Spank had the entire trip planned!
We left as soon as I got home from work on Friday. We were driving the 4 hours to Cincinnati. His friend actually was driving while we sat in the back together. We talked and talked and this was the first time in a long time where he talked and actually listened. It was a real two way conversation.
I was basking in the moment! To my disbelief, we had been doing well over the past week. It definitely wasn’t enough to say things were back to normal but it surely was a step in the right direction. We were talking, laughing, and playing once again. It reminded me of the old times. He planned all the little minor trip details. I didn’t have to worry about anything.
“Sen, this weekend is all about you. I want to show you that I don’t want to hurt you. I love you!” he said in such a seemingly sincere tone. This was the first time in a long time he talked like this.
I love you too! You can’t keep doing me like this though.
I know. Let me show you I know.
We partied and did the things I wanted too. This was also a rarity. He usually always hung with the group regardless how I felt. Since we were trying to see if things could work, we didn’t need to be up under everyone else. We went to the concerts, toured a museum, and sat up laughing at night. We danced too. I mean we really danced. Spank isn’t the most rhythmic person. He actually struggles to find the beat and oftentimes looks like he’s going into convulsions when he attempts to dance. It’s quite a hilarious site. His shoulders, arms, head and feet are all going in separate directions to separate beats. I loved to dance and he was at least doing it to make me happy.
I was feeling good! It was starting to feel like things were getting back to normal.
We arrived back home Sunday evening! We were like two people making out for the first time. We couldn’t keep are hands off each other.
Sen, I don’t want to get a divorce. You gonna cancel the divorce so we don’t have to go to court tomorrow?
I don’t know…
I think we had a really great time together this weekend. Lets try to make things work with each other if for nothing else for the kids.
Ummmmm, I don’t know. We’ve been through so much and I don’t want to get hurt again. I was terrified to go through the same situation again. Although we did have a very good time this weekend. This was the first trip we went on that didn’t turn into the disaster trip. So I said, “ok, I’ll call tomorrow”.
Ok, but you need to call the dude and let him know you can’t be friends anymore. You need to call right now and put it on speakerphone so I can hear.
I obliged. He didn’t answer the phone so I left a message letting him know Spank and I were deciding to work things out and I could no longer be his friend. But of course I made Spank do the same. He hesitated a little but quickly became compliant.
Was this my happily ever after? It sure felt like it was.
