|Life as i live it...........|
I'm very happy with myself that I remembered to blog today. Just kidding.
Had a very productive day yesterday! Even packed up more of my house! It's amazing how much stuff you accumulate over time. Some of my friends are telling me to just sell it all, others are telling me to take it all and the others are saying, "OMG you have a lot of stuff!". I at least have all my china cabinets packed, and all my pictures taken off the walls and boxed up. It looks so different in my house. Tonight I may go hang out with A, but if that doesn't happen, then I will be loading up my Durango and taking a load of stuff to my new house. I was looking at my shoes and purses last night. I have too many I know, but i just cant part with any of them! I'm going to take them all to the new house and then sort them out later! yeah, that sounds like a good plan. Same with my clothes!
My friends and I have about 4 or 5 clothing exchanges a year. We all throw our unwanted, too big, too small clothes into a bag in between events. Then someone offers up their house for a day, or a weekend, and we all dump our clothes on the floor of the biggest room in that house and dive in! There is always good food and lots of liquor! Guys are always asking to be part of the clothing exchange event because who wouldnt want to be in a house where 10-15 ladies are in their bras and underwear trying on all sorts of clothes!! pictures are very limited during these events!! lol. Then after the dust settles and everyone has their bags of 'new' clothes they want, we bag up all the rest and donate them to charity. We've donated to womans shelters mostly. It's also fun when we get together for another type of event after a clothing exchange and everyone is wearing everyone elses clothes! Makes us happy! :)
Moving onto the men in my life.....I won't get into detail too much about my past. I will say that I have met and had fun with lots of men! Some I'm still friends with to this day, and will probably continue to be. I've reconnected with men from my past, even as far back as grade school! It's so refreshing to be single and not having to worry about someone getting upset if I decide to talk to, facebook chat, skype or text a man, any man. Most of the men in my life are platonic friends, some I've 'dated' and some I'd love to date or 'date'!
I'm taking it slow with A. I think we need to move slowly, or at his pace anyway. Which I'm going to do. I can have a huge control issue if I allow it to take me over! But I need to learn to not move so fast, and to allow others to 'drive the boat' for once. I've told him point blank that I like him, so he knows where I stand. I'll keep you posted on how that's working out! I firmly beleive that everything happens for a reason, and even if we don't see that reason right away, or ever, it still has happened for a reason. I feel that the right guy will be in my life at just the right time. I feel that after 3 years of being single I am ready to take that next step and move towards a meaningful relationship with a man. Whether it's A, or someone else, I dont know, but I'm ready for it when it finds me!!
