What I said when we met:
I suspect this might turn into one of the greatest things that's ever happened to me or it may be the thing that kills me. Combustible chemistry. Instant zing. OMG out-of-breath meeting. Of course, I didn't let on. Evening ended with one kiss and an invitation to see one another again.
Phone call the next day when he said- "that was the best first date I've ever been on in my life. I've got to get to know you better". Nothing like - I'm falling for you or I'm developing feelings for you or anything inappropriate or troublesome - just I'd like to take the time to get to know you. And he is.
I'm still in the "one of the greatest things" camp, even with the current state of the union. I'm a better person for having met him. And I still don't know how this will turn out and I'm okay with that. We talked about it this weekend and I am renewing my lease at The Closet, which is what I wanted. I/we don't know if we'll ever live together again. We are each engrossed in our personal journeys.
Spent some more time in the gym yesterday. Thank you for the book suggestions. What I'd really like (and wasn't smart enough to find) is a downloadable podcast/thingy that will walk me through a workout in real time. I'm sticking to nautilus-type equipment for now, so surely someone somewhere has done something like this? I don't want to have to carry around a piece of paper/log/whatever in the gym. I am considering the personal trainer for a lesson or two, but I am cranky enough to want to do things my way and not adhere to whatever philosophy said PT might preach.
I plan on spending some time on a gym bike today at lunch. And perhaps some lower-body strength training. Oh, and some ab work. As the spirit moves me.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. What doesn't kill you can make you stronger.
