Truly, thank you for this and my thoughts are with you as you work through your R.
We're all of us haunted by yesterday, and we got no choice but to keep marching into our tomorrows. Keep marching boys and girls. Keep marching.
However this year I started teaching literature and history in our homeschool co-op for highschool aged kids.
I've read Frankenstein, 20,000 Leagues, several short stories, Phantom of the Opera, Robinson Crusoe.
History we've delved into the constitution, industrial revolution, WWII, Greek mythology.
Keeps me busy.

So true -- I think of the A and the AP for at least a few minutes hourly -- not every minute like I did before, but all the time. My H maintains that he rarely thinks of it, except when I bring it up. For him, it was a terrible place that he got into by mistake, got stuck in, and is glad to be the hell out of. I am the one haunted.
It stinks, sometimes, but I am hopeful that as time passes I will feel less so. (Coming into my first "affair season," so that compounds the issue.)
I just wanted to feel more in touch with the person she was well before the A. Its part of her too.
I do now enjoy kids movies more than I ever have...easy and innocent...
