The other day in the car Richard asked me – “Why don’t you ever write on your blog anymore?”
I couldn’t give a very good, straight answer. I don’t really know. Boredom maybe. laziness? Maybe even it started feeling intimidating when I would read other girl’s blogs and see how cool they are and I feel like mine lacks in comparison.
I started thinking though – does it matter if anyone really reads this? No.
Do I genuinely like to blog. Yes.
So… I am back!
Here are some things to catch you up on what’s been going on in my little life.
Remember my dating plan? I would say it went very well.

Maybe it’s time for me to step out on this limb and grab the fruit! In a couple of parts of my life, I just need to risk things more often!
I have always been a play-it-safe person. I have to make sure 100% that things will work out before I really try anything. Maybe I just need to climb the tree, go out on the limb and if I fall (which could happen) then I just climb again. Right??
I really like this analogy. If you want the good stuff you gotta go get it!! …. but what if I just waited under the tree, you know, in the protection and shade and let it fall when it’s ready and ripe??
Oh..no. See what I just did there! That is my problem… le sigh..
I need to stop now while I am a little ahead…
Have a great day!
P.S. I don’t have a credit for the picture. I had it saved on my computer and forgot where I got it. So if you know….let me know! Thanks!

Well…these seem to be my most popular post. Why? Beats me… maybe people find humor in my sad life. Haha… kidding! I have a great life actually. I just kind of suck at dating.
I still believe in what I said in my first post and still believe that this is the way to do it, it’s just a lot harder than it seemed to be. It somewhat overwhelmed me and I felt like I wasn’t really getting to know anyone. So, I narrowed it down and decided to NOT add anymore… well then now, I am kind of at a standstill.
I think now at this moment, I am going to take a small break, just for a while and then maybe I will try again soon.
I will promise you this though, if I ever do get married and something were to happen where I have to date again, I will not do. I actually loathe it…. Not tying to be negative, but it’s.just.so.hard. Maybe I am making it harder than it needs to be I don’t know.
Who knows… we will just see what happens!
Here is a video I found about Oklahoma City.
I help bring faculty members from all over the country (sometimes even world) into my work and I have to talk up Oklahoma all the time. This video explains why this is such a great city!!
I already know it’s great but sometimes people get ideas in their head like…
Do we live in tepees? — No. We have regular houses just like everyone else.
Do we all ride horses everywhere? – No. We have things called automobiles? Have you heard of them?
Do we have a ton of deadly tornadoes every time it storms? – No. We are NOT the only place that has tornado’s people…
There is nothing fun to do here.- You have to look! There are fun things all over the state.
We are all just a bunch of Republican hillbillies. – Yes, we are more red state but it’s ok… it’s not bad. As for the hillbillies – name any state and tell me they don’t have the people they aren’t proud of.
I really have been asked or told most of these things by people… it’s kind of crazy. This actually reminds me of the time when I first met my childhood friend who had moved here from Alaska… I asked her if she had lived in an Igloo. Haha. Maybe we all just need to travel a little more!
