This has been a very interesting weekend. Some very good things happened and then I had some pretty stressful moments. As she always is, Susan is wonderful. The closer we get the more I realize that I still have some work to do on myself. Laura was my first serious girlfriend and I think of how when we first stated dating I had none of the baggage I currently have. It's a shame that I gave up so much of who I was for someone that would never appreciate me. But I am lucky because I have found this amazing woman that loves me despite all my baggage.

When I got home I had an email from Susan saying that by taking things slow and steady we are building a stronger foundation for our future together. I like how she used the word "steady". I have such a smart and wise girlfriend.

I would also like to say a special thank you to MJ who talked me out of stopping and buying a pack of cigarettes on the way home. Calling MJ today was a huge step for me because it's really hard for me to say I need some help. I am going to share a story in the next couple of days about how I have always had a hard time asking for help. I am lucky to have you as a friend MJ.

I had planned on sharing the winner of my little contest today, but I have had a hard time making a decision. I wish I could give to each charity, but since I can't I will need a few more days to think about which one I will chose. I promise I have not forgotten.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Our next President was in town yesterday and I got caught in traffic while going to see Susan. I never saw Obama, but just the thought that I was stuck in traffic because he was in town was very exciting.

Someone is used to car rides now:
As long as she has her sleeping bag next to her she is fine in the car.

Look what is back:
Can I tell you how happy this makes my heart. (and yes Susan thought I was a little weird for taking this picture.)

I am glad you had a great weekend. If you would like I could submit another charity that could use some funds that could possibly wipe cancer off the face of the world.

My other KC blogger friend was at the rally! She was one of the reasons you were held up in traffic!

I love McRibs, too. And I can't believe Audra has never had one! That's .... sad!

Stacy loves the McRib also! He was just grumbling because it is so much smaller LOL
