I'm staying in town this weekend, and Mike has assumed that we're still going to do lots of things together this weekend. I'm perfectly fine with doing *something* with him Friday night and maybe catching a movie together later in the weekend, but I have errands to run, curtains to hang, friends to spend time with other than him, and a date Saturday night, so he's *not* going to have my full attention!
His assumptions are a large part of why I don't want to spend time with him, but his negativity about everything is the larger reason. Not to mention his neuroses!
I'm generally pretty upbeat about things, and I try to see the positive in things. Mike instantly critiques everything, and nitpicks everything. Of course, he was an attorny for the FTC for years, and that was a large part of his job, so it's understandable that he does that. But it drives me nuts.
Okay. The new man. I met him through eharmony, and he is so cool! Handsome, tall, smart, funny, charming, etc. We've had two dates so far, have talked a few times, and will be going out again Saturday evening. I'm already twitterpated! I've mentioned my food allergies to him, and he seems unfazed by it so far. He had to change his diet a few months ago because his cholesterol was through the roof - he'd spent many years grabbing fast food for most of his meals while he built up his business, and went in for a physical a few months ago. Discovered his cholesterol was high, and met with a nutritionist to clean up his diet. He's lost about 15 pounds so far (doesn't seem to need to lose any more, either!). I haven't mentioned the BTD yet, but will see if I can find out his blood type if this continues to go well!
When I got home yesterday morning, I made a couple of lamb chops, and then fried an egg and ate it and the two little bitty lamb chops. Puttered around longer than I should have, and went to bed. I didn't sleep well, though, and woke up with a sore throat about 4:30 pm. Couldn't sleep anymore, and still felt yucky. I think the wheat from earlier this week is catching up with me. I skipped acting class, and finally fell asleep again for about 45 minutes until Mike called me about 10:30 pm. We talked for a while, and then I got ready for work.
Brought my other lamb chop, spinach, and spelt bread to work. Cherries and almonds for snacks. I bought some mango lemonade at Trader Joe's yesterday, and brought a cup of that to work tonight. I've been good about walking during my breaks, and last night walked about a mile. Tonight I've only walked a quarter mile so far, so I either have to walk during my entire break, or walk after work in order to get my mile in. Or maybe I'll just get in 3/4 of a mile tonight. : )
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
