Thanks Flyer5.

To think that I was originally going to title this thread as a yr of DRASTIC changes,but after talking about it with Naomi ,WE decided to go with a less drastic title.
If only I had gone with my original title idea.
This is certainly a yr of drastic changes for me.
I now have to consult with me,myself,& I b4 doing anything. This lonely way of living is the pits.

No wife,no life...... just work,work ,work
Not much joy in getting work done without a wife to share in the joy of a job well done & complete.
Everything I do,everything I see,everything............. it hits me like a 10 pound sledge on the head,
Naomi is gone from my life for the rest of my life, yes there are those precious memories,
BUT, even the good memories trigger the painful realization that there is NO more Naomi in my life :( :cry2:

More changes this yr,these are not life devastating changes tho. I needed a new sign & the old doors were OLD,the lift is an addition... a wonderful piece of equipment that makes my repair work easier,no more creeper work. Another change... I took my first ever selfie for online dating profile.Yes,i am actively looking for a wife for several months already,this living alone crap is not for me,get tired of talking to myself & answering me too.

"Doing well".... That phrase is questionable, I just stumbled thru the August 7 date,August 7,1976 was when I got married,that nite was the first for me to sleep with a woman,what a week of anticipation that was leading up to the 7th,fast forward 40 yrs,the week leading up to the 7th was a dreadful realization of no 40th anniversary,& sleeping alone on what should have been an happy anniversary celebration. Some days I do manage to get a fair amount of work done,other days I wonder in circles,wandering what I am doing. Life goes on & the realization that I will never again be able to look at my wife & ask her if she remembers what we did for Christmas of 1992. So much of memories we made will basically die with her.

Thanks,franco. I think the only reason I look as good as I do is that Mimi takes ones focus onto her !! :)

Memories never die windy & yes being single can be a drag, I'm in my third marriage & almost lost her. Just hang in there & don't try too hard, someone will come along & just click. As you know there is always hope, I hope I can one day get my garage in order other than that just good health & basic needs. Best of luck to you!

I realize that for me those memories will not die,but my point is that I can never again look at my wife, even when I am remarried & ask my wife if she remembers what we did for Christmas of 1992,sure I can remember it,but will have no one who knows that memory to share it with.

As far as this single life being a drag

It is far worse than that,the pain in my chest is a real pain that some days is almost unbearable,especially when the memories flood me.

Some days ,everything looks hopeless,but as long as there is life there is hope.
Hope for a wife to again share life with is what keeps me going,without that hope,i would just shrivel to nothing.
Unlike many I talk to,i enjoyed married life very much & miss it very much. Having that special person to share everything with is something I very much long for again.
At 5' 10.5",i weighed 183.5# Feb 27,the morning my wife died,i dropped to 167.5# & am currently holding in the 170-171.5# range..

Ya know WH, I hate to come off as the Grimm Reaper, but with this professed faith you claim to have, I'm wondering about your questioning his/her wisdom. Things happen that we as mortals will never understand or condone. That's where that FAITH comes in. To wallow in self pity is a choice some seem to thrive on. To accept the fact that the Creator (your supposed God) called Naomi back home was a blessing in regard to the shape she was in. I'm positive that she would not want you acting the way you are. If you don't open your heart in order to find this other woman you say you're looking for, it'll sadly never happen. Just having a warm body next to you doesn't seem like a very good solution. If we can't be comfortable with ourselves, we'll never be able to do what is required in a real relationship. Sorry my friend, it is what it is.
