Color me disappointed (<----understatement of the year.)

Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Geez, there are so many ways I could catch y'all up here because it's been a while since I last posted, but the only thing I've been able to think about for the past day is that Bear is not coming home in time for Christmas.

Technically, that means this year he'll have been gone for all of my favorite holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.) Did I mention that Thanksgiving is our one year anniversary? Yeahhhh. And this is after my birthday in September basically got pre-empted for a show. I'm growing more than weary of this.

For The Madre and I, these days have always been mellow but shared with the ones we love that are closest and most important to us - usually each other and/or our oldest friends. I was really looking forward to sharing that with him this year, since last year at this time we had just started officially dating and kept the holidays quite "light." I knew it was possible he wouldn't be home, but now that he's said it out loud it is a lot more real.

Honestly, I'm crushed. Right now I feel like all my holiday spirit is gone.

P.S. Though I truly appreciate the fact that some of my friends might think that inviting me out will help, please don't - it's not going to.

*Hugs hugs hugs hugs* Not inviting you out but if you want to come have a nice homemade dinner with us sometimes, please do! xoxo

Thanks V, you are so kind! I totally <3 you and the mister, I'm just afraid that being around happy couples (especially one that we have so much in common with ;)) will just sadden me further. That being said, I'm very very tempted since I know what great cooks you both are.

Somewhere there is a bright side or a silver lining or SOMETHING, but right now it is eluding me.

Aw, Jesus. I'm so sorry, Alyson.

That's a bummer! I hope he comes home soon after so that you can at least re-create a little Christmas for yourselves!

He did mention the idea of leaving the tree up for the next year. ;) Now I'm just not as excited about putting it up in the first place. :/

I've already got an amazing gift in the works, but all I really want is to be able to spend time with my best and closest friend - him.
