A Letter

Dear you,

Hi. Remember me? I remember you. I still think about you from time to time. Mainly wondering how you're doing and if your life is what you'd imagined. To be honest, I don't think mine is exactly how I imagined, but I don't necessarily think of that as a bad thing. With time, things change. Goals change, opinions change and loves change. One thing I wonder about occassionally, and probably because there's a lot going on in my head, is what would have happened if you would have waited. Just a little longer. I didn't want you to wait for me forever, that wouldn't have been fair or nice. I just needed a little more time. Time to grow up a little. And time to recognize what I already knew. But that was then and this is now. Regardless of it all, I hope you're well. And happy. And most of all, I hope you've found exactly what you were looking for.

Love always.

Spring Has Sprung

Hi guys,

First, I'm sorry for the long hiatus. I don't have a real solid excuse, but I just haven't been feeling the creative juices to write. They've all been commandeered and directed in different directions. But I think they are slowly sneaking back.

A few things I've been thinking about:
1. Grease 2 is an awesome movie. The song lyrics are especially catchy. As I was flipping through the channels before bed last night I happened to stumble across it and it instantly brought a smile to my face.
2. I hit my head. A lot. Probably more times in a week than either of my baby nephews who are almost two and almost one, respectively. Just this morning, I managed to bang my head on the top of the refrigerator. Not a good way to start the day.
3. Last night, I went to Lunafest with one of my girlfriends. For those of you that may not know what Lunafest is, it's a traveling film festival that is "by, for, and about women." I've found myself saying "by, for, and about women" far too often the last few days when referring to this festival. Mainly because I think it's funny.
4. The closing film of the festival was about this cute little 81-year-old lady that lived in a desert in the US somewhere. One of the things she said really caught my attention: "If you're going to have a happy life, enjoy all your nows."

I plan on enjoyng all my nows a little more from now on.

Throw In The Towel

You know the saying "Bow out gracefully"? First of all, I feel like that's an oxymoron. For one thing, I'm not graceful. How are people expected to throw in the towel on something and do it gracefully? I've always been in awe of those men and women who are able to handle things with poise. I aspire to be like them. At this moment, I'm trying to figure out how I can bow out and be graceful. And I've got to tell's not looking good. It's looking more like I'll be bowing out awkwardly. Why, oh why, didn't my mom put me in dance classes to help with my grace?!

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Boy: "Do you really miss me that much?"
Girl: "Ya, so much."
Boy: "How did you survive without me before?"
Girl: "Well I didn't know what I didn't have and now that I know what I have, I don't want to be without it."
Boy: "Aw babers."

True story.

Dear Paul, I am miserable without you. Are you sure you want to stay in Europe until July 21? It's not too late to change your return flight date. Think about it.

ps. Too dramatic?

No More Sugar

I'm on a sugar hiatus. And not because I can't handle the sweet stuff, I practically live for it! But alas, it's because my sugar is in Europe for a month traveling and playing around. And I've got to tell you, it's hard. Probably because I'm a huge baby. But also because I completely adore the little joker and am used to having him around to play with, laugh with me and cuddle me. So far, it's been a week. One down, three to go. Wish me luck. I think I'm going to need it!

Here's What I Think

...I am obsessed with checking certain blogs. It gives me a nice view of what's going on in other people's lives. Is it a little creepy? Maybe. Should that be a surprise to anyone? Probably not. Do I love reading your blogs? Indeed.
...I have recently traveled to the fine cities of Portland and Seattle for some quick weekend warrior road trips. I prefer Seattle. Sorry Portland, you're great and all but you just don't get my motor running like the Emerald City. Although I am an equal-opportunity city lover, so maybe you could still schmooze me into liking you more. Little tip: Be gentler on my allergies. I am a sensitive, fair-skinned lady and you really stirred me up. Think about that.
...I think octopus are quite a neat animal. According to the lady at the Seattle Aquarium, they are a gentle animal. But the way Olive Oil through one of her tentacles up out of the water and onto the glass makes me wonder. Maybe she's a gentle killer.
...I've been really into Animal Planet lately, but the one show that makes me want to punch myself in the face over and over is Meerkat Manor. Not sure who's idea it was to set up cameras to film gopher-like animals in Africa, but I'd like to meet them. After meeting them I'd invite them to Montana to show them how we treat gophers. Just kidding! But seriously.
...It's interesting that the owner of Molly Moon's Ice Cream in Seattle actually first scooped ice cream here in Missoula at The Big Dipper. Made me love her ice cream a little bit more. I tip my hat to you Molly.
...I need to cook more. I asked my boo if he wanted me to make him a sandwich and he said, "No, I think I'll just have some cereal." Ouch.
...What goes around comes around. And because of that, it seems to me like some people are about due for a nice butt-kicking. Don't want to name names, but universe, if you're looking to kick some booty I've got a roster for you. Always happy to help.
