Date night ~ minus the date

Sunday, July 19, 2009 |
Last night I attended our friends dinner party as a single gal.
To be honest, I really don't mind most of time.
I'm use to flying solo and don't even give it a second thought.
I'm rather outgoing and chatty.
I look forward to going out.
It's an opportunity to dress up a little and act like an adult.
However, last night was different.
I felt oddly out of place and somewhat awkward.
I didn't really *fit in* with the crowd.
This is the first time in forever that I've felt this way.
I missed coming home and discussing the night with my husband.
Hearing his thoughts and reflections of the evening.
I'll be happy when he returns and I have a date again.

I feel for you, Jo. It's never fun being a third wheel.

I hear you. There are times when it's ok to fly solo and other times it just doesn't work. Here's to a sweet reunion. Soon.

I know Jo! I think we are allowed to have those down moments. At least you went.

We start school 3 Aug. Our summer is going so fast.

Jo,
It's healthy to every once in a while be reminded of how much you wish your guy was at your side. I know your's is away often but too much togetherness can be, well, too much. Remember my emails last January when I was in lock-down with home-schoolers & hubby at home? Ok deep breath...back to sunshine & fresh air & space!
Your new photo is wonderful & brightens up my list of daily reads! XO Lisa
