In the News

13 Apr

Scene- DIY project Sunday. This weekend its replacing ugly mirrored closet doors in our bedrooms. Pushing them out of the house – it takes us both to move them. They are massively tall and weigh about 200 lbs each.  Kiddos- Ditto and Dot are playing ‘house’ in sunroom.  Huey Lewis & the News’ ‘If this is it’ is on the radio.

Flaca-  Sometimes I think we should give in and get divorced and end it all like Huey Lewis says. Are we happy or just avoiding fights?

Green-  No. Come on.. What does he say?

Flaca- singing, badly, ” If this is it, I want to know…. If this ain’t love, baby, Just say so… You’ve been thinking,  And I’ve been drinking, We both know that it’s, Just not right….”

Green, interrupts, –  Oh hell no, come on. No. No one listens to Huey. What does he know? Everyone knows that you listen to the News. You never listen to Huey.

And so we exist.  Moving on or moving past? Or just moving so we don’t have to stop and suffer the silence?

      It’s funny, right? The conversations we have now? At least I thought it was funny and for now we use sarcasm to bridge the gap in communication. It seems that now all that’s left is the humor in the whole ridiculous shit show this has been!

      So good to hear from you! Hope all is well!

        thanks. sometimes it seems like there is just too much pain and resentment to keep going. and then the dumb jerk makes me laugh.

        good call, “Happy to be stuck with you” is a better song. LOL.

    What bamboozled1 said! Green is hilarious, like yourself. However, we had that conversation this morning. We are done. Selling up. Youngest will be last one at home at the end of this year, I can do one by myself. Don’t know where, but that will be sorted in the fullness of time, I guess.

    We worked, too, bloody brilliantly, and sometimes we still work, he begs me to remember that, that we are the only ones who get each other, we read each others’ minds, laugh at the same dumb shit. But I can’t seem to shrug off the pain. And I don’t want to do this anymore. Fuck.

      I am so sorry to hear that. It’s hard and its exhausting.

      You know I feel so tired of it too. I feel like at 2.5 years that its come to that point for us too. I remember reading that at 2 years I would feel better. I do feel better but I’m definitely not happy. Lots of reminders and triggers still remain. But you’re right… when it all seemed to be so easy – the jokes, the mind reading, the connection – and then have it thrown away so easily… how can they expect us to to just ‘go back’ to how we were. My Green tells me that all the time, “I wish we were like we used to be….” How could he be so blind? Fuck indeed.

      Best wishes to you in whatever path you take. I send you wishes for strength.
