R, don't ever feel like you can't post your joy. We all have bad days sometimes, and if any of us feel like we can't handle a post, we can choose to overlook it. ....the title would have given it away. LOL.


I'm soooo glad you two had another great time with each other. I love reading your updates because you have been wanting this for so long, and now you have it. I couldn't be happier for you. He cracks me up, too. I think BOTH of you (not just him as you are always pointing out), are loads of fun and it seems like neither of you know a stranger. Good, good trait to have. The two of you really hit it off and seem perfect for each other.


I'm sorry you missed your doggy-thon. I know how much you were looking forward to that. HC made a good point about her possibly needing you so badly bc of it being FD weekend.


You were definitely lit up in the pictures. LOL. :)


I'm THRILLED that Averey is meeting HC for the first time. Woooooooot! You KNOW you better post an update to that one. (And for the record, WHY wasn't I invited to the party????)

I agree. You and HC must get along so well because you're so much alike. I always look forward to your posts, whether they're joyous, which they usually are or not.

When did you live in Africa? Which country? Were you there in a medical capacity, like with Doctors Without Borders? Just curious.

I cracked up at the friend's comment. You can always count on kids to come out & say things directly, whether you really want them to or not. I bet Ave will probably be relieved when she meets HC cause now he's like a big mystery, and then she will see that he's a nice guy.

Thanks Honey. I just felt bad b/c there seemed to all of a sudden be so many break-ups or issues.


I love how he does these little funny things. We went & got him a beach sticker for my beach, as a "2nd resident sticker" for my household. We werent going to the beach, but once they put it on his car (across the street from the beach enterance is a tent where you bring your car & they put it right on your window), he started to drive towards the enterance to the lot. I said "What are you doing?" & he siad "I want to see if it works". lol

I lived there for 6 months in 1897. Then went back in 1988 b/c i fell in love with Kenya, & then went to Tanzania & climbed Mt. Kilimajaro. It began as a 10 week international studies program ... but then I never left, lol. Its an incredible country - the people, the music, the culture - I once heard the saying that "Africa gets into your blood" & its true. Much of who I "am" was formed because of my experiences there.

I love this post. It actually has you co parenting -dont freak! I think he was right in his advice too and you were open and strong enough to take it. The two of you truly are a great match. When he does meet Ave, it is going to go great - I can just feel it.
