Weekend at the cottage with NG breaking up with me VIA TEXT and friends getting you through the best and the worst.

I’m just going to start with the crap part of my weekend. To get it over with. And end with better stuff so I can focus on moving on…with my chin up.

I was up at the cottage this weekend, with my parents, enjoying the absolutely gorgeous weather. Sunday morning, I was out in the canoe with Abby…

…when suddenly, I must have got within range of a cell tower and I got a text message. From NG. Breaking up with me.

Yup. He is turning 46 years old next month and he broke up with me via text. After spending Friday night with me and saying NOTHING.

I just about passed out in the canoe. When I got back, I hiked up the hill behind our cottage to get enough reception that I could call the coward. The explanation? After just over a month together, he’s not falling in love with me, so he needs to move on.


I cried. A lot. And not because of losing NG, but because all I felt was that there must be something wrong with me. And that is a horrible, horrible feeling.

I cried all the way home and went straight over to my neighbours house and then she called others in our ‘hood for support. Later last night my doorbell rang about 20 times in 3 seconds. When I opened the door, this is what I saw:

Myย running teammates did this for me.

I still am feeling really stung and hurt and doubting myself…but the love my friends showed me, definitely helped me out of a very dark place yesterday.

I probably slept for 4 hours last night. My head feels like it is filled with helium and I am incredibly grateful for concealer to somewhat deal with my puffy eyes with dark circles.

But let’s talk about the good stuff that happened on the weekend. Because really, it’s what my life is made up of at the core. It’s what matters.

Saturday morning before heading up to the cottage I met up with my teammates for a run. We were going to do 14 miles buuuuut, it was like the tropics at 9am and we all agreed that 11 miles was a much better idea.

Seriously, I am so lucky to have these awesome women.

Some of us did some planking after the run…

Then I headed up to the cottage and Abby proved, for the first year, that she can behave herself in a kayak!

The rest of the day was spent on the dock and in the water. Abby mostly in the water!

Followed by steak for dinner!

These are the things to appreciate and celebrate. NG’s are the things to forget and move on from.

Sorry that you couldn’t fall in love with me, NG. Best of luck.

Happy Monday!

    that Son of a…!!!! Seriously??? … I actually had a girlfriend tell me that she couldn’t be with me anymore through email…so I an sympathize with your hurt. But believe me when I tell you this…

    There’s NOTHING wrong with you!!!

    You’re funny, delightful and gorgeous. You have a big heart and a wonderful personality and these guys who don’t see that are wickedly twisted.

    If he’s breaking up via a text, you are better off without him!! Count your blessings my friend!! Of course easy to say, harder to do when hurting. You’re Mr Right will come along. Keep being you ๐Ÿ’—

    A text breakup is so weak!

    I would stay unattached for the rest of summer and enjoy it (but that is me). But don’t wear that dress too often or else you will get more dates than you can handle.

    OMGWTF. Honestly NG? I love her and I’ve never even met her. And seriously? By text? Speechless. You deserve SO much better. Again, I’ve never met you in person, but I know this to be 100% true! Keep your head up, my friend. ๐Ÿ˜Š
