A Weekend Without Racquetball Guy

I am no longer going to Minnesota for the weekend. This I learnt around 7:30am this morning. I’m really disappointed as not only was I going to visit Mall of America for the first time, but was also going to the Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Los Angeles Lakers playoff game. We were going to be in the owners box. Damn! But it is not to be. Racquetball Guy went on a business trip yesterday that was successful in landing a new client for the firm and so he and another guy have to work this weekend at the request of the company President as the transition needs to take place as soon as possible. He was very apologetic and I could tell that he too was really disappointed by our cancelled weekend plans. He also told me that he will be going out of town (really out of country) on business next Wednesday for three weeks. So I’m feeling pretty blue and I haven’t done a thing all day. I’ve grown so attached to him these past two months. I’m trying not to get emotional about things but feeling really emotional. I know our relationship is strong and will survive this separation but there is a project that we were supposed to start working on that will now get delayed. That is not a good thing for him or for us. So it will require him to take a bold stand and I’m not sure he can afford to do that right now. But hey, what do I know. I really don’t want to think about it. I’m going back to bed to sleep the rest of the day/night away.

  1. u have just officially become ursula riddle aroundaboutspeak. first there was the evil force. now, theres this project and staying strong. tha hell are u talking about? voodoo priestess in dude’s yard? u sound like the man is going to fight in the crusades instead of a business trip to …..where?…. st. thomas of all places.
    plus, whatever his issue…well n/m but i think the separation may do u 2 some good. if u can’t survive a 3 wk absence then NEXT! then again i’m down on anything with a penis right now so what do i know. i’m an idiot.

  2. I know this might sound a touch uncooth, but, :::in best Arnold Drummond voice:::
    “what chu talkin’ ’bout Ursula?”
    Whatever it is you are talking about, three weeks is a long time to be away from your newly appointed schnookie wookie bear. : / Just make sure he calls you every day when he’s out of town. Or maybe you could meet him out there for a weekend?

  3. i was thinking the meet up as surprise. u dun spoilt it macnasty!

  4. Well he doesn’t know if she gonna do it or not…and if she does…he doesn’t know WHEN! So it could still be a surprise!
    And why you want to go surprisin’ people anyway? That’s how folks get shot.

  5. My apologies for speaking in riddles, but all will be revealed in due time.

  6. see the gun shot is the surprise. peeka- BOOM -boo
    well, u know this is your space urs. i just feel like grabbing you, shaking you, and yelling “do us a favor and spit it the hell out already.”

  7. To all of the above – all I can say is Amen.

  8. Girl, I totally understand. My boy just left town for five weeks, and I’m barely surviving. I’m bored and lonely. I have nothing to do. OK, neither of those are true (mostly). I am bored. I am lonely. I have things to do, but they’re less engaging than thinking about how lonely I am. Hang in there. If it’s worth it, you’ll make it work. Good relationships need to be able to survive the times apart as well as the times together.
    As far as the dating rules, I say yes, he should at least give you the heads up that he won’t be around – even if he doesn’t go into any further detail. You would do the same for him. At this point he doesn’t need to check with you about his plans, but he should give you fair warning, especially after recently cancelling plans.
    But that’s just my 2c. I’ll be thinking of you. Get a good book and go out for coffee. Being in public helps me hold it together. *hug*
