Feeling Blessed

This is where I wish I was. I love camping and it's been almost 2 years since I have been able to go. I really wanted to go last summer, but I was told that it probably was not a good idea to go by myself. But now that I am thinking about it, there really isn't a good reason why I can't go by myself. Where I do go camping is a very safe place and whenever I have gone camping I always feel safe there. I have used most of my storage in the apartment for my camping gear. Not only is camping great because you are out there in nature, but it doesn't cost a lot of money. Yea, I think it's time for me to go camping again.

When I left work I had planned on going back in for a few hours, but the minute I left I realized how tired I really am. It is so hard for me to come home on the weekends and just relax and not think or worry about work. This is the first time that I have had a job where I really don't mind working extra hours or working the weekends,. As crazy as my life has been this past year, I am thankful that my job has provided an anchor for me.

There is a very sweet guy that Sophie and I often times talk to when we go on our walks. He feeds the stray cats and I can totally understand why he does that. Well, tonight as we were walking he came out and talked with us and he was acting all nervous. He then asked if I would like to get dinner sometime. He was so cute when he was asking because he was so nervous. I told him that I was seeing someone (that's easier then telling someone I barely know that I am gay), but said we could certainly be friends. If I was not gay I would definitely go out with him.

Well, it's a holiday weekend, all my bills are paid and I have extra money in my pocket...I am really feeling blessed tonight.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I would, of course, encourage you to give him a try. What's the worst that could happen?

Yay for feeling blessed!

Why not go camping with a friend? I wouldn't go by myself but that is just me. Do what makes you feel comfortable and happiest!
