Just feeling sad and need to whine/vent.
Today would have been my sixth wedding anniversary, Saturday is my 35th B-Day, and then Mother's Day on Sunday.
I'm newly single after being with my xSO for a year and a half which has been tough. I have a well paying job (healthcare) but feel trapped and can't do what I really want to do (law enforcement) due to my age, having to work full-time while doing it, job market, etc. This all compounds the fact that my B-Day is Saturday and I'm not where I thought and hoped I'd be. Here I'm single, older, and a single parent to 4 yr old twins with an XH who lives two states away and doesn't see his children. That's the short version.
My family doesn't celebrate B-Days (or Mother's Day or any holidays for that matter), I have no SO and my children are young. Sometimes it's nice to just get a card for your B-Day and Mother's Day just to know you're thought of! Ya know? At least I'll get some B-Day wishes on Facebook though.
Maybe I'll take myself shopping for a B-Day present!
I know things can always be worse but this is still hard. Sorry for the whiney vent.
