My mom is wonderful! She does so much for us. She's generous with her time & yes, her money too. (She helps with the kids' clothes, shoes, etc.) Well, she went w/ some friends to see Elvis & Johnny Cash impersonators & raved about how good they were. She asked if we wanted to see them (her treat) I like Elvis, but am not a fan of Johnny Cash. Neither is my husb. I know the kids wouldn't care for any of it. They are performing at a county fair about an hr. away from us. Not only is it on a week day (work day), but I don't see the point if 1/2 our group wouldn't like any of it & the rest (except mom) only liked 1 of the 2 performers. So we declined her offer, but I could hear the disappointment in her voice. She said she'd see if her brother wanted to go. I think that would be better, if she took someone who wants to see both & would enjoy it as much as she did.
What do you think?

Oh, but yes, I would probably feel a little guilty until I knew that she secured another date.
Would my feelings be hurt if I were her? Not really. I would maybe be disappointed, but I would understand that an event an hour away on a weeknight when the other people attending with me work in the morning might not have the same level of commitment to attend.
