Where the heck have I been?

The only thing I've done in the past week is work,laundry and keeping up on the house chores. Not one bit of crafting/scrapping/t.v. watching has been done....why you might ask? Or, maybe ya just don't care, but I'm gonna tell ya anyway!

I've been spending time with a real live boy...up close and in person!!!! Exciting huh? is to me. I've been divorced for almost 9 years now, most all of that time has been alone, (as in no romantic relationships whatsoever) don't feel bad though, mostly it was by choice. Dating hasn't ever been a priority, and I don't care to just date every available man, just for the sake of dating or not being alone. After my divorce, I made the decision not to settle for something that I didn't want and I didn't want anything that even reminded me of my toxic, unhealthy marriage. Do you know how hard it is to find a really nice guy---one that you actually WANT to spend the time to get to know??? For me, it was pretty hard.

I'd done the single dating activities that my church offers..............UGH. Not for me. I'd done cyber dating, and spent some time talking to some guys online. Some were really nice, some really freakin weird, and some were just players. Not what I was looking for, but I would do it--mainly because I was bored.

Well, a few weeks ago I just decided I was done. I deleted my online account, dismissed every guy I was talking to, and let it go. The next morning I get a call from my girlfriend....she was so excited....she had a guy for me! lol...sounds funny, cuz that's exactly what she said "Shar, I have a guy for ya!!" Well, super! She had tried to set me up before, unsuccessfully, I might add..but she was excited and was sure that this one was it. She had that GUT feeling and when she's had that before and introduced a couple together, both couples ended up married!!! So....introducing me and this guy was going to be her mission. Weirdly enough, this was the same guy that she wanted to introduce me to several years ago, but he had just gotten involved with someone else, ended up married, and now is available again! So..a long story shorter....(cuz dang, this is turning out to be a freakin novel) we met.....we like each other....we are totally comfortable...we have spent every available moment together and it's like we've known each other forever.

When the time is right and the right person comes along...ya gotta just go with it, let it happen and see what develops! This snuck up on me and then hit me like a ton of bricks!!! Crazy how things happen!!! I'm excited, I'm kinda freaked out (but just a little bit and in a good way) and I'm really looking forward to the future! It should be interesting!!!


  1. Fun! Timing is definitely everything. For the Card Cupids cards, you can sign them with a message and just not address them to a child. The hospital gives them out when a child is having a tough day.

  2. So happy for you.
    When hubby asked me on a date I had just broken up with a boy. He said he was just waiting for this break up, LOL. I made it very clear, that this was just a date, dinner and probably the last one. That was 27 years ago LOL.

  3. Timing really is everything, isn't it? This is so awesome! I wish you all the best with this and hope everything goes FABULOUS!!!!

  4. You know I'm happy if you're happy!! :)

  5. Awww, I am sooooo happy for you, Sharla!! What a gift the right one is. Thankfully I found the right one 20 years ago...I can't believe he has put up with me that long;)

    What a perfect thing for Christmas!!

    I appreciate your love and support. I can feel it!!!!!!
