And so we begin the next chapter of our life together, Darc and I. As WIGSF put it, we have made it through “another year of holding back the urge to smother someone in their sleep.” No idea what the future holds, but I do know that whatever it is, Darc and I will surely be able to face it together. We’ve gone through some things that probably should have destroyed our marriage, but we found those things seemed to refine us, reshape us, and unite us in ways we’d not thought possible before. Fire and pressure change the nature of things – like coal into diamonds or purifying gold and silver – not the least of which is our marriage and ourselves. So here’s to the next step of the journey.
Darc has been a busy bee, trying to finish up this latest “slurp,” as it has come to be called. Nothing like a deadline to motivate someone. I do what little I can to help, as a research assistant, but the work is all on his shoulders.
And this is our last week together all day every day. At least for awhile. The new job starts next week and while that’s a good thing, we are going to miss each other. You get kind of used to a person, hanging out 24/7.
So how was your weekend?
