fit to be tied...over the hill & tying the knot

where to begin?


i'm going to tell the story of a little girl who never played house and then married a man she couldn't resist who broke her heart and her faith and her hope...and left her ready for a future filled with alone. she didn't go softly into that alone night, oh no, she raged against the dying of the love light - she raged on every online dating site and at speed dating events and as a regular at her favorite bar. she raged until she constructed an entire future built on alone - a future she became not just resigned to, but excited about.

and then some guy came along and her whole single future plan was shot to hell.

and now i'll stop talking in the third person because, seriously, that's pretty creepy. so here i am. in the least likely place i ever expected to be - 41 years old and engaged.
