Welcome to the Hungover Widow, my home for figuring out how to reconfigure your life after losing your beloved.
When my husband, also my high school sweetheart, George, died of cancer in April 2013, I was really lost. How do you deal with unbearable loneliness? And how do you try to remake your life when everything’s fallen apart? I try to find answers for those questions here. I’ve tried writing, yoga, decorating and, worst of all, dating. I also tried performance driving, swing dancing, trance dancing and (once only) belly dancing. I’ve coined the term Widow’s Entropy: when all the appliances in your house figure out that our husband’s dead, so they all know to break down at once.
I try to post once a week to offer something I’ve learned or sometimes something that just really irked me. Currently, I’m working on gratitude (which goes against my basic nature). And shopping for decorative cushions (which only makes sense to me). I’m a former lawyer so I really don’t want to go back to work. Oh yeah, I’m writing a book on why this is all so absurd…to go from happily married to dating online with a bunch of guys who call themselves “RubberDucky37” or “RacerX911.”
So please subscribe to my blog–that’s what all those annoying pop-ups are for, and maybe we can through this together.
