I am such a horrible liar! Especially when I want to be able to tell our phenomenal news.
We are really struggling with how to be around our friends, especially at holiday parties, and not telling them the one thing that's top on our list. Especially awkward when they offer you a cocktail and you have to stammer for an excuse as to why you don't want one. And you know what? To make it worse, my friends are pushers! "Oh, come on!" "What?! Shut up. Here, I got your favorite wine!" "Hahahaha, yeah right!"
We're just not ready to say anything yet and risk having to take the news back again. One particular group of our friends was so supportive, but they are at different stages in their lives. They really just cannot relate and I don't want to put that on them again. The girls at work all have baby fricken fever and I swear to God they are going to smell the pregnant on me. We're supposed to get together and bake next Saturday and every email says something like, "Oooh, fun! Cookies and WINE!" Doublefrick! Jeremy says to tell them I'm hungover.
I'm really starting to sound like a lush, aren't I? I'm really not! It's this time of year.
How do you lie without feeling or sounding like an idiot?
Any tips for avoidance?
Should I just cancel my appearances all together and not come out of my cave until sometime next month?
