The Quest to Be a Normal Gay
I have been single for exactly 46 days. Who would have thunk I would have survived this damn long? My friends all made wagers that my singlehoodness would not last. Who can blame them? My track record for staying single is not very good.
I have kept myself occupied by having a very hectic schedule. If I am not working out with my trainer (3x's per week), I am playing tennis in three leagues I belong to. I sometimes work out AND play tennis on the same day.
My life has sped up so fast since I became single. I often feel like I am barely holding on by the seat of my pants. There have been consequences. My once orderly house has become messy. My dogs are not getting enough attention. I am even taking risks by driving home from bars inebrieted.
The best way to describe how unbalanced I feel is to compare myself to a three legged chair. I am all wobbly because I am desperately missing my fourth leg. In a nutshell, I need to be a more normal gay. Life doesn't have to fly by so fast. I am not missing out on anything if I stay home. That's a lot coming from a Gemini, huh?!
So, I ordered some cookbooks from Amazon. What in the hell do cookbooks have to do with my condition? They hold the promise of giving my life more balance. It's a start... especially since I lost my cook in the divorce.
The closer I get to being more balanced, the happier I'll be in the long run. I am all about happy endings. :)
