Friday Quick Takes, on life

— 1 — 

I have fallen from posting on this blog again. I’m not here with this list to make any promises, either.
I just want you to know that I think about it… sometimes… and I think about posts to write… sometimes. Mostly I’m focusing on getting out of debt (student loans!) and checking off some of those things on my 28 by 28 list.

Lent has been going OK for me. I don’t know if I’m more patient or not.
I know I got super frustrated at work earlier this week, and now the coworker that frustrated was geared to is mostly not talking to me. I said ‘God bless you’ after he sneezed yesterday and he said ‘Sure.’ OK…
I have been keeping the meat free Friday fast, but I do that all year.
I get get to Mass on Monday morning. I need to get to confession soon.

This weekend one of my friends is hosting a ‘chat and chew’ cookie exchange. Except we’re not exchanging cookies. We’re just bringing 2 dozen to the nursing home in town and keeping 1 dozen for the party.
She’s setting me up with a guy there…which relates to my next Quick Take.

Tonight is my second date with someone new!
We met last weekend for coffee. It was great. Besides being awkward because we were just meeting, it went great. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m excited.
Tonight should be great, too. At least I hope.
He’s Catholic, and when we were setting the plans for dinner, he said the restaurant has an “extensive seafood selection” or something cute. It just makes me happy that he’s serious about his faith.
I don’t know if we’re going to keep dating or what, but it’s fun to be out there.

My car is going to the repair shop next Friday morning… $160 later I’ll have a new wheel hub bearing or something.
Also, yesterday when I was walking around my car I saw one of my tires was ridiciously low on air. I put the gage on it…. 7 PSI. I’m not joking. 7. They’re supposed to be at 30 or so. 7.
Jeez. No wonder I’ve been getting pretty poor gas mileage. I guess I need to be more diligent about checking them. The rest of the tires were in the low 20s, but 7.

Back to the date.
I’m both nervous and excited. I have no idea what I’m doing.
Before this, I’ve just kind of “fallen into” relationships and never dated. I know that I need to take this slow… but how?
I’ve had a friend tell me to just make it a conscious decision about everything involving the guy. Meaning, don’t text him constantly, don’t think about him constantly, don’t wait for him to text me.
Basically, keep the rest of my life full of things to do.
But I’m just so excited!

Lastly, a skirt update.
I haven’t been doing it like I wanted to. At best, I get 2 skirts a week.
As the weather warms up, I’m going to re-dedicate myself to this “cause,” and even start looking for more skirts. With my car repair bill and other stuff coming up, I can’t afford a wardrobe overhaul right now. Soon, though.
At least when it’s summer, I won’t have to worry about matching my tights to my skirt and boots or whatever.
Speaking of boots. I think this is the summer I’m finally going to buy a pair of cowboy boots. I’ve wanted a pair for a long time. Now’s the time to do it. If the budget works out.
 

Have a great weekend!
God bless.
