It was a dark and rainy night...

And as I was getting ready for bed, it occurred to me that it has been about 24 hours since I have posted anything on my blog.  

I have a huge weekend ahead of me, and I am grateful for every single bit of it.  I get to see someone tomorrow for a meeting and lunch.  I am super excited about that.  And my nephew is stopping on his way to the airport - going to Taiwan for 3 weeks - to bring his cat for me to babysit!  How awesome is that!  

For months, a friend and I have planned to do our first open water swim of the season this weekend.  The weather is awful.  Cold, overcast, rainy... you can't even see the mountains.  We may still do an open water swim, but it will be really stimulating - AKA freezing cold.  

This afternoon the former b.f. I referenced yesterday called me and told me he will be in town this weekend and would like to see me.  ha!  I told him that ____ (my former sponsee who posted love notes all over his facebook wall) would be really happy to see him.  He was shocked that I knew he was seeing her.  What the hell do people think when they put private stuff all over facebook?  Ick, Ick, and double Ick.  

So, I have great stuff to do all weekend, and I am relieved to have a huge deadline behind me at work and three days off to recuperate.  

Life is good.  Rainy or not.  People acting like jackasses or not.  God is good and he loves me more than I could ever imagine.   The fact that I am sitting here sober tonight is proof positive of that!

Great post. Have a great weekend and a wonderful swim. You're definitely brave! I can't handle cold water at all.

The next time I travel somewhere, I'll bring you my 3 cats to babysit. Please make sure to brush them and bathe them each day.
In the meantime, enjoy your busy weekend.

Facebook can be fun if you approach it that way. I have reconnected with some people I would not have been able to contact. Like almost everything else, it can be what one wants it to be.

Hope your weekend is smashing.

I hope your weekend is lovely...
Congrats on some great perspective on the b.f. and life - seems like your h.p. might be working for you (like, you might have been tempted if you'd not...)...

Anyway, blessings and aloha...

The water was 71 F here but still a bit cold for me. I can't imagine the swim that you are going to do.
