A very dear friend came in to get her hair done and she was almost in tears.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

She said, "Youre not the one to talk to."

"Why not?" I asked. Somewhat surprised.

"Because I left my husband", She answered very timidly.

She was right. I never sit still for divorce, especially since I knew her husband and their life. I started being very sneeky and listened to her complaints, one of which was that she hated him.

We went through the pro's and con's, which took quite a while, by the way.

After we were through she discovered that there were two people who weren't perfect in that family. One of them may have been her.

Happy Transformed Husband

My husband had to go on a trip this morning. I was in the shower when he left. When I got out I went in the bedroom and he had made the bed, as usual. However the nicest thing he did was to turn my side of the bed down and put the chanel changer on my pillow, hoping I would go back to bed. I didn't and I won't. He worries too much.

He went from doing nothing around the house to practically taking over. And the sectacular thing about that is that he went from being disallusioned and in perpetual limbo to being happier and more fulfilled than he ever thought possible.

Approximately two months ago I began having trouble with my heart. So I have been sidelined from working on my book. Ironically, my editor had a retinal bleed at the same time, so all of the material I had ready for us to collaborate on could not be done either.

I am finally to the point that I can think. Thinking is a crutial if you want to write and for some reason when the heart goes, so goes the brain. My brain is somewhat back, however poor Elaine (my editor) has had another retinal bleed and another surgery.

We are almost at the end so it is frustration for both of us. However, that's the way life is. Huh?

Life Mission

It will be my life mission to change the way society at large thinks about the fair/unfair domestic situation. The success of the marriages of our children and grandchildren depend on it.

Getting Back to Work

I have been back to work for a week. Even though I'm not supposed to be for two more weeks.
I have been pacing myself. Doing someones hair then sitting for 15 minutes or so. I am not good at accepting how long it takes to get my energy back.
I got a phone call that lifted my spirits though.

A lady said, "Thank you so much for putting yourself out there. Because of your book, I have a whole new appreciation for my husband."

This was a women who already had co-operation on the home front.
See---it could help even good marriages.

Good News

I talked to a lady who had just returned from Chicago. She said that a woman who was sitting in front of her on the plane was reading my book.
She couldn't help but ask how she was enjoying it, so she could report back to me.

The answer was, "I am loving it. It is so easy to read. I just wish I had some of this information before I got my divorce."

Loved that she liked it. Hated that it was too late!

Heart Surgery

I am now on my second week of recovery from heart surgery.
I am not a very good sick person. It seems even my brain is too tired to let me do anything.

Patients!!!!!It should be over soon. My pacemaker should make me a whole new woman.

Thanks to the genious Doctor Wong.
