New things a happenin'

Since things ended with the Army man (really, thinking about it doesn't make me cry anymore... I may possibly even be better off. I mean really? I can't even have a movie style twirly hug with the man without getting charged by a ram. Must have been some foreshadowing for our relationship... ah hem... *trails off.....*)

Anyway... Since things ended with army man, there was pilot man. Pilot man promised a lot of things and painted a very pretty picture of a very pretty white fence, handed to me on a silver platter. Everything I wanted, wrapped up in a pretty package. Trips around the world, amazing dates, an amazing life. A life that he had already built and a life I could just walk into. Eventually it became very apparent that his pretty words were no more than that... pretty words.

It became very apparent when he told me I should keep dating other people.



If you really wanted to be with me, you wouldn't tell me to keep dating other people. Seriously? Whatever...

Typical pilot. You and your pretty words can continue to do whatever you do best... but I probably won't be waiting around.

On that note... I said to myself, "Self, how are you going to meet other people if you are playing with kids all day? Most of the kids in your center belong to married parents, and you met the one single father you fed you pretty words and lies."

Answer? The internets.

A friend of mine may or may not have met her fiance through eHarmony, so I decided to give it a shot. Those dates seem to be going pretty well... Nothing to exciting to report yet. No fluffy butterflies floating around my tummy. No one is giving me the insane "I have to be with this person" feeling... So we'll wait and see. It's still early in the game, and I'm sure more exciting things will come.

I did have a date take me on a carriage ride, however. *yay me!*

That was actually very romantic. Probably the closest to woo that I have been in a very long time. And the guy was super sweet to boot.

What else...

I have kind of become a model for an amazing group known as the SaltCity Bombers. I am so excited to become part of this project! Anyone that reads should come to our events and support us as much as possible. Most of what the group does is nonprofit, for charity work... Promotion of various causes and diseases and promotion of small business. Amazing people doing amazing work. I am very happy with the concept, and can't think of anything better to be a part of.

Finally, all that money spent on modeling classes and learning how to do make up pays off!! I love the entire idea.

I seem to have a problem doing something I love if I'm forced to do it... If I have to write, I would rather do it for fun than be forced to do it. If I have to do anything to let my creative side out, I would rather do it willingly (and for a good cause) than have my arm twisted to do it.

Just sayin....

This Bombers thing is going to rock. :)
