Do My Friends Suck?

My 30th birthday is in 2 weeks. In late January, I planned a trip to New Orleans to celebrate, and invited 10 friends of my closest friends. Of course my sister is coming, but only like 5 more said they would come. And in the last week, all of them have bailed on me. Every one except my sister, and Bethany, who already lives in New Orleans. Some friends I have.
Why does my birthday have to suck every year?! WHY!? I mean I expect it to suck, cuz it always does, but this year is my 30th, and I wanted it to be special, and I wanted to spend it with my friends. And I mean, New Orleans is driving distance from Houston, so it's not that big of a deal. And of course Taryn tells me she can't go, when she's in Puerto Rico, with her new boozy bestie, who I'm not a fan of. Ugh. She can go to fucking Puerto Rico, but she can't come to New Orleans for her supposed best friends birthday?! She's known about this since JANUARY!!
I'm just so upset!!
Is this normal?? Because I know that I'm a good friend. I don't flake on people. I never forget birthdays. I sent cards, and buy prezzies and throw fucking surprise parties! Why do none of my friends ever do stuff like that for me!? Is that too much to ask? Seriously. Is it?

I know how you feel, my friends are the same way. I had 6 bridesmaids, one came to my bachelorette party (my sister/MOH who planned it).

But, Happy Dirty Thirty! Thirty is the next 20, so embrass it!

Totally know how you feel. My boyfriend and I are always saying to each other how we seem to better friends than our best friends to us. We always seem to make the extra effort and don't get it back.

I'm always jealous of people who seem to have 'true' best friends. I haven't had one of those since high school. Too bad we don't live near each other! I'm in Canada!

*Hugs* -T

Well, your friends may have let you down on your birthday, but apparently you have found something to keep you busy! Where have you been and what are you up to?
