My mom and I were chatting on the phone Saturday night, and after about an hour I said "This is stupid, why don't I just come over?" She agreed. So I threw the pups in the car with an overnight bag and we went to see 'grandma'. (That's what I tell the pups and they get all excited. LOL) We watched a movie (A walk in the Clouds) and then went to bed. Sunday we got up and went to breakfast at Denny's (I had the prime rib & eggs skillet..mmm) and then went shopping after I said this: "You know how material things only give you temporary happiness?" My mom said "Yes.", then I said "Let's go get some temporary happiness!" She said "Okay!!" So we went shopping. She bought a ring, I bought some new sunglasses (like I needed more of those) and we both got some makeup. Had a great time. Went back to her place, took a nap, got up and grabbed dinner and watched another movie "He's Just Not That Into You". Movie was too funny. It was obviously chick flick weekend. I'm back home now getting a load of laundry done and paying the bills.
I don't know what day next week I have the interview for the Cali position, but I'm anxious for it. I have zero patience. I want to know NOW. It's funny, I'm going on vacation in a month to the place I might end up living in. Guess I'll have to find a new vacation spot!! I cancelled my eHarmony subscription (shut up) not only because I'm sick of it, but I'm thinking I probably shouldn't date anymore until I figure out where I'm going to be living. Haha.
It is so weird how everything has changed so much for me in such a short amount of time. But you know, I'm doing pretty good. I feel like things are really looking up. I do wish I had a special someone to share this exciting time with, but I believe he will come. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but he will. I hope it happens the way I want it to, but in the meantime, life is happening all around me and for the first time in a long time I can see it and am participating in it! I have learned much, made mistakes and feel like I've been through it all - but now I know what I want and what I don't want. I'm actually feeling more confident and I know I can handle what life throws at me. I've still got some self improvement to do, and I'm doing it - however no one is perfect and I'm not beating myself up over the stupid stuff! At this point I am actually willing to take chances I've been so afraid of before, live anywhere, and I'm on the road to happiness...and when that special guy does ride up, I'll be ready, and he will be spoiled rotten! (and so will I!) ;-)
