Surprise!

The screwdrivers came back. Unexpected. Unannounced. They brought along other tools, including a saw I was also secretly pining for.

Monday night I went to a painting class with a friend. She brought sangria and Aleve and I tossed both back. That’s unusual on both counts but I had a killer headache, partly from crying my head off over screwdrivers. We sat in the back of the class and laughed and painted and had a much needed fun night.

When I got home the screwdrivers were on the dining room table. In a box. Gift wrapped. With a blue bow.

It was a strange marriage.

It’s a strange after-the-marriage, too.

Cue the “Chariots of Fire” theme song. That’s awesome.

That is so sweet. It seems like there are not many people who get to have a good relationship with their ex after a divorce. It looks like you’ll be one of the few, and I am glad for that.

How great it is that y’all are managing an amicable separation. Good for you, good for him, and most of all good for the kids.
