this rotten week is over. next week will be fabulous (it has to be!)

i make no secret of the fact that i lurk around a few online dating sites. i've even been on a few dates with men i've met through these sites. the funny thing is, despite my 'profile' showing that i'm interested in men in my own age range, i keep getting messages from youngsters - a 29 year old and a 32 year in the last 24 hours. they just want to 'have some fun'. maybe there is some subliminal message there or they just think that a single 'older' woman is just gagging for it... i'm happy to admit that i like younger men, although i guess the truth is, i'm looking for 'mr right', not just 'mr right now'. sometimes i wonder if i could/should 'have some fun' with one of these youngsters....

nah, probably not.

happiness challenge:
double happiness today!
a host of golden daffodils - i picked up 2 bunches for $8 on the way to the bus stop this evening. they are in my big blue vase and looking fabulous.
