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.
