As I started to think about writing this I was reminded of my favorite part of the Cinderella play that aired on TV when I was a child. While her stepmother and stepsisters were getting ready for the ball. She sat in a little chair and sang a song of all the imaginary places she would go to and all the things she would do while sitting safely all alone in her little corner in her own little chair.
November 8 is the 4th anniversary of my marriage to Tag. Three months before this date we made our plans, first of which was to make sure we had to whole week off from work. We talked about the places we could go, the people we could visit, the things we could and how much it would cost. Redid the budget so bill would get paid and we could still vacation.
We talked about visiting Terri in KY. She had been having some difficult times being alone and I just wanted to reassure her that she was close enough for us to get to her and just hang out with her for a couple days.
We talked about visiting the Murphy is SC. It had been a while since we heard from them and so it would be nice to visit them and see Debbie and Michelle. They have boat like the gateway clipper fleet here in the city so it would be fun to try out there and have dinner or a lunch cruise would also be nice. I was sure that we could do this and visit Terri.
We talked about visiting his sister in TN. She just bought a Condo and the pictures are very nice and it would be fun to hang out there and pretend like we lived there. At least until she came home from work every day.
But not of these were very romantic vacations and focused on us just being together.
SL at work gave me a great idea for a vacation. I talked to Tag and he agreed that it was more like what he wanted to do. It was a beautify resort in Myrtle Beach. Big hotel rooms some had Jacuzzi tubes. It was confirmed that we would do this. However the money was not there for us to make the reservation. I wanted for him to let me know when to set it up. That day never came.
The problems with plans are that they are always changing so those are imaginary until they happen! Because while you are planning you are imagining all the things you will say, do etc.
So Monday October 29th I learn that he made plans to do work on the weekend of our anniversary vacation. I asked how this is to be. It was explained to me that we were not staying the whole week. Oh, then he said we have to use your pocket money for the trip.
My pockets are empty with my pocket money in it. O, please man! So no anniversary vacation. So should I just sit all alone in my own little corner all alone in my own little chair? Yea, right!
