It started out with an office party at a spa resort but there wasn't any spa-ing or resorting. It was at an exquisite place but the food was questionable. Usually, the company gives pretty good gifts but with the economy being a bummer, we all got coffee mugs with our names etched on them. Nice but the green would've been even nicer!!!
Saturday, my ex came up to have dinner with our daughter. He came a bit on the early side since her lunch break wasn't for another 3 hours. (How did he become an early bird???) Since he had my puppy with him, he came here for me to spend time with her. Funny, the little poopsie totally dissed me! She has fallen in love with him and trotted in with her head held high and when it was time to leave, climbed in her "spot" on his lap in his Corvette.
He and I went out for drinks and to talk. Thankfully, the conversation was pleasant and nothing about our marriage or relationships now. I didn't want to go there. He did slip and called me "Babe" at least three times. He used to call me that when we were married. I guess old habits die hard.
He was a big help getting my stereo speakers plugged in right and fixing a few other things. For a moment...just for a quick moment...I missed him and us. The day after Christmas would've been our 23rd wedding anniversary so yes...this time of year is always very, very hard for me.
