I did not know what to say. It was pretty intense.

Today I'm out with a friend for her birthday and then will be chatting with my honey the rest of the evening.
Btw - the sunsets are incredible here!

I'm gonna hang out with my new friend tomorrow (Mario) - my kindred spirit in humor. He makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe. He also loves Disneyland so now I have someone to go with regularly. I got him an interview at my company because his contract job is almost up, and we are going to have margaritas tomorrow while I walk him through our interview process. I need him to have money so we he can afford Disneyland you see. LOL I know what you are thinking, but seriously, as gorgeous as he is, he is not my type nor am I his type romantically. Typically our conversations go like this:
Him "Did you eat your oatmeal with protein powder?"
Him "Why not?"
Me "No time. Grabbed a coffee instead."
Him "Damnit woman! Then you will add 30 minutes to your workout today."
Me "I'm not working out today."
Him "Yes you are."
Me "No I'm not. I have cramps."
Him "Oh for fuck's sake..."
Me "I do! And I'm still sore from yesterday's workout!"
Him "I don't care, get your lazy ass up."
Me "Bite me."
Him "Don't tempt me."
Me "Bring it!"
A conversation I recently had with Gary:
Me "So what are you going to do with your house in London?"
Him "I don't know yet, we can decide that later."
Me (choking on my coffee) "We?"

I'm all giddy dancing around the pool like a fruitcake.

I've also decided that when my house sells (if it ever does), I'm going to celebrate and take myself to New Orleans. I really want to go there. Even if I have to go by myself. Just things I'm thinking about today.

Made sweet and sour chicken stir fry tonight and it turned out pretty good. Work has been making me crazy, but I left ON TIME today and did NOT take my laptop with me. It is hard. I am a perfectionist and it takes time to make things right. I am missing my friends from home and my old co-workers, but I am making some new friends too. It takes time. Life has certainly changed a lot for me and I am trying to take in each moment. The last few days got the better of me, but I have to remember how far I've come. All of this has not been easy. Things aren't exactly the way I want them quite yet (they never will be...) but I am learning to just "be". A hard thing for a girl like me to do. I have a fantasy I allow myself to think on once in awhile, but reality is what you make it so I have to be careful with that. I'm looking forward to a nice weekend. Not sure what I'm going to do yet, but you'll be the first to know! ;-)
I really like the song I've chosen this week to play on the blog. It means something to me.

The capper for the day...
I stopped at a little mini mart on the way home. There were 3 punk kids blocking the door harassing people. Normally I would take the safe route and drive to another one, but not today. I was in NO mood to be any more inconvenienced. I got out of my car with a ball point pen in my hand, slammed the door, walked over to the entrance like my feet were mad at the ground (with high heels on) sporting a pissed-off look on my face. The three punks looked over my way, backed away from the door and didn't utter a peep. Smart of them. I was ready to jam that pen into someone's neck if anyone tried to touch me.

So tonight we went to Lucille's BBQ and she asks me "So when are you starting your Xbox thing?"
My Xbox thing?!?
I said "Are you referring to P90X extreme home fitness?"
She said "Yeah whatever it is..."
Saturday, August 14, 2010
My P90X stuff came the other day. I'm both excited and nervous to get started. I'm famous for starting and then quitting things, and I'm trying to break that cycle. I know I won't drive to a gym, so I think this is a good alternative for me. I'm also not exactly the Richard Simmons type of exerciser either...LOL. This is serious, hard-core stuff. No pansies!! There are two people at work who I found out are just starting it too, so I have accountability and people to talk about it with - which always helps. I did "Body for Life" that way, but that was what these people call the "baby starter kit". Do you believe I can do it?. I'm always tired, so the challenging part will be to not want to take a nap instead. I can get all sweaty in the comfort of my living room, then go jump in the pool to cool off. Root for me, I'm gonna need it!

I spent the evening down at Laguna Beach for sunset dining at C'est La Vie (I had an amazing Chateaubriand and Cabernet!), shopping at Chico's (new bag, sunglasses and jewelry) and a gourmet espresso that burnt my tongue. I had a fabulous time with my mom, but too bad it wasn't a night of passion! Pffft! :-) I'm outta my funk now, thanks for the advice Lea!

Let me see your answers in comments or emails. Pretty please? I need some cheering up.

I just joined the world of P90X now that I've lost 47 pounds. Time to get serious. For those of you who know about P90X, you know what I'm about to embark on. For those of you who don't, look it up. It is a pretty amazing program.
Went to Laguna Beach today with my friends from NJ and had some yummy seafood at the awesome Las Brisas right on the ocean. Back to work tomorrow, but seeing that I worked a bunch at home due to an influx of panic emails, I may as well have been there. :-/
I am so frustrated with the world of dating right now I could puke. I don't even want to talk about it.

I had such a great weekend. I talked to my best girlie friend today and she said I love kids more than I let on. I guess I do. I love big families. Maybe the guy I end up with (if that happens) will have some and make our family bigger. I'm such a big goof ball. Part of me is really having fun and discovering myself, and part of me is craving a really good relationship with a man who loves me for me. That, and I need some really good SEX. LOL! I have a life now, let's get on with it already! hehe...
Took the kids to airport tonight :-( and my mom will be going back to Seattle soon. I will be all by my lonesome again.
As I was telling you, my step son (Bill) and his girlfriend (Erica) came down to visit for a few days. We've been swimming and went to Disneyland. We ate at the Blue Bayou restaurant and the Monte Cristo was amazing!! The kids LOVED it. This has been so great - I feel so blessed. My family keeps getting bigger and bigger. I made my famous and requested "Cheryl Pasta" and bbq'd steaks as well. Tomorrow I'm making a big breakfast for everyone. I love cooking and having lots of people at the table! There are many more good times to be had here - I can't wait for the holidays now!
My former boss (Helen) and I went to D-land on Monday night and had such a blast. She is way more fun outside of work. LOL! Splash Mountain broke down on us right before the big drop (bummer!!) and we had to exit our logs. Helen touched the wall and was very surprised it was made out of paper-like fuzzy stuff and not plastic or contrete. Weird! While we were waiting, we took pics of ourselves. Great night!

Oh, and I may have been mistaken about Mike - he didn't disappear. I think I'm a bit pessimistic about men sticking around; they like to disappear on me. I sent the kids (stepson and his girlfriend) off to go get some fast passes for some rides while I sat and checked my email, and just as I see 2 emails come in from Mike, MY PHONE DIES. Of course. I'm such a tard. I'm all "NOOOO! NOT NOW!". LOL I was a little down today, even at Disneyland, until I saw that. We did all have a great time, but it is hard being a third wheel (if you know what I mean), even as a sudo-parent.
I'm still working on the pics.

I've really gotta get a new adapter for my pics - I have some great ones! SOON!
Wednesday, August 04, 2010
I worked from home today so that I could get some work done! Everyone bombards me when I'm at the plant. I'm still tired.
I will get pics up ASAP, but I have to buy a new adapter for my camera to get them onto the computer. My other one went TU. I should be able to do that in my spare time. HA. I think they believe I'm super human at work. Someone needs an earful of how I'm not. I guess I'm going to have to threaten someone for a day off. How am I going to build any kind of relationship with someone if I can barely get time to go pee? Have I told you how sweet Mike is? God, I feel like I'm 15 again...
