Crossed Over

I think I have finally crossed over into a really nice category. It's called 'Letting it all go.'

A few interesting things happened this weekend and I am so glad it did. Well.. some things we could all do without, but then again.. for me... it taught me so much.

For one, something really quite inconvenient and terrible happened to a close friend. I needed help in order to help this person, and of all people, my ex came through for me. He got a call from me at 3am and helped me out - no questions asked. THAT is progress.

And I was able to go home and not think a thing about it or him.

Again - progress.

Then Sunday would have been our 6  year anniversary. I was dreading this impending date. I knew it would be difficult, and that I would probably sit around and ruminate over the past.

But surprisingly, I did not even remember it.

Until today.

Grilled chicken with sauteed spinach & feta, with ribs
Instead, I drove to Dublin to hang out with... I guess we can call him this now... my "boyfriend." He grilled and cooked an amazing dinner (apparently he is QUITE the cook,) and introduced me to his sister and nephew. He drove me around the property (which happens to have tons of acres) on a 4-wheeler, something I had never done in my life. We sat out by a campfire and just laughed and talked.

Then today, as I was preparing my coffee, I looked up at the calendar that had that date written in red, and it did not phase me one bit.

Wow.

It's over. That sadness. It's gone.

I am.. lord have mercy.. I can't believe I am saying this.. but I am happy.

And it's a good thing.
