Chapter Twelve: Having a bad day

You know those mornings where everything goes wrong and you just wish you could climb into bed like it never happened?

Yep. I'm having one of those.

So I gave myself a little treat. Since I can't go shopping and I don't have any chocolate within reach, I put on Boy and I's song.

As it was playing, I thought about everything that Boy and I have gone through in our nearly four years. I thought about my student teaching and how he supported me. I thought about how I cheered him on as he looked for a job. I thought about our home, our pets, and our friends: the life we've built together. I thought about the stupid games we play, the peach schnapps that wasn't water, and the road trips. I thought about the little spats and the make ups. I thought about the choices and the compromises.

And, for the first time, I created our board:




Now I can't stop smiling.
