Wastin' Time

Okay, I created myself an avatar during my marathon computer session.

Angry, Very Angry in Dania Beach

Well, I'm home tonight trying to keep myself occupied. Luckily I just started school yesterday so I have been busy reading and doing assignments because last night I found out that my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years, who has told me all along that he was divorced, isn't.

Last night he asked me to look up a case number for him on a ticket he had gotten for keeping a fish he caught that was too small. I found the case number but not too much information so he asked me, "Is that all you can find?" So I began to delve deeper into the website looking under his name and such and found some legal documents having to do with the sale of his home, etc. and kept noticing that they all mentioned him as a married man. So I kept questioning him, thinking it was strange because the documents were very recent. I won't go into the entire story but after becoming more and more convinced that he was still married and believing his denials less and less, he finally admitted that he was still married. As you can imagine, I was furious, told him off, hung up on him and haven't spoken to him since.

I have brought the fact of him being divorced up to him a few times during the course of the relationship and he has ALWAYS insisted that, "of course" he was divorced and "why would you even question me about it?". Well, now I know why I felt the need to question him.

I feel like such an idiot. I believed this man for all this time and have conversed with his WIFE (thinking she was his ex-wife) many times. I even went out and bought a purse for her that she really wanted after seeing mine. This is such a blow. As much as I love this man I have always had reservations, such as he wanted me to live with him (in the house he bought in he and his wife's name. Ugh.) and I always hesitated for many reasons, but now I see that it was for the best. Somehow I guess I knew something wasn't right.

But, like I said, I'm trying to keep myself entertained. This quiz is probably the first of many online timewasters I'll take part in tonight.

Chia, Weezy, Tony Pictures

Originally I started this blog to post pictures of my knitting projects. Since I don't seem to take a lot of pictures of my knitting projects (yet) I'm posting some recent pictures of my animals, just for a little interest.

This is my new pug, Chia. She did belong to my boyfriend but she didn't like him very much. My boyfriend is very loud and they weren't bonding, so he was going to give her to my boss, but when my boss saw her he didn't want her. I don't understand how you can look at that face and not want her!! Is she the cutest thing, or what? And she's SO good!! She's really funny. I couldn't love her more.

My pit bull, Weezy, has the patience of a saint because although Chia doesn't annoy me, she continually "tries" Weezy. I mean she NEVER leaves her alone. Here she is in action.

And speaking of my pit bull. Here's a picture of Weezy in her rasta hat on Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, when I got my box of decorations out I found this wig. I've had it for years and it's always good for some laughs. Here's my son with it on. If you knew what he looked like without it on, you'd be laughing too. Way funny.

August, September, October

Since I haven't written anything since July I figured I'd take a few minutes and do a quick update.

Tony got his high school diploma and is working as a waiter at the Moonlite Diner. YEA!!! I love that kid/man!!

I'm still with Robbie and we're getting along pretty well!! He moved to Royal Palm Beach about two months ago and we really only see each other on the weekends so maybe that's why. Whatever it is, it's working. Things are good. He bought a Rottweiler puppy named Rocko and a baby Chinese miniature pot-bellied pig named Pugsley. Both are very cute. He wasn't bonding with his pug, Chia, so I now have her and I love her to death!! She is about as cute as they come!!

Robbie and I took his kids to Disneyworld and Animal Kingdom last month. That was alot of fun ... we definitely had some good laughs on that trip. Two weeks later Robbie and I went to Universal Horror Nights and went through EVERY single haunted house which I never thought I'd do. I'm usually very scared, but it was fun!!

I got my orange blossom tattoo finished in August. My tattoo artist, Dee Dee, does SUCH pretty tattoos. It looks awesome and I love having a tattoo on the top of my arm ... almost makes me want to do a partial sleeve. We'll see.

What else?

I'm starting online college classes to get an AA in Microcomputer Applications.

I'm a fanatic for computer Scrabble and am up to the Pro Level which, to me, is quite impressive.

I'm still knitting, although not as much as I used to ... see above paragraph for a partial explanation of why. I do continue to work on my sister's wrap and Tony's afghan though. My sister's wrap has been discouraging because I've messed up on it a few times and it makes me very frustrated. I think once I'm done with her wrap I'll be back on a knitting roll. Right now I feel pressure to get hers done in time for Christmas.

Robbie and I went out this past Friday for my sister's 52nd birthday at Jazzits at Hard Rock. Her girlfriend, also named Christine, surprised her and flew down from Minneapolis for the festivities. Tom, Peter, Logan and my mom were also there. I had an awesome orange martini, sesame crusted seared tuna and pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Good stuff.
