Hi all,

Well the board seems so quiet lately I thought I'd post another update on me and Lloyd and see what that might stir up! ;o)

Anyway - he was out of town all last week (vacation to Florida to visit family) and before the trip he'd been talking about maybe moving back home and how his former chief at the firestation down in FL offered him his old job back. Pretty much I thought "well that's it, he's gonna move back to FL and that'll be the end of things ...".

But he came back and instead, renewed his lease on his apartment ... now of course it might have been for many reasons (like his daughter lives here, the weather in colorado is much nicer, etc) and absolutely nothing to do with me ... but it seems he's also not ready to chuck in the towel with me yet either.

I went over to see him last night and he gave me a big hug and kiss hello and asked if I'd missed him (awww). We talked for a couple of hours catching each other up on each other's weeks and such and I stayed the night (it is an hours drive and it was getting late, so you know ... ;o).

Tonight he's off shooting pool with his buddies which is cool - I have some things around the house I need to do. I'm a big believer that even when your dating someone you need to live your own lives seperately sometimes. Although it was nice to sleep next to him every night the first week. I had missed that since I broke off my long-term relationship several years ago.

So, so far so good. Still no major expectations on my part but I think if I let myself I could totally fall for him. I won't let myself though until I know he's falling too - which of course may not happen and I'll deal with that when the time comes.

Gabi, I am really glad to see things are still going so well with you and Lloyd. He has not only his daughter to stay for, and I really feel like Lloyd might be staying for a certain someone as well. giggles. WEll, keep it up and let us know how things go.
