No eggs!

Centralia, Missouri
October 16, 2016 6:30am CST
I was going to make brownies but all the eggs I have I hard boiled, so, later will be grabbing some more eggs. I need to take new photos, almost ALL of my photos were taken on trips with him, and they make me sad. Will sort them later, and shove them in a folder so I dont have to look at them and start taking new photos I guess. I'm currently staying with a friend, I have a nice room, and she has a big house to herself, so me and Nibbler have tons of space. I like the house and the area. I like I am not by myself too often. It will take alot of adjustments though. Still, I know that the things I miss, the companionship, the love, the physical touches (hugs kisses etc), were mostly gone the last 6 months or longer. I was trying to do what I could to bring us back together, but he wasn't. I dont know why or when or what happened, but HE checked out along time ago. I would have kept on fighting for Us. But it takes too. And I deserve someone who loves me, wants to fight for me. It's just hard. Anyways, my housemate and I stopped by the local BBQ festival yesterday and had some grilled tasty meat, then hit a few garage sales, found nothing, we were kinda late to those. We also made a trip out to a covered bridge which was nice. Today she wanted to head over to a folk festival that she likes to go to once a year, so I will tag along to that. Then Monday she has to go back to work (She took Tues-Friday off to chill with me). I have nothing much planned for next week, aside from going to see gram mid week. Well and being around on here of course.

It sounds like a nice place and glad you have Nibbler with you. Yes, it's normal to miss certain things, but you will have it again, with someone who will love you to the moon and back, as the expression goes.

I have heard you can use applesauce for eggs, I don't know from experience. It sounds like you are in a good safe place for now.

I had to do that not long ago. Had everything in the cake, reached for eggs and they weren't there LOL. So i quick looked up what to substitute, and used applesauce. It was edible, but not as good as the eggs woulda been!

Are you not working or on vacation? Keeping busy is good, having someone in the house close by is good too.

Very happy this morning to read your post as you seem to be coming up to the surface again. Cherish your friend and enjoy living there for the time being. Yes, you do deserve someone who will treat you like "his queen".

Breakups are hard, no matter what. But you will find a new way. It's good that you have someone sympatico to stay with and do things with right now. Sending you a big hug

I'm so happy for you that you landed on your feet with a friend. My question is, did you quit your job? I think I read that you were going to do that, so not sure if you did. Are you looking for another?

FMLA for now, if they approve it, to give me time to be sure of what I want.

Sounds like you have a nice friend. I went through a divorce a couple years ago so I know what you are going through on the loving touching kissing thing. I have a good man now he helped me through my divorce. Things will get better and when the time is right you will find a good man that will love you and treat you right.

or woman. I'm pan. heh. But actually, since then, I have.... my friend. Neither one of us was looking for it, but it happened, and I'm happy. No, I still have wounds healing from this divorce, not that things ended...but the fact he cheated on me. That will...take awhile to hear. Even thinking about it drives another knife into my heart, even KNOWING I am happier now and wouldn't change a thing.

@Jessicalynnt All that matters now is your happy. I know for a while before the divorce I said I would not get with another man but I meet my boyfriend and could not be happier.

you want a summary? caught hubby cheating on me, no way for him to lie his way out of it (like he had been doing for months), I have videos, photos and logs of x rated horrific proof. cant afford the house alone, so I up and left. he was more sorry he got caught than actually sorry..... anyways, messed up in the head and heart and currently living with a friend on FMLA

@boiboing exactly, I still love him, but I can't be in love with him, not anymore. Be easier if I could just turn that off.

I haven't used eggs in my baking for a long time. If you have either applesauce, mayo, or tofu it works (I oddly have all 3 I just don't have any sugar for my baking).
