Um, duh you’re wonderful. And I cannot wait to see your beautiful face and hear your charming New England accent in just a few short weeks!! Let’s get dolled up and drink cocktails with umbrellas in them, please?
Forgive my blogging hiatus. It’s been an eventful couple of months. The Jake visit came and went and was only marginally successful. There’s no romantic reconciliation in our future. There’s not even a good story from the trip. But I must admit that I do feel better about the whole situation and I think we understand one another more than we ever have – which really isn’t saying much, I suppose. The man is an impossible puzzle to me but I guess now I’ll stop trying. Oh, and BTW, he failed to recognize Valentine’s Day at all. Or to comment on my amazing post-breakup body that I’ve been working my A$$ off on for the last year. And I’m sorry, but I look fabulous. The whole thing had such potential but was an enormous letdown.
Not long after that trip my grandmother passed away. My mom’s mom who was, up until quite recently, a spritely little 90 pound 90-year-old who made getting old look pretty awesome. She went downhill quickly which was a mixed blessing. I wrote a long piece about her that I never posted but still read while both laughing and crying. When my cousins and I were looking through her cedar chest we found a beautiful hand-crocheted baby blanket (for which she’s famous) with a card that said “For Ginger’s Baby” in her delicate cursive handwriting.
My grandmother must’ve immediately ascended into heaven where she was seated at the right hand of the Father, becoming my guardian angel because just a few shorts weeks after her death my arch nemesis CCW resigned! She’s GONE! It was the most bizarre situation and to be quite honest I’m a bit worried about her mental health, but she was such a drain on my company and my morale that I will simply pray for her health and safety while thanking the good Lord (and sweet Granny!) for removing her from my life.
Reading back through this it seems a Debbie Downer post and it kind of is, but spring is around the corner and good things are in store. The weather is warming up, work is slowing down, and a fourth season of Arrested Development is forthcoming. Something wonderful is going to happen, I can feel it! Until then, tell me some tales of your glamorous West Coast escapades or at least some online dating deets?
