If you had asked me on Monday, you were going to be my favorite day this week. I was excited for your arrival as it meant that I would be leaving work early to head to the beach. I was so excited to spend the weekend at the beach with my sister and nephews. I haven't seen them since Memorial Day and wanted to get away for the weekend. Sadly, Will has a cousin that passed away and our trip got cancelled. At first, I was annoyed and wanted to stomp my feet and cry and tell Will "I've never even met this cousin and you haven't seen him in 7 years." I won't say I wasn't a little whiney about it (and a couple other disappointments this week), but I'm mostly over it now. Will volunteered to go with his mom to the funeral so that I could go ahead to the beach. Of course, I want to do that, but no one wants to be that girl. "Hey Will-where's your new wife?" "Oh, she went to the beach..." Yeah, like I said, no one wants to be that girl. I'm an adult and can deal with life's disappointment. After all, someone lost a son. Someone else lost a father. Another person lost a spouse. I can handle a missed beach trip.
So, Friday, you've been just another day. Maybe next Friday will bring along something more exciting.
