The past few weeks have been turmoil for me. I don’t want to get into every detail, but in a relatively short period of time my girlfriend and I broke up, I moved to another city and took up residence at my sister’s house. As you can imagine, I have been busy moving this and that, closing some accounts remotely, and stuff you have to do when you move.
Ending a relationship that lasted several years is very traumatic to everyone involved. Moving to another city is as well. Not to mention the fact that I miss our dog terribly. Here I am in my mid-40s and I am suddenly reinventing myself.
I don’t know if any of my siblings or other family will read this, but everyone has been great. People have put me up, helped me find a place to live, hit the garage sales for dishes. I wish I could thank each and every person who has help me get, well, rebooted.
That’s what this is, you know. A reboot. David version 2.0. As a reboot (maybe Christian Bale will play me in the movie) it gives me an opportunity to reinvent myself. What should I do? What kinds of friends should I hang out with? I could, perhaps, blog about my reboot on these pages. But I’m sort of a private person, and I am not sure I am that narcissistic. I’ll think about it.
