Eh, I have the guy's phone number and he said he liked to play pool. I might call him and ask him if he wants to do that. I'm just not interested in dating him. From the little bit of conversation we had on the phone, I could figure that out. I don't think he's a slimeball or anything, I just think we don't have much in common.

Tell him that's all part of it when you get to go out of town. When I homeschooled my kids we went lots of interesting places due to their father's work trips. There's always something new and interesting to learn in a new town.

I know. I love our freedom. Of course part of what he had to do tonight is because he didn't finish it last week as assigned.

It's too far this time of night. I would have to be back to take the kids to school in the morning. If I left now I'd have....about 4 hours to work?? And I need my beauty sleep.

SC, you probably need YOUR beauty sleep if you have to be in court tomorrow.

More like 5 minutes. At least that's what mine was like.

But I had to get dressed up and show up downtown and find a parking place, etc. Wait around for court to start. Wait for my lawyer to show because she had other cases that day. Took a couple of hours altogether.

I have laryngitis. When I whisper at the people, they start whispering back. It's kind of funny.

I seem to be back to (mostly) normal today. smile

I was throwing myself a big ol' pity party last night because I had to stay home from my DivorceCare group. We usually have a lot of fun. But I ended up in a long Facebook chat with a friend which cheered me right up.

I had to go to court with my cousin(who is blind) as my lawyer because of a car accident...rear ended on the freeway.

When we met with the prosecutor, he was leaning on his cane and talking to her. She was so uncomfortable that she answered all his questions while facing me. He noticed. He told me that sometimes when people find out he is blind, they talk LOUDER to him.

We both had a good laugh about it...funny how people respond to things like these.

Kurt Warner the quarteback went to pick up his date (first date) and the woman's babysitter hadn't showed. Her child had special needs. Undeterred, Kurt convinced her to bring the kid along on the first date and she did.

I believe they are still married today.

This happened to me. Sort of. One of our salesmen found out I was divorced and he wants to go out when he's in town. I told him generally during the week I have my kids so it would be impossible. He said I don't mind coming over to your house and bringing a pizza. I think that's special and I doubt you would find many men like this but I don't want to expose my kids to any man unless I'm considering an LT relationship.
