Like Tupperware

Sometimes when it rains it pours. It's tough when you've got stresses going on in both work and personal, but there's nothing really to do but muddle through it the best you can.

I'm touched and grateful for all the recent comments and off-site emails I've received during the drama of the past few days. It's very helpful to me to get outside perspectives, like seeing an issue through different lenses.

I'm still not sure how this will end, or if this is the beginning of "The End," but I know I'm resilient, like tupperware. I've survived my share of heartaches and heartbreaks, and I know I will get through this. It just sucks to be in the middle of it.

FWB still calls me like usual. Most of our "relationship" is over the phone. If nothing else, I hope we can always be friends. To be honest, I'm not sure what I want this to be. I haven't  decided if I want to make a Commitment to him, but I didn't (and don't) want it to end abruptly for something stupid I did.

I hate to admit this but I'm thinking of dragging out my ancient copy of The Rules for my own self protection :S Maybe you could do the same?!

Oh sure isn't life grand!

My sense is that, with a little time and distance, the tempest will end up in the teapot and you (as in the two of you) will make it through this and emerge closer. I also think that rather than tupperware, NYC (tough, enduring and with a generosity of spirit) is a more apt metaphor.

I think jman is actually FWB!

I am not even a FWOB! Just an intrepid blog reader.

I have written three comments and deleted them each time. Tough for a dad to give his 2 cents.

But, they all had something to do with the 'reset' button.
