I’ve tried starting this blog for several hours now and for some reason, I’ve been stuck on a title. So forgive the vagueness, but it’s really just random stuff on my mind.
Did you hear about the head on train collision that happened on Sunday? You must have as it made national news. When I heard about it, I thought about the guy that worked for the railroad that I dated several years ago. It turns out that he was one of the three fatalities. We only went out for a couple of months, but it seemed to just fizzle in the end. He was the first person I dated after the first break up with Marty. While I think my feelings for Marty might have played a part in in, I think I realized that he simply wasn’t the right person. We didn’t really have a lot in common and he lived almost two hours away. But all the same, it is sad that he died. It seems he did find someone and remarried at some point so I’m glad he found someone special.
Josh and I went shopping yesterday and I bought a new swimsuit at Kohl’s in hopes that I would be encouraged to start swimming. So today I walked down to the pool, but found that the gate was locked with a bicycle lock. So no swimming. It was frustrating. Since I’m not an official homeowner, I have no means of contact for the HOA to find out if the pool is unofficially closed or if this is something a local resident did. So I’m looking into other options for swimming. I’m thinking of buying a pass where I can swimming a local community college pool. That way I can go even when the weather doesn’t permit.
Matt and I went to the movies last night and we saw Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. It was pretty depressing overall. I guess I was just hoping for a happy ending of some sort, but it didn’t happen and I didn’t really buy the relationship that supposedly developed between the two main characters. Oh well, at least Matt went with me to a chick flick. I was supposed to go to band, but rehearsal was cancelled because of a gas leak on that side of town.
