Random Thoughts

So here are some questions that I think about a lot. You would think I have a lot of free time. I don't. Wait for it.......
When you go from sharing your bed with your boyfriend/husband/partner to having the bed to yourself, do you stay on the one side you always slept on? I have had my "own" bed for 6 months and I still hug the one side. How long does it take before you starfish out? Do you ever?
How about this one. I always wore my wedding ring. I really never took it off except to clean it or to put lotion on my hands. I slept with it on, I showered with it on: seriously. I have had it off for 6 months now. When will the mark no longer be visible on my left hand? I can still feel the indent if I touch that finger. It almost feels as though the bone was formed around the wedding band. Does that every go away?
This one is really fun: I find that in a lot of conversations, especially when I am dealing with customers, I bring him up. For example: "my husband does ...., my sister in law does....., my husband's work". How long until I catch myself BEFORE I say it instead of after it has already left my mouth? I thought I had more control over my mouth than that!

I had to make a very deliberate effort to sleep in the middle of the bed. A year later, it still feels sort of weird ... but mostly luxurious. Sometimes that stuff is easier if you frame it decadent. Entire bed = Entire box of chocolates.

Be kind to yourself. All of this takes time.
