The One That Got Thrown Away

Mama Kat's prompt:

3.) Tell why you are ecstatic "The one that got away" got away.

So, as suggested by the title, he didn't so much as get away as got kicked to the curb. Same idea, though.

  • The clicker is all mine! No more stupid sitcoms for this lady.

  • We can eat healthy.

  • No more eggshells to walk on.

  • I can feel comfortable walking around in a bathrobe/towel/naked.

  • Less No yelling.

  • No more staying up all night wondering.

  • No more driving in the middle of the night to pick him up at work.

  • I can raise my son my way.

  • I have more money.

  • I do not feel guilty about buying things.

  • Can no longer relate to Pearl Jam's "Better Man".

  • Can talk on the phone whenever and to whomever I want.

  • Don't have to share the blanket.

  • No cats!

  • No parade of sketchy people through my house.

  • I can find a nice Irish boy.

There are more (as you can imagine) but I will save them for another time :D


  1. Nothing wrong with a nice Irish boy. :) Seems like you're a lot happier without him, good on ya. :)

  2. sometimes we have to kick um to the curb to get on with OUR own lives;)

    power to ya;)

  3. I love 'Can't Find a Better Man!' I'm glad you can no longer relate to it though :)
