When he returned from supporting Explorer Guy on his solo attempt of ascending Denali in January and our relationship was still ignorantly good (i.e., I didn't know about the affair and had yet to process the fact that he and my ex-dear friend had decided to see each other), he said that he was thinking of going back to Talkeetna, Alaska . . . to live. And now, perhaps precipitated by the ugliness of the past few weeks (?), he's made the move. Supposedly. I think. (He was to have left last Monday - driving - but, since I'm no longer in contact with him, I have no idea if he did or not . . . although there's no evidence to the contrary.)
ANYWAY, one of my dear friends dubbed last Sunday (the ex's original departure date) as Sayonara Sunday. ;) And, I received two WONDERFUL packages of support for the auspicious occasion. The first came in the form of this lovely bouquet of flowers hand-delivered to me in my office by the owner of the local flower shop.
|THANK YOU, sweet Jean! xo|
The second unexpected pick-me-up arrived a week ago yesterday. I'd been told to look for a package arriving in my business mail box. What I DIDN'T expect was such a BIG package with FRAGILE labels all over it! As far as I can tell (more on that later), the box contained three separate goodies (yes, I ripped into it at the post office!). Here's the one I've unpacked and been using all week:
|"I'm not saying she's a slut. Well, okay, yes, I am."|
Now, regarding the remainder of this large package . . . I am reserving unpacking the rest of it for Down Days. Difficult Days. Days that I need a pick-me-up. Does that make sense? Erin, I *hope* you don't mind that I'm stretching it out! For those of you on the edges of your seats, though, I will reveal what sneak peeks have shown: a voodoo doll, complete with pins (ha!), and . . . this is hysterical! . . . a wedding ring COFFIN!!!! So, stayed tuned for upcoming pictures of those . . . as soon as I take them out to "play with" 'em . . . just like a kid at Christmas! :)
I have received SO many comments and e-mails and wonderful, supportive cards (thank you, my "personal doctor", you know I lurv you!) in these past couple of weeks. I haven't responded to any of them yet, though, because, in order to do so, I have to go "back there", mentally, to "that place". And, when I'm having good days, I just DON'T WANT TO relive these past weeks! I know you understand that. But, PLEASE, know how APPRECIATIVE and GRATEFUL and THANKFUL I am for EACH and EVERY ONE OF YOU! Yes, I mean YOU, sitting there in front of your computer or reading this on your iPhone. YOU. Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I don't know WHAT I'd do without such overwhelming support. xoxoxo
Peace out. :)
