So one of my best friends and her husband live out near Pittsburgh and this weekend my best friend was supposed to meet up with me and 3 of our other friends in Lancaster to have a quick girls weekend and go see a band play that we use to go see all the time when we were in out 20's. We had actually became pretty friendly with the band and now the band is breaking up and this will be the last time we will be able to see them play together. Everything was all planned out and her husband was orginally on board with everything. He was supposed to take the weekend off from work so he could take their son to a birthday party on Sat and in general take care of the kids all weekend. Well all of a sudden now he has told her that she can't go and actually told his boss that he would work Sat. His reasoning is that she is too old to be going to see bands and she was just back in the Philly area last month for her niece's birthday and she doesn't need to be going back out that way again (mind you she didn't see any of us at that time, only her family). The whole issue is that he is off his depression meds and he refuses to go back on them. He can be a jerk when he is on them but is 1000 times worse when he is off them. I was just out to see them after Christmas and he spent 3 days giving her a hard time for the house being a mess from the kids (it was really a mess, but in her defense she works 3 jobs, he was working overnights during the holidays so she was doing everything, not that he does much when he doesn't work overnights) and also complained about how she got a new cell phone and he didn't and how bought new boots. 1) She was up for a new phone, her old phone wasn't even hers, she borrowed it because her old one broke and the phone was free. 2) The boots were $25 from Payless and payed for with a VISA gift card her boss gave her for Christmas. The other part of the issue is that he has no friends and hates that she is a social butterfly (I swear she will talk to anyone) and loves being out doing stuff with the kids. Anyway I am just totally bummed about it. I know I just saw her, but this was going to be the first time in about 5-6 years that all 5 of us were together.
