Oh My My--I Have Been Absent

I am hanging my head in shame. I have been absent from this blog for more than two years. And I love this blog, and I love my readers! What is wrong with me?

Ok, I have had a job change, precipitated by some bad job juju at the last job. Plus family crises and stress. Plus, still not dating. (But I have great friends and do manage to eke out some fun.)

But that is no excuse for not posting here. That is going to change.

I am going to post regularly and continue the conversation about all things dating and single life.

See you soon!

I Love Basketball Season

Who wants to go to a basketball game? I do, I do! I mainly watch women's college basketball, but I have recently started watching high school Bball again and also pro basketball. I love the sport and can't get enough of it.

There is no pro team in my town, so I watch those games on TV. But I travel some, so I might look for nba tickets in a city that I will be visiting soon. A friend of mine told me she is looking for miami heat tickets for the game in the American Airlines Arena and wondered if I could meet her there. She told me that has tickets for the miami heat and the american airlines arena and also nba tickets. Good to know, but I can't make it. Miami is not on my itinerary. Darn!

Vacay With My Girl Buds--The Good And The Bad

I am so excited--my group of girlfriends from college and I are going on vacation again. We try to go on a group vacation every few years, and we have gone to some amazing places--Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and the beach--many times.

We love to explore new cities and countries, but some of our best vacations have been to the beach to relax.
This year, we are combining the two and are going to Orlando. One of our group lives there now, and the rest of us haven't been to Disney World in years. Yes, we are going to have a grownup vacation at Disney World! The friend who lives in Orlando doesn't have room for all of us to stay at her home, so we are going to stay at one of the Marriott Orlando Hotels in the city. There are several that we can choose from, but that is where the tricky part comes in.

The biggest problem we have traveling together is getting everyone on the same page. Some of us have said we want to stay at one hotel, and others have said they would prefer one of the other Orlando Marriott Hotels.  And it might be hard to get a consensus on some other decisions we need to make as well.

But we know that once we get everything ironed out and reach a compromise, we will have a blast. We always do, and Orlando will not be an exception.We are ready to be active, lounge on the beach, and have a relaxing stay.

On A Timetable To Clean Once Again

I have eight days to whip my place into shape once again. And I have to work and Christmas shop during that time too. Ouch. My niece is moving in with me, and I need to get her room in shape. And the rest of my house. Always a day and chore short! I bought a dirt devil dustbuster tonight and realized it has to be charged for 24 hours! That blows my plan to vaccum up the dog hair tonight. I need to do laundry, clean out her closet and change cat litter tonight. Surely I can get that done tonight. Can't I?

No Right Age To Go Through Menopause

This article says there is no right age to go through menopause, but that the average age is 51. You are not considered to be in menopause until you go 12 consecutive months without a period. It also gives some info as to some risk factors connected to menopause and heart disease, etc.

I have not gone through menopause yet, but I guess it could start at any time. One thing I don't like though is how some of my women friends talk about it all the time. I just can't get into that. It is not my idea of fun to be with a bunch of women talking about menopause and hot flashes. Yuck. But then I never liked hearing women talk about childbirth either. Boring!

Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunction!

Ooh, another embarrassing wardrobe malfunction! And I am not talking about Nancy Grace's supposed wardrobe malfunction on Dancing With The Stars. I have a favorite pair of black slacks--they are Jones of New York and very nice. Slimming and stylish. I wear them all the time and can easily say they are my favorite pair of pants.

Well so obviously so that I realized Friday night there were two holes in my pants, right in both inseams. I was so embarrassed. I don't think anyone noticed, which is great. I had taken them out of the dryer and never notice the holes and put them on to go to a nightclub. I was sititng on a bar stool and thought all of a sudden that my pants felt funny. I went to the restroom and almost died when I saw the holes! I realize that it is a combination of my weighing too much and wearing the pants too much. How awful. I walked very carefully the rest of the night so as not to expose the holes. I would not have been able to get up and dance for anything!

Made me feel really ashamed that I have not lost weight yet. Trying, trying, least I need to try. My mindset is not right yet. But I want to lose weight this month. I want to look pretty again.
