Fitting it all in

Life has been busy. This time of year always seems to be. Lots going on which is great, but I’m trying not to over do it either. 

I worked my side job last weekend. Which it had been raining on off for like 2 weeks. That’s getting old! Will got back from his work trip & we had a great dinner Sunday night (date #2). It was a really nice way to wrap up the weekend.

Monday I played cornhole, but Tuesday it got rained out. Impromptu dinner with friends which I invited Will also. I figured he’s seen me dressed up nice twice so this was casual jeans stuffing down wings. 🀣 He wasn’t fazed at all which was nice to see. I am enjoying hanging out & slowly getting to know him. He went out of town again for a few days & now his mom is here visiting until next week. I told him if he needs a break he knows how to find me. πŸ˜‰

I had therapy last week. I do enjoy meeting with her. I know I’ve made a lot of improvements since last summer, but sometimes all I see is that hot mess still. She keeps it in perspective & we talk out things. Between the gym & a bday party I had a FULL week! Definitely going low key this weekend. 

Last night had a concert with the girls which was a blast!! Then we headed next door to the casino for a bit. I don’t play but it’s fun to hang & watch. Today I’ve been running errands which FL summer had kicked in. It’s hot! I really wish I could get some beach time. Perhaps tomorrow? I sent my dad his Father’s Day stuff this week so I’ll give him a call.

I leave next Monday for Canada for 2 weeks so I’ve been getting things organized for that. I’m trying not to leave it til the last minute to get ready, but you know in some way it always ends up that way. Even work I’ve been trying to get ready so it’s not a complete mess this week or when I return.

Tonight is a life celebration for a friend’s family member. But it’s at a bar & then the beach for sunset. Not sure what to expect. Maybe the bar is a good idea?

Hump day ho hums

Blah the rain. Yes we needed it. Yay we are ok longer a high fire risk. The grass is green & growing. But come on…since last Thursday night it’s been on/off & starting Monday pretty much all day rain. β˜”οΈ So over it. I miss the sun. I miss my activities. I would like to not be wearing my raincoat all the time. πŸ™„

Monday started out with me driving to work & a low tire pressure light going on. On the tire I just replaced 6 weeks ago. Work was a bit of a shit show cause apparently people didn’t do things while I was gone which made meeting the deadlines that day insane. I left work & hauled ass to the car dealership so they could look at the tire. Turns out another nail (WTF??!!) and the computer needs to be adjusted cause it was the other side that was flat (not the side it was saying). Again wtf??? Thank goodness again for that extra tire warranty cause that’s another $400 I didn’t have to shell out when they ordered the tire. πŸ™ I then headed to the gym where my face & jaw was starting to hurt so much I half assed it just get it done. I apologized to my awesome trainer…she knows when I’m not right & isn’t a jerk about it. I had taken a pain pill at work early, but I can’t drive on them so couldn’t take another. Got home, made dinner & went to bed! πŸ‘Š

Tuesday more rain. More of the same work crap (still catching up). But changed my dinner plans when cornhole cancelled! My favorite local event is going on…restaurants offer fixed menus for a low price for 2 weeks. Usually these are upscale or places I never go so trying to get to a few new ones again this year. Except my frigging tooth pain is really putting a damper on things!! Nevertheless I was determined last night to eat & it was fabulous. Had a good time catching up with my gf & her bf. One of my favorite stores is having their semi annual sale so I stopped there & can you believe I found exactly what I have been looking for?? On sale??!! That never happens so it made for a much improved day!! And I got a cute new dress for peanuts at the thrift store on lunch break. Day improving. πŸ‘

Today again it’s raining. Yeah shocker. πŸ˜‚ I’m hitting the gym after work & then home. I need an early night to catch up. My tooth is still hurting & it’s been a week so I’m thinking there is something else wrong? I have a follow up dental appointment tomorrow.

Good news…William & I have continued to stay in touch. He’s back in Seattle, but coming home Sunday so we’re doing dinner that night. Date #2!! I’m trying not to be too excited or get ahead, but I am looking forward to seeing him & spending actual time together. It’s been almost a month we’ve been “talking” yet have only met that one time. Which is really weird for me (I’ve never done anything like this before) although I like it! How crazy is that? Things are moving slow which is good right now cause I have a lot of my own stuff going on. Fingers crossed 🀞 

Puh-lease

When your ex shows up at cornhole with (I guess) his new GF (they kept making out & grabbing each other so one can only assume which ewww you’re almost 50 & she definitely looks it!) of maybe a few weeks. 

1–thanks for showing everyone what a douchebag you really are without me having to say a peep. πŸ˜† 2–for again confirming I’m the best you’ll ever have. To everyone. πŸ˜‚ Seriously. The consensus was “what a downgrade”. I just sat back & enjoyed the spectacle cause that’s what it really was. I mean who really has to try that hard? So ridiculous. πŸ™„

Yup that is the latest on POS. Who’s name is Joe. Forget anonymous. The innocent have nothing to hide & the shitty need to be outted. So moving forward no more changing of names here! I wish I could say it’s the last of Joe too but he apparently likes to creep me. After I walked away in October (cash in hand mind you!) there was no more contact. I went on living my life. Apparently my life was looking too good though cause he not only unfriended me on Facebook but also blocked me on Thanksgiving. Yup, I’m that awesome. πŸ‘ Fast forward to mid-December & my group ran into his group out on the town for a city festival. Let me be clear…I have awesome friends who have stood by me despite my dumb choices but they were THRILLED that Joe was gone cause they hated how he treated me & he’s a douche. Especially among my guy friends it turns out he was very hated (I had no idea guys were that judgemental of other guys). Joe ran away (such big balls he’s got), but some others in his group stopped to chat with my group & me. In fact DD1 was there & she gave me a hug & all chatty. Apparently her dad hadn’t yet told her I was evil & to be shunned. Moving on to end of January I was on a blind date set up (which was going so bad already) when Joe & DD1 walked by. I mean he sprinted so fast it took me a minute to register (I was ready when they left with a big smile & so sweet “oh hi there how are you?”). I know he had contacted my big brother a few times about kickball but my bro said he’ll never play on our team again (phew).

So fast forward to cornhole Tuesday night I wasn’t super surprised he was there. My bro started up a new league so Joe knew I’d be there. Duh. Did I mention after the Facebook blocking he then started friending some of the friends and circle I hang out with? Like how fucked up is that? We laughed but go find your own friends. I did. You were my plus 1 & now you’re not. I don’t contact or hang out with any of the people he’s “friends” with. I mean they are such shitty shallow people I have no idea why I wouldn’t want them as my friends. Plus they are like 20 years younger than him (or more!). I guess by finding an older lady to date now he’s no longer the oldest looking person in pictures. πŸ˜‚

My bro kept checking on me asking how I was. But really I was fine. When you step back & really see a situation you realize how stupid it all was. I should have been gone long before but apparently I had to learn my lessons the hard way. Joe hanging all over this lady really had no effect on me. I wasn’t upset or bothered. I kept playing & hanging out & having a good time. There’s a lot of new people & 1 guy even came up at the end to chat a little. It was a really good time & I’m looking forward to next week.

Got the Monday’s?

I’m really trying not to have the blahs today but it’s raining again and that just sucks! Lol.

The weekend was good. Sunday was the baseball fundraiser and cornhole tournament. We did pretty good considering we thought we’d be knocked out after the 1st game but we played 4 rounds! There were like 40 teams which I’ve never done anything like that so it was all new. Good times! Unfortunately no single baseball dads (or any for that matter) hanging around so no luck in the man department. Haha! Still it was a really good day with friends.

Tonight starts the new season of cornhole with 18 teams playing. That’s just crazy! It should hopefully be a good time and I’m curious who all the new people are. Unfortunately if this rain doesn’t go away I’m sure it will be cancelled. Boo!!

Tinder has been pretty active for me. In fact I sort of stopped swiping just so I could catch up and weed thru who’s been messaging me for any real contenders. FF and I are still texting. He’s out of town at a sports function with his kids so sort of laying low there. Hopefully when he gets back we can meet. I don’t want to text somebody I don’t know without meeting for too long you know?? Another guy who wanted dinner turns out now to be too busy working and just wants FWB. I was like thanks for being upfront and see ya. I’m not really looking to hook up with a bunch of randoms. And like I’m going to even give it up without getting any dinner??!! Please lol

Baby stepping forwardΒ 

It was a busy week. The new gym has been great. I went Wednesday, Thursday & this morning. I have to do a bunch of visits by sept 30th to meet my work reimbursement program. It’s aggressive but I’ll be in shape! I surprised myself this week what I actually was able to do so I can only imagine in a month how I’ll feel.

Tinder has been interesting. Haha!! I actually have been messaging and now texting a guy. He’s a firefighter so we’ll call him FF. We seem to have easy conversation which I hope will happen in person. The other guys have been interesting. We’ll see if anything comes of those. 

Here’s a funny. POS texted me on Wednesday asking if I had some shirt of his. I said nope must of left it at somebody else’s house. I need to get my blended family books back from him. Perhaps I’ll stop by next week for them.

Cornhole starts again Monday with 18 teams. Maybe there will be some cute single guys! I’ll be curious if POS is there. Going over to my gf’s in a bit to grill and practice cornhole. Tomorrow is a fundraiser with a cornhole tournament. My brother’s gf is going to play with me. It should be fun!

I spent a few hours at the beach again today after the gym. It’s actually rather relaxing. I take a cooler with snacks and a magazine. I nap or people watch. It’s nice to just zone out and get some sunshine. 

Oh big news…my roommate’s daughter had the baby this week! And apparently when they leave the hospital Sunday they’ll be coming here for a few days. Wtf. I have never lived around a baby before and I don’t care to. This better be a very temporary situation!
