Had a pretty normal week this week, up and down, but mostly great. A lot of laughter and smiling and spending time with friends, which always makes me feel…good. Family dinner last night was a blast, Miss N actually came over and brought the adorable Einstein with her, whom I hadn’t seen in at least 6-ish months. Gizmo had a blast….Belle was not so impressed.
I went out on a date with a great guy on Saturday night (apparently this was the weekend for dates as the basement dweller went out on a date last night too..). We had tried to get together the weekend before but schedules got in the way. He made reservations at the Lebanese Taverna in McLean and the idea was that we would meet at the bar first. I got there a tad early..for some reason I always overestimate the amount of time it takes to get to McLean…and walked in to sit at the bar.
As I walked through this guy jumped up from his seat and exclaimed “Linda?” to which i replied “No. I’m really sorry” heh…poor booger, both in the same boat i guess. I sat at the bar and ordered an Ale and got my phone out to send Miss M a text to tell her about the Linda guy. Halfway through my text I realized that someone had sat next to me and so I finished up the silliness and turned around to check…of course it was him
3 hours later we managed to be the last table in the restaurant and decided that it might be a good idea to skedaddle. My gentleman date then was kind enough to walk me to my car and wish me a safe ride home, not before telling me that he had a great time and would like to see me again. Awww…so i guess i realized that dating can be fun. I also realized that i do want to see GD again…he is fun to be around and I really enjoyed myself, which I guess is the point
I know that I don’t have to be the one that’s always giving and getting next to nothing in return. Seven years is long enough for that. I actually deserve more.
