An Open Apology

The last couple of days I have received a couple emails/calls from my friends asking if I am upset at them because I had not responded to their emails. So, this is an open apology to all my friends that have sent me emails and I have not responded to them. As many of you know (since that seems to be all I can think about lately), I have been a little distracted for more then a month now. On top of being happily distracted by a certain someone, work is keeping me very busy. Things have settled down a little at work, but history tells me that this calmness is only temporary. I promise to be better at responding to emails and calls.

Speaking of distractions: I get to see my girl tonight. We are getting together for dinner tonight and I can't wait to see her. We live about 1.5 hours away from each other, so getting together during the week is not always possible. I know it will be worth the lack of sleep I will get tonight. When I asked her if I could bring anything tonight she said, "Just yourself."

I have discovered this gourmet chocolate place right down the street from my work. Oh.My.God. This chocolate has officially ruined Hershey's Chocolate for me. Susan loves anything sweet and last weekend I picked up some chocolate from this place for her and she said it was the best chocolate she had ever had. So like a good girlfriend, I went today and picked her up some more. I will take some pictures tonight because these chocolates are like little pieces of artwork. They are almost too pretty too eat.

On Monday I went to the Obama office to pick up a yard sign for me and one for Susan. I was a little shocked because they charged $8 per yard sign. I don't mind giving a donation, but $8 seemed a little high for me. My sweet neighbor that lives next to me has a McCain sticker on his car. A few weeks ago he asked about the "guy" I was dating. I had mentioned something to him a few weeks ago about the person I was seeing and I guess he assumed it was a guy. I kind of avoided the question because I really didn't want to go into it with him. Well, last Saturday when I was walking Sophie he knocked on my door to let me know he was going to Omaha to visit his daughter and Susan was the one that opened the door. I am pretty sure he realizes that I am not dating a guy now.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Having been in a semi long distance relationship, I know how treasured those mid week visits can be! I hope you have a great night!

Oh, you discovered Christopher Elbow. That is some yummy chocolate. Pricey, but so good. I like the fleur de sel caramels, and the lavender caramels, and well, all of them, really.

I haven't gotten an Obama sign yet because no one ever drives past my house. I was wondering if they charged at the office.

I'm headed into town tomorrow and one of the errands is to pick up Obama/Biden signs. One of my neighbors has put out the other kind of sign, so I must rebut!

Y'all have fun tonight! LOL! You and "your guy"!!

BTW, I just thought of this. Do you remember when Glenn tried to hook you up with the new guy who moved into the neighborhood? It was right at the time that you were coming out, and he though if he could find you a nice guy, it might help you "stay straight"!!! LOL! Turned out that the new guy was gay!!! I laughed about that so hard!!

NO worries i'm just glad you are HAPPY! As long as he doesn't act like an ass it's a good thing he knows. Nothing to be ashamed of or hide! Hope y'all have a wonderful dinner and keep surprising her with little things - they mean A LOT!

Ha, yeah once I discovered "real" chocolate all Hersheys and other "convenience store" candy was ruined. I guess that's a good thing. Right????
