulf Coast area for spring break and saying how great it would be if I and my family could meet up with them, even if it's several hours from us (I live on the Space Coast). I was excited about the idea. A week or so later she called and said that the trip wasn't going to pan out. Oh well, no biggie. Fast forward to this past Sunday morning. I get on FB and see that her daughter has posted about being on the way to Florida! Of course I asked about it, and BFF said that they were on the way to Jacksonville to visit a cousin of theirs for spring break. Um, WHAT? They are less than 3 hours from me, and I only found out about it by chance! I get the feeling that she was just not going to tell me about it, or else she would have before the trip. I would have loved to go up there for the day, or we could have met halfway in Daytona or something for a few hours one day, or something! I can't help but feel hurt. Very hurt. There's no WAY I'd travel so close to them up north and not let them know and see if a get-together were feasible! I don't get it. At all. Like I said, I understand that it's her time, her vacation, it's not about me, and it's none of my business. But geez. It hurts.
