Friends, will you allow me to simply say that things just didn't work out with us and that she is now...elsewhere? I'm sorry that I cannot be more specific than that, but I promised myself that I would just move on.
For now, know that my conscience is clear, my heart is broken (but will heal eventually), and my world is going to be a little different now without her. This is a very deliberate choice that I had to make, and I promise you that it did not arrive without a great deal of soul searching.
But! I am made of hearty peasant stock and, as my stitchy sister Miss Charlene reminded me today...this too shall pass.
So thank you, dear sweet peoples for your love and concern and advice and offers to come to Hoosierville to knock some sense into her. I might take you up on that offer...but as it relates to two very ornery little Jack Russell terrorists that simply refuse to behave themselves no matter how many cookies I send their way.
Onward...to the Happy Chair and beyond! There's stitching to do, shenanagins to be had, and dietCoke to be guzzled.
Oh, what fun we'll have! Stay tuned!
