God, it's been forever since I've been on the ol' LJ. I come on every once in awhile to keep myself in the loop a bit, but haven't felt like writing in a long time.
I'm not sure if everyone has heard, but Joe and I broke up. We broke up the night before our four year wedding anniversary, but we'd been together 13 whole years. LONG damn time. It was totally mutual and a long time coming, but still heart breaking and the most difficult decision of my life. The weirdest thing about the situation right now is that we are still living together, but just as roommates. In fact, we decided to get another roommate to make things less awkward. Kind of a buffer of sorts. It's working out so far, but then again neither of us has started any sort of serious dating...that will be weird. We'll go our separate ways probably end of Spring, we just need to get all the crap taken care of. Car, house, cats, etc.
We both agreed the most important thing during this whole time is that we remain friends and make it as "easy" as possible. We care about each other too much to make it ugly and it's just not worth it. We joke about how someday we'll both be old farts and still really great friends.
We just ask that our friends support our decision and love us no matter what. Everyone has been great so far except Joe's sister. She is the only one that has been giving us shit and being extremely judgmental; it's pretty sad. I miss my nieces so much, but I really don't want to go through a firing squad every time I want to visit them. It makes me very sad.
Well, now I'm off to buy White Trash groceries at the outlet store. Welcome to being single!!
And then I'm going to see Cloverfield with Joe and our roommate. I've heard awesome things.
I'll be back later with a list of my WT groceries to share with everyone. Let's see how creative I can get with my purchases.
Jeez, I just realized I look naked in my new picture. I'm not...I swear.
Or am I?
