A long while ago I posted about this old friend of mine whom I had deep feelings for. Well, I got married and moved away, he got a girlfriend and what have you-we both moved on. I never got over him in my heart. He was that one guy that a piece of my heart would always belong to. Well, we're having dinner within the next week and I'm a nervous wreck. I keep thinking about the typical things, like what will I wear, what will I say when I see him, should I play it totally cool, or just be how I feel. I'm kind of weirded out a little to tell you the truth. Part of me thinks Cowboy Dan is going to jump out from behind the bushes and shoot me. He hated this guy because I dated him after C.D broke up with me after we first met, and I totally fell in love with this guy and C.D knew it. I mean, I know this is a totally platonic dinner, but I still have that butterfly thing going on in my stomach, and no matter how much I tell myself to chill out, I can't help but do the stupid girly giggle every time I think about it. Hehe. Girly giggles can make you feel good every now and then though, so I'm not too worried about it. =P


Turkey Day

Today was pretty emotional all around for just a day to gorge myself on turkey and other foodies. My Papa Dom made a little speech to the whole family and talked about what we should do when he was passed. I don't think I'd thought about it in such real terms yet. Especially with him sitting right before me. It was hard not to get very emotional to tell you the truth. I was able to get a hold of Dan and the boys almost each day, so that was a good thing. I miss them and can't wait to see the kids. Sorry I still haven't posted about the outcome of the evaluation yet. Honestly, I just haven't been ready-nor have I had much time. Its going to be a long post. I fly back from WI tomorrow late afternoon. Hope you all had a great day.

Italian Turkey Days

Hi. Its almost 5am and Rosie has been up since 2am. Needless to say this is going to be a snippet of a post. I'm in Wisconsin for the week visiting my Papa Dom. He looks a lot better than I thought he would. Only has lost about twenty pounds total. All of which I will gain before the week is up, ,lol. Anyway, ,when I get home I am going to sit down and hash out on here what happened in court with the Notorious D.A.N last week. Hope you all have a super uber Turkey Day. XoXo




I went to court yesterday for PSS and alimony. Neither of which I got because Dan doesn't have any money supposedly. The custody evaluation came in as well, but I'm not sure if I can talk about it on here or not. I can say that I'm pretty happy with it. I'm going to find out though and post as soon as I can. Hope all is well with everyone.


Yours truly...

I know I'll get a thousand spam comments just by doing this, but does anyone want to sell me a good laptop? I need one really bad, the old Pentium II is just not cutting it anymore. (lol)
