Settling In

It’s my mother’s birthday. She’s 78! Wow. I hope to look as great as she does when I’m 78. She spent a quiet time at home with my Dad (who is in his 80’s). They didn’t feel much like going out. And she said there was a thunderstorm in their area, so that complicated things (well scared them from wanting to drive). It use to be snow that kept them from driving, but now that they live in Florida, it’s thunderstorms.

I am finally settling in with my new job. And have a routine down pat now. I wake in the morning and exercise, shower and drive to work. Come home and hop on the treadmill for about thirty minutes. I think I am more energetic because I am happy. I love what I’m doing!

So I have been talking a lot lately with the guy I went on a date with. He wants to go out on another date. And I want to also. We will see where this goes. I’m hopeful, but not jumping in head first. However, I remember the words of a good friend “you are ready to fall in love, when you are ready to get your heartbroken”. I am sure that I somehow misquoted him.

    Happy bday to your mom! I love bdays.
    And I think your routine looks pretty much like mine, to be honest.
    As for the guy? Go! Nothing to lose there. If you still enjoy him, keep going out with him. Why not?

    Glad to hear that things are working out and that you like your job. In my opinion, I don’t think you can lose by going out on a second date. It’s a life experience!!

    I hope you do the second date if only to know if it is going to a third.
