Okay, so after I went on that long piff about NOT joining Match.com, I did. BUT...not really. I'm doing the 7 day trial right now just to get a feel for what it's like. I absolutely am not going to spend $100 on a dating site when I am not 100% secure financially right now. It's interesting to say the least. For one, I don't like how you put specifics of what you're looking for and yet people who don't match that can message you. I have an abundance of 40 year old men trying to contact me. Ummm...read my profile guys! Not looking for guys over 32. It easily tells you who is actually taking the time to read your profile or just look at your picture. Anyway, the whole thing is so bizarre. I have connected with one guy and probably plan on talking to him after the trial is up. He's a few hours away, so it probably won't amount to anything. It's strange because I'm honestly not sure I want anything to amount to anything with anyone. I have no idea why I'm even looking. I guess it doesn't hurt. I'd love to be able to just find someone cool to hang out with, where there is no dating pressure. I think that's pretty impossible. Whatever.
I have been so focused on getting this 30 Days thing done, I'm not sure where I've left off with my personal life. Right now, I have a job as a night nanny. I'm working 11pm-7am taking care of two newborn twins. I've never worked an overnight job before, but so far so good. The only thing is that right now the little boy is in the NICU. He has RSV but is also having seizures. Not good at all. He'll be there for a little while longer so right now, things are pretty easy with just me and the baby girl. It will probably be a different story once he comes home. But, it's only temporary so it's fine to get me through. I'm thankful and blessed I've been given this position. Nothing else has panned out so far and it's REALLY frustrating.
Yesterday I spent some time with two awesome friends of mine, Tim and Megan. They recently moved from Florida and I haven't seen them in a REALLY long time. I think the last time was before I moved to Virginia! CRAZY! They now have an adorable 10 month old baby boy named Nolen and Megan documents his life on her blog, Baby Nolen's Journey. You should check her out! Anyway, I feel very blessed they were considerate enough to open up their home in the mountains to me this week for a visit. It was PRECISELY what I needed to get through the holidays and the upcoming changes. It was really great being around such sweet people. We had an amazing dinner, so closely resembling Thanksgiving. It was delicious! Then us kiddos spent some time downstairs in the movie room watching TV, downing glasses of wine, and chit chatting about life. I'm so blessed. Thanks guys! <3
I'll be moving into my new digs on the 30th and I'm really excited and nervous about it. Since I've been living with friends, it hasn't sunk in yet that I'm actually HERE and on my own. I mean, it has and it hasn't. But the house is beautiful and I'll have the entire upstairs to myself, which is great. I really like the girl I'll be living with and we have some stuff in common in the sense her fiance is deployed, but works for the contracting company the military uses. I obviously can sympathize with all of that stuff. I'm so happy to be living in a CLEAN, NEAT, PRETTY, ORDERLY home with just ONE other person. I absolutely learned my lesson last time I had roomies. Sheesh! No drama!
Anyway, I just fed the baby a bit ago and it's time for me to try to get some sleep.
