My Start to 2012

January 23, 2012 at 4:24 pm (dating, life) (, , , , )

My start to 2012 was a bit of a roller coaster, which is why I haven’t posted in a while. After midnight on new years eve, I started talking with that guy I met at the bar on Christmas day. He told me about himself and there was lots of flirting. Then at 4am, yes I said 4am, the bar was closing. This guy offered to take me home. I being a bit intoxicated didn’t tell my older brother and sis-in-law that I had a ride home. I thought they were also leaving. The guy drove me home and we sat in my parents’ driveway making out, which is all that happened. We were stopped by my brother knocking on the window. He was worried about me. With that I got out of the car and headed into my parents’ house. My dad was pretty upset that no one can find me. but by morning all was forgiven. I am still in touch with that guy and hopefully will see him when I go back home.

Then a couple of weeks ago, some of my clothes were stolen from the laundry room. I think I know who did it but I can’t prove it. Still upset about it but that is nothing compared to what happened a couple days later, I got a call from my mom saying my uncle passed away suddenly. It was sudden as he was very healthy. I had just chatted with him the week earlier about my upcoming trip to Las Vegas for my birthday. I was going to spend the last day hanging with him and my cousins. We were both very excited about it. I was in shock when my mom told me the news, I didn’t cry because I didn’t want to believe it was true. He was a great man and will be dearly missed. We know though that he is making his way back to my aunt who passed away five years ago.

Last week my mom called me and told me that my oldest brother was taken to the hospital. They thought it was a heart attack but after testing they ruled that out. He does have something in his neck and back that is hereditary and they doctors are trying to talk him into back surgery. My brother is now back home which is great news.

Then my little brother got news that his ex, my nephew’s mother, went crazy at the hospital. It always worries us when this happens but everything is okay and my nephew is safe.

It has been a lot to handle but I am making it through and have some great friends.

First sleepover…

…well sort of.

Since the man was sick on Monday we planned a date for Thursday night. In planning our date, I suggested a sleepover and he said it would be a good idea. I was excited after three months of dating we were having our first sleepover. (As I have said before we are taking things very slow. )

He was bringing over stuff to make pancakes for dinner (yes we love breakfast for dinner), the DVDs I got him for his birthday and Christmas, as well as my Christmas gifts. When he showed up he had boxes and his overnight bag. He started making the pancakes and as we were eating he handed me my presents and I loved them all. After dinner we cuddled on the bed and watched the DVDs. As the night went on we got intimate with each other and were having a great night.

Then it got late and we figured we should get some sleep. He had to take out his contacts and when looking for his contact stuff and glasses he realized he left them at home. Since he can’t see without either he had to go home. Granted we did get to spend a lot of time together, I just was a little down. I was looking forward to waking up next to him. He did apologize and I could tell he felt bad. He even said he was looking forward to the morning as well. As he was leaving he left the stuff to make the pancakes as well as some mail he brought over. When he got home he texted me and I let him know that he left his stuff here. He said he would be back in the near future to get them. We texted a bit the next morning and wished each other happy new year.

No we did not spend the holiday together. A couple of days before I had suggested we do something for New Years Eve but he told me he was going to be going to various friends’ houses and we didn’t talk about it again.

Though I was a little down about him having to leave the night of our sleepover and not spending the new years together, it confirmed even more that I need to take things slow with this one. Not sure what will happen in the new year but I have a feeling it will be good.

Hope everyone had a great holiday!
