Where O Where Is My Prince Charming???

Ok, where the hell is my Prince Charming??? I have been waiting patiently to meet "the one." However, I met "the wrong one" and subsequently have dated all of his brothers and cousins, you know, the entire Wrong family.

Here I am thinking that I have paid my dues and that it's finally time for me to meet "the one." I mean after all, I dated someone that beat people up with baseball bats for money and when he wasn't doing that he was using me as a punching bad, I dated someone who cheated on me, I dated someone who abused me (but not too badly, comparatively speaking), I dated another guy that abused me this one was physically and verbally (this one did the most damage), I dated someone who got married while we were dating and failed to tell me because he didn't want me to leave him. I dated another guy who was really nice but annoyed the crap out of me yet I tried to make it work. Then I went out with another guy that just wanted to use me.

Finally, I met a guy that I really clicked with and I really liked, the first one in about 4 years. But do I get to live happily every after? NOOOOOOOO. This guy strung me along and ditched me every time he made plans with me. We went out 3 times in 8 months. The last time he ditched me was via an email and he never bothered to follow up with any kind of call or any other form of apology.

So now I'm feeling like I'm at a crossroads and trying to decide which path to take. Do I keep on trying and taking chances and hopefully meet "the one," or, do I give up on the idealogy of finding "the one" and just start humping every available man or, do I become a lesbian? Honestly, I don't know if one can become a lesbian, it may be something that you are just born to be, but I'm not sure and I'm not looking to debate that issue.

I really don't know what to do. I think for now I am giving up the search and will just let nature take its course. Please be sure to visit me though with my 50 dogs when I'm old and living in a mobile home. In fact, if anyone wants, I'll be happy to save the mobile home space next to my trailer for you!

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Rack Scorned

Once again it's been awhile since my last post. Unfortunately, I don't have anything good or funny to report.

I was sort of dating someone and we had made plans for him to come over to my house this past Friday night. I spent the better part of the week straightening up the house and then the night before I spent 3 hours cleaning, I vacuumed, I steam cleaned and then I vacuumed some more. I also cleaned the toilets and put a bandage on my dog's foot so he wouldn't have to look at the nasty wound on the dog's leg. So I went through all that, only to find an email from the guy on Friday morning telling me he was canceling again. He had also canceled last weekend. Needless to say I was upset. My feelings were hurt and I sent him an email telling him exactly how I felt and what I thought. I don't think that I will be hearing from him again.

Well, I didn't want to waste a clean house, and when I saw a friend of mine pop online I invited him over. He accepted the invitation and dropped everything and came over. We drank mudslides and watched Blalzing Saddles. We had a lot of fun.

The icing on the cake was when one of my friend's dumped me this week as a friend. I was sent a very nasty, mean email basically telling me that I wasn't worth their time anymore as a friend. Now, I am upset over this, but since this has happened numerous times before I'm a little numb to it. It still hurts, but life goes on. I can't please all of the people all of the time, but that doesn't make me a bad person.

I thought that things would finally get better this week with all of those bad things behind me. WRONG AGAIN. I was loading my clothes into the washing machine and all of a sudden the lid came crashing down and landed in my palm. My hand is all swollen and hurts like mad. Oh well.

I think that I would like to crawl back into bed and come back out when it's 2006. 2005 has not been kind to me and I just want the year to be over. Don't get me wrong, not all bad things have happened this year. My nephew was born this year and I'm sure that there are other things, but I can't think of them right now.

I need a pick me up, so, please share with me some positive things that have happened to you this year so that I can share in your joy.

I'm Back

It's been awhile since my last post. I'm sorry about that. I think that it's been too long and that no one will even check my blog anymore. Probably just as well, I don't think that this post will be all that exciting. I'm just not feeling the blog tonight.

Anyway, it's been awhile because first I was on vacation and then I've been crazy busy since I came home. I've been cleaning and trying not to kill my dog who is driving me crazy. I also had a horrific outbreak of hives last night which forced me to take some Benadryl and then pass out.

So, tonight we had a retirement party where I work for this woman who retired today. Now, the first thing that you should know is that no one retires from my company, they work there for many years and then they get new jobs and eventually retire from another company. So, she's like one of the very, very few that is actually retiring.

With that said, you would think they would throw a party or something for her. But no. Her boss came to me and my boss and asked us to help plan the party. What he really meant was, can she and I plan the entire thing, which we did. He was in charge of buying the cake and the decorations. He got the cake. Oh and the budget was $100. This woman has been there 16 years and this is what she got.

So, today at 4 p.m. (the party was at 5) my boss and I are hanging handmade signs and decorations so that this woman had something. A few people showed up, some only came to grab food and then ran out and didn't even wish her well. Oh and the gifts had to come from our own pockets because the company wouldn't buy her anything and we couldn't ask people to contribute to a gift via email. What a mess. Anyway, we managed to pull it off and she was just so happy to have a little gathering and it was fun. I'm just really irritated that we couldn't splurge a little bit and do something nice for this woman.

I'm also pissed off that I was asked to HELP plan this party, yet my boss and I did all the work and we're the ones who felt bad that it wasn't going to be a nice party. But she had a good time and was thrilled to have the gathering and for that I am really glad. Afterall, when all is said and done, it was all about her and what made her last day a little more special and this definitely did.

The Rack of the Party

So, I drove down to NJ on Saturday, with the intent of attanding a party of people from the online dating site. I left Saturday morning at about 9:30am and about 7 hours later, arrived at my hotel. That 7 hours does not take into account the time that I spent with my Aunt when I stopped and had lunch with her. That was all driving. Fortunately, my uncle gave me a shortcut which helped cut out a lot of the traffic on the Garden State.

I get to my hotel around 5:45pm and I am checking in when I get the feeling that someone is staring at me, so I turn to look, and sure enough there's Marty. So he is the first person that I got to meet. He is extremely nice and just as funny in person as he is online and in his blog. Then I met a few other people at the hotel, LisaB was one. She is an absolute doll in person.

I went to the party and it was in a huge bar right on the beach, which was really nice. Everyone recognized me immediately and said that I look just like my pictures. I recognized almost everyone from their pictures. Everyone was really nice and very funny. I had a good time.

Unfortunately, I got sick towards the end of the party and got a ride back to my hotel and didn't get to say good-bye to anyone. I was going to go to brunch with everyone in the morning, but I got really sick (sore throat, headache, fever, body aches) (your sympathy is appreciated) and so I just wanted to go home. Fortunately, it only took 4 hours to get home, but I felt awful about not getting to say good-bye.

So, for those of you party goers that read my blog, I truly enjoyed meeting all of you and I will be happy to share my pictures with you, once I figure out what to do with them. Anyway, I do hope that I get to see you all again!! For those of you that I didn't get to meet, I hope to someday (that's you Ms. Trouble).

I Met Someone!!!

It's been awhile since my last post, but that's because I met someone!! I did. Let me tell you that he is perfect! And by perfect I mean unbelievably hot.

So let me tell you about my new man. He's very attractive, great body, very soft kissable lips. The best part is that he is so quiet. He doesn't argue, he agrees with everything I say. I am so happy and I hope that all of you are happy for me too.

I'm sure that right about now you would really like to see what this guy looks like? Well, he told me I could post a picture of him. So, without further ado, please meet my new man!
