Noni's Stargazing Saturday: Who Ever Heard Of A Smooth Sailing Roller Coaster?

***Noni is one of my really good friends from college. We were even roommates for a year and some change. But she's done with school (for now). She's starting a family with a baby boy and working on herself and her relationship at the same time. Things won't always be easy, but they're usually always interesting.***

In last week's post, I expressed concern for Noni's love life. She described things as perfect. Usually that's a good thing. But for Noni, it wasn't.

She was so worried that things had no where to go but down. Perfect meant it couldn't get any better. And in Noni's world, when things go down, they go waaaaay down.

But I am happy to report that things are no longer perfect, nor are they horrible. She describes things with Eric as good. Good was the best word I could have heard from her mouth. Because things weren't perfect, there wasn't that worry that the rug would be pulled from under her at any second.

That also meant her desire to sabotage things was also gone. But her plan to gain independence and continuing to pursue her goals is still in place. That awful job she's working is giving her the money she needs to get back in school starting in January.

Her plan has altered a bit. She's no longer planning on leaving town to go to school. At least not definitely. For right now, she has set herself up to enroll in a school that's where she and Eric now live and upstate where her brother lives.

If things are going well with Eric when it's time to start school, she will stay. I hope that works out for her because keeping her family together while also finishing school is the ideal situation. Eric never seems to stay "good" for long, but he really doesn't wanna Noni to move away for a year. He will probably be on his best behavior until she starts classes at least.

But even if he turns horrible halfway through January, at least she'll be living in the same city as her son's father, and he can help with the raising of that son while she finishes school. So either way, it's a win-win for Noni's plan.

She wants her son to be proud of her that she made a lot of sacrifices to give him the life he deserves. The way she's going so far, I think he will be very proud.
