I apologize for not letting anyone know I was taking an internet break. I didn't plan it. So this is what has been going on in my life these days:
1. I finally moved into my OWN apartment. No more room-mates/friends etc. I LOVE IT. This is huge for me. I realized that at the age of 46 I haven't lived alone for longer than 4 months between men since the age of 17. It is an amazing feeling to take the key and open the door to "my home". Now I am kicking my ass because I didn't do it years ago. Peace of mind and privacy are an amazing, wonderful thing. Plus I worked it out so my overhead is quite low. Only in PA can you find a nice apartment in a decent neighborhood at a VERY reasonable price.
2. I met a man!! A man in my age bracket ( a little younger, but mature) We have become great friend and the benefits part blows my mind. He literally came out of nowhere and he saw me. I mean he saw the inside and outside. I can't bullshit this man and I know instinctively that he has a line in the sand. Meaning he has boundaries, that once crossed, would mean losing a great person in my life. That is a good thing for me.
3. My car got totaled yesterday. I just spent over $1400 in upkeep and new parts and Bam!! I was on my way to Joe's yesterday and after I just sunk all that money into the car it is considered totaled. I was driven home by the police officer and came in my house and cried. I woke up feeling sore and bruised, I think more mentally than physically. Today however I have much better spirits and realize that my life is not over. I still have much to be thankful for. Usually I would get morbidly depressed. This time I decided that I am going to plow forward and take life one day at a time and things will get better
So that is a brief update as to what has been going on in my PA life. The car is no more, but I have a nice roof over my head and people that love and care for me. Life could be a lot worse. Now I am going to check everyone else's blogs and play catch up. Peace!!!!
