You Don't Have A Boyfriend??!

I hate this question...

The last time I had to worry about being asked this question was when I was in HS...I started dating my ex-h when I was 17 so I haven't heard the question since. The worst offender was my Grandpa T who asked ALL of us girls every time we saw him, first thing - "You got a boyfriend yet??" *cringe* Just what a awkward, self conscious, single teenage girl WANTS to be asked by her grandfather!! Or even worse, if we DID have a boyfriend, to have to answer yes!! *dramatic gasp*

So, since I haven't heard this for a good ten years, I was a little taken aback when I was asked this question on Friday night chillin with my "cousins" at Chatters. And the perfect compliment to that question?? The puzzled pity look like "How is that possible...what's wrong with you??!". Heeellllooew...maybe I don't want one. Diggin my single time. Did you ever think of that, huh? Huh? Didda ya, didda ya, huh? HUH?? (Channelling the Dori vibe right there, you wish you were that cool)

I kinda let that one slide Friday night as a fluke but THEN, I went to my friend Lindsey's home town of Carrolton, MO (Go Trojans - yeah how cool is that that we have the same HS mascot!!) and her sister was like "So, Dawn, do you have a boyfriend, fiance...husband??"

Um, no, no and uh...no.

What happened?? Have I just been lucky to have not been asked this for a whole year?? I mean, guys have asked me but that's because they were interested and I don't mind that question then. *wink* But I hate it when it is followed by the awkward silent "oh"... ':o

99.9% of the time I am glad to be single and actually prefer it that way. I do what I want when I want and I don't have to keep someone else updated on what I've been doing/will be doing. No one else to please with how I look or dress or to get a guilt trip when I go out and act retarded with the girls. No else to factor into my plans. I talk to, flirt with whoever I want and in no way have to feel guilty about it. I'm single. It ain't always easy but I like it!

So, to anyone who asks if I have a boyfriend my answer is - "HELL NO I Don't Have a Boyfriend!!"

:o)

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.


Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight...
Ok...um...that worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …
