I got so much done on my house yesterday. I think one more weekend and it will at least be ready for these people who are interested to see it. My son promises to go at his space today, and it’s by far in the worst space in the house. I just have the bathrooms and the garage to do. Even if these people don’t end up buying the house, at least it will be ready to put on the market, pretty much, when I get back from Florida. I will need to paint the deck, but I don’t think I can do that until the days are longer and warmer. End of April maybe. I’m going to hire someone to come in and get the yard in good shape, cut back the shrubs, etc.
I had so much fun talking to my friend in Florida last night. Old friends are so wonderful to have. I haven’t talked to her, except FB messenger, for a long long time, but we know each other so well, we just pick up where we left off. I just love her to death. She’s just one of those people who never allows anything to take her joy of living from her. I can’t wait to see her. Having her there, where I want to live will be like instant immersion into that life.
Which will move me at light speed away from this one, lol. It’s time, really. Definitely time. It’s funny, I have had the plan to move to Florida since before I met S. The relationship with him did not deter it. It has always been there. It could have worked out in many different ways, either for us, or for me. If he had wanted a relationship, and to retire, we could have shared each other’s homes, had a place to go in the winter in Florida, a place here in New England in the summer. And kept our independence, both owning a home. We could have just visited each other. It turns out it became my escape route, from the devastation he wrought on my life for a time. I’m so glad it’s one dream I never gave up.
I think at times, well he wanted a relationship, just not with me. But then, did he want one with her, really? If he did, why did he do what he did, knowing it would kill it. And if it wasn’t dead, then spending January with me, certainly didn’t help breathe life back into it. It’s not my problem any longer though. I look so forward to loving a man who knows what he wants, and who doesn’t engage in self-destructive behaviors constantly. There is another side of life, and I intend to experience it fully. 🙂
Lovely to have slept a good night’s sleep last night. Today is supposed to be warm, at least warm enough to go to the cove for lunch. It’s been so long, I am looking forward to it.
Off for my 2nd cup of coffee…..Love and light, all.
