Old habits die hard

Our divorce was finalized almost 2 weeks ago but my ex-husband texted me right away to let me know that there were no problems with his nuclear stress test this afternoon. I called him a couple of hours later for his social security number (a form said I needed it) and then hung up inadvertently on him when he answered because the lady told me that I didn't need to put that on the form. He called me back right away to make sure I was okay. I just remembered to ask him if he got the letter I told him about from the cardiologist's office. You emit radioactive particles for up to a month after the stress test and today's transportation security has equipment that can detect that. He frequently travels on trains, across bridges, and on planes. I never bothered to get one for me but I told him to make sure to get it so he isn't hassled as he travels. He told me that he didn't so I said to call the office in the morning first thing. His response? "Yes dear." Then he sent me a picture of him in a suit. He needs to buy a new one and wanted to know what my opinion was. Typical guy--can't go clothes shopping without a woman's opinion. I told him that he looked great in it. Hey. . . at least we still get along.

@NJChicaa Every separation is different. It was better for me once we finally severed all ties. However, as long as you two are getting along fine and don't have any expectations of ever getting back together, then I don't see why you can't remain friends.

Haha, I am offended I do not need no women's opinion. I will just let them laugh at me and go, you have to be cool to pull this off. Trying to cheer you up. I say screw it, many advantages to being single. Take advantage of it and glad its almost over in regards to the technical aspects. Much respect to how you both stayed civil and still care for each other.Always something to be said about that.
