What a great weekend! Lots of shopping, lots of drinks, lots of fun.
As summer is officially here, and I say officially because it made me grin to see how excited Emilee was to be done with school for the year (and after all, isn’t that when summer “officially” starts?), I’m so ready for it, I can’t even tell you. Longs weekends at the pool, bike rides, and last night Em and I kicked it off by hitting up the local ice cream parlor, spending a good hour and a half using sidewalk chalk on our driveway, and of course, the smell of fresh cut grass. Mmmmm …
Our summer schedule with Em’s dad will change a bit, so she’ll be spending every other weekend with him, and every Thursday night as well. This way he and I can share a bit of the greatness that is our kid. Who by the way, informed me last night that she will no longer be dating her current boyfriend, because she wants to be “single and free” this summer.
My kid is six. WTF?
I believe at one time or another, I’ve mentioned I Live, I Date, I Learn. Let’s just say I am learning every day, more and more, that I’m worth a whole helluva lot more than what I’m being offered at the moment. I still stick to the same motto, if a man wants a woman, he’ll pursue. So I see no point in pursuing someone that can like me at one moment and dismiss me the next. And really, why would I want to be with someone that can dismiss someone that easily? Only shows how he’ll be in the future and I know damn well I’m worth more than that. So I let that go, because … well, it’s easy now. I have new eyeballs, you see. Learning to look at things for what they are and not what they could be? Is one of the best things I could do for myself.
And, as Sunshine says, “We all see things in our own ways, don’t we?”
