This is just random writing at 4 am at work during some down time. I was on Facebook( yes, we can still get on here) and saw photos of two of my friends at the club. Both new moms. Babies 2 and 6 months old. And I was jealous.
A friend of mine just had a baby about 2 months ago. In these last two months, she has done more traveling than I’ve done in the last almost two years of my child’s life. She went to Miami when the baby was less than a month old( didn’t someone tell her you don’t take a newborn anywhere until it’s had its shots?). Then she flew to Cananda when the baby was barely a month old. Then she went to Ohio when the child was about a month and a half. She’s got one month left for maternity leave, who knows where she will go next. And the whole time, she’s loosing weight, she’s going to the club, she’s having fun. Wow. Im jealous. Kinda. I mean, I don’t get to do any of those things anymore. And her man(not her husband) doesn’t work. So it’s all HER money they are spending. Her limited funds. I’m not jealous of that situation, but I’m wondering how is she doing all of this? Is this just her way to show her man that she is still fun despite the fact that she had his baby? Or is she trying to prove something to herself? And the rapid weight loss? What is she taking? is she eating? Everytime I see her on Facebook, there is a drink in her hand. She really isn’t still breastfeeding. But the weight loss is astounding. Ok, this is getting really random. 5 minutes isn’t up yet? But anyway. I’m still kinda jealous that she has a life and I don’t. Where did I go wrong? Is it a matter of priorities or what? Just saying. I mean, I want to go out without Pookah every once and a while. Not every weekend like her, but every once and a while would be nice. I want to travel. I want to do things. I’m jealous, even though I know I shouldn’t be.
