That does not like to go to showers. Baby showers, wedding showers...I just can't do it anymore. I'm happy for the person, but I'd rather stay home. Half the people at these events I hardly know. I'm not much for small talk, and really, you know how that is at these showers. I come home with a sore facial muscles from a fake smile. I got an invite to my step daughter's grandbaby shower. How do I tactfully get out of it? Even hubby will side with me after I tell him how these things usually go. He suggested that we made that date for a trip weeks ago. I think it'll work. Anybody got good ideas? If you enjoy these things, good for you. But I don't. I think it's because I've had my share of them.
