I know the feeling. My 60 year old on again/off again girlfriend called me yesterday to say that it's off again because she has "concerns" and I told her that was fine. If she still has those concerns when I get released from here in a few weeks then I will assume that I have her blessing to get crazy in Nuevo Laredo.
I have heard so many stories of people getting wiped out by ex-wives that I was a bit surprised that it happened to me and I got taken by a gal that I wasn't even married to. She forged documents, transferred titles secretly, managed to do quite a bit without leaving any documentation behind, and then fled. Bloody amazing!
Oh well, the one good thing about starting over is that the second time around you can do it better based on your previous experiences.
And while I find the Texas desert to be entertaining I sure am looking forward to spending time elsewhere
