Who I am…

I married young. I don’t regret that decision, but I do regret decisions I’ve made since then. Now that I’m separated from my husband of 24 years, it’s time to find out who I am.

The question is: How much will the patterns of my marital past influence my suddenly single life?

I chose the name Rinse and/or Repeat when I was washing my hair. I mean, the instructions say to Rinse and Repeat. It made me think “Have I been doing this wrong for over 40 years?” Should I repeat the hair washing? Hmmm. The point though is that I’ve been conditioned over the years to do things a certain way. So now it’s time for me to open my eyes and question things.

While I’m exploring this shit, I will continue two of my most beloved behaviors… Coffee and dirty vodka martini’s. You’ll find me drinking one in the morning and the other whenever the mood fucking strikes.

Post script… I am ghost writing another blog called LifeAndLoveAfter40 which tells the sad romantic tale of my best friend, who is in love with a man who needs to ‘take a break’. Do check it out.

    So why did you marry so young?

      Hmm, well, I guess the simple answer is “he asked” and I was madly in love with him. Also, 25 years ago, it wasn’t so uncommon to marry very young. Thanks for the props on this being a ‘cool chic blog’ – you’d probably really like my other one “Boldly Mocking”. Will check yours out as well.
