Mother’s Day Weekend
It has been a week. At times it felt long and others it clipped along. It is nearing the end of the day and I am ready to go home.
Yesterday, I went home crying. I work with the modern-day version of “Regina George”. Yes, the 39-year-old version. Yesterday, she came back to our area gossiping about someone on the other side of the building and mentioned the name of a friend who no longer works here.. Well, I am one that always protects my friends and I just tried to clarify the situation in regards to her involvement or basically the lack there of…
Regina did not want to hear it as it differed from her conversation. I was promptly told that “she did not care, she doesn’t even know the girl, she no longer works here and I wasn’t even talking to you.” Well…. . OK then, be specific because you came back and announced it to the whole department. If it was a private conversation send an FREAKIN email. Hahaha..
I really am not upset at the fact she was rude because that is normal in her case. I am most upset that I allowed myself to be upset. It is not worth it. Over the course of the past few years I have been weeding out the negativity and unwanted. It is not needed and drags me down. I guess this week I am just too emotional and I became the 17-year-old vulnerable to the insult.
Today, I have my back straight, my head held high and all things on ignore. Regina sits next to me.. Although I cannot see her as.. remember I am on ignore. Hahahaha…
We were going to travel this weekend. That has been cancelled as my parents have been ill for a couple of weeks so we will just take a day trip. Go for a drive somewhere nice and have a nice lunch the four of us. We will celebrate Mother’s Day in our own little way. This is a hard time of year for us. 25 years ago today my Grandmother passed away, 23 years ago May 2nd my cousin, 8 years ago, the 13th, my uncle and 3 years ago on the 16th my son. All on my Mother’s side of the family. Mother’s Day is a time we celebrate and reflect on those we love.
I will send wishes to Heaven and to the wind for each and every one of you and wish you all a very Happy Mother’s Day.
