>>>I have a stack of Christmas gifts from our family for her family so I was thinking I would just drop them outside their door.

HMMM...this bothers me.

I thought Sadie had great advice. If I were you, my antennae would be up as well. I'd wait until after the holidays and then check in with her. As far as NYE, if she needs your help, and has already suggested the families hanging out, then surely she'll be in touch soon.

There could be a million of completely understandable reasons why she's been out of touch lately... I wouldn't take it to heart too much. Its a really busy time of the year & its very possible that she could just be overwhelmed. I would agree with the others that said to give her a little space & see what happens...

Good luck & keep us posted...

If you've been everyday friends for 5 years and you see a sudden change in that, I'll bet she IS upset over something...whether it's something YOU did or she thinks you did or it may be something completely separate from you (argument with her hubby or problems with her extended family, health issue she isn't ready to talk about???).

It seems as if your relationship has not changed except for the fact that you noticed your were the one

have it always been this way? or is this fairly recent? if it is fairly recent i think asking if something is wrong is alright. but if this is just how it has always been in the 5yrs you have know her/him then this is just normal and you just now are seeing it openly.
