Super exciting life of newly-divorced woman

January 8, 2007

I came home on Friday afternoon with the sole purpose of getting all of my laundry washed, folded, ironed and put away.

I ended up with a drop-dead-clean kitchen with reorganized cabinets and refrigerator. A win’s a win. But I’ll still have to iron this morning.

That’s about it for the weekend. Except that I almost lost my marbles yesterday in Wegman’s, when the mix of blooms in the floral department reminded me of Disney’s Polynesian. We spent many lovely days there. But I stopped it. It was like my soul said, “No. Not this time.” And I pulled it all back together before it fell apart.

And that, to me, is cooler than a neatly-folded pile of laundry any day.

Next heartwrencher? We’re putting the house up for sale. Stay tuned!

    Putting the house up for sale is a better thing than you’d think… What I mean to say is, once you eventually buy a new house (if you haven’t already done so) – it is the actual fresh start.

    I lived in an apartment with my daughter for three years and then finally – finally got a house. Once I did that then I felt like things were finally past me.

    Hope my imput (which was not exactly askd for) was not to far out of line.

    Happy New Year!

    Good for you, for throwing out that food last week and for not allowing depression to take hold of you. I’m won’t say I know what you’re going through, but I know it’s hard. Of course you’re going to get sad; that’s normal and natural. But not letting that sadness turn into something that takes over your life is so healthy and courageous. Good for you!

    You got more times like this ahead like the house. If I can ever help, even if you just need someone to listen or want to get out of the house, please know I’m here. So is John who has been through it and can lend a more understanding ear.

    We’re pulling for you! (And so jealous that you’re going to Disney in a month!)

    On the positive side….. Clean Kitchen, clean fridge, laundry, and ironing! Awesome! You should have plenty of people banging down on the door.

    P.S. I got some shirts that need attention (smile)
