I took myself out to dinner and bought a couple of magazines I'd been wanting. I did not choose a "date" kind of place, so service was just fine.

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

A friend of mine sent me a unexpected box of goodies, with valentines from her children.  It was very thoughtful and sweet of them.

I have a standing appointment on Thursdays that's half a block away from a Godiva shop, which was the busiest I have ever seen it.  I will have to claim my free chocolate truffle next week instead.

Half price heart boxes today... best thing about Valentine's Day.

I'm heading out shortly to take advantage of those!  adn hopefully get some other "valentine" wrapped regular candy for work.

I am disappointed; Target had very little left, and it was only 30% off, and CVS was picked clean. I did manage to find several small, russell stover heart boxes, but i really just wanted one big one. co-worker is going to her CVS and promised to get me one if she sees it.  hahahahaha

I ended up staying in and catching up on Walking Dead and Survivor.

I did check one Duane Reade on the way back from breakfast and they had almost nothing.  They don't stock as much holiday candy as other drug store chains.

Checking in on all my fellow spinsters.  I'm still out on the ledge, there are a couple of interests, but I don't think they have much chance of staying power.  One is very religious, while I'm not and is about a month post break up with his out of state girlfriend, and the other I have hanged out with 4 times with him not evening make the move to kiss me.  And these were preceded by a quite a few men messging me just to play scrabble, or men that were way too old for me to date.  While my friends (who I love, I was in their wedding) just celebrated 8 years together today and the birth of their 3rd child a few months back  :'(

No prospects what-so-ever for me.  I've been doing the eHarmony free weekends but haven't gotten any responses back.  I am playing softball twice a week and having a lot of fun with my teammates but none of them are prospects.  Some of them are young enough that I'm tempted to ask them if their Dad's are single.   ;D

I turn 45 tomorrow.  When the eHell did that happen?!?!?
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

I have one early prospect - my mom is really really pushing him.  It is the son of one of her friends, someone we've known for almost 20 years now, though I've never actually spoken to the son before.  Kind of uncomfortable, but I'm trying to remain optimistic!

I've been kind of ledge-adjacent myself lately. Not feeling as bad as sometimes, but definitely wistful, not to mention pessimistic. I've thought about returning to eHarmony or Match.com, but can't work up any enthusiasm considering the lack of results from previous times. <sigh>
