A brief but much needed vacation. I turn 49 on the 4th and celebrate 13 years of sobriety tomorrow. I take as much of this week as possible to do some puttering, some nesting, some reflection, and in the case of this past year and a half, perhaps the only vacation I’ve had that hasn’t had a crisis around it, knock on wood. Then back to work for only 14 working days before I’m on my own and hunting up fun work.
I’ve dealing with recidual breakup crap and really hope this is the last bit. This is the only relationship ending where I am not friends with the man besides my ex-husband in 1984. I’ve been friends with all the rest, very amiable. But none of them betrayed my like this either. And if they had they could have admitted it instead of trying to make their betrayal something they had to do because I’m me. So you can imagine when it cropped up again a few weeks ago, I still had some emotions tied up with that.
Combine that with the work drama and I’ve been a little sad that this crap has made it difficult for me to be fully present for this momentous new time in my life.
I hope to take these 5 days and re-group, cleanse, do some healing, some rejuvenation, and to get my focus back on track.
