Longest. Day. Ever.

I swear, it's felt like this day will never end. It's felt like this WEEK will never end. My focus at work is nonexistent. I don't know if it's because I'm excited about the interview next week, if it's because I'm finding it very hard to care about my job, all of the above, or something completely different.

Wow. I just got an e-mail from someone I hadn't heard from in a while - I believe I may have previously referred to her in my blog as JG. She was sort of the catalyst for my divorce, she's who K fell in love with, and that's when everything kind of went to pot. K asked me last night if I'd mind if she got in touch with me. We were good friends before all that falling in love business happened, and so I said sure. I really never have had strongly-held hard feelings toward her - I think on some level I knew things weren't right in my marriage, and she's just the one who happened to be caught in the middle of the whole mess. I also know she's going through a divorce right now, and I figure life is short, we girlfriends have to stick together. So I wrote her back real quick and told her I was just fixing to leave, but I'd write more later.

I'm glad she wrote.

And I'm also glad it's time for me to GO HOME.

More later!

Isn't if funny when the "other woman" wants to talk. I have one of those too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dixie, I can't even really think of her as the "other woman" - K fell in love with her, but she always said she never viewed him as anything more than a friend. I think she acted in ways that would indicate otherwise, but K says nothing physical happened, and I have no reason to disbelieve him. (Believe me, after the things we have talked about, there is ZERO reason for him to lie to me on this subject.)

And I'm glad that she wrote. We were friends, and good girlfriends don't just grow on trees. If she and K had ended up together, that would have been an entirely different situation. But she's in the same boat I am - single mom (soon to be single, anyway), woefully underemployed, financially stressed - and I figure we all need friends who understand where we're coming from.
