Yeah. It's been a while.
And some things have changed.
Most of you know that things with my marriage had been rocky for some time, and that Steve and I decided to take some time apart to try to work things out. I'm going to skip over everything in between and just go ahead and say that ... we didn't.
It's really that simple ... except, well ok, it's not simple at all. It's complicated in many ways, and quite frankly, it sucks big sweaty donkey balls.
That's really all I'm going to say about it. I am fine, Steve is fine, and we're navigating the to-do lists and proceedings and all that in a very friendly and amicable manner. You might say we're even being adults about it, or at least as adult as two heartbroken people can be in such a situation. I won't say that there aren't days when I feel like flinging myself to the floor and having a nice big tantrum, but thankfully those moments are rare these days.
But really, I'm doing ok. I have a wonderful support system in my family, friends, church and co-workers. I have a great job, a nice little apartment, and lots of things to keep me busy. I didn't think I'd ever be in this situation (really, who does?) but now that most of the really difficult things are behind me I can say that my life now is more joyful than sad. I'm really grateful for that.
I hope now that things have settled some that I'll be able to spend more time here. For some reason a lot of you seem to really like reading my blatherings and who am I to deny you such enjoyment? I've decided to keep the blog name the same (though I did briefly consider switching to Went Greene just for kicks), but I'll be changing the header. At some point. It took me for-freaking-ever to figure out how to make that first one so don't get too excited as it will probably take another eon to remember how I did it and make another.
So that's what's been happening in my life. How you doin'?
