Try not to bite off more than you can chew. Sometimes it’s better in the long-run to simply say “no” up front.
In the evening the mood can swing to grand enthusiasm, and “yes” seems to be an easier retort. It still may be in your better interests to reel in the impulse to take on it all.
Not everyone may make the transition as gracefully so if someone would rather stay home it’s best not to force enthusiasm.
