Smitten with Him

Craigslist Date #1

So… I went on dates with two of the gentlemen that I weeded out from craigslist.

#1 was a total flop, but not until two days after our actual date.

I was going to call him Bruce because he looked so much like Bruce Campbell did 10 years ago (when BC was the same age as the man I went out with Tuesday night – except craigslist Bruce had a much weaker chin 😉 ). Our date seemed to go well. I liked him. I gave up my weekly gymnastics session to meet him. I even mentioned him in my pitiful post about Loserman’s birthday. He seemed nice at first, but they all seem that way at first, right?

Doing it All By Myself

I spent Valentine’s Day weekend in Phoenix for my 2nd Sk8cation.

The drive was amazing. I took an extra day of driving both ways so I wouldn’t have any problems.

On the way there I went into and through the gorgeous mountains! The check engine light came on in Lil Bear and I started to worry. In my head, I panicked a little, but rationalized things out and started thinking of a plan.

Happy Thanksgiving

happy

This year I wasn’t going to do much of anything for Thanksgiving. Doom-n-Gloom and Thing #2 are going to a friend’s house and Thing #1 will be working.

I mentioned it briefly when I was over at Alaska’s house Tuesday night.

Wednesday afternoon I got the sweetest phone call. It was Alaska calling to ask if I would like to come over and spend Thanksgiving with his family and their friends.

I’ve already met some of his family and I thought it would be an interesting change from my normal quiet 4-person holiday…

With a family much different than the one I came from…

We talked about it for a minute and I accepted his invitation.

Change Hurts

Change Hurts

Today I don’t want to be grateful

For the time with him

The changes he inspired in me

Not right now

Thinking about it really hurts

Being grateful isn’t bringing me joy today

it hurts today

But I will go out on my walk

And try to show my gratitude to the earth

Looking at the lovely colors in the leaves

And drawing in the enchanting scent

Of the earth as it prepares for it’s change

Not ready for mine

Because change hurts
