Romantic Rollercoaster

OK, now that I took care of the more mundane blogging that I needed to do, here's what's been going on of a little heavier nature ("really heavy, man").

Rick and I just went through a very slippery portion of our relationship. But it looks like it we managed to stop our downward fall and started climbing back up.

December 30 we were having a nice time together when things started getting weird and feelings started getting hurt. You all know how those things can quickly snowball. We parted for the evening and the next day while Rick was at work we texted back and forth a few times and decided to break up. We decided we wanted it to be amicable because we're so crazy about each other and don't want to be mad at each other.

Boy - was that a huge mistake! The next day we were both zombies. Rick stayed upstairs in his room all day and I sat in the corner of Denny's couch watching the DIY Network marathons all day with Rach. But since Denny and Rach both had to work the next day I went home about 9. Not long after I got home I found that Rick was online and started chatting with him.

We chatted for over an hour about what happened, how we felt, what went wrong and changes that maybe we could try to make things work. It's odd but it seems like online chatting is our best means of communication. I can only imagine what things will be like if we ever do end up living under the same roof and see an argument beginning - we'll have to each go to our own separate places and start a chat! I think it works because body language, facial expressions and voice inflections aren't there to get misunderstood. We can stay on an even keel. We can CAPITALIZE, bold or italicize the words we want to stand out.

So for now we're back together and enjoying ourselves again. We're gonna focus on things that we could see getting in the way of melding our households and things we both see in our personalities that should be corrected.

Maybe we're just acting more adult - how boring!

Well put my dear... Online chat: Communication of the 21st century...

Whatever works, right?

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
