This post isn't necessarily wedding related, but I didn't know where else to turn.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home. We have been diligently working on updating, unpacking, and all the things that come with a new home. We are to the stage where we can plan our housewarming party.
However, here's the situation: My sister and her husband are in the process of purchasing their house. I thought it would be nice to ask my sister their closing date, because I know it's coming up within the next few weeks. My parents are wanting to "host" our housewarming. I know invitations should be sent out at least 2 if not 3 weeks in advance. DH and I have looked at the calendar and though we want to have it this month, it may not be feasible. We have discussed pushing it to next month, but it appears doing so causes a major conflict because that's when my sister and her husband close on their house. I feel like every time I have a milestone/big event planned, my sister always finds a way to change the focus from me to her. Then I end up feeling like the bad person, or I am selfish because I've got an agenda that works best for me but doesn't accommodate my sister's plans. I'm getting to the point where though I love my family, but I am tired of always feeling letdown and hurt. I've also began thinking, maybe I should stop including my family in things since I am always an inconvenience. Hoping for advice.
