Today I’m happy to announce a change in my life.
What started last weekend as a trial separation has now become permanent.
It was a difficult decision but it had to be done.
After what seems like forever and with many ups and downs, my winter coat and I have officially broken up.
I know………it’s about bloomin’ time, right?!?!?!
It seems that spring has finally arrived in the Bluegrass so, even though we’ve been through a lot together (remember the Poop Episode?) it is time to finally make the break.
I’m not sure how the coat feels but I’m feeling pretty good about it. I know there will be mornings when I’ll long to have its warm arms around me but I’m ready to strike out on my own.
And to make the transition a little easier, I’ve taken up with a light jacket to ease the pain of those still-too-chilly mornings. Hopefully after a couple of weeks I’ll no longer need that security and can saunter down Main Street without freezing to death.
But never fear.
I expect a reunion between me and my trusty coat sometime around the end of November/first of December.
Unless, of course, I can go for a newer, slimmer frock.
But in the meantime, I’m counting the days until I can rekindle my liaison with my capris.
Or as normal-height people call them “walking shorts”.
