the ups and downs of life

Change

Last night and today have surprised me. I have been without caffeine for 10 hours now and I was surprised to  have actually lasted that long without it. I’m craving like you wouldn’t believe and cannot wait to get some soda! But I have to do blood work at 9:30. So I am waiting. And I work 3rd shift so somehow I survived. Throughout the night I was busy. At around 5 am I realized something. Things have changed. I realized that today would have been my 16th wedding anniversary and I almost forgot it! I was happy about that since the divorce was a long time ago. But usually dates stick with me. And I just kind of forgot. My ex-husband‘s birthday was a few weeks back and I forgot it, too. As I sat and pondered that this morning, I realized I also don’t miss my recent ex. I miss having someone in the house, but him? No, not really. I am so grateful for that! I’m glad that I don’t miss the drama or chaos. I slipped into some sort of peace of mind without losing too big of a piece of my mind. (Good thing, too! There’s not many pieces left!)

I like these changes. I feel good about them. Finally something positive! Halle-freaking-lujah!
