Last night was a winner on the scale of dates my BF and I have had over the years. My BF is a control freak, well, not exactly...let's say he likes to take control of his life and command the way it runs. It has made for a very successful career and so forth. He believes that we sort of commandeer and steer the course of our lives. In essence, this is pretty much true. I was suffering from depression when I was younger. It took all my effort just to go to work every day and not suffer a panic attack. There was no energy left to promote a career. In effect, I did stymie myself at work. When I went back to work 8 years later, the promotions were pretty much over and done with. I was a very different person. The school of hard knocks had made me tough and resilient. LOL...I am in no way in command of my life. Things happen; I deal with it. As my dear Penny said, I have become an expert at making lemonade out of lemons. My BF is not dealing well with sort of falling from grace at work. It isn't fair and it certainly isn't appropriate after all the expertise he had lended to management. In particular, his supervisor's actions are hurting him to the core. We talked about this before we went out last night. I told him he needed to just move on and get over it. We cannot control the actions of others. Most at work are so supportive and loving....dismiss those that aren't. They simply aren't worth the time and effort. I've learned that art quite well. I believe he has 10 more work days, excluding any sick days he uses up.
So, we went out and totally kicked up our heels at the Days Inn. There was a wedding party. It's always a blast when there are weddings there because the lounge is packed with happy people. We danced the night away. Yes, I love to shake my bootay. I probably look like a fool but I don't care. And, we can walk there. LOL...his new apt. is a bit longer of a walk.
He went to his mom's today. She was cranky yesterday because she is not feeling well at all. She has congestive heart disease, and her legs are so swollen. He's taking her to the doc's this week. They changed her diuretic (water pill) for some reason. It doesn't appear to be working.
Sharing some pics....my batteries were dying so I'm not sure how clear they will be.
Now, you all know I just love pictures of myself...
My BF lighting the fire...there's that circle on the wall again...I do think I'm having some lens problems with my camera...grrrrr He wouldn't let me get a shot of his face until we got home....boo hoo...the batteries were dead.
This was in my journal before from Christmas...
I went to Target today to scout out some furnishings for the family room. I saw so many things I would love to get but have to figure out how much I want to spend. I was so tempted but was a good girl. Then it was off to Wally World for groceries. LOL...I was even tempted at Walmart also.
Have a good Palm Sunday all....4 days and counting until the tornado (Megan) arrives home for Easter break.....
