Breaking up, as the song says, is hard to do.
There’s usually guilt, remorse and sometimes ill-advised reunion efforts on one side. On the other side, shattered confidence, feelings of betrayal, lots of Ben & Jerry’s.
A week of 100-degree weather makes me want to clear furniture out of the den, or at least cover it in plastic, install a misting fan and stay inside, though I’m not convinced that counts as a staycation.
