Holiday Weekends

It's so ironic that as a widow or widower, that when a holiday weekend comes up or a holiday in general we become invisible to everyone!

I throw my own party and invite friends to the BBQ!

Today is our 32nd wedding anniversary. My Red Hat gals always have a bbq so I am going of course. We had a big party here for our 30th. Hugs, Wendy

I feel bad for posting this journal entry because when I got home and started doing housework because I am off for the next three days, I was thinking I could plan a get together at my house if I wanted to. I have so many things to do and things that I want to do that I never really get bored. I should know better, and seriously I never really do sit around and feel sorry for myself. Thanks for your comments!

Don\'t be sorry about it. Be happy that you recognized that you can have an amazing time with friends! Have lots of fun!

I was thinking the same myself. Scott and I always hung out together on the 4th, and sometimes invited people to our place. Now, they dont include me but honestly that works just fine for me! I know I could reach out and have....setting my own terms on this!
hugs to you, Susan

Every holiday brings it\'s own sense of loss. It\'s something that takes time to build new memories for. I understand your feelings because I often think if you don\'t want to be alone why don\'t you plan something? Because it feels like more than I can handle without that extra pair of hands helping wash off the deck furniture, and generally being a pain telling me what I should do. It\'s a shame......I miss that pain right now and don\'t see it the same as I used to. Sharon :)
