SO…ready for Christmas? I am!
Almost 20 years ago, I was an assistant manager for Papa John’s in Houston. There was a driver there that I really got along with, he was a very nice older guy (only about 15 years older than me). Saw him about 4 years ago at our local neighborhood Valero, said hello, gave him my number, and that was it.
About a month ago, I saw him delivering a pizza to one of my neighbors. I was there with another neighbor and I guess he thought it was a boyfriend or something, so he said hello and left. A week later, he was delivering a package (not pizza) to where I work now. SO twice in one week, I was thinking that it’s fate and I should give him my number which I did. Not to date the man, but to be friends! I never heard from him.
Today, while I was on break outside, he walks up to pick up a package here again. He told me that he had lost my number because of stuff that had happened to him lately. I’m like, okay. So he gets paper and a pen and asks me for my number and address. Well, I’ve known the guy off and on for almost 20 years and he’s always been a stand up guy (and not like he doesn’t know where I live considering he delivers pizza there and saw me) so I gave him my address. My question is…WHY? Hope he doesn’t just show up at my house…I am never ready for unexpected visitors. I don’t want him to buy me anything either. I’m not trying to date him! I think he’s a good man and a decent looking older guy but that’s it. PLUS…I decided for 2014 that I’m not going to date or have sex. Just so I can work on myself and my son this year. So I guess we shall see what happens with this. Since it’s happened twice before, he’ll probably just not call which is fine. I’ll just see him next time he has to come to my office to get something.
I built (with a little help from a friend) a bunk bed on Saturday. OMG, my fingers STILL hurt from that stupid Allen wrench! I took apart my queen bed too. My friend also helped me install a peephole in my front door which makes me VERY happy! I can now see who’s at my door!
Yesterday I took the old bed to my parents garage for when I move to a bigger place with the help of my friend that drives a truck. While putting it in there, I noticed that their entire garage is filled with MY furniture! I need a bigger place to hold it all so I can clear out their garage!
I also baked for 5 hours. I made cookies and attempted to make fudge which I am having to throw away because it was NOT right at all, either turned into candy, was too hard, or wouldn’t harden at all. The kind of cookies I made were:
2. Chocolate Chip
3. Peanut Butter
4. Oatmeal Raisin
5. Chocolate and Peanut Butter
6. Sugar with White Chocolate chips
So when my gay boyfriend calls me and says, “Hey, I’m going to eat with my boyfriend down the street from your house. I want you to meet him.”, I have my hair in a ponytail (unwashed), no bra, and the house is a mess, I let him come over. His boyfriend is the female in their relationship, you can just tell. VERY nice guy though! Looks familiar to me but who knows…I know a lot of people and he didn’t think he had seen me before. I gave them some cookies and the b/f asked if he could take some leftover popcorn, I didn’t mind. They stayed about 10 minutes, Little Man was really happy to see gay b/f too and talked to him non stop for half the time they were there!
I brought the extra cookies to work with me. About half are gone…I don’t want to take any home so I hope they get eaten! Yes, I’m at work all day today. My son was supposed to stay with my Dad this week but my Dad had a fever this morning so I had to send my son to daycare which he was PISSED about! He wouldn’t get out of bed until I threatened to cancel the party tomorrow. That got him moving!
Did I tell you about the party? I am having 10 of his friends over to decorate cookies, color Christmasy pages, decorate stockings, and just dance and sing. I also hired a teenager to help out. The original teenager I asked to help had to cancel but thankfully I have another single parent who has a teen daughter who was more than happy to make $20 for 2 hours of chasing down kids! I’ll have to fill you in on how that went when I come back to work (Thursday if I’m not too crazy busy!).
Anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! and happy every other name for Christmas that you may celebrate. HUGS!
