Last weekend, we got royally spoiled. It was 73 degrees here in central VA on Sunday. Amazingly beautiful day. I spent part of it at spinning group, but I couldn't sit still because it was SO nice outside. It's an hour's drive here to there, then back another hour, so I took off early and drove home with the windows down and music blaring. It's how I roll when I'm alone, the sun is shining and the temps are in the 70's. :-)
I know Spring is right around the corner. I don't want to wish days away because every day is a gift to me. After having a heart attack that killed me back in 2007, and dealing with cancer of the uterus in 2011, I love living every day.
When he's not working, taking care of the horses, or doing the work that comes along with having a 5.5 acre farm, we are together. Whether it be going out shopping, eating lunch out, or he's going along with me to find something that I have in mind that I MUST have, we are together. Or, we are watching our nightly shows on t.v. Yeah, probably not healthy, but it's what we do.
I spent many years where he did his own thing, and I brought up the kids. Dance classes, dance competitions, traveling here and there to find costumes or dance shoes or dance outfits. Yeah, I was a dance mom, but never ran into what you see on t.v. now-a-days. Thank God! While I was working and traveling here and there with our daughter, Husband was out working for the Army being a soldier, or playing one of the many sports he used to play, or keeping in shape (for the Army), or doing whatever he did. I spent many years wondering why he didn't want to be with me.
It's days like today that I get up, and there's no one else to play with. My friends either work, or just have other interests. Someone I thought was my friend, who I tried to be there for during some tough times, totally never saw me as her friend. She thinks that because we have different interests, that we don't have anything in common. I really like her, and like spending time with her, but I always get the feeling she's bored with me, and doesn't really enjoy MY company. So I'm backing off from her.
There are yet other people that I guess are friends. Maybe my definition of a friend, needs to be different. I guess there are friends. Then there are acquaintances. Most of the people I know are really the latter. Not the former.
I'm grateful I have my husband. I'd like to have him, AND have friends that like to spend time with me.
I'm also grateful I have my hobbies, and that my husband supports me having them.
If I don't get back before this weekend, Happy Valentine's Day.
Anyway, I hope you have many good friends, and that you enjoy your life every day. I certainly try to. Even if I get a little down now and then, I work on appreciating my days.
