Step seven_Moving On

Two months after the wedding, my friends, curious to find out what I was up to lately, scheduled another pot luck dinner and as I watched with amusement, even the dogs hovered and sniffed, tongues salivating from aromas in the air. “Yes,” I said, “I still check off the days, months, now two years ABD and no, I’m not pining away.”

“So what have you been doing, Carly? still dating the same nice man we met at the wedding, ” Myrna said. I almost choked on an olive, chewed and swallowed, drank water and said, “Oh, you mean Sean, the nice unfaithful man who dated other women while seeing me? Uh NO more Sean and dear pals, I’ve decided not to run around anymore; to find something better to do with my time. Jana said, “And what are you going to do with your precious time?” I reached under the table for a bulging notebook, opened it, “I’m writing about my odd, sad adventures in widowhood.” Cindy said,”and what about the children’s book you wrote when your kids were growing up, “Baby Has Ears,” I learned more about raising kids from those books than any of the scientific books women read now.” “Hmm, my mindset is what I’m experiencing now.”
