A Love Story...


Admitting faults isn't my strong suit...I'll admit I'm not perfect and I'm at fault...but beyond that you won’t get much….and I know exactly why that is…and I verbalized it for the first time ever just last night…and you can thank The Officer for that…he’s amazing…and this is why…
When I moved I didn’t plan on dating…anyone. I had come to terms with my life and made the decision that E was my life…and I would devote every part of my being to just being his mom….being the best mom and dad that any single mom could be. I made that decision before I even moved…and I think I’ve done a great job….E is a happy and healthy little guy…and I don’t want to pat myself on the back too much…but I think I had a lot to do with that…just me. So when I moved and people wanted to set me up I just kind of blew it off. PLUS I was “talking” to B…so I paid no attention to anyone else besides E. So when things tapered off with B I just assumed I could go back to being just mom....nope, the match-makers shifted into full gear and I got set up…on a blind date….at a Fish and Wildlife Banquet…really?!?!?! I am by no means a “city girl”…but I’m not exactly the outdoorsy type either! So I didn’t want to go…and I had no intentions of going. I came up with every excuse in the book too….but The Realtor wasn’t about to let me out of it…and when she told me how much he had spent on the tickets I felt guilty and decided to go…on a side note I found out he spends the money on the tickets every year and just never goes…yup, I was duped.
Anyway, I went and had a good time. It was a group date….The Realtor and The Investigator came, as well as The Sheriff and The Ranger. And thank Heaven’s they did…The Officer barely spoke to me! Ha! But it was a good time….he was very attentive and courteous and made me feel like I belonged there…and it helped that he was cute ;-)
E was with a sitter…and I hate getting him a sitter…I never know if he’s going to be okay with anyone other than me…and SURPRISE he’s completely fine without me. But I had the sitter there at 5 so we all could meet up and head to the banquet. I was told it wouldn’t be long either….then as 9 is rolling around I started to get nervous and I really wanted to get home to E….so The Officer offered to drive me to my car so I could go home and make sure E got to bed...that scored points.
So, we get to my car and he asks for my number…and although my initial thought was “heck no…I don’t date” I figured, “Eh what’s the harm…he’ll give up eventually”…so I gave it to him. I didn’t expect to hear from him for at least a couple days….boy was I wrong…

To be continued…
