need to cancel a road trip
I just found out that my niece, her husband and their new baby are coming to visit. They live in Israel. The problem is that I did not know my niece was planning to visit until today and I just planned a road trip with a friend of mine. I am very close with my brothers kids and would drop everything for them.
A few more details. My friend is 28. I am 54. She is not as close to any of her family and has no nieces or nephews and most likely never will. And, lastly, I will be in Israel for about 2 weeks a month prior to my nieces visit but will only see the family on a limited basis because I am going on a women's program.
Is it acceptable for me to cancel the road trip? My friend is upset because she had switch her schedule around in order to take this trip. I know if the tables were turned I would understand. My friend, however, stays that she would never had canceled.
Im looking for advise.
