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.

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 🙂

2014 year in review

January

Honestly I don’t remember anything from the first month of the year, except I had a horrible run at 3M.  It was Shiner all over again.  I could not breathe for anything.  I finished and was SO glad to be done.  And I spent some time with ODB which was SO nice.

February

February was crazy.  More than 1 ice storm.  Bought a house by myself, on my birthday. Ran Austin for the first time ever and I felt fine, but my time was disappointing.  My godson turned 1.  I had an admirer hot on my tail and I was not thrilled about that.  Went to see ODB.

March

Another crazy ice storm.  ODB came to my house for the first time and I LOVED every second of it.  He helped me do so many things!  SXSW, I went to see Jimmy Kimmel, met Adam Carolla, and went to Rachel Ray’s party.  Less time and less music but still a fun year. Big work trip.

April

Another work trip, got to see ODB.  San Francisco for LUNA.  Fried my iphone and had to get another.

May

To be honest, I don’t remember anything except missing the Drive By Truckers concert.

June-July

The most  days I think I’ve ever had with ODB in one month!  Vacations, 2 trips here to see me, one there to see him.  Our first vacation together and we didn’t kill each other (and it was amazing).  Saw my college roomie.  Big work function.  Took some added duties at work.

August

Other than Dessert Dash, drawing a blank with August.  I do know it was HOT.

September

Sister’s bday.  It’s the beginning of the year at work, I don’t remember much.  Ran relay and I did pretty horrible.

October

Several work trips.  Several ODB trips. Several really good runs.

November

Another work trip.  BIG speedbump for ODB and I.  Made it through and I love him even more after all of it.  Several ODB trips.

December

LOTS of ODB (not enough).  LOTS of work.  Christmas with family.  Time with my BFF and godson.  An extended drive down 290 (smirk).   And I closed the door on someone who no longer deserves to be part of my life.

In 2015 I look forward to the story that will be written.  It is my hope that my love for ODB continues to grow, I get to see my godson more, and I spend less time worrying about work and more time enjoying life.  CHEERS!

Fun Facts Friday

This edition is very random to say the least.

  • My kitties don’t seem to mind the puppy friend in our house (roomie’s dog)
  • My roomie has the same bedspread as me.
  • I was in Waco all week, it’s growing on me, but I wouldn’t want to live there
  • I had a good time getting to know new people on my trip
  • I missed ODB terribly.  I miss him every day.  I haven’t seen him in over a month and it makes me very sad.  We are both just so busy, we’ve not been able to make our schedules mesh
  • I got a promotion 🙂
  • I got hit on A LOT this week.
  • I told ODB everything that happened this week.  He was not amused by my admirers.
  • Apparently I don’t speak guy talk or think like a man.  He’s teaching me how to do this better.
  • I finally had a swim that made me feel like a REAL swimmer!  Unfortunately my breathing on and off land still sucks pretty bad
  • ODB had a rough week.  This pains me 😦
  • I need to find a Halloween costume.  We always do a Halloween party for our LUNA end of year celebration.
  • I’m bummed that I couldn’t go to SA to see Adam Carolla tonight.  I REALLY wanted to go.  I’ve met him but have never seen him live.
  • I have a lot of work to do at home this weekend.  That also includes getting caught up on sleep and work.

Anticipation

I had been looking forward to today for FOREVER.  Time off from work for 1.5 days, a road trip, seeing old friends, and 2 bands together for the PERFECT show.  Getting down with the rock bands

Things fell apart Wednesday, which was pretty shocking to me.  I am not going to go into details, I’m not going to trash talk anyone and I never will.  But some hurtful things happened with people I thought were my friends.    I guess I am just way too optimistic when it comes to certain things.

So I decided it would be best if I did not go.  My music soul is crushed, but my heart is probably better off.

Reason to work

 

I’m back from vacation.  I am not looking forward to going back to work, or being back to reality.  To be honest reality sucks when it comes to certain things.

I’ve been spoiled in the last month.  Head over heels happy kind of spoiled.  And I am greedy.  I think I deserve to be that happy all of the time.
