But that's just a lot of water
I'm reminded how far away from DDay I am...on so many levels.
AJs mom's thread got me to thinking.
In the last few weeks there's been some personnel chaos at my SOs office. This has meant a change to his schedule temporarily. He told me last week. He'll be working a swing shift on Thurs/Fri for a few weeks. Yep that means V-day too. This is fine. We don't usually celebrate those days. I'll get him a card probably but that's about it.
6 years ago, I was rapidly approaching D-day. It was a year when my X forgot V-day and My Bday a month later. The following year, in the middle of a brief false R on V-day, I was panicked b/c X wasn't where he was supposed to be. I was SURE he was with OW. He wasn't but ultimately didn't matter. Now, not only do I not really care that much about V-day, it doesn't even raise an eyebrow that my SO is working late that night. Peace is a lovely thing.
I will probably go skiing or some such fun all by myself w/o a care in the world on Friday night. Screw you Hallmark!
