A tired Tuesday

Well just wanted to give an update. Thanks to all of you who wished me a safe drive, it's always appreciated. I did in fact have a safe drive, long but safe nonetheless. It was about 2.5 hours each way, I managed to get home about 1030 or 11 last night, and I'm whooped this morning. But it was worth it because my girlfriend was happy to see me, and appreciated it, and really that is all that matters.

I had a NSV of sorts. Even though I was on the road (in an unexpected trip even!), I managed to stay completely on plan. I packed snacks and dinner before I left the house yesterday evening, and ate dinner in the car before I went into the funeral home. So my first tracked day on 21 points went great. I think the key to being great on WW's is planning. Plan, Plan, Plan. As long as your plan your meals, you can stay within a points range, even being on the road ;)

I also talked to the ex last night for about 45 minutes, which really is a lot for me, I'm not a phone person at all ( I like to think it's because I'm on the phone all day and sick of it when I get off work). The conversation went well. Let me tell you a little about this guy, and our history.

My long term ex (Jason) and I broke up in July of last year, because he "needed time" (aka, time to go date this bitch girl that was trying to break us up). Well around Labor Day, my one good girlfriend asked me if I would be interested in going out with Scott, whose family I had known for years, and I knew of him. I said sure why not, it was time to get into the dating scene again. So we went out, and we had a great time and started seeing eachother. He was a very simple guy, something I'm not used too. He lives on a farm with his family, they still butcher thier own meat, etc, you get the idea. Our first date we went to Applebee's, and he'd never been there, I was just baffled, haha. Well he was so polite, and so hard working, and so simple (opposite of my ex in every way). I can go on and on about how good of a guy he was, but I'll spare ya.

Well in early September, Jason came crawling back (as I knew he would) but I rejected the plea to get back with him, because I was seeing Scott. Well Jason never gave up, and we would talk through Instant Messenger and Text, but I still didn't give into him wanting to get back together. Then Scott and I took a trip up north in the fall to see the colors and ride four wheelers. The trip was a disaster, and I had a miserable time. And when I got back, Jason was trying to get back into my life still, my grandfather passed away, and just in general it was a bad time. Needless to say I pushed Scott off to the side, and let Jason back into my life.

Well Jason and I did this he wanted to get back together, and I didn't thing for like 6 months, and finally I said It was over for good, and we haven't really spoken since.

So, lately, I had been feeling like I didn't give Scott a fair chance, one bad weekend and I checked out. It was cause Jason was yanking at me to get back together, and my grandfather passed away, and a variety of other things. I felt bad because I really just stopped talking to him, and never gave him a reason. Well then he called, and we hung out, and we've been talking. So regardless, I don't know if he's interested, or just interested in being friends, but regardless, I feel lucky to have the second chance to have him in my life.

Alright did I write a book, or did I write a book?

Another gorgeous day here, I need to get fertilizer on my lawn tonight because it's suppose to rain tonight and tomorrow. So that's the goal for tonight!

Alright, have a happy and healthy day bloggers!

Thanks for your comment. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who can't get it together, so why bother? I'm better now!

I love reading about your dating life...a very vicarious experience for me since I'm about to celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary next month!

Good to hear you were safe and ate well.

It's like reading a novel! Love it!
Hopefully things work out and you get another chance with Scott.
Go you for staying on track during an unexpected trip! It;s so hard because it's such a good excuse to go off plan!!
