This weekend will be BLT and my second anniversary.
Wow - two years and he's still here? I jokingly asked him if he realized I had FOUR kids... that none of them really belonged to the neighbors even if they did spend half their time over there! He said he was aware... so what can I do? The damn fool, LOL!
I think my oldest, Chef, summed it up well. Chef and I went for a walk last week and during a semi serious conversation where Chef asked me why I had stayed married to the X for so many years when he wasn't nice to us (wow, was that a hard one to put into words... sometimes I don't know myself. That was a pretty deep, honest conversation to have with your teenager) Shortly after that conversation Chef said, "BLT must REALLY love you mom, cause uh.. well we're just a lot." lol... Chef didn't elaborate on what we (the four kids and I) were a lot of. I think it's just that we're a lot of everything in general! LOL... a lot of noise, expense, emotions and work. We're a lot of energy and on occasion having so many females in one house means we are a lot of drama. Yep we're "a lot" to be sure.
So here we are... two years after starting our relationship, over seven years as friends. I can't think of anywhere else I would want to be, or anyone else I would want to be with. I'm very lucky to have a second chance at happiness.
