First Few Dates Down

I am completely finished with this horrific weather. I am so finished I am not even going to address it on my blog..sigh

So this week has been fun, I have had the opportunity to go on a few dates and it has been good.  In true Joelle style I of course can't just go on a normal date, no, I cant just go out and have a nice relaxed time. Nope, not I. I find and go out with a guy who's currant profession is legally questionable, so much so that half way through the date (and 3 beers in) when he tells me what he does I have to go into the washroom to phone my police friend to come pick me up because I didn't want to stay and possibly be involved with anything.

Then on date number two after dinner (which I'll have you know I only drank Pepsi with) as I was walking out of the restaurant I missed the step and fell completely flat on my face. I put a hole in my jeans and cut my knee. Thankfully I don't get embarrassed and just started to laugh. sigh..I am such a knob!

But I have had some neat conversations with these guys. The one I would really like to share was my date this past weekend with a handsome Fire Fighter.  We met for a beer and talked about some common ground we share. During our conversation he made a innocent and beautiful comment about a coworker of mine. He simply said how beautiful she was, and how she was even more beautiful when she was pregnant.

Rachel is a dear friend of mine and when he said this I couldn't help but smile. These small moments when I see there are really great guys out there that see real women as beautiful in all our stages of life and not require them/us to be super model non eating skinny all the time made me so happy.
It's nice to have this dating thing sprinkled with moments like these that keep me believing someone great is out there for me.

Dating is not easy, but it's going okay.


Today:

I am grateful for Jenna. Anyone who knows me knows I love pranks!! On Aprils fools day she went to a lot of trouble and got me not once, not twice, but three times! Her end prank was when she hid in my van early in the morning and as I went outside to get into the van to go to work, I opened the door and she sent off an air horn. Scared me so bad I dropped my purse and slammed the door closed. I started to laugh and then opened the van door again slowly waiting for the air horn to go off again, it didn't and I went to put my stuff in the van, that's when she came crawling out the back of my van. Scared me so bad again I think I peed!! It was awesome!!!

I am grateful for blog comments. You guys are awesome and I always appreciate hearing your thoughts and feeling your support.

I am grateful for new flavors of tea to try.
