| Need Your Help

Yes, I have a little life dilemma. I would love your opinion, so here goes...here's the situation: I am away in the city (a few hours south of where I live) helping and supporting my cousin open her new floral boutique. I had made the decision to be with her for 10 days or so. I was going to go home next Tuesday. Today, I found out via s.o.s. phone call from my daughter that I had apparently promised my Mom that I would help her set up and run her garage sale this Saturday. I have absolutely no recollection of this date for the garage sale and it isn't written in my day planner (trust me everything is written in there) - I do remember a conversation on a few occasions about her (Mom) wanting to have a garage sale, but I honestly don't remember the date. My Mom is super disappointed and my cousin was counting on me to be with her for the next 5 days - lots to do to open a new shop - What should I do?

It's only a garage sale. Hardly a life altering event. Whereas the shop seems like this huge thing. I'd say drop the garage sale, not the friend.

Stay in the City...because we're selling all your stuff in the garage sale..
