I find myself a little melancholic tonight. I should be in bed, but I just bowled myself a nice thumb blister (6 games and we didn't start until 8). My weekends are getting better. I almost dreaded this one because I don't feel like I've met enough people to make enough plans to look forward to the time away from work. I know that sounds sad. I don't get all the way to that point in my thoughts often, but it does happen. But it was surprisingly good. Not too much downtime.

Caught up with some peeps. Prepped Jada for the start of her pharmacy career tomorrow. Did a little bit of research since Dad and Lecia will be here next Saturday. I'm excited to see them and looking for options for tourist plans.

On a heavier note (people don't usually make this transition and preface it with that), it's been a bit bleak emotionally. I was once again given a couple of examples that further proved my current theory about boys not being so bright (not exactly the phrase my girls and I use, but ya know). I wish people would stop providing evidence. I believe it already! Seriously, guys, you don't have to convince me. I understand that many of you are oblivious to your responsibility concerning any girl's heart, but I'm still tired of seeing girls get heart. Regardless of who's to blame. Wake up. Look around. If you're beautiful and a flirt, do you really think SHE thinks y'all are just buddies? Is that what helps you sleep at night? Ugh. Two words for ya: MAN UP!

I'm stepping down off that soapbox now. I still believe there will be one to prove me wrong. And I only need one to prove me wrong. Just one to dissolve the bitterness. Well, one for me and one for each of my girls as well. So maybe a few are needed here.

I've also done more self-evaluation this weekend. I found some not-so-great things. I'll address that later. It feels a little too heavy to drop as an add-on in a post. Maybe it deserves its own space. More to come...

This post reminds me of some conversations from the Union days. I know there is an applicable song for this moment...how does it go...boys will be boys, bad boys, bad boys. :)

Seriously though...hang in there. I would submit that all of us guys are a little slow on the uptake in this area. But there are some good fish out there. They just have to MAN UP! :) Holla!

I'm glad you had a good weekend and we'll try to keep you busy next weekend. I can't wait! It seems like it's been 6 months atleast since we saw you last. Just keep your head up and you're always in my prayers.
Love you lots,
Lecia

you know, women have their faults too. so for every phrase you can think of for a man, men can think of something as well.

I just threw up, so my mind is a little blah...however, i wanted to write to say...at some point guys mature (and girls too for that matter)...it really is funny to realize that guys have sooo much control, and sometimes never realize it...but God gets hold of some of them, and then they step up to the plate...until then, girls can just work on theirself and who they are in Christ!
