four days in '08

i had a date with .....someone i like. let's call him dave.i don't know if it'll develop...blah, blah, blah.

still, it was nice to have someone pay attention to me, open doors, hold my hand, laugh at my silly comments.

today my dogs killed a humongous rat and left it by the back door. personally, i prefer flowers, but i graciously accepted their gift. even if i did have to wrap it up in plastic and dispose.

this is what they mean by "it's the thought that counts".

today is my mom's birthday. she loved chocolate birthday cake and blowing out the candles.

god bless you, mom. rest in peace.

today my new CIO started and he said numerous times how impressed he is with my organizational skills and proactive nature. i think this is going to be a good fit.

i don't know if dave will call again, but in the meantime i'm looking back at my time with him as having finished reading a really good book. does that make sense? i don't need to overthink whether or not anything will come of it, whether or not there will be more dates, hugs, flirting and such. what it was ...was good. and that's enough.

I like the 4-day format.

You're dating? Just remember, we'll all laugh at your silly comments. So don't settle for less that what you want!

What, no picture of the dead rat?

bug, i don't know if i'm dating (present tense), but i have dated. YAY me!

now it's the "wait and see if he calls again" period.

Great attitude to have! Just enjoy whatever happens and whatever comes your way. No expectations, no worries. Just fun. That's the way it should be. (But I'll be here biting my nails for you, lol!)

Good stuff except for the rat. I take that back. I am glad the rat is dead.

I knew your mom was a good woman and well loved by you.... but now I KNOW she had good taste!!
Chocolate cake!!!!!!!
I hope her b-day wasn't too difficult a day for you.

May 2008 be rat free from now on!
