Nine Years Ago

Nine years ago this evening, I said "I do" with a man I thought I'd still be married to today. Before 10/13/01, we were together for five years. We've been separated for three years now. For no good reason, I haven't filed for divorce yet. I keep giving excuses. The most prevalent excuse is "I don't have the time to see my lawyer. I'll do it later." There's that word again. Later. I'm beginning to dislike that word very much.

I don't want to be tied to him any more. I don't love him any more. I don't talk to him any more. So why am I hesitating moving forward? I have no reason. All I know is that I need to give myself a good, swift kick in the rear and call my lawyer. I just need to take the first step. There's nothing to be scared of, right?


  1. Wow - how bizarre that I asked you about this on the anniversary?! Definitely a sign that it's time to write the final lines of that chapter.

  2. Freaky, huh? Yes, it's definitely time.
