So as promised, here's the latest and greatest. I promise I'm REALLY going to try and remember to post more often. This can't be part of my healing process if I never remember to do it.
I called it off with Furniture Guy. A little over a month ago. He was pretty hurt, but I warned him from the start that it was all faster than I was ready for. It was just too much, too soon, and my feelings were only ever luke warm. So that's that.
I met Officer A-hole at the beginning of the month, a few days after C.'s first birthday (aw!). Things were REALLY good there. I mean, it was weird. We had a scary amount of things in common, including our birthday. On our first day we went to the movies and then to the beach and talked for hours. We talked for hours all the time actually...on the phone, in person, through text, etc. It was nice. He really convinced me to let my guard down, asked me to be his girlfriend, to come to church with him and meet his daughter, and then BAM. I sleep over, we have a night of fairly ok sex, and then he's telling me that he needs time to just be himself without dating someone. Um, excuse me?? First of all, I don't have sex with just anyone. Plus he was the first person I'd been with since A. and I split. The whole thing was just...weird. So we tried staying friends. He had shoulder surgery on Monday and I brought him the gift basket I had planned on giving him while we were dating, nothing big, just some little inside things that I knew would cheer him up, and a lasagna since I knew he wouldn't be cooking much. So he writes me telling me what a perfect catch I am, and how he hopes that I'll still be single by the time he's ready to date again, blah blah blah. This was Tuesday. Thursday night he texts me saying that he can't talk to me anymore because he's getting back with his ex-girlfriend that he broke up with about a month before me. Seriously, WTF. He turned into a major jerk and liar and I totally didn't see that coming. Welcome to the world of Dating, S. I definitely won't be so quick to let someone into my life and heart so fast. Screw that.
Things are coming along school wise. I have talked with the counselors, and I go in on Monday to take a placement exam, then back again on the 10th to pick out my courses. Class starts January 16th and I am STOKED to get this chapter of my life started. If I've failed to mention it before, I'm using my G.I. Bill to go back to school for my Elementary Education Degree. I should have it done in 3 years and I'm really excited to get started. School was the reason I moved home in the first place bc of the divorce, so it's nice to finally get that going.
There's been some slight drama with A., but most of it just continues to affirm my belief in the divorce and let's me know that this is absolutely what's right for everyone involved. Some of it makes me laugh, some of it makes me angry, but whatever. The faster we get it done and over with the better. =)
So as of right now, I don't have even any prospects of anyone who is datable and I'm ok with that. I refuse to settle for anything less than I deserve, and that's just what I'm going to keep doing. =)
Phillies are up by one on the top of the 5th, so yay for that. Let's hold them there, and then my birds against Atlanta tomorrow. Prime potential for a great sports win. I hope my teams pull through for me. I could certainly use it.
I believe those are the biggest topics of the update. I'll definitely keep you posted.
Until next time,
