feels so good

Well the kids are in bed, and I am on my way. Had a good day. I am doing better then I thought I would. We'll see how tomorrow goes. I have a friend that has kids my grandkids age is spending the night out here tomorrow night.

Something very weird happened today. My last boyfriend (we lived together for about 6 years) found me on facebook and we have emailed alittle. Well he called today and wanted to get together......and I said no. You have no idea how aften I have thought about this guy. ALOT. I haven't even dated since we split. Not that he's the reason or anything, it just worked out that way. I haven't seen or talked to him in almost 7 years. We had a couple of nice conversations, but I don't think it would be a good idea. I might do it when he could see my family too. Maybe when daughter and her hubby get home. He travels alot, so I might not here from him for awhile. Maybe never, who knows. I tossed around the idea all day. I feel so good that I made this decision. I really do think I dodged a bullet by not marrying him. He is divorced now and has had a hard time with the ladies, I guess. They all dump him he said. I often wondered if I did the right thing.....I did! I do enjoy being single, and I don't need any distractions right now. Or a reason to eat.....like he broke my heart again, boo hoo. And now I must eat. No thank you very much. I really don't know if I saw him again, if I might get all stupid again. I was so stupid in love most of my life. That's why I just don't bother. I am not settling if there's a next time....no way!

Now onto the important stuff. My daughter has a scale. I am so glad I don't have one at my house. I have been on that damn thing all day. It makes me chuckle. It hasn't been the same twice. It's a good WW scale too. I have lost and gain 4 lbs in the last 24 hrs. LOL! I have been eating watermelon like crazy. I have got the grandkids eating it like crazy too. I have been eating good, but I haven't been tracking everything.

I got up early, got the kids in the car and drove to walk with my buddy this morning. If I bring the kids ( the 2 that walk ) they are so SLOW. And they don't want to walk that far. My friend's daughter will watch them while we walk. Otherwise I wouldn't get the walking done. I know me. The kids and I also went to the bird park, cause it was early and cooler. They were so tired and had great naps. My daughter really does have the kids on a schedule. They don't really even fight to go to bed.......and that makes it nice. It felt good to be able to stroll thru the park. I can remember when just going up and down my stairs was too much.

I am SO BEAT! I feel really good about myself tonight. I made the right decision, and it feels so good!

feel good

  2. I enjoy being single, too. But I guess it's not for everyone.
    Scales are never the same twice...yet we track 'em like crazy!

  3. Stay strong - the ex sounds like trouble.

    I marvel at your energy with the little ones. Sounds like everyone is having fun.

  4. I always thought a good invention would be "shoe scales" that just showed you how much you weighed all the time and you never had to step on the scale again.

    Hmmm... maybe not.

  6. I know what you mean about "being stupid in love in your life" that was always me too. After leaving my first husband though I promised myself I wouldn't ever settle again or stay with someone I knew wouldn't work. I'm thankful I was smarter this time around. Way to go on saying no to the ex. Glad you got your walk in even with the kids. Sounds like you're doing well being with the grandkids. Thankfully my kids are good about going to bed too, it does make it easier.

  9. I know what you mean about the joys of being single - I am dating again after 3years on my own and it is very strange, but enjoyable too!

    Thanks for answering my question about early morning walking - I think it is the only way I am going to get my exercise in next week, so will plan some mid-morning snacks into the diet.

  10. Wow...glad you are sticking to your guns, but still...it always makes you feel good when those guys from the past ring you up.

    I have a watermelon on the counter for tomorrow, and can not wait to cut it open.

    Hope you weekend is wonderful!

  11. I'm just catching up on some of my favorite blogs, so I wanted to say thank you for your comments on my blog recently, and I'm glad you are doing so well.

    I'm also glad you did not succumb to the siren call of the old boyfriend. If he was not right for you back then, he probably would not be right for you now.
