I am waiting for my ride - a guy who I've known for 26 yrs and normally would be too afraid to call him at his g/f's place. But not today. I chatted with her and asked for him. First time, LOL. Instead of going to work (I quit my second job, life is too short) I am heading to a softball tournament.

As I wait, I am practising my violin. I bought one yesterday :) Something I've always wanted to do. Well, I wanted to learn the piano but I have some strange desire to play violin. Turns out my grandfather (who, family legend has it gave his life for mine!) played the violin VERY well.

And I can't help but think how I've changed since my trip to Hawaii. I have more confidence, I am happier. I am prettier (I am dressing up much more now and even use hair product!!! Lots of good hair days, these days). Other subtle things have changed too - like last night I passed on going out to the bar and came home to a good book. I'm babysitting my nephew tonight instead of going out w/my gfs. I love him so much - I've never been this baby crazy before in my life! Him and I just have this connection. He never cries for me (generally a good natured baby) and he starts telling me his baby stories as soon as he hears my voice (he can't talk but he thinks he can). Its an awesome feeling when you say a baby's name and he laughs for you everytime...

Ah. Sigh. I feel great today.

Hope you all are having a fantastic day too!!!!!!! Sending you all my positive energy and thoughts...

Go.

Glad you had a great day, Go! The violin? Wow. I got this mental picture..kind of amusing..hehe. I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I feel too old. Maybe if I run into some extra money, I could look into lessons.
