I went to the gym today to try and work off all the yummy holidays foods I"ve been enjoying since I started Christmas baking 3 weeks ago...I was walking out of the one workout area when I saw an older women with a dark blue t-shirt on and it had in the corner pink baby footprints with team sophia. So naturally I assume that she is part of some sort of team raising money. I go up and ask her if she is walking for the March of Dimes. In which I get a blank stare so I tell her I saw her shirt. She says, " OH No, this is for my great granddaughter just born" Ummm okay, My bad...She then of course ask is the March of Dimes for babies I tell her yes that a people walk for babies who've been in the NICU. and just leave it at that and continue on with my day. I just felt it wasn't necessary to get into my situation with someone who is wearing a team shirt for a baby born perfectly fine....
But on another note although that was very awkward it was the FIRST time I have chosen not to talk about Scott and not feel bad about it. I just realized that in that moment it wasn't going to be excepted the way I would want it to be and I would probably have gotten a response that would have just made me angry or upset.
I will just have to wear my team popcorn shirts( once we get them) to the gym. ;p
I agree that that is a bit strange. Maybe of course the baby wasn't born perfectly fine and she has a "team" for something else. I don't know but I agree its weird if the baby was born perfectly fine. Hope you can burn some calories for me too. I have had a cold for almost a month and can't seem to get motivated to do anything. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Can't wait to hear about C's nutcracker!
Hmmm.....maybe there was a boy team and a girl team with fingers crossed for their pick????? Kind of odd, but I've seen weirder (is that a word??).
Go you for working out!!! I'm still on the couch and needing to get my butt in gear. Hopefully I'll get motivated really soon.
I'm glad that you found peace today in not sharing Scott's story today in order to protect his story from someone not getting it and saying something potentially hurtful. I started doing that when I realized that it was more painful to get a poor response than to keep Marco to myself.
