My Dream Job

Doors are opening and life is incredible

I have been offered my dream job

and I am very excited about it. 

Of course there is so much going on right now

that it is difficult for others to get excited

with me, 

when his car was totaled by his nephew

the night before I got the job offer. 

So I have been doing the happy dance for 

over 5 days, and getting more excited by the minute.

I will be moving back to the Alamo City

and I am excited about that

My Man says he will be moving with me

as was the plan regardless of where my next job took me.

I have been cautious and not certain he will move.

However, the last few days, with our trip to meet 

his family (parents, siblings, youngest daughter)

in a very fine Yankee State full of history of our nation, 

looming and the excitement growing

he has talked of not much else but our move.

His spirits are high, and so are mine.

Have I told you I got my dream job?

Have I told you how excited I am?

Now I have to go pack for our two week 

trip "home" to yankeeville.

Men, Sand and Oceans

I try my best to understand men.

Especially the one I have in my life. 

Just when I think I have a handle on it

He makes it clear I am mistaken

What I know and understand about men

in general, not just one man

could easily fill a grain of sand

with no overflow or spillage.

What I don't understand about men

is as wide and deep as the Ocean Blue.

Why do you write things in third person?

So you can say you didn't mean you?

Why do you lash out, apologize and then let us stew

and say you apologized so it is done, finished, over?

When I am still reeling and hurt, and the apology was like

a side note. 

I really don't understand.

How do I believe you love me

when you say I think too much

and I ask too many questions

and you aren't always in the mood to kiss. 

I do that, when with a guy I don't really love

and have to muster the strength to stand a kiss.

I ask questions to better understand you.

I think of everything going on and the paths it can all take

because I want to be prepared. 

Prepared to respond positively in any situation, 

and if caught off guard, I won't be. 

Yes, that ocean of MeNotUnderstandingMen

is a vast, wild body of water

and I am not sure I will ever sail it's waters 

from the IWantToKnow Shore to the 

ShoreOf Understanding

but I have the determination to put my skiff in the water

and hope the sea doesn't swallow me up.
