I kind of feel like I make God roll his eyes in frustration at least 10 times per day.
Like, I know God doesn't swear...but he might let out a little "fffffff" out once in a while in my general direction before he catches himself and bites his lip.
Because I'm difficult.
In the past year, seemingly without any (okay, much) input from me I have:
- Finished paying off over $10K after a very unsuccessful relationship
- Scored my dream job
- Had a 5lb, 6 inch diameter *benign* tumor removed (along with my uterus...)
- Been told I have glaucoma and then told all previous signs of glaucoma have gone
- Found a home in my dream neighbourhood, so Q can go to our dream high school and play for our dream minor hockey league
- Lost 10lbs...
And those are just the MAJOR things. I've also seen my BFF twice, been to Toronto to see the fam jam, went to Hawaii with Q for a week, and booked a two week vacation that takes us across the country.
That reads like a pretty fantastic year. And of course, I am so so *so* thankful. And I know that I have been blessed because all of these things have been beyond my power (especially the weight loss...I have no idea how that happened). Paying off the G's, I'm not going to lie, was realllllllly hard...but I did it and it's done.
Here's the thing...
I feel like the kid at Christmas who just woke up, ran downstairs, opened all the amazing presents and then looks around at all the gifts with big elephant tears and a wobbly chin and says, "but where's the unicorn? I really, really, really wanted an unicorn. I *asked* for an unicorn."
I really thought my unicorn (a.k.a. husband) would have shown up by now.
This is where God rolls his eyes.
When Mr. Ex and I broke up 9 (nine!) years ago, I had this overwhelming sense of hope that my husband was just around the corner...but here we are nine years later, and my hope has turned to apathy and cynicism and bitterness.
Our move this time is a little bittersweet, because I said the last time I moved was that the next time I moved I would be married.
I AM NOT MARRIED
And not only am I not married, I am nowhere close to being married. I'm not even dating.
Some people don't need/want to be married. They're good on their own.
I am not that person.
I crave that companionship. I don't want to be making all the decisions anymore. I don't want to be the one that unclogs the toilet. I don't want to be the one to blame every time I forget something at the grocery store. I want to cuddle. I want to Netflix and chill, people. I want to go on vacations together (I've never actually done that, can you believe it?!?!). I want to make horrible dinners and burn the food. I want someone else to pay a freaking bill once in a while.
I feel like if I *had* a uterus it would be shrivelling up by. the. day. It would look like a raisin. I'm not even kidding, you guys. I'm not 25 anymore. I am getting older by the day. My age almost starts with a 4 and ends with an 0. Men my age are looking for 25 year old virgins who want to start a family. You know what that leaves me? Probably with pervs and 60 year old's...haha. ha. My life feels like the best years are behind me.
I'm *trying* to find inspiration and I'm trying to not feel sorry for myself and I am trying to feel overwhelmingly blessed and thankful and happy.
WHY can't I just be happy?
Okay....you guys totally felt it this time too...
God just rolled His eyes again.
