I have whined so much lately I thought I would share my weekend with you all…
I had a great weekend. Saturday my oldest daughter went to her friend’s house for the day my youngest is at her dads for the weekend so I had alone time with Carl. A rare occasion!
I got up in the morning and went for a hike/walk with Carl.. Then home to shower and get cleaned up hung out with Carl for an hour or so. We then went to a movie, Sherlock Holmes, not the usual movie I would watch but I really enjoyed the movie. Maybe because I was with Carl I don’t know! Before the movie we got a plate of food from our favorite place in the mall. We shared it so we sat and ate then we walked around until it was time to go into the movie. Got some popcorn and went in.
I have had such a good time getting to know Carl. He really is a special guy! He is sweet to me and I love it!
Today Sunday, my daughter and I went down to clean my dads house for him while he was out-of-town, so it would be clean for him when he returned. Did some laundry while we were there too! Then we went by a Wing place, got some buffalo style chicken strips, took it home and pigged out! We laughed and joked around the entire day its was really an enjoyable day with her. I love my girl she is such a special kid. I can’t believe she is 16 already. …
She had some homework to do so I went over to Carl’s and hung out with him. It’s so nice that he is beginning to open up more and tell me about his life. He has been unsure if he should, I guess he has been out with some real insecure women in the past and has not been sure what to expect from me. I feel that life is too short for insecurity and jealousy of someone’s past. His past has made him who he is now and I really enjoy him so that makes me thankful for his past experiences!
It’s hard to imagine that through the 7 months of unstable moods and different energy he has not wavered in seeing me. He accepts me for who I am and I the same with him. I worry when I’m not feeling well that it might be too much for him to take. My swirling bipolar mind and my nonstop talking and rambling on doesn’t seem to bother him. He kind of seems to understand it!
He told me when we started dating that he would wear on me in 6 months and I would get tired of him. Tonight I said, ” wow Carl it has been a really long 6 months, he looked at me perplexed… I said, “remember you said you would wear on me in 6 months but that hasn’t happened yet.” He responded, “yeah well if we spent anymore time together it would happen.” I was surprised and said to him, “why do you think that way?” He says, “I just do.” so I let it be but I hate that he feels badly about himself. He is a great guy! Funny thing is we spend time together every day I’m not sure we could spend more time together… lol
Oh by the way we have dated since September 2010!
In conclusion… I had a great weekend between the time spent with Carl and with my daughter. It was such a fun, simple, relaxing weekend. After the BS with my family it was great to really have a nice couple days.
