    Default It's that time of year again

    I always seem to feel a bit sad around the special occasions during the year. So it's happening again with Easter. I get my boys home this arvo ... Yay!!! But I still feel a little off. Not sure what it is ... Maybe all the happy holiday family snaps I'm seeing in instagram. Who knows??

    Does anyone else get that way??

    I get annoyed. But fob spends Christmas mornings here and we go out for dinner for the kids birthday but it would be nice if he was at their parties, but I guess it's better then nothing.

    Not sure what's happening for Easter he is coming for his regular dinner tonight, I haven't asked if he is coming on Sunday for the egg hunt and he hasn't offered..

    I don't really get upset during xmas or easter. FOB hasn't asked to see DS over easter (probably because it isnt his weekend to have him) but does see him each xmas. He didn't want to see DS on fathers day last year because it wasn't his weekend to have him even though DS had made him a Fathers Day Gift . I do get a bit sad about Mothers Day though.

    That reminds me fob didn't see the kids on Father's Day as it falls on Sunday and he was here on Friday. That gave me the sh!ts as DD was excited about it, he didn't come.

    It's always been like this for me :/ I became a single mum 8 days before Christmas and it started with a really crappy day and I've never seemed to shake it.

    I'm thinking I'm not embracing this single life as much as I normally do lately. Like I'm starting to wish for a partner to share things with. Gah!!! How do I make that go away and get back to my 'I am woman, hear me roar' stage?? Ha

    It doesn't bother me. I like celebrating special occasions however suits DD and me and not having to worry about arguments, bad moods, expectations, inlaws and exhaustion.
