I have been gone so long, I might be writing to thin air, and I wouldn't blame my few readers for abandoning ship. The reason for my absence feels like a foray into hell. I know it could be worse, but my life was literally turned up-side-down! I've tried to be very private about this, but I think it would be therapeutic to write about it.
I have been happily married for 36 years, and one of my favorite movie songs and scenes was from The Wedding Singer's "I Wanna Grow Old With You!" Just before summer began, my husband asked me to look him in the eye and tell him if I was cheating on him. If you know me, you know that's laughable. I was puzzled and thought, "How cute! He still thinks I'm hot!" But the amusement ended quickly as he began to claim to see me "about town," heard neighbors "talking" about my exploits, and began to spy on me (he even secretly placed an audio recorder in the house).
