Where I am today

I went out with someone last night that I've known for several years, and one of the first things he said was - You haven't changed (aged) a bit! How is that possible? (not a direct quote, but pretty close, i think). It had been 4 years since we'd last seen each other in person.

That was a compliment... I think. I don't think I look like a freak or anything! LOL (i know he meant it as a compliment, and i took it as pleasant surprise that i didn't look old and decrepit)

When I told him I avoid the sun, I think he was surprised... he thought I just meant I work indoors. Nope. I use sunscreen, every single day (in my face lotion)... I even try to use real sunscreen if I'm going to be out for any real length of time. Or I stay in the shade. Or both. ;-)

Anyway, I don't do anything super special... and I do thank God that I have always had good skin. I try to take care of it as best I can.

On another note...while I had a good time last night, I'm still mourning the loss of what was just a few weeks ago. And I wish I didn't have to work today... I might even try to get out of here a bit early. Pensive today, and it won't likely go away on it's own.



  1. What a nice thing for him to say!I;m glad that this guy seems to be much better than your previous one. I meant to write you about him when ya'll broke up, but it got away from me.

    I also use sunscreen on my face, all the time, and I stay out of the sun as much a possible. And besides the freckles I was born with, my skin is in pretty great condition. I really think staying out of the sun is the best thing you can do.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Good luck! I hope this works for you:0)

  3. Perhaps I worded my comments poorly. I should have written, "I hope it works out for you."

    He sounds like a nice guy:0)

  4. thanks, tom. he is a nice guy.

    my problem isn't him, it's me not being ready. i don't think. might just take some more time.
