Stilly & Ash,

Thanks for checkin'.
For now, I'm just kinda off the grid and regrouping a bit, but okay. Really.

Wait a minute. W just walked in front door and called out "Hello!" (how weird is this?).

Well, she came to give DIL something upstairs. Talked with DIL, S, and a bit with me.
If every interaction is a chance to show W the improved me, I'm afraid I blew it. Wasn't expecting her at all and I was not really in a mood for it. I was pleasant, though. Just detached. Apparently, she has removed her wedding band. Not that I care; I removed mine several weeks back. Just an observation.

Why do you think you blew it? Doesn't sound like it.

Why were you the first to take off your wedding band?

Not sure. Probably because I felt more withdrawn than detached during the ten minutes or so that she was here. Withdrawn had become my style the last year of M, so I think I showed her "More of the same" than "Brand new me".

But, hey, she did show up unannounced. At least to me. Turns out my DIL was expecting her.

You said you were polite to her though. Polite + withdrawn = detached. Not splitting hairs, but my definition of withdrawn is aloof or giving her the cold shoulder. If you spoke politely with her in response to her questions, I don't think that is withdrawn.

Remember, we do not want to pursue. It's ok to pull back so long as it is not in a rude or cold way.

I still don't see where you blew anything. Even if you did, which I don't think, it's ok. You're human.
