It’s Not Me. It’s You.

I can barley remember a time that I didn’t know you.  And even though you’re an important part of my life, I have to wonder if it’s not best to part ways.

I thought supporting you would be good for me.  But let’s face it, I’m not the only woman you’re involved with. I get the attraction.  Brown­ and sweet.  But lately when you’re around I think I am too into you.  Do you feel the same about me?  Likely not.  I want to believe that you still stand for the greater good. On the other hand, I am beginning to wonder if you are good for me.  I have become selfish in your presence. I don’t want to share you with the kid­s. And of course not with other women. 

 I didn’t want this to be public, but I realized that many others are aware of this situation already.  Plus, they probably notice the change in me; one minute I am excited to see you then next-not so much.  When others question me, I tend to downplay your impact on me.  As if the weight gain isn’t a big enough clue. 

Maybe it is time for a break. Just for awhile.  We could try a year.  It’s not me.  It’s you. Yes, Thin Mints, it’s you.  So until this time next year we may need to take a break.  By then I may be able to work off the ten pounds you helped me gain.  By then I’ll have more money to spend on you.  By then I’ll have that warm fuzzy feeling you gave me the first time we met.  Don’t worry.  I’ll explain it to the kids, and the milk and I will be fine. 

 Take care.
