People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

I had a fun weekend filled with shopping. Yep, that’s about all I did for my long holiday weekend. It was so great to spend time with my mom and a little with my dad as well. I needed a little family time and as I like to remember, shopping is “retail therapy.” I know I always feel a little better after spending some money. I currently live with my parents because the house I own is unoccupied in Southern Utah, so we’ve been redecorating the house. Home décor is one of my favorite things to shop for. We had a lot of fun and went all over the place. As it turns out however, there are not a lot of single, available men in these types of stores. If there were one, I think I’d marry him on the spot, but most of the men there have been dragged out by their wives. No good for me. Even still, I had a fabulous time.

The weekend is over now and as reality sets back in, I realize that I am in somewhat of a rut. I have no prospects for future dates and no hope for any kind of relationship with the previous four. Where is #5?? Seriously, sometimes I think that finding one date is as hard as trying to find Waldo. I guess the mingle after institute tonight is my best bet at finding the one who might become #5. It’s always worth another shot. This time…more courage! I HAVE to put myself out there and force myself to speak to strange men. Or normal men more preferably, that I have not yet met. I’m posting this on here so that I will do it. I can’t just make a goal in my mind…I have to be accountable, so make me accountable! This process is about taking chances…there is no room to sit back and be a spectator in this process. If I want things to happen in my life, I have to make them happen. I heard a commercial on the radio earlier that said something like, “tired of the way you look? Then do something about it.” To myself I said, “tired of your single status? Then do something about it.” In preparation, I have been studying up on expert advice and hoping for the best tonight. I’ll make sure to post an update tomorrow!
