Tennessee Here I Come!

I'm going on vacation, I'm going on vacation. *Does happy dance* This time tomorrow your girl will be on a plane with the fam headed to... Tennessee.

Ok, ya'll is probably like, Whats in TN? Its not like its a hot vacation spot (unless you going to the home of country music) but its our family reunion and thats the place they picked. They changed it up a bit (We usually stay on the East coast. Like GA, FL, SC, NC) but I don't even care. A week of no work, no cares, no worries, good food, and a pool. I'll be in HEAVEN.

I will definitely have more time to blog to so you'll get to see picks of my vacay and all that jazz. I'm so excited and I've got to pack. This is so uncharacteristic of me to still be packing this late in the game. I'm usually done 2 weeks in advance. But this foot injury has really been slowing me down.

Plus I need to find the battery charger for my camera. SMH. Too much going on. And my sis comes in from TX tonight to go with us. So I gotta make moves. Lots to do so little time to do it.

I am so HOT! The temp in my house is ridiculous. This humidity has got to stop.

My Show Was Great

So we all know I sprained my ankle so I couldn't do my dance show. I was totally bummed. I had been practicing the routines for months and I felt bad because I felt like I was letting down the other ladies in my groups, I'm one of the stronger dancers.

So this past Saturday was the show and just because I wasn't in it doesn't mean I couldn't go and see it.

It was awesome. The ladies in my group did great and my teacher took my part so it was all good. I was so glad. But I did miss being up on that stage. I miss dancing. This foot needs to heal up quick.

Ankle Update: That same Friday I went to the doctor. He took off the cast and said that my ankle was still unstable so I'm now wearing an air cast for the next 2-3 weeks. However, this cast is removable, THANK GOD! So I can put it on when I'm outside and walking around and take it off when I'm in the house. I can shower without the fear of getting it messed up. I'm still cautious though cuz I ain't trying to have a setback. And then my doc prescribed me 6 weeks of physical therapy so thats my summer.

At least it ain't broken. be continued.

Taking It Easy

So I have been out of commission for the last week and a half because of my ankle which has slowed me down considerably. At one point I was out almost every weekend. Now not so much and...

I don't miss it.

I am so happy to stay at home and relax. And I have a legitimate excuse. I've been taking the time to re-evaluate what I've been doing. In the last 6 months I broke up with Washington, dated 6'8 and talked off and on to a few others. I'm exhausted!

And not satisfied either.

I'm gonna take it easy. For a while.

I'll still be posting but not as much about relationships. I'm learning to wait and be patient. (cross your fingers lol) But hey what do I got to lose? My lack of patience got me here thus far and I'm not too happy about that so I figure why not try something new, right?

U Can't Be Serious?!

Washington continuously proves to me why I made the RIGHT decision in breaking it off with him.

He continues to try to convince me that what I believe is wrong. He is doing everything in his power. He even told me to use my brain because I am too grown to believe in God!

I don't understand his process. Does he seriously think I can sway me from my faith? Does he think that he can get me back by critizing me and what is a part of me?

I have been in a relationship with God for almost 20 years and He has proven time and again that He is faithful, He loves me, and wants the very best for my life. How could he possibly think that I would end my 18 year relationship with God for him?

It seems like we always have the same conversation and I'm tired. I've stopped explaining why, I've stopped entertaining him really. I let him talk and then I say, "ok wateva". I not gonna change his mind and he DEFINITELY ain't changing mine.

But he really can't be serious if he thinks this approach is gonna make me come running back to him. Smh.

Mr. E

His name has not appeared for a while on here but he's never been far away. He's that guy that you just can't shake. You keep thinking maybe. If this could be something...

Have you had someone that you liked but didn't want to talk about too much in case what you felt wasn't real? So that you didn't get all the "wateva happened to wat's his name?" questions.

I've always liked Mr. E. We connected on so many levels.

But I've always been iffy about him because we still have yet to go out. Still...

He holds a special place in my heart. He is never far from my mind and for that reason I had to ask him if he wanted more than friendship. Now I realize I asked him this before but I find that men like short and direct. So I was short and direct. And... he wants more.

This whole process of me knowing him has been slow and even after his admission it is still going slow and I'm not in a rush. I'm in a place where I don't want to settle because I don't think I'll be able to find what I'm looking for. So I'm being patient and I'm waiting. Cuz I've got time.

And we're praying for each other. PRAYING for each other!

That's a first for me and I like it. So Mr. E... still makes my heart flutter. And I'm slowing it down.

So the verdict is... Cast for two weeks, physical therapy afterward and no dancing or heels for a while. Great way to start off the summer. :(

Friday, June 4, 2010

On my way to the podiatist to see wats going on with my foot. Hoping and praying its nothing serious.

Is It Wrong? - Wishing You Could Put One Man's Head On Another Man's Body

It's been a while since I could conjure up one of these.

Now I don't exactly wish to do this exactly but... I do wish that I could put 6'8's personality and values in Washington's body. Lol.

I like 6'8 and I'm attracted to him but he's not my physical type and he's a lot older than me. He does excite me but not visually. His seduction style (if you will) is more mental which is HOT. I love when a man can articulate himself in an intelligent way and cause my mind to go on a journey painted by his words. A man who knows how to take care of a woman.

Washington is sexy to me. He's my physical type, the age difference isn't as huge (8 compared to 20. You do the math) and we have an amazing connection and he's a great kisser (ya'll know how I feel about kissing). But our values totally don't match. We are polar opposites. And he knows how to aggravate the HELL outta me for no other reason but to F with me. Not saying that 6'8 and I agree on everything vaule wise. Even some of the things he says sometimes make me give him the side eye but we are A LOT closer in that department then me and Washington.

So is it wrong for me to wish that I could have 6'8 personality, values, and dirty mind surgically implanted into Washington's football player body, with the sexy smile and perfect teeth? I know that we are supposed to accept them as they are or leave it alone but have we ever wanted to mix and match the people we've dated to create the perfect man or woman for us?

Just a thought. *shrugs* be continued

Weight Loss Flop?

Well, here's an update to my weight loss challenge.

I started out so well, so strong. And then... I went on a staff retreat four weeks ago Wednesday-Thursday (only two days, one night) so I couldn't really workout the Wednesday night. I came home late Thursday exhausted so I didn't work out. Then the following week because we missed two days of work I was in the office late allllllll week. I mean pushing 9 pm one night. So I would get home exhausted and hit my bed hard! I vowed to start back strong and in force on the 26th of May.

And then...

I hurt my foot. I don't know how I did it but I've been limping ever since. Now mind you I have been exercising. I take two dance classes a week at my studio, Jazz and Ballet, so I'm getting exercise and conditioning I just stopped doing Insanity and now I have to stop cause my foot can't take it. Washington said I should fight through the pain and keep working out because that is the price you pay to look good. *eyeroll and serious side eye* Yeah whatever.

I had ballet class last night. I had to tape my foot and when I got home OMG I was in PAIN!  

So I have an appointment scheduled with a podiatrist on Friday to figure out what the heck is going on. 6'8 says I may have a stress fracture which I'm hoping and praying is not the case. It would make sense though cuz it my left foot which is my good foot. My right has always given me problems cuz of my dancing. It pulls on me sometimes so I compensate with the left. The left has said enough is enough. 

My dance show, however, is in TWO WEEKS and I go on vacation at the end of this month. I do not want my foot in a cast.

So part of my weight loss flop is not entirely my fault. *sigh* At least I'm maintaining my weight.

And I'll keep you posted on the foot. smh. be continued
