I forgot to write last weekend - I think I was busy somebody, but it's weird that I didn't think about it.  I got to go visit my niece and nephew yesterday.  I think I was covered in baby snot by the time I left, but it was still great to see the kids.  My nephew is so sweet and cuddly - even when he's not sick.  We wrestled a bunch, too.  My niece asked if I was going to spend the night and then kept asking why I wasn't going, too, which was gratifying.  Babies are just great, aren't they?

Here's a picture of my niece and me from a couple of weeks ago:

Easy on the Eyes

Last night was the ex-boy's reception, so I made sure to go out of town for the weekend in order to avoid it.  I spent Friday night with one of my former roommates, which was nice, as always.  Yesterday I spent most of the day with my sister and her kids.  It was my sister's anniversary, so I baby-sat for awhile, too.  My nephew was sick, so he was cuddly and spent a lot of time just laying against my chest, which was sweet (although sad that he was feeling so unwell), but he also seemed to not want to swallow his spit, or something, so he kept ejecting it, meaning that I ended up with a lot of baby spit on me.  Then I substitute taught a children's Sunday school class today; I hope I didn't start a little epidemic in my congregation.

Besides seeing the kids, which is always a highlight for me, I had a date yesterday morning.  I think it was a really nice blessing to have a date on this particular weekend.  There's this guy who I have never met in person who was going to be down relatively near my sister's place, and he and I met up for breakfast (He had to catch his flight back home yesterday morning, too.).  I didn't feel any sparks, but it was a pleasant breakfast and a nice way to start the day (even though I do not love getting up early).  Definitely one of the better-looking guys that I've been out with - tall, dark, handsome, deep voice, masculine build.  :)  The odds that I will see him again aren't good, but it's nice to go out sometimes, and, as I already said, it was especially nice this weekend.

So the boy and my friend are getting married in just over a day.  I feel a little more affected by it than I would like, but that's how it is, I guess.  I made a goal to get rid of a gift from him before the wedding, and I still haven't done it, so tomorrow is the day.  Then there will be one less thing to remind me of us.  Fortunately, I have plans Tuesday evening (They just happened; I didn't make them on purpose.), so hopefully I will be good and distracted.  In the words of a friend, "You silly girl!"
