All Dressed Up With No Place To Go......

I'm sitting here at home making another entry to this blog and my feelings are hurt. I had plans to be somewhere else doing something that I really wanted to do, but it didn't work out, for whatever reason. I made all the necessary arrangements...and then....nothing. When is it that one should know better? How is someone supposed to know NOT to go ahead and make arrangements? I'm a single mom who works a lot and I rarely make plans because it's hardly ever convenient for me to just be me without being a mom and being someone else's employee. Then when things don't work out for whatever reason, I feel like I have wasted everyone else's time because I set everything up and got ready and then didn't actually go anywhere or do anything. Basically, I let my son have a sleepover in the middle of the week on a school night, so he is thrilled. I wish I could find some way to be only half as happy about it. I can't help but feel foolish. I'm a 40 year old woman who has been through this more than a couple of times. Did I fail to plan properly? Did I misread something? I obviously missed something important.....again. I am extremely selective so I don't make plans with everyone who asks. Actually, the ones who I do make plans with are really nice guys, so it's not fair to lump them in with the masses. It has to be something that I do or don't do that results in nights like this. I'm not even angry or surprised about being here to type this.....I am just surprised that I let myself get excited and make plans. So, at what point is any of this futile? When is it that one just quits? I guess the better question at the moment would be how much Crown Royal does it take to quit feeling stupid....

Not because your 40'ish or a single mom, Im a single dad, It's TRUE friends that don't leave you hanging. Abet too few and far between. Q: how many licks does it take to get to the bottom of the crown royal? Never "feel" stupid, that only happens when you actually are.

It isn't your err--it is the other persons. What you have to do is remember that you didn't fail, they did. I hurt for you. I hurt every time I hear of such a story. What you have to do is place blame squarely where it belongs--on the person who failed you. You succeeded in getting excited about a new adventure--which is appropriate. You succeeded in making good plans--which was a success. The only part that broke down on what could have been a wonderful evening was the other person. Alcohol won't fix that problem. You need resolve, not to dissolve. Go after it again girl, and this time you may win.
