I have had this phrase rattling around in my head since my husband of 32 years and life partner of near 37 years announced his departure (the day after Thanksgiving - a few posts back - and all I have been posting about since).
I have a new life and all bets are off.
Which reminds me of a scene from Snatch.
All bets are off
I need to change my entire way of thinking.
My decisions, my lifestyle, my fears, my joys -
all are up for re-negotiation,
because all bets are off.
