Hi, I’m Adrienne. I know I’m getting over this whole divorce thing because some mornings I actually wake up and feel relieved to be single. I love to make lists. My favorite kind of list is the one you write when you’re feeling really upbeat and motivated – the kind I fold up and tuck in a drawer to look at later on the days I’m feeling anything but upbeat. Here’s the latest:
Things you don’t have to worry about anymore when you’re single:
- whether or not I snore when I sleep on my back
- who’s going to take out the trash (I already know it’s going to be me, so there’s no one to nag)
- consulting anyone else on what I decide to buy
- not having to share the closets or the dresser anymore
Help me out here… what would you add to my list that’s great about being single? I don’t want to sound all bitter about marriage or anything, but really, we need to make the best of our situation and enjoy the good parts.
I hope you’ll want to read all about how I ended up where I am in Giving Myself Away (coming out this fall!).

Great stuff, Grete! Having been single several times myself, I can attest to the garbage removal dilemma, LOL. I can’t wait to read more about your character, Adrienne, and everything she faces. Looking forward to the book.
A few words:: no bra while hanging out at home!!
5) eating ice cream for dinner!
Not having to wash a single pair of men’s pants (that’s UK pants – what do you call men’s underwear in the States?), or clean wee from around the toilet, or watch Top Gear, or be disappointed that you’ve not been listened to AGAIN!
Yes, yes, and yes! Thanks for those great additions to the list!
