It's just another ordinary miracle today...

My world is, for the moment, calm. Just dealing with the little everyday dramas that the working Moms of the world deal with everyday. No more, no less. Thankfully, also being the mother of an addict, I have nothing to report on that front.

The Prince seems to be doing OK. He is still working full-time. He called this morning asking if he had his own skis, as he was planning a ski trip in January with his girlfriend and some other couples. Planning a ski trip!!! Like a normal child! (I know I know, normal is relative) But still, it just made me feel good to hear him making plans to do something constructive.

I offered to borrow a set of skis from the man I am seeing, as he used to be an avid skier. The Prince graciously declined my offer, as he did not want to borrow some one elses skis in case something happened to them. Could this be... Responsible thinking??

As the summer days blended quietly into autumn, I have found myself spending more and more time with the new guy. Things are mostly good, and we are becoming rather comfortable together. Comfort finds me wanting to cook for him, and alot more nights on the couch watching movies and eating junk food. Comfort has me wearing my fat jeans to the office today as my normal work clothes seem to be shrinking at an alarming rate. I have always had body image issues and this is not good for me. Imagine my horror when my office mate told me yesterday that I was looking curvy and that I should maybe think up upgrading my clothing size!! Today, as she walked behind me back up the stairs after a fire drill, she whispered to me that she was going to start calling me "Big Butt". She tried to back it up, like now I finally have a butt and it looks good etc. But really? Who says these kinds of things? And now it could well make me not enjoy the amazing cheese fondue I have planned for tonight....

Like you said..who says those kind of things. Some people just have to hear themselves talk. Surely she has a flaw you might point out to her.

Big butt is a compliment... seriously! Be proud of the curves.

Kel, I have not been to your blog recently--I don't think? Yeah, right! "I don't THINK." that's the truth!

However, it IS a pleasure to read quite a few today--such as your own--whch display a certain dgree of, well...serenity? Can I say "Peace?" It is more than "comfort" I'm detecting. It is good. And I'll vote for it...if my vote counts.

Your boy sounds as if he is growing up. I can't comment much about the comments of the woman at the office but it sounds a bit catty to me.

You'd be surprised how many people say such stupid, insensitive things and don't have the slightest idea that they're being insulting.

Just classify under the ever-expanding "Proof That People Are Stupid" category.

whenever a woman says something like that to me, I (whisper) point at my wedding ring and say sorry-I'm married....cuz I'm mean like that ;)

Ignore your co-worker.
I'm just happy to hear a little letting go between the lines here.
Happy couch snuggling.

Just reading that people talk like that irkes me a bit - I want to come to your defense - its the codie in me - but i suspect you can take care of yourself and that you already are well aware the woman was a flake for openly talking before ingaging her mind.

Yo tell that bitch to mind her own fucking body. What does she want to fuck you? Is that why shes watching your fucking curves so hard for?
Yo fuck her, you dont need ANYONE telling you how you look. YOU know you look good and THATS THAT!!
As long as your man likes you and you like you thats ALL that counts.

I'm really glad to hear about the ski trip, thats a really cool thing.
Always wanted to go skiing but never got around to it.
Maybe he is trying to be responsible and not want anything to happen to the other persons skis?
I think thats a great thing and I hope things keep on the right path for him and you.
Stay Up!

Your office mate has a big mouth. I can't think of too many things that are less attractive. It also means her insides are probably really, really ugly.

Comfort is a blessed, blessed thing. Not the least bit boring if you have gratitude. Enjoy it. And tell your office mate maybe she should stuff her mouth with something because maybe she would look better with a curvy ass than the donkey head she is sporting.
