I hate Friends Reunited. Because of them (and my vanity) I may have only 4 weeks to lose at least a stone-and-a-half, buy an Audi TT and marry someone younger and possibly more attractive than my current husband.
What to do, what to do ?
Shall I take a long hard look at my:
- messy (but mortgage free) home
- dirty, driveable (but loan free) car
- beautiful, healthy, smart (though often rude, surly, argumentative and sometimes selfish) daughters
- (annoying, unwilling to agree with everything I say nor hang on my every word) husband
and count my blessings ?
Shall I pull out some honest curiosity and take a long hard look at how the lives of others have turned out, without wanting to measure my life against theirs ?
Reunions are hard, they force you to look at the ‘You’, you thought you would be by now ……… and what if you’re not there yet ? (And even worse, what if the girl you hated at school is you plus so much more ?)
Luckily, I’m a coach, so I know how to count my blessings and move on. (Plus, if I actually owned an Audi TT Roadster I would love it so much I’d probably have to sleep in it, and that’s just silly.)
