I'm still here! Sorry for the little blogging hiatus but I just needed to recharge for a bit. There really wasn't a lot going on for awhile and then September hit and there was lots going on. I did some traveling which was nice (although 5 hours in a car with two kids made me feel compassion for my parents! Sorry Mom and Dad!) There have been a few changes. I have yet another new job as of last week. It was necessary for various reasons. Anyway it's done and things are better.
One of the highlights of the month was the weekend of my high school reunion--there's NO WAY it's been 25 years!! I invited a friend to town to go with me. He arrived Friday night and I didn't get to meet him until late. It was worth the wait. He came downstairs and met me in the parking lot and as soon as we got to the room I was in his arms. We spent the entire weekend together--practically the whole time in bed. We did go to the dinner Saturday night but I wound up blowing off all the other reunion activities. There was something else to blow. ;) It had been quite awhile since I've had a session like that but I so needed it.
It's been a few years since I was in a relationship with someone full-time and I forgot how wonderful it is just to touch someone and be touched. The sex was pretty great--don't get me wrong. Just being held after and lying in his arms as he stroked my back is what makes me smile when I think of that weekend. To look at him, I never would have guessed he was such a cuddler! Even watching football he pulled me down on the sofa and wrapped his arms around me. That quickly led to us jumping back in bed. All in all it was a wonderful weekend and I was delightfully sore on Monday morning.
I'm not sure where this is going since it is a long distance "relationship." The internet and all the technology makes covering the distance a lot more convenient, of course. We call or text or IM every night. We even have certain TV shows that are "ours" that we watch together. The distance isn't too great and I'm hoping to spend some more time with him for my birthday in a few weeks. Could I be seeing the end of my "prowling" days?
Probably not since last night I drunk-texted my ex. WTF is WRONG with me?!?!?!? Can somebody just shoot me, please! My only excuse is that I was lonely. Fortunately as I re-read this morning there was nothing too cringeworthy--nor even suggestive (I know right!). Whew! BUT I don't think I will ever get over my affinity for the Garden State men. There's just something about them.
In other news, I seem to have got my act together on the "Getting In Shape" plan. I've dropped 18 lbs!! Just in time for jean season. :) Only a few more pounds before my goal date.
To my friends in the blogosphere, it's good to be back. Missed yall.
