simplicity

Just a few random updates and observations as of late...

Side walks are extremely icy this time of year. Especially on a bicycle. The thing slid right out from under me today, thus I have a nice bruise on my left hip and a slightly stiff back.

I have a serious aversion to having hair anywhere on my body, except my head. I wax and pluck everything except my eyebrows, but I simply have too few of those already. It's a good thing I don't grow hair on my legs or I'd be a wreck. You don't know how much time I pass by plucking and waxing - definitely border line OCD. On the bright side, it keeps me inside and not out fluttering into trouble quite as often.

In October, with the help of some friends, I moved out of the Addams family home so that I wouldn't end up in jail as a victim of circumstance. I find my new home environment extremely peaceful even though life continues to fall down around me. April has even come over just to sit and chat; which she hasn't done at my home since I moved to Fort Wayne over 3 years ago.

My foot that I broke wayyy back in September via skateboarding is finally on the mend, I do believe. I quit wearing my big honking boot last weekend after purchasing a new pair of sneakers (bargain price of $9 - go me!). I can nearly walk without a limp as long as my other knee isn't out of place, as it sometimes tends to do. I'm excited for softball this Spring, even though I anticipate having to wear my knee brace along with an ankle brace this year. Getting old is rough. And NO - that is NOT an indication that I should be slowing down. Don't hold your breath on that one!

April and I stumbled upon a fine artist of hula hoops, so until I'm back into full force on the mobilty avenue, I'll be squiggling around with a large plastic ring twirling about. Can't wait!

I believe I'm suffering from withdrawal on the lack of audial pleasure that my ears have gone through in recent months. While I have stumbled across some new talent and had the pleasure of hearing some old favorites now and again, it seems far too few in between exaggeratigly long dry spells. The weather needs to break so I can pick up the pace!

The romance front remains ever dismal. I was yelled at last week for being honest about a friends with benefits situation to guy that I've been disgustedly in love with for months but haven't seen since July. Pathetically enough, I've turned down many dates and random offers as I sat waiting for him while he fills my head with empty promises - but only when he's not seeing someone else. He's on his 4th girlfriend in 6 months, yet I'm the gooney for finally giving in to the call of nature and aquiring a steady buddy and having the balls to be honest about it? Ummm, no. Buh-bye. Mind fucking session = over with. I'm not here to stroke someone's ego while my own becomes crushed day by day. I had too little to begin with.

Yeah, I still have several calling and texting me, but I've gotta be selfish and focus on my life for a little while. I've got a lot going on.

I still have not re-instated my drivers license since losing it in August. I'm weighing the pro's and con's continually day by day, and thus far it has made more sense to forgo the exorbitant cost that it will require of me.

Hmmm, I seem to have written more than I had planned tonight. Later this week I want to write a "bucket list" for this year ... and take a more in depth look at my scattered dating life. It's in serious need of review!

I wish you all the best in 2010. Your blogs are like having met you every day. As much as I would love to sit down in person and talk to you, I appreciate your blogs just the same as they are really helping me get to know you. Life sure is complicated!

Brosreview ~ I start out everyday trying to convince myself of that. The realistic side of me soon takes over (although most others call it a pessimistic side, not a realist side!).

Alex ~ No more complicated than your own. We just have different ways of dealing with our curve balls and walls. I appreciate that you take the time to read my blogs to get to know me :)
