This is such a wonderful song... sweet... sad... hopeful. The combination that makes no sense but is what life brings. My favorite song of his is Rock Me on the Water. But I can't find a decent video. This seems appropriate.
This was a boring night. Brought StbX over for diner as usual and so that he can do his laundry. I made the guys pork ribs, potatoes and brussel sprouts. I had a piece of salmon.
(Can't wait to get rid of StbX. I am ready to crash and burn.)
Same old, same old for me. I'm back on my kick. I've been here on this kick for a long time. What a year and a half now? But it was time to re-vamp it. Give it a good jump again. So I've cut way back on food and increased my exercise level. Tomorrow I'm putting my MP3 player on and hitting the trail to Eagle Creek. That's about 3.5 miles each way. If it's not raining that is.
My big boss showed up today. She only comes in once a month. I should know when, but I don't pay attention. The nice part about it was that she looked at me and told me that I looked great, then asked if I felt as great as I looked. Well the compliment felt nice!
I'm watching freecycle for some sort of exercise equipment. I think I want an elliptical machine. The weather is going to turn nasty soon. I may not be able to get to the gym for my walks on some days. Plus I need to add in something else. Something I can do when I am bored spitless at home that is good for me.
I think I need social lessons. No, I know I need social lessons!
My Sookie Toots had a birthday... we will celebrate with her this weekend and that of course will be a highlight for me. She is now 8. I'll take photos of the birthday girl. ;-)
Okay, so I have been "talking" to this new guy and I am lost. Here's what's so hard about this emailing thing... you cannot see the other person's face. How do you know when you have stepped in it when you can't see their face? It's very difficult. Please... do not suggest that I be myself. I think I'm frightening! Maybe I should be someone else when I write. Yikes.
There is a real problem for me... keeping grounded. I don't know what happens in my brain... but I say things and then later think... oh my, how did that sound? Then I want to send another email to explain it. But that never helps. This is really hard. Why is it so hard?
He seems like an interesting man. Has a very interesting job. Likes bikes and works on them. The motorcycle kind of bike. He seems to collect them. He lives much closer than Larry. But I don't know if we will ever meet or not. Who knows?
It's like limbo.
Enough chit chat... because this is all so much drivel. Here's a Linda Ronstadt song that I really like. I loved this album in the way back when.
Have a great weekend... whatever you choose to do.
