This is how it was when I woke up this morning…
I have been out every night this week and tonight will be no exception. As I mentioned in my last post, Monday night was a board meeting for my hockey club and Tuesday was track practice. Wednesday was a different board meeting – one for my community association (somehow I was elected as co-VP) – and the most exciting part of that meeting was this:
Last night was a date. I have actually been on a number of dates recently…all first dates. I have not felt the desire to go on a second date with any of them. Mostly because I just wasn’t feeling the connection I need, but one of them got a special award: Worst First Date. Yeah, he’s a lucky one, eh? The date hadn’t been going all that well anyway, but then he said, and I quote, “Any one who belongs to organized religion is of lower intelligence…those of us who are atheist are so because we have the intelligence to be able to question the notion of some big guy up in the clouds and to say no to drinking the purple Jesus juice”.
Seriously, I can’t make this stuff up. I told him that I didn’t have time for, nor the desire to hang out with, judgmental people who can’t respect different opinions or beliefs and then I walked out.
Last night’s date was…ummm…I don’t know to be honest. Need time to think…which might be an indication in itself that it’s not good. Also, last night, as he walked me to my car, he said, “Well, I’ll just say that I think you’re beautiful and I would really like to see you again, but ball is in your court and I’ll just wait for you to call/text me”. It has been 10 hours and I have not messaged him (I was sleeping for 8 of those hours!!), yet he has already texted me twice.
Tonight I have a date with someone I met very briefly through a friend…he’s super sweet, interesting and very attractive but he is VERY artsy and let me tell you that that is basically my antonym. lol. So we’ll see.
Yesterday was Tempo Thursday…5 miles at 7:30-7:00 min per mile. The second I was done, this was happening:
Just like for humans, you’re left waiting forever…let’s just note here that Abby has strategically placed herself in this location so that she (the lazy dog) can lie down but ALSO has a clear view of the waiting room so she doesn’t miss any of the action going on out there! lol
The vet did his neurological testing and gave us the all clear – her current dosage of meds has her clear of symptoms and we’ll see him again in 7 weeks. It took about 3 minutes. And I was charged $100.
