#100BlogPosts - Post # 5: Is He Flirting? (Don't Be Weird)

     If you know me then you know that I don't get males. Like at ALL! They are so weird to me and that's coming from someone who grew up with 2 brothers and is now raising 2 sons. I mean I get along with them...some of my best friends are male (ha); but when it comes to romance with the opposite sex and I am completely lost. So let me ask you guys what you think.
     So there's this guy that I kind of sort of know and I think he likes me OR he thinks I like him and finds it humorous.  I can be very friendly and playful (usually out of nervousness/shyness) when I meet a person and I guess that can be mistaken for flirtation but I don't think I've been that nice to him. I hardly ever see him. But when I do see him, if he's with this one friend in particular they act really strange together.

     For example, they once approached me about nothing. That sounds weird because it is weird. They came to my job (a public library) and seemingly forced a conversation with me. My face tells everything so of course I was looking like "wth is wrong with you dweebs"  but my mind was reeling. At the time I wasn't thinking "oh, he likes you" it was afterwards when I was still trying to figure out if I missed something that the thought occurred to me.

     There was another time when the friend wanted me to know that someone was coming to the library to meet him and I was like ..."okay" He was all "I'm not telling you who it'll see when he gets here" and then the guy came in and I was like "oh......ooooooooh" With those 2 incidents and a few things in between (that I can't post because what if one of them reads my blog? I don't know who reads but somebody is reading and I can't risk it aaaaaaaaack) I thought I had it all figured out. So I kind of, sort of tried to engage in friendly banter with him but he wouldn't even look at me. He just kind of smiled and dismissed himself (to the restroom). Dude what? I'm not intimidatingly gorgeous or off putting in behavior (or at least I don't think I'm giving negative body signals) so why wouldn't he just ask for my number?  When guys do this I always think it's a little cute at first but then I start to think the guy is a wuss and I don't like him anymore. But I don't even know if I like this guy. He seems nice enough but I don't know...Oh well this why I always say I live in the Twilight Zone.

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 

Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 

Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …

This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.

Even though the scale didn't move much I do have so…
