Neighbor Husband, I’m warning you now. Skip today’s post. Come back tomorrow. He hates the non-perky ones, since he comes here for his pick-me-up.
I debated about even writing about this tonight. You guys have heard a little about my divorce. A little about what’s going on with Eli. I don’t want it to be too much gloom and doom, because I’m sure The Neighbor Husband isn’t the only one coming here for a happy respite from the day-to-day grind. Balance is good. But this site is about food and life. Real life. Our life. And sometimes it’s not all perky. Sometimes it’s out of balance. Now would be one of those times.
This morning, The Ex had a heart attack. He’s currently in the hospital, recovering from having a stent put in and holding court in the ICU. With any luck, he’ll be discharged Friday. That alone amazes me. Two days after a heart attack? But I guess that’s good. I felt like I couldn’t ask you to think good thoughts and prayers for Eli, and not ask the same for The Ex. He needs them. Our relationship aside, he’s a Dad, the only Dad, to two amazing kids. They need him. And they need him to be well.
At this point, anything else I can segue-way into seems off. Hollow. Insincere. It’s just not the time nor the place. I just ask you to think good thoughts for him, as he gets better. And in the meantime, hug your family just a little tighter and appreciate every second.
Tomorrow, the arrow is aimed clearly for perky.
