Me: BS (32)
I just got home from my staff Christmas party. I can't believe how much fun I had! I thought it would be weird being one of the only people without a spouse, but it turns out several people came alone. There was one brief conversation about WH because (I guess) not everyone knew that we're separated. This surprised me because though we're teachers and we're legally
not allowed to talk about another teacher behind their back, I kinda assumed that people would at least mention that I'm separated.
Anyway, the party was awesome. I didn't stay too long, but I managed to get a good gift during the exchange, a door prize, and some jello shooters. I originally said no to the shooters since I was driving, but decided to take them home with me. Only two though, nothing crazy
I've realized over the last couple weeks that I really, really like the staff at this school, and I hope I can make this my permanent home (on a temp transfer presently).
Another positive is that until that one moment, I never even thought about WH at all. This was my first real event (without supportive family at my side) since we split. I would list it as a success :)
