Every morning I wake up and the first thought in my head is usually “I love my husband!” I still can’t believe we’re married after thirteen years of “my boyfriend” and everyone considering us married. I’m so blessed to have found my best friend and we announced to the world we plan to stay together for the rest of our lives.
I bet my long time readers are a little curious about the woman who I know was trying to take my man… The woman named Mike… Yep, I usually change names or avoid them at all costs, but not this person.
A few weeks after our wedding she shows up because she drove past me on the street and didn’t want me to think the didn’t wave, assuming I had no clue who she was. I don’t trust the person, why would I pretend otherwise? That day, she painfully said she’s happy for us. I showed her my rings and we were obviously glowing. It’s something we’ve both been doing for months now. He lights up when I come in the room. I think I do a bit too.
My coworker and friend said we’re so sweet together it’s nauseating.
Anyway, Mike has been calling my husband every few days or so “my boyfriend won’t be here, can you come sit with me?” Or “I’m lonely and need a friend, can I come over?” She has said a few other things along the same lines. A few days after the school shut down the grades of her kids because of covid she tried to invite herself over while I was at work. He told her it wasn’t a good night because he had all of the kids and was making dinner. She still tried to invite herself for dinner. He told her no and stuck by it. The next night he tried to call her and there was no answer. The following day was Friday and she tried again to come over. This time she said that she tested negative for covid three weeks earlier. Although her kids’ classes were shut down less than a week earlier.
By this point she’s starting to get passive aggressive with him and saying “it’s fine!” Rudely… A few days later she says similar… Leaving out the Covid part but pouring on the guilt a bit thicker.
He finally got to see the side of her that she’s shown me for all of the time I’ve known her. He now understands why I don’t like her and he doesn’t want to see her anymore. She drove him away. I think she’s jealous of our relationship. She’s been depressed lately. She has gone to rehab because of her drinking. She lost visitation to her kids because she came back with connections to people she met there and she’s been allowing addicts to stay at her house.
As our lives have been improving, hers is going the other way. I feel sad for her, but I’m not going to let my family get sick because of it.
2020 has been so different from the others. 😍 I’m so glad I have married my best friend. He even told Mike I’m happier now because I feel like I’m his number one choice, and that’s all I needed. I guess in some way it’s true. That’s the conversation that changed her tone with him.
This is the kind of man every woman deserves. Or the type of person everyone needs to find and fall in love with. I’m so glad I have found my happy place. 2020 gave me “happily ever after.”
