My Knight-in-Shining-Al

I was supposed to post 2 blogs since I last posted about 'What's His Name'..... lol. I have been feeling really crabby lately... I am blaming weather, mother nature (woman issues), Houston traffic and my mood. So here is the run down of what I've been through since Jan 22nd...

I love school, but it's 45 miles one way! Which means I have to leave 2 hours early to avoid Houston Traffic and end up being late for class. I have been finding it a bit challenging to have a new professor for my Sign Language class. He is extremely advance in his signing and mannerisms. I haven't had a signing class in 2 years and feeling the weakness in my eyes for not keeping my receptive skills up.

My interpreting instructor has been beneficial to me. I being stubborn am still trying to buck the system... However, she did bring up some valid points which have helped me to become more professional. Mostly, stop name dropping, no more designer nail styles or designs, and wear clothes that 1 - fit and 2 - are a solid color.

End of Jan, I started going to see my 'Evil Dictator' aka my personal trainer. I have never worked out for an hour long session which resulted in me having night terrors and leg cramps before. It's all good though. I have been to 3 sessions so far and he is helping me to get use to working out... I even got sick at the last session. We were doing something and I ended up with dry heaves. I guess that's my body's way of saying we were doing too much.

I got my funds together and went shopping... OMFG! Seriously, I had to go clothes shopping... FML! I go to the plus size stores that I know carry my size, have trendy clothing to choose from, and are (Cough, cough) *reasonably* priced. I tried on 24 size pants, that looked baggie and too big for my frame. I on a whim tried on a 22 size, thinking, "Ok, these are not gonna fit what so ever. I'm probably in between sizes right now." I put on the 22's... I freaked... Not only did the 22s go on, but I still had room to spare.

I didn't realize, I'm still at the same weight, but apparently losing fat and gaining muscle. Yay me. I'll have pictures up soon enough. :)

I got a new tattoo of 'Heartless' from the Kingdom Hearts series on my right foot. It's just a basic outline of the design. The only filled in part, is the cross symbol in the center of the heart design. :) Still, I like it.

Oh ya... Dating Bites! WTF happened to the rules of dating?!?! I mean, really!!! I have what I conveniently call a "Z" list or my black book of names... My original "Z" list before I got married was in the 30's range of guys that I had been on a date on and for some reason or another, things just didn't work for us. Only a small handful were real relationships. Since 'What's his name' ghosted me, I have started another "Z" list....

21 guys.....
and counting...

I have only been on 2 actual dates, from this whole list!!! I am like a detective and will find out what guys really are looking for in women and a relationship. Mostly, it's guys that want booty calls or dating without ever turning the relationship into short or long term relationship. [For those outta the dating loop, short term means you are boy/girl friend or partners for about 3 to 6 months; Long term means you are boy/girl friend or partners longer than 6 months.] This boggles my mind... How can you be dating someone without ever making the relationship into some term? I get most guys are busy and don't have time to commit to the rules of a relationship. I get some guys are wanting to be 'Forever Bachelors', without the means to back that lifestyle up. But come on!!! If I have self respect and confidence, what makes a guy think I'm gonna give up my values, for a cruddy one-night-stand??? I mean really...

I have another date coming up this Sunday with a Mexican guy, I am gonna refer to as Padrecito (Father or Priest or Deacon for the non-Spanish speakers). The reason I am naming him Padrecito, is because he cares for his nieces and nephews, like a real Father would. He takes them out to the movies, shopping for clothes or school supplies, giving his siblings some much needed down time. He sounds too good to be true. I'm giving him benefit of the doubt right now, until I start getting red flags that I'm not gonna settle for.

After everything, I am still hopeful my Knight-in-Shining-Aluminum Foil will come...
