I have a lot to bitch about lately, and I am pretty sure I will take the time to do so later, but not today.
Today I am going to stop and smell the roses, or look at what I have found fun about being single.
I have time to play with my pets. My dog and rat have been looking at me with "my mom doesn't feed me" eyes for a long time now.
I can take long showers. I found myself falling into his showering schedule and well, he was a man, showers were... well how do they live? Anyway, things get shaved and lotioned and primped now.
My sleep schedule is back on track. No more waiting up for a man who works night shifts. I sleep when I am tired.
The weekly fights are gone, which means I spend more time enjoying the world and less time coming up with the perfect comeback to whatever stupid thing we were arguing about. For instance, apparently rain smells good, the sun is nice, and there are funny people who shop at my store.
But best of all: my friends. I never had time with them before. Now I do and I love them. In particular I missed my best friend. You see, he is a boy. I used to have feelings for him. And Asshat is a jealous man. Who doesn't understand the past tense. Sigh. Hanging out with best friend usually meant a fight. I was very tired of fighting. You do the math.
Anyway, tonight my best friend and I watched a bunch of movies together. Ate pizza rolls. It was a very simple evening of hanging out. And it was wonderful. I didn't have to worry about getting an angry text during Sholin Soccer. There wasn't that awkward feeling like I was doing something wrong. I just spent time with a guy I've been friends with forever.
A simple joy. That's the kind that lasts.
PS no, I don't know when LadyLock will get on this thing. I'll poke her.
