Rebecca sent me my piece of the plate. It's a segulah or omen for me to find my soulmate. Instead of throwing out the bouquet at the wedding the mother's of the bride and groom broke a plate together. "The breaking of the plate is irreverisble, symbolizing that the couple's commitment to each other should be should be irreversible and eternal. The pieces of the plate are then given to unwed guests as an omen for them to find their soulmate" (The wedding paper). It's a different take on the bouquet and garter. I like it, I think I'll frame it or something....

I'm taking care of Ernie the Amazing Guinea Pig. He's death defying attitude has got to be seen to be believed. He's 7.5 years old, that's about 100 in human years. I don't know that for sure but the average guinea pig's life span is anywere from 5-7 to 4-8 years... he's an old man! I'll post a pic of him later today. :)

Has it really been 2 years? It's flown past quickly. I've been single for the past two years as well. Two years ago, I was just getting over a breakup with a man I thought I was going to marry. Looking back on it I realize that I was settling for something that was just not me. I'm very happy now. I don't have to answer to anyone, I don't have to share my home with anyone, I get to deal with only my bullshit. It's refreshing to know that if I remain single for the rest of my life, I would be okay with that. I'm really okay with being by myself.
