|A Twinkle in the COLD sky...|
Who would have ever thought that a city girl from Texas would travel back and forth as many times as I have in the last few monthes between Utah and Denver.
Currently, I reside in the Denver office, doing a "Meet and Greet" with the clients and desc engineers I speak to all the time on the phone. There were also Astros tickets involved at Coor's Field...and as I told the Desc Engineer that accompanied me last night (he got the tickets....who could pass up a chance for "Good Times, Good Company, and Good Beer." There was a piano bar involved post game and great conversation.
It's been an interesting last month. I can honestly now say I'm over "IT" and nothing about it makes me squeamish and nostalgic anymore. I met an amazing guy....a real gentleman...complete with good conversation and hand holding. When was the last time a guy actually held your hand in lieu of a kiss because he was too shy??? I love it. Taking the steps now....but right now....it seems to be going well. There are other confusing matters of the heart....but for some reason, they don't seem to matter....all I seem to have on my mind are the butterflies I can't seem to shake everytime I get around him. I haven't felt this feeling in a LONG time.
Job - it's a job. I'm making myself a better engineer - nuf said.
As for everything else....I was walking down the 16th street mall in Denver, strolling, and just enjoying the weather and the people for what they were yesterday when I realized how much I miss the big city. Granted, I was all dressed up business style for the office and I got to make a run to Starbucks...a non-Utah thing...so maybe I was just excited about those two facts of life. But as I made a few new friends and sat on a bench, I realized that I miss skyscrapers and towers; the people and night life; the hussle of traffic and actually WAITING to cross a road at a crosswalk. I miss the smells and the sights. I fell even more in love as the Desc Engineer and I walked the 14 or so blocks to Coor's Field.
I just had to say all of this....I don't think I have smiled this much in a LONG time. The last month, with the exception of last Sunday through Wednesday, has been excellent. And its about damn time.
