Bobby and I were thinking of you over the weekend and I decided to send you a note. Our life together has been moving forward on a very positive track. I finally found a new position and left the asshole I was working for. You know sometimes there is just no other word. Okay, egomaniac would be a viable substitute. I now work for the nicest person I could imagine. Very genuine and smart, good leadership skills. Yay for me. But the best news is Bobby has been promoted to a regional position and now has his first office in the regional headquarters in the city, no less. He is so excited and devoted to becoming the best employee they’ve ever had. He’s inspiring me to be better too.
Having made some positive changes in our careers, we have been managing our personal affairs with a better balance. While there have been a few moments when I have had to remember not to trade sex for favors or for honey-do projects, we have both become much better at expressing our desires. Granted Bobby is more expressive than I am but I have opened up in a much healthier way and sex has become so nice. In fact, I really do feel connected to him in a way that nothing else can replace. Right, sex is a good thing! Bobby even says he no longer feels like I put the ‘job’ in blowjob.
And finally, the trigger that sent us to you, the kitchen remodeling project. Not only did we finish that project, but we busted out a wall between the living room and family room for what I call an update and Bobby calls remodeling. And we finished all of that by the middle of December. So two and a half years on the bathroom and two and a half months on the kitchen. YOU are a miracle worker. I do still tell people that our remodeling project cost us $5000 over our actual expenses for marriage counseling. A slight exaggeration, I know, and worth every penny. Had we not gotten stuck on the kitchen, we would have never made it to you. So even our relationship was remodeled in the process.
All kidding aside, we both feel that we had such positive results from our experience. Although we felt like we were “sweating it out” on the sofa in your office, we still employ many of the things we learned there every day. We are very grateful for the guidance and greatly respect your expertise.
All our best.
Bobby and Jenny
