Haha. Sorry, that put a little smile on my face.
I am a Key Caller for the FRG. I know, I know. FRG, ewwww. Whatever. I got involved with the FRG to stay in the loop, to make the hubs look good, and hopefully to meet people. I haven't met a lot of people, but it has kept me in the loop, and I hope it reflects well on the hubs.
Anyway, so I got involved a whiiiiiile ago, and now I'm kinda wishing I hadn't. Ok, that's not quite accurate. I have enjoyed it, for the most part. I am just feeling selfish. I was making my first redeployment phone calls...you know, the "hey, your hubs is coming home on this day at this time...". I got to be the bearer of good news, which should have been exciting and made me feel good. Instead, it kinda bummed me out. My hubs wasn't on that list.
It's not that I had expectations. I just didn't think it would be so hard to be unselfish. It flat-out sucks to be giving other people the good news they have been waiting for, while still waiting for my own. And, damn, you'd kinda think maybe people would be excited? Nope. It's been more of "oh, ok, yeah I guess I should grab a pen and write this down". WTF?!?! When I get my news, I'll probably cry tears of pure excitement. Until then, I'll just continue bringing the good news to people who don't seem to appreciate it.
