Sad :(

I am a little sad.

I had a bunch of people over last night and we had a great time. Sat around eating and talking, it was great! that's not what I am sad about.

There are many bonus's about being single. You don't have to cook if you don't want to, you can make your room anyway you want to...

...but last night when people were talking about having people over, I thought... I never get invited to those things. I was talking to my friend the other day and she said, oh, I just met So&So and his wife, So& Sew, I think I am going to have (a list of people) over for dinner. I wasn't on the list and I know all of those people and I get along with those people, but I don't get thought of, I think, because I am not part of a couple. I am not part of "The Fillinlastname's". If I was to get invited over, there's no one for the husband "to play with". (And by the way - J&T never do this)

You know, I am well aware of what's missing in my life, and I know people don't mean to but sometimes I feel like it gets thrown in my face again, just like when I was a kid, I get picked last.

I don't know, maybe they just don't like me...

Dear God, Your good works are abound in Thailand Lord, please give the people that are being touched peace so they are open to Your word, and Salvation that comes only from knowing and accepting You. In Jesus' mighty name. Amen

oh margie, i'm so sorry you've been hurt. i can't speak for the people who you were hanging with but i never think in terms of couples or singles. just friends and brothers and sisters. but i will be extra aware of being sensitive thanks to your honesty. p.s. someday God's gonna reveal that man he created for you. please don't make me dress like a swimming pool to be in your wedding.

There's nothing scarier than a clown.

What a sad but true revelation. I can see that happening. Shame on the world. I never had anyone over because I'm anti-social, but if I did, I sure hope I wouldn't think that way. I have a wedding to attend next month and my husband isn't invited! How's that for a total reverse discrimination, I have to go with a co-worker and not our significant others!! GEEZZZ!

no, there's nothing scarier than dressing up like a swimming pool and looking like a circus clown!

girl i FEEL you!
i have to endure countless tales of all the fun everyone had at whatever spectacular event they went to. they all think in
"2"'s so they never even consider me over here all by myself looking stupid. i know they dont do it intentionally (at least i hope not) but it still stings a little bit. i got a b-day card that was signed "blah & blah" what seemed like a zillion times from every couple in the universe and tho i was very happy to get it, in my head i was like "i hate you all".
but what can ya do... they dont speak single any more than i speak couple.
