As crappy as last weekend was, this past week up through yesterday has been amazing. I spent every night with Kevin except two, well three counting tonight. Last night was extremely good. I figured he was going to be working at the bar, so I made plans to go out with my sister here in town (to a bar called Sherm's). I went up to the bar to order my second drink and I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when I saw him on the other side of the bar. Turns out he was there to promote his music. He said he told me about it, but I don't remember it at all. Either way it was a wonderful surprise. My sister got to meet him and from her first impression, she approves.
By the time we got home it was after 3am. We still cracked a beer and talked for a bit before passing out. I told him that when he felt comfortable, I'd like to meet his son. Preferably I'd like to meet his ex first, just for the sheer fact that if I were the mom, I'd like to meet the new flame before I subject my child to to that person. He agreed that would be the better plan and that one of the things against his most recent ex was that she kept pushing to meet Ethan. Actually, I'd like to meet his roommates before the ex. That would make walking to the bathroom in the wee hours of the morning a lot less stressful. lol
He ended up losing his phone, which is pretty much the reason we didn't get home til 3. This morning I made calls for him to the owner of Sherm's so he could keep an eye out for it and drove him to the bar he works at (Cliff's) so he could get the contact info for the guy he had gone to Sherm's with. I wasn't sure how long it would take to get ahold of the guy, so I waited in the car. Kevin came out and told me it would be a while and I should prolly come inside. I met his co-worker/boss Randi. She seems really nice. And as it turns out, her daughter is dating one of my part-timers from the store, so I was able to hold a conversation with her, which made things less awkward.
I'm not sure how much he's told Randi about me, but it's a good feeling to believe that the dirty little secret is slowly but surely getting revealed.
I would have gone to see him tonight, but I'm pretty sure he was sleeping by the time I got off work. He had stopped responding to texts about an hour before that. I called and left a voicemail for him to get ahold of me tomorrow. I'm very pleased with the way things are going at this point. :)
Tomorrow starts my week's vacation. Not going anywhere exciting this time around, but just being able to catch up on sleep, workouts, scheduling meals, submitting resumes, cleaning, etc will be nice. Speaking of resumes. I have another lead on a job from an acquaintance. It sounds like sales, which I'm not sure I could do if it's paid on commission (I take "no" for an answer way too easily). If nothing else, I can at least ask him about it. He says 40-50k/year salary with benefits. It's worth looking into.
And then there's my weight loss. I need to get back on track with working out. I've been bad. I've decided I'm going to do the program an extra week for all the time I've missed. The good news is, after about 5 days of the scale being stuck at 158.8, it moved to 156.6 this morning. I hope that means I'll be getting past my plateau. However, in a couple weeks, I'm expecting another stalemate due to my cycle. I don't think my results are extremely drastic right now, but I am feeling stronger overall and I was able to get back into my size 12 jeans without creating the dreaded "muffin top" this weekend. All in all, this week may have been a setback to my workout schedule, but I know I can get back on track, and I know that this period for Live Healthy America (there are still a little over 60 days left), I WILL have better habits formed and I will be healthier in the long run.
