Status in paradise

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:06 am

It’s been a strange 48 hours. I found out Thursday night that Nickey has a boyfriend – yay, on Thanksgiving Day. Ok, that’s to be expected. After all it’s been since the end of June since she’s lived here. I talked to her on Friday and asked her about it and somehow the conversation turned into us trying to work things out, I’m honestly not sure who started the topic. So we talked for a while and decided to pick up the conversation again in the morning. It was a rough night for me. She called in the morning and said she had been thinking about things all night and that she remembered all of the “bad stuff”. Why is it she always thinks of all the good times we’ve had until I want to really work things out, then it’s all the bad stuff? To sum things up, it sounds like she’s not into working things out after all. What a pit I’m in – she was the one I waited for, the only one I’ve deemed worthy of marrying, the one I was fully expecting to spend the rest of my life with. Meh.

Alright, enough with the heavy stuff. Today was a decent day. I woke up at 10, played with the dogs, then went on the road trip I promised the dogs. First we stopped off at Barger Harley because I needed some new gloves. The one’s I’ve been using are perforated so the rides home after work have been pretty cold lately. After that we started out towards Ojai, the initial destination, but traffic was horrible. Instead we went down towards Malibu on Topanga Canyon and stopped off at a cool store called Hidden Treasures. I’ve mentioned it before in a couple of my posts – it’s kind of a hippy shop with used clothing, incense burning, some bizarre antiquities, and that’s also where I bought my acoustic guitar recently. I bought some incense and then continued on down to Malibu. We drove down toward Santa Monica, explored a few side streets I hadn’t been down before, then headed back home. We stopped off at McDonalds and I bought the pups a burger, which Zoe enjoyed and Loki swallowed whole. I ended up taking a 2 hour nap after that – I had just eaten and I put on golf, what can I say :). When I woke up I decided to tackle one of the projects that had been on my list for a long time. I dumped out the planters in the backyard, refilled them with soil, then planted grass seeds, and covered them in clear plastic – sort of like a greenhouse. The hope is to grow grass in them for the dogs, they used to eat the plants in them anyway so grass would probably be better for them.

So to end off the night I’m watching School of Rock and practicing on the guitar. Now that work will hopefully be slowing down quite a bit I’m going to make it my mission to learn how to play the guitar better. I’ve got two of them, you’d think I’d know how to play something on them….

Unfortunately this is the quality of the post you get from me when I have a lot of free time. I do usually use my blogs as a method of ranting about useless crap, so I guess I’ll have to get back to that again. I’m missing a few important key ingredients though – I need to dine on microwave cheese sandwiches with ketchup, and drink Jack and Coke. That’s when my posts are the most insightful 😉

  1. Ouch… I don’t know… There are certain realities that for me are deal-breakers in respect the whole “working things out” conversations. Once certain lines are crossed in that new relationship, it is a no-go.

    On thing I’ll say though Chris is, you have clearly been balls-to-the-wall busy since all of this went down. I am curious if you’ve sat down and really faced the observations, criticisms, input that you got before and after the break-up. There are things you cannot reclaim, but resolving the cause of that loss isn’t pointless. In fact, you may be doomed to repeat this if you don’t decide who it is you ultimately want to be, and make it happen.

    Just a thought really.
