  • YOUR pastor is cool. Priceless!

    Comment


    • Well, not sure if I should journal about this, but here goes. Last week I was talking to my ex-husband, who is a very good friend, and bemoaning my lack of special person. He knows about my recent disappointment. He offered to come up and be my special person for the weekend and attend my concert, take on go-fer duties, be my cheering squad, etc. And so he did. It was great having him around. He is not good husband material, but he has that thing going on where he can really come through in a clutch - when the chips are down and stuff isn't going right, he shows up like there is nothing in the world he would rather do than whatever I need doing. He is a musician himself and I knew he would be objective about the concert and I trust his judgment. He loved it and told me honestly that it was terrific, magical, professional. Coming from him that meant a great deal. And I discovered a 'cure' for my hot flashes. Sleeping with someone worked pretty well! One of the major problems is getting really cold AFTER the hot flash, and being awake shivering half the night...Ex is like a portable heater. I told him that I would push him away and really mean it if I was flashing, and he was down with that. Then I could spoon up and be warm. I only woke up twice and it wasn't bad at all, I went right back to sleep. I was never cold. Plus he is a totally safe partner and I was pleased to discover than my libido isn't quite dead yet. In fact it has a fair amount of life. I wouldn't have the courage to experiment this way with a stranger, but with him it is okay. I explained it to him and he totally understood how it would work. If I didn't feel like it, we would just stop, end of story. He's the only man on the planet I could talk to about this and put down weird ground rules and not feel awkward. He stayed two nights and it was fun. He is very happy about eating primal with me and is very interested in the whole ancestral health thing, so that is great for me. We stayed primal all weekend, even with the buffet at the concert. We ate carnitas and eggs and cauliflower and brazilian cheese bread, which he agreed is dangerously addictive. Had bananas sauteed in butter and honey as a treat. So it was all good and I feel good about myself, better than I have felt in a long time.

      • That is very cool, and UNHEARD of, LOL.

        • That is so awesome . What more can you ask for in a friend/ex/lover at the ready when it feels right? Fantastic!

          As for the priest? How very bizarre. Glad to hear your own pastor has a better sense of humour.

          • Tossed out of church, followed up by some friendly fornication! Siobhan, I salute you! Nobody does it better. That is great.

            • BTW, Ex is a lapsed Catholic with very hard feelings - he fought off a molestation attempt as an altar boy. When he told his mother, she slapped him across the face and washed his mouth out with soap. Anyway...he walked out of the church with me, took my arm, and said, "I love you madly!"

              • Great to be on such terms with your ex! So many people put others into 'boxes' and expect only certain behaviours because of it. I am so glad that you can transcend such pettiness and enjoy life 'in the moment' as we all aspire to do in our own spheres.

                Glad the concert was magnificent by all accounts ... you worked very hard to support the team effort. (Stuff the crabby cleric!)

                • When I think of all the work by so many people to create a couple of hours of ephemeral beauty, it is almost overwhelming. I had vowed not to do this again because it is so time consuming, but...maybe!

                  I have discovered liverwurst. How did I not know of this deliciousness? After all, I grew up eating it. The local grocery has a good all-natural brand.

                  For those of you who might be wondering, there is NO chance of reuniting with Ex. He will always be in my life in some capacity, but there are issues...baggage...problems with adult children...finances...too many things that will never be resolved. He has not the slightest desire to be a 'husband' and I have no desire to deal with the unfortunate BS that comes with the package. But we are very good friends and we have always got along very well.

                    • I think its wonderful that you have a good relationship with the ex. That is EXTREMELY rare!! Too bad the baggage gets in the way of it being more.
                      1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                      2. Eat to heal
                      3. Move to live
                      4. Embrace today
                      5. Live with intention
                      6. Respect my body
                      7. Cultivate joy
                      8. Find my passion
                      9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                      • Here I am at work. Didn't sleep much! Still having the day sleeping problems, although I don't have hot flashes. I just wake up after about 4 hours and can't go back to sleep. Am tired now, though!

                        Ate lots of meat today, mainly because it is pretty much all I have at home. Eggs and pork. I had a piece of cheescake. (Hanging head in shame) Grain free. (Lifting head slightly)

                        After the excitement of the weekend, I have nothing good to report. All is back to boring in the Land of Siobhan.

                        • You're never boring. Au contraire!

                          Cheese cake is pretty primal -- just cream cheese and sour cream and, oh -- uh oh!

                          I think it must be really hard to sleep at all with your schedule. It's amazing all that you do. You just need a few calm days and you'll be rarin' to go.

                          • Yeah, and I'm starting menopause which is making it hard to sleep. Mother Nature is not being kind to me, although it could be worse! I've just added Vitamin E to my supplements. I can only hope!
