Where does all my time go?  I've never considered myself a busy person.  I definitely consider myself to be social, but not one of those people who run around all the time saying they're so busy.  It seems that without my knowing it I have now become that person!  Not permanently, but life is pretty chaotic right now.  

What's been going on?  Glad you asked!

For one the hubs finally had surgery on his spine.  Much needed relief after two accidents that occurred last year!  He's doing well, but can't drive and has to be very careful during the healing process.  Send all your good energy his way :)

Then we thought, let's pile on some extra stress!  Spinal surgery is kind of a big deal, but Mr. G and I decided to finally start the process of buying a house.  That makes sense right?  Big decisions should always be made while on serious painkillers!  


During all this I baked TWO HUNDRED cupcakes for my friend's wedding!  All in one evening with two Kitchen Aids, a double oven and my mad skillz.

Lastly, my new job... well thanks to my employer I've been volunteering with the California Assembly Democrats.  Who the hell would have thought?!  Certainly not me, but I'm a team player.  It even says so on my business card.  Just the one though, I don't want that getting all over the place. ;)

That basically sums up the last couple months.  I want so badly to be a better blogger because this site has always been like a mix of a scrapbook and planner for me.  Right now we've got some serious holes in my story and I'm going to my best to fix that!  

Is it too early for resolutions?  

{Game Over}

I know that this is in no way an original thought, but there comes a point (often more than once) where us single girls want to cut the crap. End the game playing. Stop the analyzing. Be it in your head or for endless hours with your girl friends. You want to just be with that person as you really are.

I myself have recently reached that point. Maybe its the guy or maybe its the many weddings on the horizon or my age? Who knows, but I often find myself wondering what would happen if I just blurted out what I was REALLY thinking. * gasp *

I want to be with you. I want to spend time with you. I don’t want to wait three days. I want to hang out three days in a row! I don’t want to plan or impress. I just want to be. I want to text you as soon as you pop in to my head. I don’t want to worry that its too often or too soon. I want to see your sleepy face first thing in the morning and right after work still in your suit. I want to just be.

At the same time, I know that this is earned. It doesn’t usually just happen. You have to go through the awkward moments and be patient. When you get to the other side you can laugh about your beginnings and appreciate the comfortableness you have now.

I’m trying hard not to rush.

{Roller Coaster}

I have always been a girl that moves VERY slowly when it comes to boys and dating. Originally I chalked it up to youth and fear of the unknown. At 27 I don’t think I can blame it on that any longer.

What’s my point you wonder? Things with Mailman has been progressing at a snail’s pace. The flirting has been going on almost 3 months. For me it’s getting to the point where even I am feeling antsy!

There are days where I’m thrilled to see him. The bright spot of my day. Conversation flows easily and I really enjoy myself. I carry this goofy post-mailman smile for the rest of the day.

Then there are days like today when I feel completely let down. I’m irritated that we haven’t taken things further. That he hasn’t asked me out. At this point I’m more confident that he is interested. It’s obvious to my coworkers or so they say. I’m grumpy the remainder of the day and I want to go home to a big bowl of pity ice cream.

UGH! I’m tired of riding this roller coaster. I just want to be able to get on my phone and blast all over Tumblr and twitter and text that he finally asked me out.

Good things come to those who wait right?
