This morning, I realized as I was running out the door that I hadn’t weighed myself this morning. I could have run back upstairs. I hadn’t eaten or drank anything yet, and was actually running early for work.

But I decided I didn’t care enough. Not because I was avoiding it. In fact I’m fairly sure that I’m down a bit.

But I was in a good mood, dressed in a cute outfit, and was going to have a good day.

Whatever the scale had to say just didn’t matter.

I am so awkward.

Second time he asks me what I’m up to tonight. Last night I mention I’m free, and this morning when he asks again… I tell him that I have 2 small things to do but I’m pretty flexible and ask what he’s thinking.

Oh. No. He wasn’t thinking anything. He was just making conversation.

Now I get to fumble around and pretend that I didn’t get all into plans tonight that we don’t have.

God I’m awkward. I thought awkward ended once you started dating?

(Also, there is no subtle way to let him know that shark week is over. None. Whatsoever. Not even gonna try. I’m waiting this one out.)

The Cycle

Gets up early to run while it’s still chilly out.

Procrastinates, eventually gets dressed. 

Makes coffee and smart ones breakfast sandwich.

Makes new running playlist over coffee because clearly none of my existing music is acceptable.

Thinks to myself… Hmm. it’s definitely warmed up. Maybe it’s too late.. better luck next time.

(Not really, leaving in a few, but I’m dangerously close to this happening)

Warning: Mushy Love Stuff Ahead

A day of insecurity over dumb stuff, followed by a double date with the BFFL and her new boy. J was kinda quiet, so I wasn’t totally sure what was going on. Just a bit tired I guess.

By the time we get back to the house the weirdness is gone and he wants to show me the game he plays. There was some big pro tournament this weekend and he’d been watching it, and he really enjoys it, so we watched for a half hour while he explained it. Personally.. The game.. eh, but he was so excited and then sad when his team lost.. It was cute.

Then, the plan of putting on a movie was foiled by cuddling, a tickle war and making out. Halfway through he stops everything to comment on how lucky he is and happy to have found me.

I can’t get over how much I want to tell him to be quiet because I’m the lucky one here.

And I am so happy to have found him.

(Now if only we didn’t perpetually have weekend plans. 9/10 times one or both of is is up and out by 8AM. All I want is one lazy Sunday morning in bed. Too much to ask for?)

Both times are super personal records for me. I’ll take em!

I hate wearing shorts. But look at me, shorts are happening. At least the outfit is cute.

Today is a constant struggle between 3 things…

Is the 4 hours of sleep really getting to you that much?


Or is everyone around me just as annoying as I think they are today?

I mean it’s probably me, but I’m going with number 3. It’s definitely them.

Twice in a week…

Casual mentions of loving me slipped into conversation. No serious I Love You but causally slipped into a joke or in response to something I do as “that’s why I love you”

Last week it was in bed after some funtimes, so I kind of chocked it up to that and wasn’t gonna hold him to it or needing to explain.

Yesterday I showed up and gave him a 99 cent pack Reese’s I picked up at CVS because I know he likes them… Give it to him as I walk in and we’re not even through the garage and he says “that is why I love you.”

It could be just something he says to friends, the same way I so often say “I love you, but…” When I want to jokingly give someone crap… But even if that were true I feel like a guy would be cautious about saying that to a girlfriend he’s been dating for a month…

But on the offhand he’s completely serious and remarkably nonchalant about dropping it in, it doesn’t scare me in the slightest. Even if I’m not there yet or ready to say it, I never want him to stop.
