Missing lunch with the girls is the adult version of being in time out for me. Simply being with them as they talk about the things that occur in their daily lives is better than binge watching something you love on Netflix. Something about being surrounded by the people who like you & all your baggage recharges your inner light. Missing a lunch with a topic this large felt like double the punishment.
According to Jane, Ex-hubby no longer subscribes to out dated thinking such as you can’t forgive your loved one for making a mistake i.e.-getting pregnant while having an affair with your friend/business partner. He now feels that life is much too short to hold on to old grudges, and things that cannot be changed. He truly feels his young lover has been punished enough by having the miscarriage. Jane mused that one time during their marriage she ran over his gulf clubs, and he refused to speak to her for weeks. My, my how things change when the mistake is being made by someone in her twenties who spends an inordinate amount of time bending over in her shorts while pretending to clean up their love nest.
Good to see Jane hasn’t lost her wit about the whole thing. Keep in mind it was only last November when their 30 year marriage came crashing down because of Ex-hubby’s affair with this sugar–excuse me his now wife. I asked Jane all the very same questions I’m sure are going through your head. She’s still younger than their youngest daughter, she just lied, and had an affair where she ended up pregnant to your friend/business partner, so what about all of this makes you think that getting married is such a great idea? The list runs endlessly through my mind.
Jane said that Ex-hubby told her life is short. He knows that she has moved on with Tarzan, and that he doesn’t look at this marriage in the same way he did theirs. Anyone else getting windburn from the waving of those red flags out there besides me? Rather than waste time setting rules into place he decided to seal the deal with her original plea to marry her. Ex-hubby says that he just wants to look forward. Jane said that she didn’t have anything more to say except for one thing… So how was that honeymoon, did it feel like the first time? 😉
