First Post!!!

Well, this is the first post I am making. If you have read my profile, you would know that I am recently divorced. To bring everyone up to speed, I will give a brief overview of what has happened since then.

After my divorce, actually before it was final, I moved in with a friend for a few months. Things went very well there, but I had to have my own place so that I could have my boys over on the weekends. In December, I rented my own apartment in a brand new complex. The place is great, 2 swimming pools which my kids love, weight and workout room, underground parking, steam room, hot tub, and one of my requirements when looking for a new place, washer and drying in the unit. The main thing that attracked me to this place was the people that run it. They are very nice and worked well with me to get moved in. Actually, the apartment that I wanted, 1 bdrm with a den, was not available at the time. I had to wait until that 2nd building was finished to move into that unit. So in the meantime, they let me rent a single bedroom until the other was finished. When moving from on to the other, I had a friend over to help move the big stuff. I have a sofa with a hide-away bed, which is heavy and ackward to move. We were carring it outside and had to go up to the 3rd floor. The person who runs the place saw us, and offered to help. We turned him down initially, then he went over to the construction crew who are working on the 3rd building and they came over with a loader. We put my sofa on that, they lifted it up to my new deck and save us the suffering of hauling that thing up the stairs.

As far as women in my life right now, things are rather scarce. One is in the works right now, more on that in a bit. I have seen a few others, but nothing earth shattering. The ones that I did see more than once have just been for sex. (At least I am good at something.) The one girl whom I currently see, I met on a singles cruise I went on last Oct. Actually she came with us, but I did not know here before we left. I had planned on going with a group of guys on this singles cruise, but one backed out the week before we left. One of my friends was going around work asking anyone if they wanted to go. She accepted, and that is where we met. The bad thing is that we didn't really get together until about the 4th day. By that time I had already put myself in a hole by having a few one night stands on the boat. The worst part is that she knew all about everything that had happened. She seemed to be pretty cool about the subject, and understood that at the time, a little female company was all I was looking for. After the 4th night, we did sleep in the same bed every night, but never did anything. She said she was not interested in a one night stand, and seeing that she lived close to me, and I knew I could see her again if I wanted, I was OK with that. We dated for about 4 months, and then I broke it off. Why I didn't really know at the time, but now I think it was mostly because she scared me. I actually liked her a lot, but I didn't know where it was going and if I was even ready for anything serious yet. Met a few women after that, but nothing substantial. Then the girl I met on the cruise moved to the same city that I currently live in. We have gotten back together, but she understands that I am not sure how much I can commit to everthing. Right now we are taking it slow. I see her about once a week, and we usually end up in the sack.

Softball season has started. I currently play on a team that has won our league for the last 3 years. Everytime you win, you must move up to a higher division. We started on Mon. nights, and are now playing on Thurs. nights, which is the highest division we have here. Things haven't gone real well so far. We are 2-2, but have not played as well as we could. Everything is inconsistant right now, we hit one game, then not the next. Play good D, then suck the next game. Hopefully now that we have 2 weeks under our belt, everything will get back to normal. I don't expect to win this league, but I just want to at least play the way I know we are capable of playing. If we lose playing well, I can deal with that.

Warmer weather is just around the corner, and I can't wait. I hate cold weather, which really makes me wonder why I live in this wasteland. If I could find a job down south, I would move in a heartbeat. Summer is my favorite time of year, and I am really looking forward to some good times.

Well, I can't think of anything more to update everyone on right now, but as things come up along the way, I will try to make sure everyone has the backgound on the situation.

Take care!!
