Taking Inventory – an exercise in gratitude

I live here, in my sanctuary by the sea, where the pups and I walk every morning as the sun rises over the ocean. You, Fuckstick, were forced to move back to suburbia where you, by your own words, feel like a fish out of water.

I bought the Beach Castle after the ghost of you chased me out of my home that I had so generously shared with you. The Castle has proven to be an excellent investment and has appreciated in value 20% in these past two years. Moreover, I am now under contract on what used to be our home. I will cash out over six figures and will have tax advantages from selling it as an investment property. You are now stuck back in your former home for probably two more years and you are at least $100k underwater. You had to give up your ego-fulfilling bachelor pad to move back into YOUR haunted house with furniture you bought on Craig’s List. If, in two years, you are ultimately able to short sell it, you will likely get stuck with a deficiency judgment. And even if you somehow escape the judgment, the loss will not be deductible and you will have to report the debt forgiveness as taxable income.

I enjoy my 15 minute commute over the intracoastal waterway, via the boulevard, generally around, oh maybe 8:30-ish, with light traffic and usually a little reggae music. Meanwhile, you crawl 45 minutes through stop and go traffic on surface streets, past the WalMart and the Chik Fil-A, until you get to the semi-truck-infested interstate.

I kept my true and healthy friends and jettisoned the traitorous people you surrounded yourself with. Your manic-depressive, MLC-instigating, running buddy was found dead in his bed of an overdose of booze and prescription meds.

I have reclaimed, as my own: The Sandbar, Costa Rica, West Palm, Fort Lauderdale, South Beach, Crystal River, snorkeling in the Keys as well as in the Dominican F***ing Republic. I have explored Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, Rome and Florence. Troutface took you to ….. Everglades City.

I have taken the time and energy to heal myself, properly process my pain and have thus regained my strength and confidence. You have chosen to try to band-aid your brokenness with a ‘girlfriend’ who you have attempted to break up with at least 5 times, who you don’t want to have children with, who you don’t want to live with, who you don’t want to marry and who makes you feel like you are hanging out with your cousin. You feel ‘stuck’ and like you are ‘just existing’.

So how’s it all working out for you, sunshine?

As for myself, I’m feeling pretty damn good.

So, GFY.

I love this! STBX and I lived near the beach in St. Pete early on our marriage. You just made me remember FL so fondly. I just gave to erase the fact that the Gnat was with me.
