Men: Have you ever left your family for a weekend for a trip with your best buds?
I’m dealing with this situation. I’m seeking strictly guy answers for no reason in particular so sorry in advanced if you are offended. My best buddy is leaving to the Navy in Oct. We’ve been talking about a drive from San Diego to San Francisco but now it’s become a reality and I really only got two weeks official notice from my buds!
So as you can imagine, I had to deal with work on the weekends and I got the ok from my manager. The kicker is I’ll be paying more in babysitting, losing money by not working the weekend, and feeling guilty for not helping out with my 1 year old son that weekend (as in not being able to pick him up from babysitting or dropping him off)
Have you ever been in this sort of “self-fish” situation?
Did you go for the trip and never regretted it? Did you not go on the trip and regret it? How did it play out for you. I’m asking as a father and not as a “bro” of the buddies.
