I had a wonderful and productive weekend. I had a few client meetings and got to spend tons of alone time with Mr. RFA. It was actually the perfect weekend. He and I tried a new resteraunt on Saturday night called Hattie's. I had previously heard great things about it, but it was never on my radar. My honey apparently heard about it, too, and decided to surprise me by planning a date night all by himself.
I started a new swim class last week. It similar to one I took back in 2011 that works on conditioning, technique, and speed. We've only met twice so far, and already I feel like a better swimmer. I really value swim classes. Funny thing to note about the class is that I'm the only woman. That has never happened. And, I'll have to say I'm one of the better swimmers. That made me feel good.
Mr. RFA said he'd complete a triathlon with me in May only if I'm not pregnant. Oh yeah, he also said he forbids me to do one if I'm pregnant. I think that's nonsense. I would only be a few months at that point - 4 at the most. I'll cross that bridge when we get to it. I'm sure I'd do whatever he said - those are good problems to have. :)
One of my friends told me she was in a relationship with a woman. This is one of my bestfriends, and I've never known her to be gay, curious, or anything else of the sort. She told me this news back in September after keeping it from me for a month. She knew I'd still love her, but there was some fear of reaction. I knew she was afraid, so I provided a gentle response. I've thought about this new "lifestyle" she's leading very often since finding out. I'm having a hard time making sense of any of it. I have no problem with homosexuality, but I have a problem when people enter homosexual relationships and they aren't really gay. I think it makes things that much more difficult for those who are really gay. And, not just that, she has a daughter. I'm worried what her daughter is thinking, feeling, etc. I keep asking questions. I'm worried for my friend and the consequences of her decision.
My granny has been juicing for almost 6 months now and she loves it. She feels better and seems happier in general. She juices every morning and loves telling people about the benefits. Sometimes I have to ask, "who is this woman?" Were swaping juicing recipes yesterday and in the middle of the conversation I told her how proud I am of her. She responded, "Thank you, chile (child)...I sholl (sure) don't want nobody wipin' my behind and having to take care of me." She cracks me up!
I feel some sense of relief now that Mr. RFA and I have decided that we will remain in our current house for the next 4 years. I was going crazy trying to figure out exactly where we would move. Now I can delay the process for another year before I start to get consumed again.
I got a call this morning from Citi Bank in Washington, DC. I opened an account with them when I lived in DC. I totally and completely forgot about any such account. Well apparently they have been trying to contact me to let me know that they have categorized my account as abandoned and I need to claim my property otherwise it will go to the District of Columbia and I'll have to claim it from them. I'm still trying to understand what in the world I was doing for the past 5 years that made me forget I had $590.87 sitting somewhere. I thank God for the blessing, though!
That's all for now!
