Wishing you courage

Obsess at home!

As an aging, reluctantly single, deadbaby mama one would think the last thing I need is the ability to test my ovarian reserve every single month all on my own. But you are crazy if you think my next day 3 will go by with using this.

No clue how this happened but I have a lunch date next week. I don't know how much of a "date" it is but it is a meal with a cutie where I suppose I should talk about things other than my dead son and absent husband. WHAT ELSE IS THERE?

I've been sick all weekend. It has been 75 hours since I have seen another human being. 50 hours of that time was a feverish blur. It's very very sad to be single when you are sick. Makes me want to move near my mom.

the only things I can think of, religion and politics, are probably next in line for things not to talk about on a first lunch date. How about where did you grow up, go to college, etc . . . that always seems to go pretty well.
Good luck!!

a lunch date -sounds interesting!

If he is creepy- you can talk about your boxing obsession!

Or, if you are hitting it off, you can talk about your boxing obsession and he will think you are hot and tough!

Food, places you'd like to visit, favorite hikes, flowers (well, i like to talk about flowers - and many of my boyfriends were tree hugging plant lovers too)

just be yourself and enjoy the new adventure. I know it is not your old dream, but it IS where YOU are now.

big hugs - and since you told us, you know you are going to have to dish!!
