Date or non-date update

Don't tell anyone I said this until it's confirmed BUT I think it's a date! :-) He asked me if I wanted him to pick me up or meet there [date]. Even though it's totally out of the way I think he should pick me up. ;-)

I'm excited! I thought I would add I forgot how much fun I have talking to him.

Date or non-date?

Is it a date or a non-date? I really have no idea. Ok, so you may be wondering what I am talking about. About a year and a half ago I went on two dates with this guy who I was really excited about. But, he is super busy and was leaving that year to spend a year in a different state for his job. He is back and we got in touch again over facebook. We have been catching up and talking. It's been great. He asked me if I wanted to go to dinner and a movie. [Date] It's this Thursday. Which I'm pretty sure is a [non-date] night. I know his work schedule is crazy and he's always working or on call. I have decided I am not going to dwell on my date or non-date. I am just going to go and have fun and enjoy his company. "Coffee is the non-date date drink of choice. Asking someone to go for drinks, dinner and/or a movie with you clearly constitutes a “date”. Asking someone for coffee, on the other hand, doesn’t. Splitting the bill. That’s another non-date date activity. Allowing a guy to pay for the whole evening, on the other hand, sends the signal that you’re on a real date."

EEEEKKKKKKK I'm going on a date!!!! This will be my first date since Kevin (did I blog about that? We broke up in April. note to self: remove his pictures from the blog!) I will take cash just in case.

I went to check my e-mail and this article caught my attention: Mom Dies at 69, Twins Orphaned.

She had her twins when she was 66 with the help of a fertility clinic. Of course they claim to not have known how old she was. But, I don't know if I buy it. Isn't the main motive of 'most' fertility clinics $$$. It makes me sad when I see or hear of people that are misusing fertility. I understand that for some women they have no desire to adopt. Although I don't really agree with it. We have stricter laws on getting and keeping your drivers licence than we do with using a fertility clinic. Why is it okay for me to go out and have 5 or 6 kids at the same time? Why is it okay to have children after retirement age? I just don't get it.

Official x 4

Some of this is old infomation. I am officially:

  • Going to be a 1st grade teacher!
  • Single!
  • Gave my 2-week notice at my job!
  • Going to see my sister next week!

It's all kind of surreal. I am anxious and excited to be a teacher. At the beginning of this year I was only going to work in a certain school district/or city and for a certain grade. After all I had my other job so I wasn't going to switch jobs unless it was exactly what I wanted.

However, yesterday I gave my 2-week notice. I have been there for almost 11 years. I think applying for the position that I did not get was what really opened my eyes up to the idea of "what am I doing at this place?". I earned my degree and they didn't want to promote me. I dont want to waste anymore time applying for things and "hope" that something works out. So times are a changing. Now I'm going to be working for a school in a city I had never heard of in a grade that I had no 0 experience with.

Depending on how my school year goes will depend on what I will do in the future. Your first few years are a big deal. They make or break you. A lot of teachers only last a few years. If it does not work out (which i think it will) but if i doesn't....than I have looked into getting another bachelors degree in accounting or finance. Or maybe I could be a massage therapists. On TV they say I can make the same money in 3 days that there friends make in 5!!!! I'd sure love to rub my hands on some pimply fat rolls or see an old wrinkly man bum.

Kevin and I broke up. I think after your a certain age you don't put up with things. Did we have fun together? Of course he cracks me up. But I felt like our relationship would never move past where it was. We still talk. And I think I'm done with the 40+ men. I think my age range should always remain 25-37 (even when I'm 50). ;-)

My sister Heather comes back home next week from Germany. I have not seen her since she left a year ago. It will be so good to see her!
