So I went from being a 30-something empty-nester to being bombarded by loads of family! My parents finally came back from Nicaragua and even though I really wanted them to come back and take care of their own crap, they are now driving me nuts. Surprise! Yea, I don't think anyone is. It just seems like the older they get, the needier they become. On Monday, my aunt came in to visit for one month from Nicaragua and on Tuesday, my sister, her husband and the two rugrats flew in for a week. I guess I'm lucky because at least I have my apartment to escape to at night.

So needless to say this week is a bombardment of family. I'll be spending most of my evenings in South City and even took Friday off so I can go down to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Yay! I love it down there so I'm really looking forward to it.

Hmmm, my last post was April 13, 2007. That should tell you a lot. I haven't really had the heart to write lately...whether it be blog or just plain email. Sometimes it feels like I expend a lot of energy doing so and I don't get things done like housework, stitching or just plain relaxing.

Last I wrote, I met this guy and things seemed to be going well. That ended last month after much thought and deliberation...and counsel from friends! It all came to not being satisfied or happy in the relationship. It's not worth staying if you're not happy even if you don't want to go back to being *single* again so soon. So I'm back to being single and back to being on Match which is always this adventure and challenge for me. In the last month and a half, I've met two guys. One drove me nuts since he kept on saying I may as well be a Marina girl. He may think that's funny but he may as well have slapped me in the face. I detest the Marina and the very essence of it. The guys in their *uniform* and the gold-digging girls waiting to dig their claws into a man that can keep them in Manolos. I am NOT a Marina chick. So he got crossed off the list quick! The next guy was nice if not a little intimidating with his intense fitness regime. He didn't set my blood electric or anything but I suppose he's worth a second chance. And there's the mish mosh of other guys that I'm emailing at the moment. Sadly, no one is really intriguing me so much that I'm just *dying* to meet them. At the moment, it's just a way to pass the time and be social.

I have already had to block a psycho guy in the short time I've been back on Match. Nice! But at least it's better for the psycho-ness to happen behind the safety of my computer screen instead of in person...because then, that would be scary! But I don't feel very comfortable when some guy emails me multiple times a day especially when I'm not encouraging such emails with a response. And I am hardly comforted by the fact that he is ex-military and works for the Department of Defense. And the constant emails, requests for phone calls and hyped up military background did have the good concrete beginnings for some Lifetime movie as a friend of mine commented. So I just had to block him and am thankful that I didn't divulge anything to him that would make it possible to track me down.

In the spare time I've managed to scrounge up, I am stitching like crazy! I've finished Halloween Fairy and will post her picture soon once I figure out how my digital camera uploads pictures! I've started another project which is the Christmas Fairy and I promise to be better about showing progress pictures on her too.

So all in all...things are good
