6:00 could not get here fast enough today! My boss let me go at 3:40 b/c I had to go drop off a check somewhere for him. Then I went and bought some Foxpoint for Mom, b/c she uses it on everything. Then I drove to a yummy Mexican restaurant for a date w/ Mr. O. We went on a lunch date last Friday and have been communicating ever since.
We had a great conversation at dinner and then went and saw Star Wars, b/c he hadn't seen it yet. After the date we sat in my car and talked for a while. He is Hispanic, handsome, humble, and a hard worker. It's interesting, b/c I thought for sure we would hold hands tonight during the movie. But every time I thought about holding his hand, it just didn't feel right for some reason.
It was almost 11:00, and he had to work in the morning and I needed to get home. I gave him a big hug and told him thank you so much. He said he had something for me and gave me these beautiful flowers and yummy chocolates since I won't be around on Valentine's Day! I was so touched by his kindness.
It's really fun to be dating again and to have someone to think about and text throughout the day. Especially since it's been SEVEN loooooooooong years since the last man I dated. I went to Nate & Riannon's since they had gotten Autumn for me at daycare. She was obviously asleep b/c it was so late, so we both spent the night there.
