I have a headache!

Universe, I hate headaches. :) With all these weather changes here in the south (there is a cold front moving in) I have a nice whopper of one. Sinis. Blech.

Life has been moving along at quite a crisp pace lately. David (the BF) and I both laughed yesterday at how busy we seem to be. And with both of us being somewhat structured people we decided to try to lay down some "lazytime" sometime soon. I know that I have alot of things going on all the time and it does require an additional helping of C&C (communication and compromise) which I think I'm handling pretty well. Having been single for so long, I got used to doing whatever it is the heck I wanted. Not much has changed. LOL :) But now it seems there are even more options, what with him being a much more social creature than I am. I think once I purchased my home...I really became a home-body.

So I asked David if I could post a picture up over e-mail and before he even read the e-mail he had called me asking me why I hadn't put a picture of him/us on the blog. So here it is!

Isn't he cute? And the best thing? He's HOT for me! LOL :) I really really really really (did I mention "really"?) like him. We're really good together physically (and HOW *wipes sweat off forehead*), intellectually, and emotionally. It's really nice to be able to lean on someone when I'm feeling a bit off and it's nice to be needed in return. And it's rare I can find someone to put up with me *laugh* :)

So today I had to take my car into the shop as the check engine light was on and I needed an oil change. And damnit all wouldn't you know that it's going to be $300 to get that thing fixed. Crapola and a half. *sigh* But...if I'm planning on driving to Mississippi to see Mom in two weeks, I don't want to break down halfway. That would blow the suckage even more!

I really can't complain otherwise. Actually, I can *laugh* But you know...that never did anyone any good. So I'm just going to grab what would have been my tattoo fund (this big bucket of quarters) and cash it in to put into the bank. I can always replace that money later with my raise in January (I wouldn't be getting it until then anyway...don't want to have to cover a new tatoo with this weather being so nice and sunny).

Maybe I can make a few pieces of art and sell them. I know I owe my sisters one a piece and I have most of the materials for that. Once I get them complete, I'll put some pictures online. :)

--- Update after posting this thing ---

So David comes in and reads this entry and then I said, "Come here and give me a hug..." expecting a little TLC...he starts kissing my ear and neck and I say (with my head in the pillow), "Did I mention I had a headache?". He says in a seductive voice, "You know what they say is good for that?". I pause briefly and venture, "Ibuprofin?" to which his colorful reply was, "Not that...what you need doesn't even come in a comes in BRIEFS!" to which I just responded with a giggle.

The House Sitters

So this past week I was asked by one of my best friends to house sit. Of course...there were benefits, namely a private pool. And yes I did enjoy swimming nekkid! LOL :) And the BF and I did stay there a number of nights together, so it was kind of like a little romantic holiday. Since we met at my friend's pool in the first place, it was kind of poetic that we had our first month's anniversary at the very same place :)

I have to say that this "boyfriend" thing is really nice. I definitely feel desired and we just have FUN! Not that it hasn't been a few potholes this first month, but as I've said before, anything worthwhile requires (at least some) effort. I have a few rough edges of my own I'm hoping to iron out in the coming months, but these are minor changes that I want to do for me. Sometimes it helps having someone around to help you get a clearer picture of who you want to be (and there is always room for improvement I have found).

We do laugh and laugh. I think that's the best part of our relationship. There was one time when we were being "naughty" and we just got the giggles and so I'm on my bed crying laughing holding a pillow over my face screaming, "I can't breathe! I can't breathe! AHHAHAHAAAA" begging him to shut UP! LOL :)

Thanks to those that have read this blog and have wished us luck. He is definitely "the One" for me. And I think I have made it clear to him that I'm in this one 150%. And you know what...I think it's the same for him :)

He even helped out this past weekend do a little landscaping in my HUGE (tongue in cheek) yard. The open soil there now has some ivy that I hope to cultivate up the fence. I may grab some trellis material to frame out that area and add some outdoor lights inside the ivy. know they say the family that can work (outdoors in 100+ degree heat) together can stay together! :) We event went to "Homo-Depot" together. It was nice to be out and about like all the other gay couples! LOL :)
