Haiku – He’s getting engaged

It came as a shock

But it really shouldn’t have

A new tale begins

My ex husband of 16 years called to tell me that he’s getting engaged this week to his girlfriend of the past 3 years. Although, I think it was very thoughtful of him to let me know as we still have many mutual friends and our family members still talk, I’m still processing this news.

I wish him happiness, but I want that kind of happiness for me too. It’s time to reassess where I’m at and where I want to be.

Happy Birthday to Me

When your boyfriend lives 3 hours away you get flowers delivered to work on your birthday in your favorite color. We won’t celebrate until this weekend, but I love this surprise until we celebrate in person.

Just a side note on getting flowers at work. Every woman loves this no matter what they tell you. It’s always fun to make the girls at the office a bit jealous. Plus they smell sooooo good. A little dose of nature in the cubicle farm perks everyone up.
