As I was saying, the weather and mooning over my new cat Elvis has kept me from experiencing anything interesting enough to write about. You can imagine how happy I was this morning when I realized that today would have been my thirty ninth wedding anniversary.
I sat down at the computer thinking of putting down heartfelt phrases like “How long after divorce before the date of your wedding passes by unnoticed?”.
I love writing and believe me I could have really poured it on. There wouldn’t have been a dry eye in the house.
The response would have been predictable. Stephanie and Susan would be angry. Liz would be consoling, Marcia and Julie would feel terrible, David would call me a fucking idiot and for the most part the people who read my blog would be proud of me for enduring and tell me to keep my chin up.
I’m sitting here trying to put it together.
In 2011 dave told me he was in love with a Japanese woman.
He hung around drinking, mooning around the house feeling sorry for himself, I guess for being such a prick, Skyping his girlfriend from my den ( I could hear them talking to each other through the night. I assume mostly to say “Huh?” to each other since she spoke little english and his Japanese wasn’t perfect), taking her away on our boat a few times through the rest of 2011 and into 2012 when he finally moved to Japan to find true happiness.
In 2013 our divorce became final.
So without realizing it the answer to the question “How long after divorce before the date of your wedding passes by unnoticed?” I have to say is “Beats me but it’s sooner than you think”
From now on February 16th will be the day I celebrate Elvis helping me type
