  • So, apparently I have been noticed at the gym by a rather attractive (although not my personality type at ALL) black man. He saw me coming up the steps to the gym today and opened the door for me. He said "I saw ya comin' and thought Ah here she comes! Rain, sleet, whatever, you be runnin'! You're a beast!" I respectfully disagreed with the beastmode comment, but said "yes, rain... whatever, I'll be running to the gym". He says "That's what makes you a beast!" With that I escaped into the girls locker room. When I left, he was STILL at the front door talking to the guy behind the counter and struck up conversation again, saying that he's noticed my progress and when he first noticed me, he thought I was just a new years resolutioner. I told him that I've been coming to the gym since 2010 and he said "me too, that's how I know what kind of progress you've been making. You're like the incredible shrinking woman." I thanked him for his kindness and headed out to finish my workout (the run back from the gym).

    I've noticed this guy in the gym before b/c he's the stereotypical obnoxious black jock. He plays basketball over lunch and when he's running up and down the court but doesn't have the ball, he yells "BRING THE PAIN". He's an attention getter and finds drama on the court all the time (this guy elbowed him, that guy stepped on his foot, etc), so he's not interesting to me except in an "OMG, there he goes again" kind of way, but it's still really cool to get noticed by him.

    Additionally, as I was walking out today, another guy commented "Nice shirt"... I was wearing a moisture wicking tech shirt with a mummy on the front from a cross country 15k I did in 2011. Not quite sure what that was supposed to mean, but *shrug*

    And when I got back to the office there was a Major manning the office (boss and the *hot guy* were in a meeting and the new big wig boss is supposed to be stopping by so the Major sat in to greet him if he arrived). He asked me how my run went and I told him I lifted today. We talked about that a bit, then he asked if I ever use instagram. I told him I haven't. He walked over to my desk and showed me a pic that was on his instagram account of him (this could be misconstrued as sexual harrassment, so I'm going to whisper), shirtless, doing pullups. The ripples on this guy's back *fanningmyself* Nice... Wouldn't mind rolling over and seeing something like that in the morning! Oy. Me thinks Brad really needs to start hitting the gym.

      • I'm so sorry that you're feeling the way,you are feeling and really sorry that your family is so inconsiderate! It's a shame we're separated by a big ocean. Because I'd be happy to be there for.you and keep an eye on your kids at the same time!!!

        • Sometimes people just don't get how important things are to us - or they just don't care. Unfortunately both are true. My mom has 6 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren. She can barely remember the names of her grandchildren, and doesn't even know the names of most of the great grandchildren. And she doesn't really care. In return, her grandkids dont' give a rats ass about her. My son has only her, all his other grandparents have passed away. So basically he has none as well. My sisters son stopped at my moms apartment to say hi, after a long time of not seeing her. When she opened the door she said, "can I help you?" .......... he was so hurt that she didn't recognise him, he said "sorry, wrong apartment" - and turned and left. How sad is that?

          It is what is it......... we just have to accept it.

          I was hurt for a long time that no one cared enough to come to my graduation - but after 13 years I realize that it really doesn't matter - it was a big deal to me at that time........ but now, its not worth geing hurt over. I just let it go.

          Sometimes it just sucks.
          1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
          2. Eat to heal
          3. Move to live
          4. Embrace today
          5. Live with intention
          6. Respect my body
          7. Cultivate joy
          8. Find my passion
          9. Meditate on peace in my soul

          • Stepmom says that if the patient schedule doesn't fill up, she'll be able to get off work at 330 and be able to attend the hooding. She said she will get there RIGHT before the start, but at least she'll be able to come. She's going to let me know for sure tomorrow. Said she'll grab Dad and bring him too. I told her I would be willing to pick up Dad and take him with me, but she said that if she's able to come, she'd have to stop at home anyway (she's taking the truck to work but doesn't want to take it to Hooding - too expensive) so she'd just pick him up. Still waiting to see if he's planning to go even if she can't.

            If my stepmom can go, I'll be a happy happy girl.

              • Well, my dad is for sure going. He's going to meet me at my house and ride up with me just in case stepmom can't get off work in time. Fingers are crossed that she can go too.

                And is it wrong of me to hope that once Brad gets to the race track they get rained out??

                  • It seems everyone whose journals I follow are either sick or suffering from allergies! Yikes! I hope everyone feels better soon.

                    I'm off work at noon today. I have a blood donation appointment at 1230, then I'll be headed home to take care of a few things before hooding tonight. I need to iron my graduation gown and hood, possibly iron the clothes I want to wear tonight (once I figure out what I want to wear), and pack a diaper bag for my mom. Dad is supposed to be at my house by 3:30 so we can go. I'm hoping that leaves enough time to get me to the campus by 4:30.

                    Blood donation means no gym today.

                    And for the record, Brad still has not unloaded the dishwasher since the day we had our discussion... not surprised, really.

                    The rain really really really needs to stop for a while so the ground can get dried up so the garden can get tilled so I can freaking plant it... I had to transplant all of my seedlings into bigger seedling pots so they'd survive. Had to start some plants over (broccoli and brussels sprouts) because they didn't make it in the egg cartons. Mother Nature really is not being a friend.

                    Tha's all I got... I think I'll go browse FB for a while since I've already caught up on the journals.

                        • So glad your dad will be there for you tonight and I hope your step-mom will make it over as well. Enjoy your hooding ceremony tonight! So very proud of you!

                          P.S. if I were you, I would hope my spouses race got rained out too!

                            • Definitely, but we have a rule that you always have to respond no matter how frustrated you might be. If Hulky stepped out the door and got run over by a truck after a fight, and I hadn't responded, I'd never forgive myself.
