So how is everyone doing this summer? Mine isn’t quiet going the way I want. I know it’s going way too fast. I started a new job, well sort of, same company different department. The new job has my life concentrating more on work than me with overtime, although this week I’m trying to make the entire week about me. What can I say I’m selfish? I put in a lot of overtime lately for them, so this week I hit the gym, a place I haven’t been much lately. I also arranged a couple of dates and am trying to move on with things. I have a little weekday fun in Indy planned to celebrate someone I loves birthday and I have Friday and Saturday to get in a little house work and friend and family time. It just doesn’t seem fair to me that as adults we don’t get “paid” summer breaks. If we could get a guy to run for office that would support that; I would so vote for him. The elections coming up in the next year should prove interesting. I really don’t think I can think of one person running for any office that is really worth a damn, but that is my own personal opinion. We need someone in there that will stop all the bullshit and none sense. I mean our government is suppose to be smart and maybe they are at padding their own wallet, but not so much at running things and I mean that on both the republican and democratic parties both. You can equally be angry at me. I haven’t seen much that should make us proud in the way of government. I do still believe in America as being the best although I have a friend who so wants to go to England to live. I really wish him luck with that. The grass is always greener on the other side till you get there and figure out you’re standing in a pile of manure. Why yes I am blunt. Glad you noticed. My summer has been a wave of emotions, some really good, some really bad. It’s been like a little mini soap opera with betrayal and love and intrigue all rolled into one. Not the way I like things. I like them quiet and drama free. I’ve also come to the realization that I am going to be me no matter what even if the men I choose to date can’t accept that. It’s not in my nature to play games. I do things people find odd but I do not play games. I feel if you’re going to date someone you have to make yourself available and give a little time so that you get to know them. Men that I’ve known seem to want that woman that plays the I’ve got other plans today game and then sits at home and does nothing because she wants to look mysterious to him. I’m not that way. I’m not the damsel in distress, and I’m not the girl who’s going to cower in fear of being alone or forging it on my own. Do I like being alone, no I don’t. I want a partner, but I want someone who wants honesty. I want someone who is honest with themselves and I sure as hell don’t want someone who’s judging me all the time. I recently saw someone who I believe thought I wasn’t religiously good enough which is funny considering I think they need to check their own back yard. I may not walk a religious chalk line but I am religious. I do believe in God and I believe the he talks to me and loves me. My life hasn’t been easy but I realize there are others who’ve had it harder and I don’t believe that I’m a terrible person for wanting a few comforts and pleasures in life either. Either way summer is starting to come to a finally and I’m hoping to have at least or attend at least one cook out this summer. I love grilled foods, especially burgers and I haven’t had a single one yet this summer. It just seems a shame to me. You won’t hear me complain about the hot weather either. I much prefer the fire of summer to the ice of winter any day and there is just something about the sweat and heat that makes me feel alive and energized. Well I hope everyone else is having a great summer and I hope you’re having fun in the warmth and sun. It won’t be long until we are complaining about winter again.
