Second of all…a lot of this week has entailed long talks on the couch with Howard, me curled up with my head in his lap, him stroking my hair, sometimes me crying, sometimes the whole talking thing escalating into an argument, sometimes escalating into…well, I’m a lady (at least on this here blog). But…we have made some definite decisions about our future and you know what? So far, there has been a lot less crying, and I’m still getting my hair stroked! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I go to work with renewed motivation, I smile more, laugh much harder and take a lot less things to heart.
I’m absolutely giddy, ya’ll. You have no idea. Absolution is a beautiful thing.
