A holiday that I can relax finally

For the first time in 3.5 years, I got to celebrate a holiday without drama. No rushing home from work wondering what state he was in. No explaining to my family why he wasnít there because he already drank all the ďcookoutĒ beers by 2pm. No dealing with angry, slurred words for going to said cookouts without him. I knew in my heart how much he was ruining all my holidays, but didnít really appreciate it until right now, at 11pm, when I got to work, see my family, and walk to the fireworks, and Iíve only had one beer. No one was drunk. Itís been kind of magical.

I do hope heís safe, wherever he is tonight. But Iíll be honest, Iím glad itís not with me.

I hope all of you here had a safe and sane holiday too.
