Your family obligations are at the center of your world right now, and they could be causing a conflict in your social life. Explain the situation to your friends honestly and completely -- don't leave out any details that you think aren't important, because all the information is relevant. They have families too, and will understand why you are reorganizing your priorities. They might even offer to help you out and take some weight off your load.
