To strengthen my resolve I made a list, rules of engagement or rather rules of non-engagement. I found it in a shoe box beneath a milk crate behind the Christmas decorations in the far back corner of my bedroom closet.

rules of engagement

I can't have her. I push myself away from her. I don't make eye contact with her. I don't touch her. I don't breath near her. I don't live near her.

~ It's a hard thing for me to read --worse to remember. This time I'm going to hide it where I know it can't sneak up on me again. I'm putting it in the kindling box in the garage.
