On a scale of 1- a Nicholas Sparks book, I'd say the boyfriend is about a 3. This is exactly where I like him. I am SO not a romance girl. My idea of romance is when he agrees to go on a run with me or buys me a Kettlebell for Valentine's day. But then there are days when I come home to flowers sitting on my pillow or he buys me opal earrings out of the blue because he knows I'm totally obsessed with them and I see a more romantic side to him. So, this morning started off really great with that text. He tells me I'm beautiful AT LEAST once a day, but he never really writes me sweet things like that. He's just adorable.
Then, at work, one of my coworkers asked if I was losing weight! I was more than thrilled at that. It means I'm finally getting somewhere if the people I see every single day are noticing. Not to mention that I was wearing 4 shirts because it's always 20 degrees colder at work since it is literally on the beach. I mean, the kids play on a sand dune. I was on cloud 9.
Then my boss asked me to stay after school for an IEP, which I always say yes to because I like getting the experience. It's a great learning tool for me. I had told the ex that I would meet him for a trail run around 3. Well, the IEP ran a little longer than expected and I didn't leave until 4:15. By that point I had several texts from him saying he was just going to go by himself. I was hangry and I hadn't worked out, so I got into a really foul mood. I agreed to go have dinner with him, but only after a work out. I got to the gym and I was fuming. I was shaking and on the verge of tears. There was really NO reason for it other than I hadn't eaten in awhile and I hadn't worked out yet.
Well, after a
Then I headed to the ex's house where I got to see Milo and that made my mood even better. After we ate some delicious homemade chicken soup, I was back to being on cloud 9. I realized that today would have been our 7 year anniversary, so it's really random that we hung out today. Then he fed me watermelon and my whole life was complete.
Yeah, not the most flattering picture.
When I got home, I ate chocolate and now I am finally in bed. My mood is totally normal. Not super happy, not angry, just glad to be me and where I am in life.
