Be forewarned – today’s post is a little all over the place. I like to blog every day, and usually, one “big idea” comes to mind at some point during the day, or I read something I want to write about, or something in particular happens that day that I want to discuss. Today, there weren’t a lot of “big idea” things that happened, but I have a few smaller things I wanted to blog about, in no particular order (bear with me!):

  • CSB – so GD hot: Okay, so this is old news. He is my holy grail of hotness, yes, we know this. And yes, there is CSBGF to contend with…but each week, I swear, he is more attentive, just slightly more flirty and in a way, even more smolderingly hot !! During spin today, he was co-teaching with another instructor, so on the tracks he wasn’t instructing, he would just give me these long glances that seriously bore straight through me. He was playful, and gave me these gestures (like, don’t turn the resistance off, yes I’m talking to you, sort of gestures – guess you had to be there – LOL) and it’s entertaining and fun and flirty. I still can’t get past this phantom CSBGF, but what I do know is this: we email almost daily, he promised to run a 5K with me before the end of the year (was going to run one tomorrow and when I told him I was bowing out, he said he wasn’t going to go if I wasn’t!) and well, there is definitely flirting. Okay, I’m rambling. Enough with this random rumination πŸ˜‰
  • Shout out to Snarkbutt Divorced for a great blog on friendship and how frustrating it is when the level of friendship you give isn’t reciprocated. This is one of my biggest peeves, and it bums me out big time when my friends don’t reciprocate the same level of friendship I give. This is why I have slowly weaned down my circle of friends to those that DO reciprocate, and know the value of being a good friend. He comments: Yesterday I had an emergency meeting with my shrink. I ranted at him about my grudgeturbation issue. He said that he thinks this is a sociological problem in our culture. People are just too busy, they overbook their lives, and many of them are not very good at maintaining friendships. He brought up a good point: a lot of people don’t realize that friendships take work. You have to make a conscious effort to maintain them or they die. <– SO TRUE!!!
  • boys – so, there is an emergence of boy #3 (works down the street from him – drinks soon. Cute, guy-ish, likes to travel), boy #4 (30, divorced, VERY attractive, we’ve emailed a bunch, date #1 next Thurs!!) and boy #5 (33, also attractive, outgoing, seems fun, hoping it moves to date stage). Phew – this dating stuff is going to get confusing soon πŸ˜‰ (oh, and boy #1 is still around…date #2 TBC). But, I say, bring. it. on.

There you have it – my random blog for the week – a few snippets of a few thoughts across the board. It’s beautiful, hot, and sunny here in New England and the timing couldn’t be better. I’m off to Maine for another 5 days (starting tomorrow) so no more blogs till Thursday. I’ll post another diary-type blog of my week πŸ™‚ Cheers!
