8 months and counting

August 23, 2010

I’ve a bit overloaded these days, so I haven’t had many of those quiet moments to reflect and post what’s been going on in my life. 

Here are a few quick updates.  Hopefully I’ll have more time soon.

* BF and I are on to our 8th month of dating bliss!  I am so glad to have him.  I’m looking forward to his birthday so I can treat him as special as he has treated me over these past few months.  I don’t wait for birthdays to show him, but I really want to pull out the stops for his birthday.  I love him so much.  It’s so amazing to have someone you can depend on.  A small part of me still wonders if the other shoe will drop; but I’m not letting that evil sister keep me from feeling all the joy and love that I have with BF. 

What’s next for us?  Well, hopefully we can get away soon.  We’ve talked about taking a trip for months, but other priorities get in the way.  I thinking I’m going to take the reigns if we don’t make plans by the end of the year.  Valentine’s 2011 vacay has a nice ring to it. 🙂

*Life otherwise is great.  I still have so much to do – clean my closets, lose weight, save money, travel, grow my hair out more, stop straightening it, blah blah blah – but for now, I’m just keeping up, keeping balanced to maintain my health, and doing what I can when I can.

What’s new with you?

I don’t know what it is, but I feel uneasy.  I guess we’ll see what my spidey sense is picking up on at some point.

in mourning

July 15, 2010

Today I seem to be mourning my single life.  While I love BF and I am 1 million percent happy being with him, I am finding myself a little sad to have lost my single life.  No more spur of the moment happy hours, late nights, or girls trips – without thinking of someone else.

But then again, no more being on the scene, tired of the same old nothing, wondering when I’ll find love, and wondering if I’ll ever get married.

I’m so glad BF is so consistently what I need.  It makes it easier to move on to this new phase of life.  Having him grab me and kiss me over and over again as he walks into my house – having him take out the trash – seeing him go outside of his comfort zone for me – having his family miss me when I’m not there – having our families like each other so much – having BF there to say, “Don’t worry.” when I wonder if this is really as great as it feels….

While it doesn’t help with mourning my previous fabulousness, it does show me that I am entering a new and amazing fabulousness with BF.  I just have to figure out what this new fab looks like for me – a formerly, perpetually single girl in the City.

i’m here!

But barely.  As I’ve said before I need blog freshness, but I just don’t want to let this blog go.  I’ve started another blog – *gasp* – but I’m not ready to share just yet.  In fact, when I do share, it will only be with those who actively follow this blog, so comment if you want to journey to the next episode. 🙂

But until I’m ready to shift into a new phase more completely, I will be sure to update here from time to time.  This blog still has the complete story, so to speak, so I won’t let go of it soon.


My birthday was amazing!  The Friday night even turned out to be a good mixed crowd.  BF came out to support and I just felt like I had it all.  It feels good to be so comfortable with where you are in life.

Saturday, BF took me to dinner at an exclusive restaurant.  To recount the highlights – I had a special dinner with BF overlooking the City; there was cherries jubilee at our table; the food was amazing; the band played Happy Birthday and Pretty Woman for me; and the maitre d’ pulled me aside to inform me that BF’s family loved me, especially his mother, and to ask when was the wedding date, lol.

It has been a perfect birthday and week.  I’m extremely happy and I hope it never ends.


June 16, 2010

It would be so nice to go through life and be ordinary.

Instead, I always try to acheive and I am worn out by it.

What do I want/need?  One thing at a time, not fifty!

I need decisions to be made, not just actions.  Yes, I’m impatient.

I want to be me…why not, you can be you!

I need time alone.

I want to fast forward several months.

I want to know.

weekend goal update

June 14, 2010

Well, I managed to get a few things done in between helping BF with his family this weekend.

weekend goals

Unfortunately my eating wasn’t that great.  I had several of my college girlfriends in town and we ate and drank all kinds of high calorie foods, lol.  Oh well.  I had a ball walking down memory lane with them. 

I did manage to clear my living room counter, so I guess I’m 1 for 4.

weekend goal

June 11, 2010

I’m slipping and sliding on my efforts to get things done over the summer, so I need to refocus.

This weekend I will do the following:

* Eat only 4 meals at 200 calories each

* Clear one tub of clutter

* Clear living room counter top

* Walk on Sunday

For some reason I looked at my arms today and had a flashback of practicing swim strokes for swim team practice.  I miss the grace and strength that comes from being committed to a sport.  The way your body takes on the posture of the sport. 

I hope this weekend is pretty enough for bike riding.  I am ready to feel the strength and confidence that comes from the physical control you exert when trying to master your body’s reaction and condition.

Happy Good Friday!
