Life goes on.

08 Apr

Life was pretty much status quo until we moved out to Long Island.  Setting up a home with a spouse who was gone 14 hours or more a day took most of my time.  The hours he was at home other women my age were involved with PTA , coffee cloching and shopping.  When he left for work and on a lot of holidays they were home with their spouses.  This was life for almost fifteen more years.  Naturally, I began to make an alter life.

I got involved in politics for several years.  Being a Democrat and a Liberal  there were not too many people who agreed with my views.  But  I worked hard for the ones that did.  This did not endear me to the other cops my husband worked with or their dutiful wives.

I had made some female friends.  These were all transplanted city people whose husbands were all civil service (the common thread)  but I always felt like a fraud in their company.   I didn’t care about PTA or shopping etc.   My interests lie elsewhere always.  Don’t get me wrong, these were all wonderful people.  Most I cared for very much, but they didn’t understand who I was and I didn’t know how to explain who I was.
