The higher the hair, the closer to God.

So I'm a Texas girl now.  Got here 5/13/2016.  Considering I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida my whole life, Houston isn't THAT big of a change yet.  I do know it does get hotter here in the Summer.  I know it does get colder in the Winter.  Im very excited to experience Fall here.  That was a major thing I missed growing up in Florida was the changing season and the colors on the trees.  There is a really nice park 2 miles from where we live.  And within that park is a really nice dog park with lots of trees.  I can't wait to see the change.

So far, I really love where we live.  We are in Houston but Northwest of downtown.  It's a perfect blend.  Not too city and not too country.  There are even a couple former JS'ers not too far from me that I hope to get to meet in the future.  Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to post pictures.

I think moving to Texas was one of the best things I ever did.

Its the firstofthemonth....

I always liked Bone Thugs and Harmony.  Wonder what they are all doing now.

So I downloaded the blogger app to make posting entries a little easier.  But it seems I can only post pics I take from the camera.  I dont think you can pull any from your phone gallery to post.  Still figuring this out.

So yeah, ok.  Last time I posted was 11/2010.  I guess you could say a lot has happened since then.  Let me try to get comfy, I have a lot of typing to do.

So my dad passed away that December.  The 18th specifically.  So of course the holidays were quite melancholy for me as my mom had passed a few years prior on Jan 3rd.

Around that time I had been talking to a guy online and we were developing a nice relationship and were planning on finally meeting soon.  He ended up coming to visit in January.  Its hard to put into words the whole experience because it was good and also it was not so good at the same time.  Fast forward to March 2011 and I flew to Houston to visit him.  Now in my defense, remember I had just lost my father so lets just say I had a few lapse in judgement moments.  I went for a long weekend.  One of the high points was renting a Harley and driving to Austin.  We went to this place called the Oasis which of course is a tourist trap and the food is ok at best.  But the reason everyone goes there is to watch the amazing sunset over lake Travis.  That was my first time riding on a bike like that.  All I can say is wow.

Also, that weekend we attended a get together for couples who had met of this particular dating site we were all members of.  It was small, just 3 couples but it was fun.  Dinner, clubbing, then finishing up the night at a local pub.  The people I met that night would change my life in more ways than one.

The last thing we did before I came back home was go to the Houston rodeo.  Its a pretty big deal.  We also saw Kiss.  Thay wasn't such a big deal because of the rodeo being all family oriented they had to tone down their show.  But they are getting up there in years so you know... It was kindnof disappointing.  As was the day I flew back home to Florida.  Lets just say I wasn't going to be seeing Mr. Harley again.  He ended up being a douche nozzle to the Nth degree.  I suppose I was blinded by grief a bit.  But at that point in my life I was so desperate to find love, I tolerated behavior that I never would have put up with normally.

So fast forward to the following January (2012) and I'm cleaning out old phone numbers and come across the one of one of the other guys who was at the couples get together the previous March.  He also lived in Houston.  So I just sent him a text to say "Hi, how ya doing?" and we start talking on the phone every night getting to know each other better.  I think we had been talking over a month when he said he had a confession to make.  He said that night all the couples met and it was time to say goodbye, when we hugged he felt a spark between us.  He said "after that hug, i knew I was going to see you again."  I was like whooooa!  So he ended up coming to Florida for a long weekend in April. That weekend I knew I had met the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with....

A little dusting off

Well well well..... The old grey mare aint dead yet hahahaha.  My last blog entry was Nov of 2009.  I was just thinking the other day that it would be nice to start documenting life again this way.  And now with things being so easy via apps and such, I think I'll give it a go.

Just gonna figure out how this all works and I'll be back shortly.

two fer Tuesday

Well I will be lucky if I bang out one entry today LOL. Nothing new to report. At least the weather has been amazing the past 4 days. We had a nice cool front come through so the high was in the lower 70's and the lows were in the 50's. It's so delicious. Nothing makes me happier than a blue sky with chilly temps.

Dad's ok, same old same old.

I've met some people from the dating sites Im on. Meh.... same old story... starts out good then they drop off the face of the planet. It's not me, it's them right? I'm just being myself... I think Im a pretty damn good catch. What is wrong with these men? Sigh.....

mid weekend

So I am almost at the end of my 3 day weekend. Sunday I volunteered at the local Aveda Institute. They had a cut-a-thon and also were offering mani/pedi's and 30 minute massage. 100% of the proceeds went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I had a good time and made a few new clients to boot. Today was chiropractor day and then in the afternoon I had to take Dad to the dentist. He lost a tooth on Thursday. And wouldn't you know, we get there today and I forgot to bring it. Well turns it the dentist wasn't going to be able to use it anyways. So he has to go back on Wednesday and he will get whatever was left under the crown pulled out.. Oh boy, I wonder how that will go. I will be at work and who knows how this will all go down. I have public transportation coming to pick him up and take him home. This will be a real test. Jeez, I didn't think about all this stuff before. Like will he remember to lock the door and stuff?

He just came over and informed me my typing is making too much noise and the neighbors are going to complain. This is what I have to deal with people.... Sigh.... Good night all.

match. set. point.

OK I joined tonight. Mostly because I had an email waiting and I wanted to see if it was from someone I had winked at (of course it wasn't) It was from this guy who is a professor at the Art Institute (I went there right out of high school) Kind of my type but not really because I didn't see anything on his page about sports and I am a HUGE football fan. You would think that would be a plus but I feel guys are intimidated when a girl is a big fan. I dunno but anyways, wish me luck.

Today I was busy at work (yay) Hopefully Monday they start the salon remodel. Dammit I forgot to take before pics. Im sure one of my camera crazy co-workers will take care of that for me. Not much else to write.... Maybe I will go watch a movie....

WHat's love got to do with it?

Today I filled out a profile on Match dot com. A few days ago I filled out one on Eharmony. At least on Match you can see pics of the men in your area. On Eharmony you can't see anything til you hand over the cash monies.... Match is 60.00 for three months and Eharmony is 71.00 for 4 months. I cant decide which to join. I've already sent two winks on Match.... LOL
