Phone call Update

I decided to make the call mid-afternoon Tuesday, as we had a busy day ahead of us - I had to pick up my son and start bailing out my leaking basement again!

So I called Rob's cell number, but there was no answer. I thought I would get a chance to call him later in the evening at home - but we didn't finish with the basement till 10:30!

So I emailed Rob back Tuesday night, telling him that I had hoped to call him, but had a hectic day, and ran out of time. I told him I would love to get together for coffee, and suggested Thursday evening. And if not, perhaps I would see him at the dance on Friday evening, and that I looked forward to dancing with him again.

Then I gave him my phone number so he could call me! So now it's in his hands... {smile}

Since he was at the concert last night, I took the opportunity to drive by his neighbourhood. I didn't go down the street, because of my personalized plates, but I got a good look as I drove by slowly. I think you can tell a lot about a person by where he chooses to live. Plus there are some really run-down parts of town, and I wanted to know if that was where he lived up front.

Well, it was the midst of suburbia! Mini-vans, SUVs in the driveway, children playing in the street, parents chatting on the lawns. It all looked so close, buddy-buddy, everybody knows everybody's business type of neighbourhood ... everything I hate! {smile}

I drove by thinking... Oh Rob, do you really want to bring this "wild woman" into the midst of all this!?!?

Catherine, honey....do not tell Rob you drove by his house. lol If you do he might think you are a loon girl. lol I know how it is though, you wanna know this stuff. For future reference, driving by guy's homes is a bad idea unless invited. Anywho. I wish you the best with him and hope he calls. WOO HOO!!

Ah, but you see I had a legitimate excuse! My son lives down that way, and I had to pass Rob's street to get to where I was going. Honest! {smile}

I didn't go down his street, just looked down the street as we drove by. So I didn't go past his house, just his neighbourhood...

But no, I wouldn't want him to know I was checking him out! {laughing!}

Well, I think so! {grin}

He is taller than me, so probably 5'10" - 5'11"? His hair is thick, full and completely white, about collar length. I think the white hair makes him look distinguished. He was wearing a dark blue ultra-suede shirt (it was so soft), and blue jeans. When I watched him across the room at first, I thought he looked English - not sure if anyone knows what I mean? He is slim to average, with broad shoulders. He has nice full lips... {smile}

There was defintely a huge attraction for me. Being in his arms had such a natural feel to it. The hardest part of dancing with him was that I kept feeling like I just wanted to melt into him, nearly laying my head on his shoulder a few times! So I was tense, keeping myself alert, resisting that urge. I am a real touch-me-not, even with my kids, so it was strange that this pull was so strong with him.

I can't wait to see him tonight, to see if it was all just raging hormones, or if it actually has something to do with him...
