Weekends with my single friends vs. weekends with the 'marrieds with kids'. This is my life.
Oh, the Spinsterlicious Life. It's a mixture of all things good and interesting in life...and delightful juxtapositions.
Last weekend, I spent some time with three fab single ladies and it was just refreshing to see each of them doing their own thing, having crafted pretty nice lives for themselves. I see this all the time so it still befuddles me when I hear people question how a single woman could be happy and pretty satisfied with her life, as is. These girls have it going on!
Spinster # 1 is actually not a spinster because she's divorced…so I've made her an honorary spinster. She had us all laughing as she talked about how much fun she's having renovating her new place, post-divorce. Her last renovation --during the marriage-- was fraught with tension and stress as she and the then-hubby struggled over every last detail, trying to find a solution that satisfied them both. Sometimes they ended up with a compromise that only half-satisfied either one of them. This time, she's doing her place exactly the way she wants it and she loves it.
Spinster #2 has a pretty cool job in the entertainment field and regaled us with stories about her travels and the behaviors of nutty, demanding celebrities. She also told us about being invited, recently, to a friend's dinner party with four other couples. She was the only single-ista. They decided to play a game that only couples could play. It didn't occur to anyone that maybe this wasn't so nice. Don't they know any other games?
