merry happy joyful to you

certain holidays are more fun for me than others. I adore Christmas, I know a lot of people hate it, but I love the spirit of it. I enjoy finding a gift I know someone will love. I like all of the decorating. Plus I have super fond memories from childhood of this season.

Simply put I just like it as it makes me happy.

This year I was lucky enough to work jobs that were actually closed for the holidays(amazing)

and thus got to drive down to SD and spend some time with my family & friends.
I treasured this bit of time as life has been a bit crazy this past year. I am choosing to think of the holidays as a time for a fresh start...let's hope that 2010 has great new things in store.

hhmmm, yeah

So, in my last blog I mentioned that I created an online profile in the attempt to "put myself out there" and so far it is just amusing the heck out of me. I got the usual weird dude that was hey yumm yumm I want some (oh yeah he said that) and now a flirtatious lil 23 year old is wanting to go out. I don't know how I feel about a 15 year age gap, but the boy is kinda The main word there is boy, so young. We shall see what happens, but if nothing else it gives me a good laugh at a time when due to health crap I could use them!
I will keep you updated on the latest and greatest of my online dating adventures.

getting out there

So, I will be the first to admit that I am bad at putting myself out there as far as dating goes.
The town in which I live is extremely small and while I love my lil shangri-la the dating pool here is more like a kiddie wading pool than anything else.
Being in close proximity to a college town really doesn't help matters either as I know I am a good bit older than half the boys we will see when we head out to the bars in town.
So, just how do you get out and meet people? Well, if you are me and tired of hearing from your friends that you have been single for much too sign up on an online dating site and hope for the best.
Yes, I joined the cyber dating revolution this am.
I have tried before and all my matches were out of the area(which I was all like...HELLO, the point is to meet people near you right?)
This time I went for the free site,
There actually seems to be decent guys on there from profiles I have browsed through already. I need to find a couple of good (realistic also) pics to post and make my intro a bit longer, but I did start it.
Who knows what it could bring, but if I got a new friend or two out of it then great.
I'll keep you posted on the events that follow!
