A Few Things Have Happened

Good morning, Kittens!

So, Monday at Pottery Class was good. I made a large, shallow fruit bowl like thing. I think it will be pretty stunning if it turns out (meaning, I don't screw it up at some point). I left class earl because I was sooooooo tired (after sleeping poorly Sunday night).

Tuesday, I struggled through work. The day seemed to drag on and on and on and on and on. But, eventually, it was Go Home Time. And I arranged to meet M in Downtown Silver Spring. We walked back to my place, talked, caught up, had a good time. I made dinner - Red Curry Sweet Potato and Black Bean Stew over red and black rice. It was pretty tasty. Then, we watched the best worst movie (possibly) ever, Burlesque and ate Haagen-Daaz. After the movie, we went to bed ... and didn't get much sleep (if you know what I mean *wink wink nudge nudge*).

It was great to see him again. And, I realized how good being with him makes me feel ... It helped me put my wacky dating life into perspective. Why do I bother to go out with guys who seem to try to make me feel bad, rather than be supportive? I put up with a lot of crap, and I need to stop doing that. If you can't be bothered to learn my cat's name because "you don't like pets," well, I can't be bothered to go out with you. Even if M and I don't work out in the long-term (or the short-term, for that matter), I liked being reminded that there are guys out there with whom I just click. Of course, I am hoping that something more will eventually happen with M (once he moves back to the area). That would be good.

On Wednesday, I did laundry.

And, yesterday, there was a shit-ton of work drama involving my contract. It was all resolved, but it was stressful while it was happening. When I got home, i ran 4.5 miles. I had originally planned to run 5, but it got dark more quickly than I had anticipated.

Today, after work, I am meeting a friend for happy hour at Bar Dupont. And i have no other plans for the weekend, other than grocery shopping, ironing, cleaning, pottery studio, and watching episodes 3 -5 of "Downton Abbey."

Have a great day and fabulous weekend!


  1. Yes - no more dating guys who try to make you feel bad. Hold out for the supportive letters of the alphabet!

  2. Crossing my fingers for you and M! Good resolutions, too.
