LIFE: Where I hope to date

So I finally did it.  I joined an online dating site.  EHarmony to be exact.  I paid $60! for a months time of THEM trying to find ME someone to date or "connect with".  I hope it's worth it.  I'd like to get a little something for money, a little bang for my buck so to speak.  And by "something" and "little bang", I mean dinner or coffee, you dirty dirty minded people.

I just need to suck it up and put myself out there more.  I am tired of being single but more than that, I am tired of being single, bitching about it but not really doing anything to change it.  I honestly don't think that my Mr. Right is just gonna drop out of the sky into my life, ya know?  So, here we are.  Online dating.  Plus, I kind of want a certain someone, who refuses to look at me as anything more than a FWB, to squirm a little. 

So internets world and anyone who reads this, wish me luck.  Shake dem chicken bones, do a dance or whatever it takes to get me a date!!

LIFE: Where I ramble

I need to blog more.  Not that anyone reads it but sometimes, it's a good outlet for thoughts and feelings I don't need the entire world of Facebook or something knowing.  The few people I know that read me from time to time are OK but practically my entire family and one person in particular that I need to sort of vent about?  Not so much.


Not much has gone on since my last post.  We have planned 2 trips though.  We are Guadalupe River bound for the 4th of July!  I cannot wait to plop my big bootie down in my tube and float the day away.  One hand on my tube and the other on cans of Bud Light!  Come on July:

Our second trip?  GULF SHORES/ORANGE BEACH ALABAMA!!  The pisser of course, is A.) it's not until October and B.) the damn oil catastrophe.  I am praying hard that they can get it covered/closed very soon so they can start the process of getting my precious Gulf's water cleaned up. 

On the personal front?  Same old thing.  Still looking for Mr. Right and am baffled over Mr. Right Now.  He's confusing me and I'm not sure how much longer I can deal with it.  I have decided that having a Mr. Right Now is completely overrated.  Most of the time, I am 100% OK with being single but then those moments, the ones that make it glaringly and painfully obvious that you are single, happen.  Like 3 different cousins getting engaged/married and getting the info via a surprise invitation in the mail and status & relationship changes on freaking Facebook.  I guess I'm going to have to really kick it up a notch.

What else?  I'm trying like heck to drop weight and it sucks and it's struggle but right now?  It's working.  Since the beginning of April, I am down like, 13 pounds or something.  All the walking and all the volleyball is finally starting to pay off.  It also helps that I have a new WW leader that totally gets me and we had a Come To Jesus type talk and it helped immensely.  She is my personal Jillian (from The Biggest Loser) minus all the sadistic workouts.  I am 11 pounds from a HUGE personal goal I have and I need it to happen.  So wish me luck whoever might see this!! 

OK internets, until then...
