Love and Marriage

Life is good.  Very good.  I’ve got someone special in my life and it’s gotten quite serious.  It just feels very right.  We’re pretty much polar opposites (although both we are both Virgos) she doesn’t drink much and she’s very religious.  Myself I still believe there’s a good chance I’m the spawn of Satan.

I don’t want to say too much,except that I’m happy.  Funny that.


So true . . .

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

A Rolling Stone Sunday

Went out to see Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas last night. A fun film save the next to last scene with the poor waitress that turns the film into a downer. 

The drive home I put on some Rolling Stones. Nice mellow music but still rock n roll.

Sunday was nice. I cleaned while listening to the Stones,cleaning has become my habit as cleaning keeps me from spending money on silly things.

Cleaning I realize how often my ex must have battled dust in our home. Seems like just last week I swept up the house and here I am sweeping enough dog hair to make a new dog. The odd thing,I think a lot of that hair still belongs to Nick and Nora who I haven’t seen since last April.

I miss Nick and Nora but I’m glad they’re with their mother.  Nick was an especially fine dog and Nora was a lovable grump.  My very own Gus is a lovable lout who likes to lay on the sofa with me and watch hockey. Despite his short fur he still manages to drag a lot of dirt into the house.

Sunday has become shopping day.  I go to Sam’s Club and buy my food for the week. This week I again BBQ’d four chicken breasts and some beef for meals.  I’ve been enjoying taking my own meals and besides saving money I seem to be losing weight. It doesn’t hurt that I’m cutting out the sodas at lunch.

All and all it has been a good day. I got some things done,played some xbox and talked with some friends. All and all I’m pretty lucky.

I wish I had something more profound to say here. I’m just rambling. I’m getting used to the empty house. I guess its the emptiness in my heart that’s going to take longer to get used to.

Good night my loved ones.


The good life


The week started a little blue. But life has a way of working its way out. 

Work has been crazy hectic. But the week is passing quickly.  These past few weeks we’ve done a third more work than normal.

I saw some friends this week went to dinner and Tiki Tuesday. Then Indian food last night with a dear enemy.  I even managed to wash Gus.

The Sharks vs Red Wings game is on. So far its been a pretty good battle. Gus don’t care provided he gets petted.

Show this weekend. I am looking forward to it.


Mother Told Me There’d Be Days Like These.

Blue today.

I guess the one aspect of divorce and being single I was really not prepared for was the loneliness.  There are days where I haven’t spoken a word aloud unless I was talking to Gus.

Being single in Houston is tough. Not a lot of places to go hang out and meet single women. But more over,I’m not just looking for Miss Right Now,I’m looking for something more.

I miss the companionship,the laughter and the conversations that having a long time partner means.

But today,I was a little extra blue. Especially around meal time. I really do miss the nice,home cooked meals. The smell of bread in the house. Good memories all,but also a reminder of things we both lost.

So that’s it. It is what it is. But everything will fall effortlessly into place.
