I have been putting off saying this on here for quite some time, but it's long overdue by at least a year now. My marriage has ended. It feels weird saying that here on Livejournal because Livejournal is where that marriage began. We met via this site, dated for nearly a year through it, and then moved in together. My use of this site petered out live everyone's has and in the interim, things happened that made our marriage impossible to maintain. The divorce was finalized on June 25th. It took about fifteen minutes. Twenty-five if you count the time we spent waiting in line at the court clerk's window afterward. M and I remain friends and on good terms. Our relationship has changed, that's all. We are both in better places in our lives than we've been in forever and I am glad for that.

There's a lot more to this story... about 24 years' worth. I have, for the last year since the separation began, been seeing someone whom I go back a long way with. Actually, that's a bit of an understatement. Angie and I go clear back to my junior year of high school. We've been a constant presence in each other's lives all these years since and well... We finally saw what was obvious. We have had many incredible adventures in the time we've been dating and now that we are living together we are planning to have many more. I really don't have enough words to describe how incredible my life has become. Magic has come to it in all its glory. I am working very hard. We are working very hard, and things are off to a great beginning.

I have a lot to say. But it's hard to say it because it's easier just to feel it.

I just spent twenty minutes typing a huge entry about how awesome my 4th of July weekend was. It got fucking eaten. There are disadvantages, it seems to this more intimate form of blogging. Well I will try again, shorter this time, I guess.

-My 4th of July started on Thursday because my bass amplifier died last week and I needed to replace it. I finally found a good Peavey bass amp and was preparing to take a $350 hit to the wallet. Instead I walked into Guitar Center where it turned out they were having a 4th of July sale. I got the thing for $100 off. It was a great way to start the weekend.

-Friday night was the cast party for my theatre troupe. We just completed our big summer show. It was hard to get going again this year because we had taken a year off, but the show came together and our audience were thrilled to see us back. We ate lots of delicious grilled meat, made plans for next year, and began feeling strong as a troupe again.

-Saturday was the 4th. Angie and I had many plans but due to general lethargy overcoming us both, we only fulfilled about half of them. We ate BBQ, shopped at Ikea like delighted 5 year-olds, and took a very long, very happy nap. No fireworks, but none were needed.

-Today, Sunday, culminated in taking my parents out for supper at a local down-home country restaurant. We had a good time and Angie is really becoming one of the family. It was also a good day for me creatively. I got good work done on a Pathfinder (D&D) game that I'm writing, played guitar and bass for a good, long time, and learned to play an Amon Amarth song.

-My 4th of July was so good it took four whole days. I had a great time on a holiday where I usually wind up lonely, depressed, and not knowing what to do with myself. Instead I made incredible memories and had joyful experiences. I owe it all to the company I keep.
