A pleasant time...

As soon as it is 6 o'clock in the evening, we pour ourselves our first drink over ice and get ready to totally relax. It has become our ritual and we look forward to it. The benefit of it is, that it helps me sleep a lot better and last night I managed 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I would say that it works a heck of a lot better than any sleeping pill I could take. You could say that I have found the missing element to solve my sleep problems.

Yesterday, I got introduced to salty, crisp chips with vinegar and was hooked on them immediately. Together we finished the whole bag in one sitting. I hadn't had any sort of chips in ages and it was a wonderful experience. My ex had gone to the supermarket all by himself and came back with all sorts of goodies. I definitely belief that he should do this regularly. I will encourage this kind of behavior. He had even bought brown shoe polish because he thought my cowboy boots needed a good polishing.
He has a very independent spirit and tries to figure out how things work as quickly as possible and I don't fret and let him. He is perfectly capable of taking care of himself and of solving whatever small problems he runs into. He enjoys being in a different culture and dealing with whatever comes his way and absorbing the experiences. Luckily, he can address anybody, from young to old, in English and that does help.
I think I am very lucky in that I have such agreeable ex-husbands. It does show you that I do something right. It is my independent spirit that does not allow me to stay married to them, but I like having them in my life very much and appreciate them as people. Of course, we have all gotten older and wiser and more tolerant of each other and forgiving. Maybe people shouldn't get married until the autumn of their lives.

Never having been married myself, I can still imagine that it might be better to get along with someone if you live apart from them.
I get cravings for salt & vinegar chips and have been known to eat the whole bag, then pay for it with blistered lips afterwards. I also love the ones with black pepper and lime, and it doesn't blister my lips quite as much.
