I will not survive this...

Let me tell you what it is I will not survive....A TEENAGED GIRL!!! OMGOSH!!! She is starting way earlier than I ever did. She won't be 13 until October but I am already wanting to pull my hair out. Good grief...does the attitude just kick in overnight??? I thought I used to be moody. Bloody blazes she can change on a freaking dime. One minute she is sweet as pie...the next minute I may as well be satan. Now if I were the one who was making mistakes...I would accept that. To get pissed at me because she broke something of her own accord that was expensive and get mad at me because I got onto her for not taking care of her stuff? Good grief...it's going to be a loooonnnnnggggg 6 years.

Like I said...I will not survive this...at least not without a lot of vodka. LOL

Gosh it's nice...

To be blogging again!!! I've been such a recluse as of late and just didn't have much to say. Had way too much soul searching to do and figuring crap out. I was still holding on to the delusion that I could remain friends with Darren (who will from here on out be known as what's his face because the mere mention of his name makes me want to throw up). After finding out how two faced he truly is and then putting two and two together about what type of man he is which all I will say is sociopath...the rest I won't post because I don't need the grief it would cause. Those who matter know what I figured out and all are thankful for me and my girls to be away from him.

Anyway...enough of that bs. It's no longer part of my life. My life now is my kids, house, job, friends and Curt. I'll be seeing Curt again on Saturday after a day of me, my girls, JoeyLynne (a friend of mine) and her boys having our pictures taken. Joey and I are doing the "Trash that dress" on Saturday also. It's going to be sooooo fun!!! The kids will get to play in the river at Walla Walla Point Park afterwards so it's going to be a great day all around. The kids get to play and I get to see Curt for dinner.

OH!!! Curt invited me to go see the Tim Mcgraw/Faith Hill concert next Thursday!!! Whee!!! I will go over there after work and head home Friday morning. He has already told me that he will cook me a nice breakfast before I head home. Well...not home but to work. My boss is so sweet!!! He said I can come in around 11'ish and then work a little late to make up the time I'll be missing. This job has been a complete blessing to me and the girls. Speaking of my job...I passed my insurance licensing test!!! I am now the office manager and I got a nice healthy raise among other things. Life is just way good and I'm a truly happy little girl. :)

Happy girl...that is me.

Ready for this? I had a date on Saturday. *gasp* Yes...I know!!! As we all know...dating scares the hell out of me. Do you know how deperately I wanted to cancel the date? I didn't and I'm so very glad I went. It was THE most amazing date I have EVER been on. Let me recap it for you...

He picked me up at 1:30 Saturday afternoon and the minute I saw him I knew I had made the right decision. Not only because he is good looking but the kindness that I saw in his eyes put me completely at ease. He brought gifts he bought in Disneyland for me and my girls, some roses, a daisy plant for my flower garden and some homemade lotions/soaps/lip balms. Talk about a surprise. No guy has ever done that.

The rest of the day was as close to perfection as a day can be. We drove north to Leavenworth and then had lunch at a little drive in called "The Heidleburger". Lunch was great and so was the company. :) From there we headed to Lake Wenatchee. It was an amazingly gorgeous day and very little wind. For Lake Wenatchee...that is a rarity and a very good thing. :) We spent around an hour there just talking and relaxing. After some kid walked up to Curt asking him if he had a belly button we decided to leave and head to the venue. LOL

We went to The Gorge Amphitheater for the John Mayer concert. What a great show. I had never really listened to John Mayer until the concert. I am now going to go out and buy his CD's. LOL Since there were about a bazillion people at the concert we just sat in his car talking and eating until the crowds thinned out so we could make our way back to my place. We finally got to my house around 1:30am. Seeing how he lives 2 1/2 hours away I told him he could stay at my place. No...we did not have s*x. LOL He was a complete gentleman. I have plans to go see Tim McGraw and Faith Hill next week so thankfully we don't have to wait a month before we can see each other again.

He did say something to me during our marathon conversation and that was "Tracey...I will treat you with nothing less than the utmost dignity and respect" OMGOSH!!! Where has this man been hiding??? In the past 5 years no man has ever treated me the way he did in one 12 hour period. I can't even begin to share all that he said but suffice it to say...any man I've dated in the last 5 years cannot even begin to compare to Curt. In no way could they even come close.

Can you believe it? I found a good man!!! I'm still sticking to the 6 month clause but aside from that...I'm really liking this man. I'll keep him around for awhile.
