So my dear readers and friends, are you ready to come flog me? After you read this, you just might be!
So I cancelled on my boyfriend for Saturday night because I was pissed at him for doing what his roommates wanted and I really didn’t want to meet them. Yesterday, he and I spoke (via text) and I felt bad for canceling although I had an enjoyable evening at home ordering pizza and watching old movies on tv. So I asked if he could come out thinking he would have to ask permission and I would dump him if I heard those words.
Gay boyfriend (GB) called and asked if he and I could go eat. I told him my boyfriend was coming but before then would be great. So GB came over and we went to our favorite restaurant but they had changed management and the name of the place. We decided to try it out anyway. Same foods, same prices, so it was good. My boyfriend met us up at the restaurant as we had just finished paying and had walked outside. We all chatted and went by my house to grab food for my boyfriend which I had told him I had cooked and he wanted to try. Boyfriend had a piece of my lasagna and a pumpkin brownie and said they were great. We took GB back to his car and chatted more. Then boyfriend and I went to my local pub and had A drink (as in 1). We went to pick up his truck, take my car home, and take his truck out. Then we went and parked at a park and watched a movie on my iPad. Then he and I kissed (bunches), and he went home. He said our living situations weren’t perfect but we will figure things out. GB text me while we were at the bar and asked if I was going to dump him. I immediately hid my phone and replied that I don’t know yet and after I got home last night, chastised him since my boyfriend probably saw that text! Well, Geez, if I decide to break up with him, it shouldn’t be because GB text the wrong thing and my boyfriend saw it!
So yes, my friends, I am still with him. I asked him how he got out last night and he replied that he left them a note that he was going to his girlfriends and walked out. They weren’t home. Nobody text him last night either which was an added plus to him because they are the issue (and yes, him, for even asking them anything). Made me wonder if he said not to bother him or something. So it looks like my bitching to him about it actually helped! I asked him how he got out of basic training when he was young (he put on his FB profile he got out because of emotional issues) and he told me how his cousin died of cancer (she was 9), and that his parents lost their house and had to move, a lot of stuff hit him at the same time. So that explained that and made sense to me. GB actually liked him too, said as long as he doesn’t let his roommates walk all over him, he’s a good guy. I was happy to hear that.
So bitch at me all you want or tell me not to tell you about things with him, I understand. BUT, I will blog on how things are going. I’m happy (for now) and hope to remain that way. I’m not a controlling bitch like his roommates and it seems like he likes that. Yay!
That’s all for now on that. My dad asked me to drive his elderly friend around and that she would pay me. I can’t do that. There are days I don’t feel like I had enough time to get my stuff done plus I could never take money from her since she’s known me my whole life and I am friends with her son! So he wasn’t very happy with me this morning and then sends me a link to a military school for Little Man so I had to explain that military school or boarding school is not an option. He’s not a bad kid, he has his issues but we are working through them.
I had Sparklett’s deliver a water machine to me last week. For $20.00 a month, I can rent the machine and they will deliver three 5 gallon jugs of water plus there’s no contract. It’s awesome!!! I was going through a case of bottled water a week and since my complex won’t recycle, I hated using all that plastic. Now, we all have water whenever we want, cold, fresh, bottled water but out of a machine, plus hot water for cooking or coffee too. The best part is that I don’t have to lift the huge jug up to put it upside down on the machine. It slides into the bottom and I put a lid on it. That’s it! So cool!
I rearranged the furniture again in here because my wonderful neighbor said that I can have her hideaway couch when she gets a new one so I needed space. That’s all I wanted too. I wanted another bed in here so we would have room and wouldn’t be ruining my couch by sleeping on it nightly. And yes, that IS a good way to ruin a couch. So that’s exciting.
I cleaned, I cooked, I am getting into a pattern and I really like it. My friend said her job is hiring part time 3 days a week so I am talking to her about that. It’s not even about the money, it’s about getting out of the house a bit. I want to work, and it’s easier to find a job when you have a job, so only working 3 days a week gives me time to interview at other places, go to any appointments that I or Little Man has, and get everything else done.
Speaking of appointments, Little Man went to the dentist last week. Thank God for Medicaid! He has not one, not two or three, but 7 cavities! Holy shit! So I mention that it’s hereditary and he says “there’s no proof of that” but let me tell you, I had the same exact issues growing up. So he is having surgery this Friday where they will have to cap 4 teeth and fix 3 other cavities. He is now brushing and taking better care of his teeth because I told him unless he wants to go through this all the time, that’s what he has to do. Hopefully at his next checkup in 6 months, he won’t have more BUT if he does, then I’m sticking with the Heredity thing. He doesn’t eat candy, he doesn’t drink soda, plus he brushes like he’s supposed to and flosses? Yeah, it’s all in the family.
It’s already 1:20 in the afternoon? Holy crap, I gotta go! I have errands to run before Little Man gets home! Hugs!
