    4 years and..

    I am so happy for you Maddalena! I haven't been on here for a while glad to see you are doing well. I cannot say I am at that same point but good to see it is possible to move on

    Hmmm I stumbled across this post and I am feeling the same way I need a change mostly job related. I am hitting the 4 year mark and have been at my job for 26 years! Life is too short to be stressed out all the time. Interesting to see others are feeling that way too

    Third anniversary

    I too checked in here as I am approaching the 3rd anniversary. Your words really resonate with me. As hard as it is to experience this journey it is helpful to know that others are going through this too and some have come through even stronger than they were before. Although to the outside world I may seem like I am doing ok that never ending sadness is still hanging on. I don't let everyone see it but it is there and comes out at times like these. I hope that we will all someday be able to truly feel happy again.

    Bad lecture on beyond grieving

    That's ridiculous! She has no clue. It should be a good thing, how else can you survive from day to day. Enjoy your wine

    Not sure I'm ready for this

    Yes Brokenheart2 I just talked to him again and we are planning on going out again this week. He is going to visit his family out of state on Friday so he asked if we could go out before then. He seems really nice and sweet. It felt like he was coming on a little strong in the beginning but I think he took a cue from me and gave me a little space. I am looking forward to our date

    Not sure I'm ready for this

    Ok so I have an update. We went on a first date on Friday. He was nice but it was not an ideal date. His friend had tickets to a show a couple hours drive away. We went with another couple so it was a little awkward. The couple however turned out to be so entertaining that it was actually fun. I had a really good time but didn't really get to know him that much. It was a lot for a first date! He has been calling and texting a lot to set up a second date. Turned out he was in my town tonight so we went out for a drink and got to talk a lot more and it was nice. I am trying to take it slow but he is already trying to set up future dates. I guess I will wait and see but overall I am glad that I took this step.

    I had tp put my dog down today

    I am so sorry for your loss. That is terrible and such a hard thing to go through. My heart aches for you.

    Not sure I'm ready for this

    Ok so I talked to him again today and we are planning on going out next Friday. I agree I have nothing to lose it's just a date right? Why am I so nervous??? Catnip. I liked ARod back in his Texas Rangers days. Both the Red Sox and Yankees teams look different this year but I have a feeling it's going to be a good season for both. Looking forward to their next matchup. Carey. No rush on taking your rings off. I still think about putting them back on but will wait and see

    Thanks for the encouragement! He sent a text earlier today. Plan on seeing him next week Catnip I have to say I miss Derek Jeter. It's just not the same without him.

    Thanks Baylee. Your response made me laugh out loud. I will keep you posted
  13. I am heading on the 3 year mark and I recently stopped wearing my wedding ring. Well I'm not even sure I officially stopped but I wasn't wearing it on Monday when I went to a baseball game. Not just any game but opening day of the Boston Red Sox . And then it happened a guy started talking to me and said he noticed I wasn't wearing a ring and asked if I was single. He then asked if I would be interested in going out sometime and asked for my number. He seemed really nice and my friends thought so too so I did. He called tonight and I didn't plan on saying I am a widow yet but when he asked if I had been married before it just came out. I am really not sure I am ready for this but it does feel kind of nice to have someone interested. I also found out he is several years younger so that's a whole other thing. I guess I will just wait and see what happens.

    Five years to the day

    Thinking of you. I know how hard it is to let go of his things. I am 2 and 1/2 years out and still have a house full of stuff. Sometimes the cleaning out part can be therapeutic. Hang in there.

    The reality of being widowed

    I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. That is a lot to handle at once and especially hard to face it on your own. Sending positive thoughts your way. I hope things start to get better.
