can’t really tell you about it, tho. However, in an attempt to escape drama for a day or two, and perhaps even recover sensibilities and cease with the constant anxiety, Terry and I are going to Atlanta tomorrow, will stay in a fancy hotel for one night,eat at a couple of tasty places (one is a sure thing, the other is a recommendation) and buy some foodstuffs.
Suffice it to say that the drama has been coming from all directions, Terry’s work, our marriage, trying to get the house ready to sell (and failing), pretty much everywhere except (for once!) the kids. It’s been so tense that my hands are breaking out in blisters and have consumed a shameful amount of alcohol in a very short time.
There’s been panic attacks, frustrations, miscommunications and hurt feelings. We have settled what we could here at home. So that’s a BIG relief. Work is still…really, really tense. Yes, he is employed, but there’s other stuff I can’t talk about. If you are a praying sort, pray for wisdom and courage for Terry and his employer.
So in the interest of reminding each other exactly *why* we are married, we’re taking a short road trip to one of our favorite places.
