Well, he was here last weekend. I haven't seen him in a year. He looked wonderful. He was still as sweet as ever. He took me out, spoiled the girls and I. Bought me flowers, and well, you know, the whole romance for a day thing. I felt like Cinderella for a day, and it felt like old times, again.

Now it's over. He's gone again. My carriage turned back into the pumpkin. And things need to go back to normal. So I've been spending the week trying to re-adjust to my normal routine.

We're still friends, and always will be. He wants to return for my youngest's graduation. It depends on his job, and his children's school. I'm going try to prepare myself more this time. I didn't realize how emotionally attached I still was (am), but...I am.

I don't know how good I am at this "casual" thing, but I guess I better get use to it. He can't move back here, because he makes a better living where he went, and he's a single full time father of two. And I can't move there, because that would mean leaving my family here, which I have problems with taking such a huge step as that. I'd be far away, and not sure of the situation being stable enough to take the risk. There are other factors that play into it, as well. Some things that will never change. Things that I'm not willing to rearrange my whole life around.

Anyway, I just thought I'd update. I'm fine, and I'll be even better with each day that comes. I'm a survivor, and I've been thru this before. Yes, he's my friend, and I'll love him forever, but.... I love ME too, and there are just some things about myself that I can't give up. (Logic being one of them.)

Anyway, thanks for listening. I thank God I have a place to come to share this stuff with!

Jen

Hey Jenni,
Your carriage might have turned back into a pumpkin, but your still Cinderella in my book. Keep your chin up and you know we'll be here for you.

Jenni, your story reminds me of the movie "My Best Friends Wedding" It sounds so romantic to me. Remember in Cinderella she had the one magical night? Then when the time was right they were together...if this is something true and worth having, it may take time but you will have your "Happily Ever After"

Thank you, Student1! I guess we never know what can happen in life. I look at it as one big adventure. So I guess it's just best to roll with the flow and see what happens next.

Thank you for replying! 🙂

hang in there jenni
sometimes we just have to be glad for what we have, even when we want it to be more. i find it difficult myself. I'm so glad you had a nice time with your friend. these memories are like treasures. you deserve to spend time with those who value their time with you and you.

who knows, maybe in a year or so, things will work out better than you could imagine today.

Thank you, Bonni and Horsefly. I'm doing better now, and back into my usual routine. I can now view it as a memory of a nice time with my friend.

It's probably better that he lives away, so I don't have to see him and yearn for what I "wished" it would have been. I'm ok.

Oh and HF, Buck is my horse's name. LOL!
