The HAVE’s and Have NOT’s…

Ok, let me first start by saying I am blessed. I have a wonderful husband who provides for his family and a beautiful baby; her smile so adorable that it could make anyone consider having a child! But I suffer from serious jealousy! The green- eyed monster overcomes me when I see others getting things that I cant have. (Only child syndrome, my husband so lovingly calls it; however I know id be like this ten siblings or not, unfortunately.) This week it is honeymoons! Oh that vicious, vicious, Godzilla large monster. This past weekend we attended a wedding for two of our good friends and they are headed to Greece! Yay them! I am trying not to think mean thoughts but I can’t seem to tame this beast. To add to it, my sister-in-law announced this past Sunday that she and her fiancé would be honeymooning in Austria (and one other country which I cant think of because I went deaf with annoyance for the end of her gleeful announcement.) I did make out that she couldn’t wait to hike the trails of something or other and see all the other beautiful sites. Now don’t get me wrong…if my husband took me hiking on our honeymoon I would be pissed! That is just not my cup of tea or glass of wine in my case (White, please.) But the mere fact that they are going to be going makes me green! And not like a mint, or even a teal, but like a strong forest green, green! I see all my newly married friends jet setting to Belgium and or Paris (oh Paris! One day.) I know, a baby makes traveling more difficult and we didn’t exactly have the funds when we first got hitched. And I am blessed that my parents took the gigantic burden paying for our grand wedding. And now that we are in a better financial situation… us jetting off to Ireland with a baby on board (a plane) sign just doesn’t seem as romantic.

I am really confused as to why I care so much really, after all, I am incredibly hard to impress! I’ve always thought so. When people would be in deep conversation about countries they’d like to visit or other cultures food I would sit there and think…really? Old buildings? That’s interesting to people? (Minus Paris, that has always been my life dream) But I suppose as I aged (like a fine wine. Wine is on my mind a lot today…mmm…yes it’s been that week!) And became more “cultured” as they say, I have thought about “oh the places I shall go.” I put these thoughts aside when we decided to have a family, or so I thought, can’t we have both? Stupid green eyed Godzilla! This mommy doesn’t have time for you! I feel like I should have a giant sign on me that says, ‘Beware of wild animal’ or ‘Don’t poke the bear’ (at least not with information about your oh so fabulous honeymoon details!) Perhaps I’ll donate myself to the zoo! “Exotic wild green monster, to be housed alone!” But then I’d probably just get jealous of the other animals living quarters…

Someone just tell me honeymoons are overrated…
