New Year 2020

Wednesday, January 01, 2020

I hope all of you had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. Mine was all exciting. Well, atleast, at first.

The roommate’s were going to be out for the afternoon. Which left me in appetizer mode. I told them I’d have appetizers waiting for them and to be hungry.

I thought a little healthy and a little comforting.

So, I prepared:

Cheeseburger dip
Party salsa dip
Party franks

I had three boxes of an assortment of crackers for dipping.

Mind you, they’d only be gone for a short while.

They pulled in at 9 pm.

One roommate went straight to bed. The other was not hungry as they had stopped and gotten fast food.

A little while ago, the roommates put a pork roast in the Crock-Pot, knowing I hate pork. I guess I have dip and franks to rely on.

How would you feel if you were me?

When the ball dropped last night, there were tears in my eyes, knowing my resolution is never going to come true.

Have a blessed New Year.

    I am so sorry that your evening didn't turn out how you had hoped!

    What I have been having to do for the past year, that might help you in the future, is to release my expectations of other people, and just keep doing the things that I enjoy. It's hard, at first, but then after awhile I realized that I can't change people and how they act. I can only change my expectations -- and I will say that I have to keep remembering this and keep working on it. (Google "quotes about expectations" and you'll find a lot of good ones on the subject.)

    You are a nurturer, and you are a thoughtful person to have happily prepared the appetizers for them. It's sad that they didn't appreciate it.

    Keep being the kind person that you are!

    You have more than dips and franks to rely upon, you have yourself. Open the communication lines with your roomies, tell them how you feel and then move on with your life. Their loss, your gain. emoticon emoticon
