Confession of a non-blogging blogger

Hello Blog Land.

It's finally Friday. I was sick on Monday but boy has this week felt long.

I haven't had much going on or much that I've wanted to write about lately that I wanted others to read. The Man Friend is no more and it took a lot of back and forth in my head to come to that decision. I've always been leery about introducing a relationship here because guys seriously come and go.

When I introduced the old Man Friend I was pretty confident that we would last quite some time, then things started to go downwards and almost everything bothered me in some way or another and I was embarrassed to bring him around. When we started to make plans to live with each other, I knew I had to end it before I was tied in to a 12 month lease.

Needless to say, my mind has been occupied with other thoughts besides what I want to share with the blog-o-sphere.

After reading some other blogs, I've decided I'm going to date myself for a while, focus on me. Take myself to restaurants he wouldn't go to and to movies I was never invited to see. I'm going to work out harder and make that number below actually move!

I have so many fun events coming up that I'm looking forward to attending alone or with friends then I was when I knew I'd have a date. Bachelorette parties, weddings, block parties, State Fair, cabin weekends, etc.

Tonight is the kick-off to Ali's current single life with a happy hour with what feels like long lost friends and a night out in North East. Tomorrow I will be going to my cousins block party which should also be a blast since I've met a few of the folks before.

{I really wish I had an ice cold beer or glass of wine to cheers, but I don't so here's my water cup}

Cheers to following your heart, listening to your gut, and being strong enough to walk away
Here's to the fun times ahead
Get it girl!

  1. Sorry to hear about the breakup Ali, but it sounds like you have the right attitude! I admire your confidence and it sounds like you made the right decision.

    Even when Laurie and I started our blog, we weren't sure how much we should really share about our personal lives (husbands, etc) but I think readers appreciate the honesty, and can relate to the reality of your life because you have shared.

    Have a great weekend!

    And...I can't WAIT til the State Fair! Even though it sort of marks the end of the summer, I love it too much to be sad about that.
