"Create a blog entry"

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I've been staring at this on my start page for over a month.. I've *wanted* to write a blog, I just haven't known what to write about. Nothing is really new, per se, though a lot has changed in the last couple months. I'm training for a half marathon - not new, I do this every 16-18 weeks. On the other hand, this time I'm going to go to Victoria in October, not Kelowna. I have a different position in my company - not *really* new because a couple years ago I was the receptionist. This time though, I'm a /coordinator instead of a /billing clerk.

And then there's Paul/PEHASS2 emoticon He's not new but we're definitely taking things to a new level. We spend even more time together, talk more about what the future holds and generally just enjoy. I've finally found someone willing to share every part of my life and with whom I can be me. The real me. Know what I mean? I think he may even like my kids, my dog and my cats..... though he *could* be just faking that, I suppose. Nah, no one is THAT good of an actor. The best part is: the kids, the dog and the cats like him right back. He fits in here. No major adjustments required. And that suits me just fine.

**ETA** Countdown to Hood to Coast = 19 days! But there are only 17 until I'm standing in the Portland airport!! emoticon

    Aw, you & Paul are so cute together. And your boys are adorable. I didn't know they were yours when I first met them at the RR the other day. I just thought they were great kids who were very encouraging to everyone they passed. Each time I got a high 5, it put a big smile on my face. It made the lake feel a bit smaller and I wasn't feeling as sore as I was.

    And as a divorce kid, I can tell you that my brother & I were pretty tough customers as far as liking anyone our parents dated. Kids (and pets) are way better judges of character than we give them credit for. So the fact that your kids & pets like Paul says a lot about him I think.

    Ha Penny...I was thinking this exact same thing today while watching Bobby ride in circles at the tri. I need to write a blog. But about what? Hmmm. Perhaps I can come up with something. Just as you did. And isn't it nice to say nothing really that new is going on. Because sometimes something new sometimes means "not good". So glad things are good!
