Great day in SoCal

It was a really nice day today – I even left for work a little late so I could stay and enjoy the morning outside with the dogs. They are really such hams these days, so happy and always ready to play. I took a few extra breaks at work today to go out and enjoy the sunshine. Tonight is comfortable and cloudless. I took a long swim after I got home and just floated around while the dogs played. All-in-all not a bad day.

I’m really looking forward to this weekend. My friend comes in to town Friday night and is going to spend the whole weekend here. Unfortunately that means I need to pick up the pace on cleaning up the house, but I think I can get it done in time. Not sure exactly what we’re going to do yet but I have a couple of ideas that should be pretty fun.

“Gettin’ healthy”

I have pretty much conceded the fact that she’s not even interested in coming back so I’m moving forward. I’m not even going to bother calling her on the weekends because she’s always out with “friends” living the social life.

It was pretty much a normal Saturday, for the most part. Gave myself a haircut and then I went to the bank, been trying to for a week now but haven’t had the time until today. Then I went to Barger Harley where I dropped off a backpack for a ride they are going on next weekend to give them to some foster kids. I have a friend coming into town next weekend so I won’t be able to go unfortunately, otherwise I’d definitely go. Hopefully I’ll be able to go on the next one.

While I was there I asked around for a reputable tattoo artist because I’m getting two new tattoos soon. One is going to be a tribal dolphin – because dolphins are free, smart, and have a great sense of humor. Tribal because of integrity and tradition. The other is a flaming skull with the words “Vitam ama quia mors sequitur” below it. Here’s a picture of what I want. I’m going to put it on the inside of my right forearm. I’m going to get the flames in color which will hopefully look pretty nifty. The text is in Latin and the meaning is below the image:

Love life because death follows

Love life because death follows

After that I started, finally, cleaning up the mass destruction that she left when she moved out. I’m about halfway done with it but it shouldn’t take too much longer to finish. Then I practiced on my guitar a little bit and now I’m sitting here blasting the metal channel on cable and drinking “dead lady” a beer. I don’t think the dogs are too happy about how loud the music is…. I’m probably going to practice on the guitar again later then do some work that I need to get done this weekend. Tomorrow I’m going to drive to La Jolla with the dogs – they love to go for rides and I love the houses. Maybe I’ll stop and get lunch somewhere and buy them a burger or something. Make it special for them since I haven’t been able to spend very much time with them.

It’s probably a good thing she left when she did otherwise she would have definitely left after how many hours I’ve been working this week. It’s a good thing for me tho, because it keeps my focus off of her and on something else.

The woman of my dreams

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:12 pm

About four and a half years ago the most important woman in my life found me on Friendster. I was looking for her but she managed to find me, and captivated me with a simple phrase – something to the effect of “I found your profile so funny, I think a little pee came out”. Magic. I still remember that day when I received the message from her. I was showing everyone at work.

We had a few days of exchanging emails before she asked me for my phone number and asked me out on a date. We ended up on a freight train romance that no one could stop. People tried, but no one succeeded. I blogged proudly of my new romance, boasted about my son, we took road trips every weekend – just pointed ourselves in a direction and drove until we decided to turn around. Flowers, little gifts, and lots of attention was the norm.

Somewhere along the way “the norm” became watching tv, a constant flow of home projects, and me working long hours. The bills owned us so we never went anywhere anymore, and we had moved to California leaving our families behind so there was no easy solution for babysitting. Needless to say, the romance had vanished.

Now I sit here alone in the house with my two dogs. A house with termites and a few big half finished projects, and with scattered debris from when she moved out. I don’t even have the motivation to clean it up. Why didn’t I treat my Ms. Wow better? Why did I end up taking her for granted?
