Before I get to my story, it’s been a quiet week around the hacienda! Cooler temps are finally hitting N. Texas, and last weekend I took advantage to get some outside cleaning done–my arms have finally stopped hurting!And I will get those screens back on the windows tomorrow–okay okay…..tonight!
I’ve been reading and hitting the kids’ football game and working–the boss is gone but I have plenty of little projects to keep me busy!
Now, onto my story. (For those of you who don’t know me so well–I don’t date. I haven’t dated in years and even if I did date, I wouldn’t have a man around my kids because I”m just not looking for that kind of dating thing. For the most part, I LIKE being single and having my own space. Unfortunately there are downsides to not dating).
Last Saturday night I took the kids to the bar–get your minds out of the gutter. I am NOT one of those skeezer moms. My cousin was playing with her band at a local pub and children were welcome. She even brought her own son. Anyway, this old family friend showed up (I’ve known Steve since I was probably 12 or 13–and he’s a confirmed bachelor).Â And while we were talking Kevin (#2 son) showed up. He sat, I introduced him to Steve, and we went back to talking. Kevin gets up and stands in front of me, doing his best to jockey his way between us.
I’m not lying.*boggle*
I told him to go sit down–I knew EXACTLY what he was doing. He sat. Then got up and did it again. I told him to sit–again! Finally, exasperated over my lack of gratitude for wanting to proect his mama from the big bad man, he wandered off. *sigh*
Maybe not dating wasn’t such a great idea 🙁 At the same time, I guess he comes by his territorialness quite honestly since I’m rather protective of my space.
The children are gone this weekend–no bars though LOL I’m gonna chill and try to get some writing done! What about you?
In other news,Hittin’ It has a cover! (Plz ignore blurb. Is completely wrong). I know I say this every time but I really do think this one is my favorite!
