Who Holds The Cards Now?

I went to work out with Damien again today. He's really kicking my ass...hard core, but it's good. I'm just super sore. I have noticed that it's like totally boosted my self esteem though (even after 2 days of it and despite the fact that I'm puttering around like I'm 80 b/c any greater movement causes me to almost pass out from the pain). I think that comes from his praise of my efforts and ability. He keeps telling me that I'm way more athletic than I give myself credit for. Now if you know me, I'm sure you are doubled over in hysterics. Anyway, it's all working for me right now.
Gavin called me today while I was over there. I think he has some weird 6th sense about when I'm with Damien. He calls me a lot during that time and really I don't spend that much time with him. Anyway, we chatted for a while and he starts telling me some shit about his ex. I bluntly told him (again) that I don't know what to say when he brings that stuff up. Nothing I say is going to be the right thing...so I was implying that he should quit it. I'm sure that implication was lost on him. He asked me what I was doing today and I told him I was headed over to Haleiwa to sign the lease on the place behind him. He said that should make things interesting. I laughed and agreed, but told him that it will be a very long time before we have sex again since everytime I have sex with him, he goes MIA. He said he just has a lot to figure out with this ex stuff. I told him that he should act like a grown up and communicate that then...you know NOT a week later. I didn't cave, I stood my ground, I was borderline bitchy (but mostly just firm), and I sounded very confident when I was talking to him...score 1 for me. I'm not sure he'll call again, but honestly I told Miranda earlier that I don't know that I want him to at this point.
Russell and I did sign the lease today. I went to Target afterwards and bought a few things for the new house. I found a patio set and he didn't freak about the money...so we're headed toward better than yesterday. I have no idea what got into him yesterday, but I hope it has passed.

  1. I did chuckle a bit at thinking "athletic" was a term applied to you. Sure you are definitely looking good and in great shape, but athletic seems to conotate some "sports" type images. I don't think I can imagine you playing any sport unless they've added more interesting events to the olympics like the 200 meter attitude! LOL How ever if they come up with a red wine drinking team call me and J so we can sign up!

  2. HA - I know! I am so NOT athletic...my brother got all of those genes. I personally think if McD's can be an Olympic sponsor, than why can't we have a drinking team?!
