All good things must come to an end?? I hate that saying.....

Well, I had a fabulous weekend. I drove to Florence to see W. We didn't do anything great but we just spent the time together and that made it a fabulous weekend. I think I could do absolutely nothing with him and have a good time. I love that about W. He is just so easy to be with and we could talk all day and night or not say a word and it would be just as good. I was finally introduced to his parents on Saturday and I loved them! I also got to meet his son for a few minutes. What a cutie!

He was called to work on Friday night at midnight. He works for CSX and some super smart person had run through a crossing guard and broken it. W had to replace the guard and rewire the signals to flash when the arm goes down. He had to do all of this in the POURING rain and thunder and lightning. I actually went with him and sat in the truck while he worked....well....I should confess that I SLEPT in the truck while he worked. I was impressed with what I saw though! That's something else that I like about W....he is a HARD worker and he can fix ANYTHING. After being married to a man who couldn't change a light bulb without calling for my help, that's a very important quality to me. I exaggerate a little but the ex was quite helpless.

As usual, the weekend had to come to an end and I had to drive 4 hours home. I hate the long distance thing BUT, given the fact that we were both divorced in the last year, I believe that our relationship can and will be stronger when we are actually able to be together.....and I hope that isn't too far off.

I hope everyone else had a fabulous Easter weekend. I'm really not looking forward to tomorrow morning at all.....

1 Year Anniversary today.....

......since I've been divorced! What a roller coaster ride it's been too! APRIL 8, 2008 was the day. I didn't realize that it was my 1 year anniversary until this afternoon when I finally had to write today's date on a check. It kind of made me feel like I had reached a milestone. No one really WANTS to be divorced, I assuming, but the fact that I've made it a full year and I'm still in tact is an accomplishment.

The last year of my life has been up and down. I spent the first 6 months in the bed...literally. I couldn't get up. I later found out that I had a bad case of mono and that was contributing to my lazy, tired body but I was also in some serious depression. I finally got a prescription for Zoloft and Wellbutrin and I was able to life myself out of that hole. By the time November rolled around, I was ready to go on a date.

Since then, I've found a great man. We'll call him W. More on him later.....
