    Did we make up or WHAT?

         “You really need to update the blog so your readers know this is what really happens when you’re dealing with relationship issues”.  I wouldn’t expect to hear something like this from a man, and especially not Special Agent but this is what he told me when I shared that there was a little more than “talking” when Rescue and I saw each other last week. Oh wait – I guess I should mention that I told Special Agent about this face to face.  While on my weekend getaway with the girls down in his neck of the woods, he drove up to the resort making it our second time…

    Part Deaux

      It has been eight days since Rescue and I had our latest "incident", seven days since we last saw each other, and six days since I apologized and two hours have passed since he and I had what I hope was the beginning of a break through conversation. Yes, I apologized and the reason why is simple:  Men and women think differently. This is by no means a statement that has never been heard before, but at that moment when I pulled over to the side of the road and inhaled, then exhaled before making my call to him I realized this was the gospel truth. Now before I go on…

    In a happy place… for now

    Things are going pretty well on the “situation” front with Rescue. I’m happy to announce that……………………………………………………… Re-training is going successfully! Of course, just like that new puppy who needs to be taught that peeing on the carpet or chewing on the curtains is a no-no a couple of times before he gets it, the same applies with Rescue learning the do’s and don’t’s. Do’s: – continue being consistent when it comes to daily contact – keep the “I love you’s” coming – continue to share your goals/ideas/dreams with me – remember what better happen in 4 months – keep a smile on my face #1 Don’t? Failure to communicate when…

    Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed

    Finally, the end of the day is here! When you’ve got a lot of stuff on your mind, doesn’t the 8-hour work day seem more like a 28 hour flight sandwiched between two large people with no a/c and a bad itch down there?  Yep, pretty much like torture. So here’s part two of this morning’s surface street and bathroom post, “My Hump Wednesday” and while I’m still emotional and pissed off at this monkey wrench being thrown into the mix,  I probably shouldn’t make any decisions nor should I even be writing about this latest hangover in training but f!ck it, here it is.  Rescue’s actions are making me question my own…

    Five for Five

    So I’ve just received the 2011 edition of the getting to know your friends e-mail and although I’m annoyed that the sender ignored all types of etiquette before sending the message such as cleaning it up first (I really don’t need to see everyone’s comments or all of the Fwd Fwd Fwd Fwd’s) nor did she use the Bcc line (always several people who hit “reply all”).  Still , I actually like doing them and keep telling myself I’ll send one of those to a new hangover just for kicks. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I’d come across someone’s blog who posted something called “Five for Five”;  simple and…

    I hope that you’re the one

    “If not,you are the prototype..” I’ll say it over and over and over again….I LOVE MUSIC. A simple song can invoke so many thoughts, feelings and emotions. Sometimes, feelings you didn’t realize were there or maybe just didn’t know how to express them. Many thanks to Curvy Girl over at http://www.curvygurlchronicles.com for reminding me that “words, tempos and images” are so powerful, especially through a song. I don’t know what she may be going through to have posted this, but the song along with this message. Wow. I’m feeling it. Curvy Girl posted this video of “The Prototype” on her blog and as soon as I heard it, fell in…

    Steak and BJ Day!

    What I just received moments ago was from a non-reader, USBC! He would surely disown me as a friend if he found what I’d wrote about him. Still, I say over and over again, this man is a riot. I gotta give a shout out to Caleb (thank you for the laugh!) Over @ calebshreves.blogspot.com because he commented to my rant last night but I didn’t know this was actually a day MEN want WOMEN to recognize. February 15th is Steak, Blow Job and Shut the F@*k Up Day! Here is how USBC (newbies need to scroll back a few posts to figure out this acronym) feels about yesterday…. Every…
