It’s moments like these…

Sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we cry
Some days it’s hard to figure out our way in this life
But it’s moments like these that make me wish
I could freeze frame time.~Brandon Rhyder

Today was truly one of those days I wanted to put in slow motion.  Sometimes the company makes everything enjoyable.  Sometimes doing nothing with the right person means EVERYTHING.  I definitely laughed today and smiled my ass off.  Tears fell when it was time to go.

It never gets easier.  But I hope one day “we figure out our way in this life”, and it leads us to being permanently together.

Boys!

I am not a therapist or a relationship expert, but I’m gonna vent a little on the men…ok, boys that I’ve been around lately that seem to be drawn to me.  I don’t remember having these issues ever before.

Type #1-the party boy.  Anyone who knows me knows this is not my type.  Yes, I like to go out, but rarely do I drink or stay out all night long.

Type #2-the couch potato.  I am not a fitness freak, but I can’t stand when someone does NOTHING.  Active guys are totally hot.  My first boyfriend played basketball, baseball, and ran track.

Type #3-the fling.  Sorry dudes, I am very conservative and that ain’t my thing.

Type #4-the opposite.  Sorry, but if you are completely opposite of me in every form and fashion, it’s not going to work.

Type #5-the financial dummy.  If you can’t manage your money, you won’t be able to manage handling me.

Type #6-the scumbag.  Sorry guys, I have high standards.

Type #7-self centered.  I like when you like you, but you need to not always focus on yourself.

Type #8-the kind that won’t take a hint.  If I say I have a boyfriend, please leave me alone.

And then there are those who are more than 1 of the above.  Those are the ones that love me.   Because i’m a nice person, I won’t explain my example there.  If you know me well enough, you know more than you probably care to 😉

Things I like Thursday

  • Life is short, too short.  Hug your loved ones.
  • It’s amazing how much you can care about people you’ve never met.
  • Sometimes driving 8 hours in a 24 hour period is the best thing to do and TOTALLY worth it.
  • Hugs make everything better.  I needed one and I got many.
  • Thursday morning brunches at Denny’s are perfect.
  • I missed laughing and smiling so much.
  • I’ve really learned to appreciate every moment spent with ones I love.
  • I feel like my heart got a booster shot of love today 🙂

Back in business

I turned off my blog a few months ago.  ODB suggested I bring it back.

So I went and looked back at the last blog I did.  Wow how things have changed!

October was a great month for me at work.  Promotion, lots of travel, seeing ODB.  And then things turned.  Damn it, I am crying trying to even type right now.  We made it through, but it wasn’t easy.  I am not sure I was as strong as I should have been.  Looking back I really think some of my reactions weren’t the best, but they were honest.

So I’m back to blogging.  About what, I don’t know.  I don’t follow weight watchers anymore and haven’t in a couple of years.  I do still cook.  I do still have thyroid issues.  I still run (sorta).  And i’m still madly in love with ODB 🙂  So topics TBA!

Monday marvels

I honestly have no idea where my weekend went.  I did some cleaning, some working out, watched 2 horrible movies (note to self, consult Rotten Tomatoes website first).  Oh and I worked, because with traveling comes getting backlogged.  You can only do so much from the road.

Apparently PB Snickers hate me.  I’ve never had one before, we got 300 bars last week for an event.  I ate half yesterday and half today.  BLEH.  The way I feel was NOT worth the heavenly goodness.  Read the ingredients and I don’t know what it could be.  Yes, I know they are made of garbage.

I miss my ODB.  Way too much.

Things I like Thursday: Understanding

Today’s things I like Thursday is about understanding…

  • Being criticized by a certain group.  Someone completely understanding why you are upset because they know the criticism even worse.
  • Realizing complaining about above said criticism is silly, especially when the other person deals with it daily.
  • Having someone be able to ground you.  Just by listening.  Even if they can’t relate to your problem.
  • Hearing a story that happened a long time ago that had a huge impact on someone as a teen.  Silently fighting back the tears because you are thinking about how they felt in that situation.  Wondering how you would have reacted in a similar situation.
  • Someone trusting you with something they’ve never told anyone.  Something that caused them pain and disconnected them from someone.  Them knowing that you may not relate, but can understand.
  • Someone understanding how much something means to you.  Even if it doesn’t seem attainable.  Wanting to be part of something you’ve heard such wonderful things about.
  • Understanding that everything happens for a reason, even if the reason isn’t clear.
