This is the first time I’ve done this. In fact, I’m literally poaching the idea from here, Maura’s little blog that I’ve started to follow. I’m going to try and keep my commitment to do this weekly. So let’s begin!
Today I’m grateful for:
- FilmGuy’s foresight to celebrate my bday with such a fun night a week early. We went to see Kid Rock and it we had a blast. Good show, good company even though it was a Tuesday night! Also, such good foresight as he was unexpectedly called away to work outta town this week and therefore is gone fore two weeks instead of one. So I’m glad we had the chance to celebrate.
- that for the first time since…well…ever…I was able to run 4km non-stop which includes a “run”?, “jog”? around Lost Lagoon. It was a slow go, but I made it! And for the most part it felt great!
- a four day weekend, originally planned for a trip to Whistler with FilmGuy, but since he’s gone this week, I have more time to organize the apartment and located the shelves and purge the clutter…well as much as I can 🙂 Maybe I’ll even dust! Just grateful for an apartment and food in the fridge (well there will be once I hit up the market).
so my man and I chatted about the camping situation and my POV.
the mature thing to do was for me to go camping. so I said I would go camping, as long as he and I get time away from all these crazy people who can’t do anything without his “ex”. Okay. good compromise.
two days later. he cancelled camping. *thunk* [my jaw hit the floor].
I didn’t get any credit for the cancellation, but I did keep asking during our convo last Wednesday , “why are we going with these people if we don’t like all of them?”
the ultimate reason for cancellation? to paraphrase – it’s the quality of people who you surround yourself with at a campfire, rather than the quantity of people at the campfire. so. no camping. his reason for others – his new contract job could impede on that weekend and therefore is unable to commit to planning/going camping. which is true too. the possibility is there.
I don’t care why, how, who for the cancellation. I’m just glad we aren’t going. It’s been a crazy busy summer of late and every weekend there is something going on until Mid September. FUN but exhausting at the same time.
In the mean time, I do have to figure out a way that I don’t want to throw up every time his ex’s name is mentioned or throw inanimate objects at her head when she comes over to pick up the dog.
one year ago today FilmGuy and I met.
it has been a crazy year of ups and downs in our personal lives and lets face it, making our relationship work, considering we both got laid off and we moved in together only after three or so months of dating, life has been full of surprises. not to mention my encounters with the utmost negative people in the whole wide world [I don’t want to go into it again unfortunately because those peeps still find my blog interesting I think still….and I don’t think I have the post anymore, nonetheless they are no longer present in my world].
Overall, this past year has been absolutely fantastic. all the moments of doubts of who i live with are so small in comparison to the laughter I have everyday. Everyday. How many people can say they laugh everyday and smile everyday? It is finally great to be apart of such an elite group.
I hope everyone takes the opportunity this month to smile for no reason.
As the month of May continues and I head into my 31st birthday with better friends and the love of my life, I honestly can say that I’m surrounded by great people and that even though my realistic slant of the world is still in view, they still stand by me and support me and are there fore me no matter what. That, is true friendship and true love.
In the meantime I’ll work on my grammer and capitalization, but quite frankly I need to go to bed so I can get up early and tackle a new week.
Here’s wishing everyone some love in their life and to be thankful for that someone who makes you laugh, makes you cry and makes you want to punch him in the gut every once in awhile. I find it comforting, to a degree, to have someone in my life that evokes such emotion from me.
