A Pre-Thanksgiving Pout

Friday, November 22, 2013

I had planned to write a thing for Five on Friday, but I really wasn't feeling it. To be honest, it would be more accurate to say that most of last night I was pouting.

I had hoped that John would be coming up for Thanksgiving. He had mentioned something about getting a plane ticket. So last night I asked if he was planning to come up. He said no, he didn't want to make his family upset by coming to see me over Thanksgiving. Plus that his friend was going to be alone over Thanksgiving.

This is when I started pouting and throwing my hissy fit while trying to guilt John into coming. It wasn't my finest hour or exactly something I'm proud of. But he had promised we would see each other in November...

I know I'm being ridiculous. I wish I could take it in stride and say that there are plenty of other holidays we will get to celebrate together. That I'm lucky he isn't deployed. But there is something inside me that makes me want to yell and cry all at the same time.

I hate it when I feel this way. Rationally I know I shouldn't be getting upset but no matter how much I tried last night I couldn't get away from those feelings. Luckily I'm feeling better today. Sleeping seems to be like the refresh button for my mind. Maybe I can keep the hissy fits to a minimum from now on.

  1. Aw I've been there. My bf only lives about an hour and a half away but we pretty much only see each other on wknds. So i sometimes get upset if he has to cancel last minute. But my distance is really insignificant compared to other people's so i can't complain.

  2. That's always difficult, Ashley! I'm a soon-to-be Army wife (getting married in January), but I know how it feels to spend holidays, birthdays - all of it - apart! It won't last forever though, so just remember that! Big hugs :)

    I'm your newest follower. Happy Friday!

  3. I don't think you are being ridiculous at all! You are going to be his family.

  4. Stay positive! and you are not being ridiculous!
