And apologies for the long hiatus. Thank you specially to Elmarie, Jennifer and Jessica who left such lovely comments via the contact form.
Viva the single life! I have friends, but I no longer seem to have a best friend. She never calls me "The single woman blog" suggest a get-together. I miss her so much. She could always make me laugh until I wheezed.
And she was always the person I could tell anything to. How I wish that when I wake up in the middle of the night, and scary out-of-proportion thoughts flood my head, and my breath The single woman blog shallow and fast, and my heart thuds in my chest, that I had someone I could snuggle up to.
And tell me to go back to sleep and it will all seem less awful in the morning. Is it how I look? Should I lose weight? Do I walk funny?
Do I smell bad?!! How is it that everyone else knows what to do to find The One?
Having to cope with the ageing and eventual loss of my wonderful parents without support. My Big Birthday is looming. And let me tell you, I am not thrilled about it. How did I get so OLD? How did that happen? Where did they go? I confess, I have been: Would I be feeling happier about turning 40 if I was married with kids?
Yes… that gives me a lot of peace and acceptance about my life so far.
The single woman blog see this all. The funny thing is that other than my very charismastic Christian contacts, most people counting their blessings are not religious at all — some even verging on atheism. So I wonder, who exactly do they think is blessing them? I am genuinely curious about this… would love to hear from anyone who this applies to. Probably next year, maybe on the last Saturday in April, if my crystal ball is accurate.
Jeeeeeeepers… this one drives me crazy. And asking this of a single person is even worse… I mean, are we just supposed to go out and get ourselves knocked up, to become single mothers? This kind of question is like a knife through their hearts. How could you not want little snot-nosed, screaming darlings?
If you have any snappy answers for these questions, please share them in the comments. I could do with some good comebacks. What was most interesting to me was how different out work lives look now from when we first met. All of us — every one — have evolved what we do, and three out of the four are now moving into almost entirely different spaces.
