Checking In

I just looked and saw that my last post was almost 3 weeks ago. It's not because I haven't had stuff to write about, it's the exact opposite. I have too much going on and no time to write. Luckily as the end of the year comes, some committments I have will be coming to an end (including my term as President of the local chapter of my alma maters alumni association). My schedule should clear up a little bit and I am resolving now to make more time for myself in 2011.

Tonight, I am throwing my cousin a surprise birthday party. She's been through a lot in the last year, and being a recently divorced, unemployed mother of three she has had more down days than up days in her life lately. Her children are already with their respective fathers and she has no idea what's in store for her. I just hope nobody ruins it for her before she gets to the restaurant.

I'll let you know how that goes in my next post. Until then, feel free to catch me up with what's going on in your world. I'll try to catch up on your blogs in my down time today and should be back to regular posting real soon.

What Would You Do Wednesday: Starting Over

Last week, my job started their growth initiative. They brought in a new person to my department and even thought its only been a week, I can already tell she is going to be ideal for "What Would You Do Wednesday". She just got out of a 16 year marriage with her high school sweetheart and is re-entering the dating game. I already have 3 post in the hole because of her. Anyway, on to this weeks situation:

You started dating someone. Things are going slow but good. A few weeks into dating you are informed that your new interest informs you that they are going on a cruise. You're cool with it because you figure that it was something planned before the two of you started dating. Your concern is who are they going with. Do you ask? Do you wait to see if they tell you? Do you let it go, have fun while they're gone and catch up when they return?
