Call...Rats

As Doc H left the house this morning at 6 am, he reminded me he was on-call until...

Monnnnnnndaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy.


Rats. I'm on my own 'til then.

Time to ramp up and mentally prepare myself for attending the following in solitude...
One homecoming football game
One of D2's half-time performances
Homecoming dance pre-party
Chauffeuring kids to homecoming dance
LB's sport tournament
...and that does not include all the regular practices between now and then.

Although, it's not the driving that gets me. It's attending the events alone. And really, it's not just merely attending the event alone. I can do alone...when I don't know anybody there. I'm friendly. I'll make a friend or two. 

It's attending events when the ex's will be there... and worse... when they are there with a current BF/date that really puts knots in my thong. How's that for honesty?

It's just... AWKWARD.

But, like a soldier... I will continue on and do my duty and just keep chanting to myself..
I'm living a great life,
I'm living a great life,
I'm living a great life!
...and breath deeply and remember now matter how upset I am for having to attend these events alone, my Doc H is even more upset for missing them entirely.

:::sigh:::

  1. Call till Monday? That's what he gets for taking off last week - pay back:-) Or at least that feels like the game around here. The ex has a girlfriend and they come to the kids events? Good for the kids I suppose, but that really stinks for you. So do you get all dolled up for these events alone? I know I would.

    1. Yes. That's what he gets for taking one week "off" to attend a medical conference. Bleh...
      You better bet I'll be curling my eyelashes... ;o)

  2. that sounds rough... but good job on your mantra... i'd also use that opportunity to remember why the ex is the ex, and be relieved in particular that you're not the one sitting next to him anymore. ;)

    It's all about the spin. "Hey there, Mr. Ex! I see you've found yourself a new flavor of the month. Fantastic! Whatever happened to the last little bimbo? Ah, well, these things happen... oh, my husband? He couldn't make it. He's a very important man, you know, and he's somewhere busy making me lots of money."
