Coffee and Memories

This evening/night has really improved what was a horrible
day. I met up with Jennifer and we went out for coffee (at a little local
coffee shop I didn’t even know about) and a bite to eat. I had such a great
time. The coffee shop put me in mind of places I used to hang out at in
Louisville, tables were painted, haiku poetry on the walls. We talked about work,
life, and all that’s going on. It was really nice to get out and spend time
with a friend. It has been so long since I have hung out with someone other
than my soon to be ex-wife. I miss social interactions with people other than
my family. It was just a great evening. After grabbing a bite to eat at
Tollyho’s (by the way a superho with egg, bacon, and pepper jack rocks!) I left
and stopped at my once home. Most of the stuff was gone or placed where it
would be easy to grab it. It still hurts to be in the house. It is such a weird
feeling. We thought moving there was going to really change our lives for the
better. It changed our lives all right, though this divorce may be what we
really needed. My heart feels like it is for the better. I still care for my
soon to be ex but it just came to a point that it really would just be better
for us to be friends than husband and wife. I still want the best for her; she
was such a part of my life for seven years. Though it was a hard seven years we
still made some great memories that I shall hold onto forever.
