Games People Play

Hello!!! I made it to Pittsburgh! Um...so when they said my hotel was close to the airport, they weren't joking. I have no idea how I'm going to get any sleep for the next 3 nights. The planes are so close to the hotel that I could probably wave to the passengers and get a wave goodbye back. 

I don't know what it is with work trips but every time they break out ugly behavior. Maybe it's the fact that you get trapped in a car for hours at a time? Maybe it's the fact that you get away from home so people treat things like it isn't their own?

Oh well...it's only a few days!

Oh sweets. My best friend here has a husband in the same battalion and he has flight dates already. Z doesn't. Sometimes information is distributed incorrectly, randomly, or rumors just fly.

Hopefully it is something like that.

Hang in there. Maybe you just need a mental breather from all of this for a while? One of those "the tighter you hold on, the more you make them want to run" situations? I'm praying for you.

Oh Jen!! Bless your little heart. Maybe once he gets back and his a little adjustment period things will improve.

You just stay positive your life isn't crap!! :) While it is entirely possible that he's being an ass; avoiding you and such. It is also possible that the phones actually were down and he was unable to use the phone just like d.a.r. said. :)

While we have all been in a crapy relationship or two and had some pretty crappy things done to us by those males... I think generally Guy's don't have enough energy to fake a relationship. You know? Maybe I've just got my head in the sand though...?

Good luck darlin! You stick it out as long as it feels right... trust yourself and what you know of Matt.

jenn said...

oh girl!
take this time for yourself to get away from it all!!
i know its a work trip but, at least you are away from the same day-to-day stuff.

and you never know...maybe the phones/internet are down...that happens to my husband quite often.

trust yourself and keep your head high!!
you deserve to be treated like a queen...don't settle for less. you deserve to be ADORED!!! :)

Erin said...

I am so sorry you are going through this. Whatever the reason for his behavior, it must be so agonizing.

Jenn said...

Although you know how we feel about the whole situation, it is possible that the lines were down. Also, there is no way they know the EXACT date. There is never an exact date. It's always a window. You know why? Because the Air Force does not do their flight plans until the night before. Yeah, so that is not true. Especially this far out.

Mrs R said...

It might not be like that. Rumor always get started when it gets closer to coming home. Yes, he may just be an ass but try to stay positive and do what's best for you.

MG said...

Seriously, don't beat yourself or him up over the phones. They are the best/worst things ever for deployment. I always hated telling anyone when C would call because everyone's ability to make/get phone calls are completely different. Just because one soldier can make a call doesn't mean the others can. It's tough, but just try to stay calm, and know that he will call when he can.

Ashley said...

Honey, phones over there SUCK!! And it is CRAZY to get a return date so soon. Not saying that it isn't possible. David has never found out until a few days before and then it would change again. Just take this trip as time to yourself and go have a few drinks and have fun!!

Jennifer said...

I guess I should state that the other person who got called, he received the call from HIM so the phones were working. He just didn't call me.

Running In Stilettos said...

You know my feelings on this situation...sending ya hugs!

A Little Pink... said...

Hopefully it's just being away that is screwing with his head... When he comes back he will hopefully snap out of this and realize what he has with you! If he doesn't now, he WILL someday and will kick himself at how stupid he's being!

Jenn said...

Ok, so I see the issue. Still there is no way they have EXACT dates.

Have you ever watched How I Met Your Mother? This may be totally random, but you should watch it if you haven't. It's super funny. But that's not my point. The whole 4 seasons don't have anything to do with the woman the main character marries, but it shows how one person can lead to another and how it's all about being in the right place at the right time. And how sometimes the way you think your life will turn out is totally opposite of how it does. Plus it's hilarious.

Brittany said...

Okay so your above comment about How I met Your Mother has me worried... Hubby wants me to watch it when he gets home! GREAT!

Jessica said...

I agree with d.a.r., far too often that kind of stuff does happen. I wouldn't jump the gun just yet.

I, personally, would just take it day by day and go from there. Live your life for you and only you right now and see what happens when he gets back. Enjoy your time in PA and try not to think of it.

If you need anything let me know.

JP said...

Sending positive thoughts your way. Hopefully everything will turn around soon.

Mandy said...

I'm sure that once he is home and readjusted things will be better. People in the same units can often get different info. Hope it all gets better for you!

Mr. and Mrs. Top Gun said...

Hugs!!! Life sucks sometime doesn't it? I think you need to remember that you are a strong, determined, intelligent and gorgeous woman and know that you can and will get through this 'minor road block' in life!

Mr. Top Gun gets told different info all the time regarding his flights, and lately people have just been stupid and saying what they think is right, not what is actually the truth. My prayers are with you and remember I am here if you need to vent- ever!

hisMrs said...

I'm prayin for you girl. Hang in there. You deserve WAY better than this. You are a great great girl! Never forget that.

Sunshinemeg said...

I'm am sorry girl. Hopefully there is some explanation. One step at a time...

rena said...

I'm so sorry - you seem like such a sweet person and I know all of this stuff can be so frustrating! I hope everything works out!

My name is Megan... said...

keep your head up! Your life WILL not turn to crap! You will find your person and your way. Maybe there are already in your life...maybe they are confused...maybe they aren't around yet. Either way, you need to do what is best for you and put you first!

JenellyBean said...

Smile!
Think positive thoughts.

Cookie Crums said...

Enjoy your "vacation" and try not to stress too much. Men can be complete ass! But hang in there!!

**Hug**

SS said...

Oh girl, this stuff sucks...it hurts... IT is crap, but you have a lot going on in your life that is so not crap. Try to hang on to those things to help get your thru the crappy relationship stuff.

I've given up on trying to figure out why guys do things the way they do, I just hope for your sake that it all gets straightened out one way or another and as soon as it possibly can.

The Adventures of Maverick & the Mrs. said...

Ok dear, first things first--you're 25--a mere bambino! If it makes you feel better, at 25, I was fresh-out of a 4 year relationship, and feeling like I'd never get married. I was going out with the girls every weekend, and just liking the real me that slowly, but surely came back after being in an uber-possessive relationship that long. Low and behold, hubby came along--again. We had been friends since I was 22. I didn't get married until I was 28---2 months shy of 29, and I have to tell you, I wouldn't have had it any other way. We're in a mature, trusting relationship, and neither of us yank the other around. I don't want you to settle for someone you can trust because you're worried about being alone. You have FAR too much going for you, and with the prospect of more deployments, you need to be sure that you can trust Sweets. My mom jokes that I kissed EVERY frog until I found my prince, and I promise-your prince is out there! Maybe it's sweets, but maybe it's not. Be careful with the rumors though--they run RAMPANT, especially around homecoming time. Hugs!
