Sasquatch and Star broke up a while back, like in early July or so. He had promised her that she wouldn’t have to move home with her mom, and that we’d take care of her no matter what happened in their relationship, so for a long time she was literally living in our basement. For free. She was great around the house. But… it was hurting Sasquatch to see her. And she kept picking at him, which was more or less why their relationship tanked in the first place. Maybe I will write more about that, but it’s sort of… not really my stuff to disclose. Hmm.
So, I went down there and told her I’d be charging her a paltry $150/month rent starting October 1. And the very next day, she had her mom come and get her. I was nice as pie, I almost always am. She just wasn’t about to be responsible for her own upkeep. Goodbye, little crazy girl. I hope you will have a good life.
Meanwhile, as you all already know, Zesty is in Missouri now, kicking ass at his new position. Of course he located a new girlfriend with impressive speed. Another Virgo like me. (This is good progress for him. His 2 ex-wives, both were Geminis, both had the same damn birthday, which was in fact the same birthday as my son. SHUDDER.) However, as is typical of his life, she’s perfect in every way (remind me some time to share with ya’ll the story of the girl who loooooooved sucking cock) but… . well, in this case she is way too needy for attention and even has committed the cardinal sin of wishing to be exclusive with him. Zesty is really not a big fan of exclusivity in general. And he’s really really not a fan of being pressured in any way whatsoever. So the new girl is not looking like a long-term prospect.
However, I’m not doing much better myself. He’s not showing any sign of wishing me to come out at see him. I mean, he says he misses me. But his actions say, “I’m way too busy to bother with you.” Which is perfectly natural, considering he has his hands full with the new job and whatnot. But it’s hard for me to be patient. I miss him. I do my best to just let the water flow as it will but I’m human.
On the plus side, Sasquatch and I are unpacking some baggage and doing a lot of good work emotionally. We’re using Byron Katie’s method, known as The Work. I highly recommend it to you all. Our relationship is shifting around a lot, as these things sometimes too. However, we’ve been together a fucking quarter century, so we regard such occurrences as par for the course. It is natural for relationships to require a good bit of work over time, so we are used to it.
