Sarah, are you and dh reconciling? How are you doing?
Ashley, I'm sorry your ex is so stereotypically awful.
Bridget, I have just barely started looking at dh sometimes and seeing the older person he will be. It's weird noticing the little gray hairs and the expressions and posture of someone much older than how I think of him. We met for the first time when I was 21, and he's a few years younger than I am, so he's always this brilliant young man to me. And yes, it is sad. For me, though, what's worse is looking in the mirror and seeing the older woman I'm becoming (much more rapidly than dh) and realizing there is nothing I can do to stop it.
Wah, I just made myself all angsty right before bedtime. When I have to go brush my teeth and look in a mirror.
