During my 3-week stint as a single woman I figured something else about myself. I was bored out of my mind. I remember someone once saying that if you're bored it's because you're boring.
Am I boring?
Anyway, I had to figure out a way to fill the hours. I was so absorbed in my man's life that when I decided to extricate myself from it I was left with my couch and the remote control. And I don't even like television. I stopped reading, I stopped writing. I starting shopping too much and drinking heavily. Not out-in-the-street-falling-down-drinking, but stay-in-the-house-sipping-wine-drinking. Yeah, like one is better than the other.
I began to force myself to leave the house ... and not spend any money. Not an easy feat. I put a few things on my calendar: Jill Scott at the end of Feb, and there's an MLK, Jr. event on Monday. So I've made a start.
The discovery is that when you're a couple it's okay to have different interests, in fact it's preferable. Just as long as you come together when it counts (no pun intended).
Have a great day!
