- My ex-boyfriend a.k.a. Mr Wrong #11 hits me up and mentions he is planning a weekend getaway with his wife. It's their 1 year Wedding Anniversary. He asks for ideas. I recommend a spa/massage day in Calistoga. He says, "good call"! I'm (a bit) weirded out. -411 Sent via Yahoo Instant Messenger!
Items 1.) through 3.) seem reasonable. I have no problem being their resource person. Item 4.) on the other hand, I'm not so sure about. What did I just do?! It seemed a bit awkward. Wouldn't you agree? I should seriously stop offering my services to particular people such as ex's. Especially ex's! Am I too nice? Or am I just a naive person who doesn't know when to stop trying to please others. The moment has passed and now I will be envious because in a matter of three days, someone will enjoying a relaxing anniversary thanks to me. I won't be benefiting from it. There's nothing in it for me. I'll just be stuck working the usual 8 hour shift making sure Eli gets home safely from school, thinking about firm puppy fecal, figuring out what to cook for dinner, planning my evening exercise routine, suffering from neck pain due to a bad night's sleep, and tolerating these never ending knots on my back.
For the record - I'm long overdue for a spa treatment. 4 years over due to be precise!
