So, I've went on a couple of dates~enough to make up for the couple of years I've been pursuing a job and single parenthood. Apparently I haven't really been missing all that much!! How long must one fish this sea?? Or is it fished out?? I think the mercury has killed all the really great guys as well. Is it too much to want someone just like Gil Grissom off CSI?? Okay, that order might be a little too steep. Personally, I just want to go out and dance some more. I feel like I'm 20 again, and nothing matters but the music. It's harder to make girlfriends than it is to find a man snuffling around your door~and girl friends are what I need right now...just cool people to hang out with that I can have fun with~no expectations. Oh sure, you can say that to guys...they hear "Hey, I'll have sex with you and you don't even have to feed me first." No. My daughter is not back yet from Florida. And now she wants to stay two more weeks. I can handle this~I'm a grown woman....I'm supposed to enjoy this time to myself. I do, but it's so damn lonely!! The solitude is nice, but I miss having someone here who gives me unconditional hugs. Well, actually, I can't forget the cats. They are driving me nuts as their not used to a quiet house, either. My only nighttime entertainment is watching them chase after the crickets that get out of the lizards' and spiders' cages. First day of summer camps. We taught two camps that were three hours apiece of 6 to 8 year olds. They were great kids, but boy, am I tired!! Now I remember what it was like to teach all day, and let me tell you~teachers deserve hazard pay!Well, I guess now I'll go take a shower, smoke a cigarette, and attempt to make the most of it! I wonder if taping up my cat's feet so I watch them jump around psychotically would be considered cruelty to animals?? JUST KIDDING!!
