Happy Birthday To Me and My Beau

June 22, 2011

Yesterday was my 41st birthday!  I was very happy to spend it with my two daughters, my boyfriend Ron (yup, boyfriend – it’s official), and his 5yo son.  Funny thing is was Ron’s birthday too!  He turned 38 though … guess you could call it robbing the cradle, but not really.

We all went out to dinner, and Ron was carrying Josie on his shoulders, and as we walked in, a couple turned to us and said, “What a beautiful family you have!”  … Ron didn’t miss a beat and said, “Thanks!  Best 15 years of my life!” which was funny, because we’ve only been together for 2 months.

At dinner, Lila burst out and asked us how we actually met.  I stuttered… what was I going to say? “Well Lila, we met at a bar and I had a one-night stand, and it just took off from there.”  So, I just said, “Ummm… we met at a restaurant.”

Ron piped in and said, “That’s not the whole story though…” He turned to Lila and the other kids and said, “Your mom was out to dinner with a friend, and I saw her across the room and thought she was so beautiful that I had to talk to her. So, I did. When I did, I realized that she was not only beautiful, but smart and funny too, so I had to ask her out! Lucky for me, she said yes! So I asked her out again, and again and again.  And now, I’m totally in love with your mom.”  Wow.  He made our one-night-stand sound so romantic!  Thought I loved him before, but now… I’m head-over-heels.  I hope this never ends.

Last year at my 40th birthday, I didn’t think I could ever possibly feel happy again. Here’s where my head was at just a little over a year ago.  Not to say I’m happy because of Ron, but I’m really happy with him.

    It’s been a while since I read your blog. I am very excited to know that things are working out for you again…..

  2. Things are looking up; life is (once again) good. I agree with marriagecoach1: the corner has been turned. Then again, I agree with the unbridled even if profane enthusiasm of the 2nd comment from anonymous. Yeah with three exclamation marks.

    If nothing else you’ve seen what we all knew all along. Love will find you again. There is always a silver lining up ahead. You just have to believe in yourself and the future. It’s a valuable lesson not only for yourself but to pass on to your daughters. What a difference a year makes. So happy for you! (Sorry for all the cliches but they fit!)

  6. Sounds like you have turned the corner to emotional healing.
    Blessings on you and yours
