More response after I take a shower.
GG and I don't specify "temporary" versus "permanent" because we've already accepted that there isn't such a thing as "permanent" when it comes to SITUATIONS.
So, do I foresee this being temporary? Yes.
Do I know how long "temporary" is? No.
Do I know the precise details of WHAT the change is? No.
I just know that I need some space from expectations and responsibilities in some area and the area of the kids isn't optional-so, that leaves the adult relationships, of which GG is the key one.
Is our friendship secure and sound? Yes.
But-I didn't ever doubt that.
Maybe later I'll post a little "history on us" in here...
There are other threads out there-and I've asked a couple of the mods to help me move them all to this thread, so that they are one. I didn't know when I first started posting that it would end up being so confusing having separate threads about our "life" all over the place.
I did the work to FIND the threads, but I'm not a moderator-so I can't move them. Unfortunately, merging them all together is a huge job (I assume). So, I'm not putting any pressure on the mods to move them all in any particular timeline-because they already have lives of their own and cleaning up my mess, well, it's not really their job.
So I'm at the mercy of their time and freedom.
