Something I don't think I've talked about here is I hate GREEN vegetables!  (actually most vegetables -- but especially green ones)

During my negotiations with Hands -- I jokingly said one of my hard limits was green veggies.  He just went "hrmmmm" and we moved on.

We have had a few meals together -- but they didn't involve veggies.

On Wednesday evening I was over at their house for dinner...... a family dinner complete with kids.  Dinner was spaghetti and stuffed ZUCCHINI.  Zucchini is GREEN.  Hands was sitting beside me and he passed the plate of zucchini to me.  I smiled sweetly and said "no thanks" and He smiled back and said "oh yes I think you will enjoy these.  My daughter made them".  I looked up to see said daughter watching me.  I smiled and helped myself to the smallest piece of stuffed zucchini on the plate -- and trust me -- it wasn't THAT small!!

That was one of the biggest tests of my submission we have had yet.  I ate the whole piece........... just!
Last night I made dinner -- Thai noodles and chinese dumplings.  I sent Hands a picture of my dinner -- just cause I was in a very cheeky mood.  And the caption read " My dinner - note NO green veggies".  

The "brat" is still very much alive!

I haven't been sleeping well for the last week or so.......... and when I don't sleep I think... dear god do I think!!!

I hear all the voices new and old telling me all the things that are wrong with me -- and I am left thinking I must be a really bad person.... 

Do I really make everything about me?!  DO I?? 

Am I really that unlovable??!! 

Do I try too hard  and scare people away ??

Maybe I shouldn't wear my heart on my sleeve .....

Maybe I really don't understand how to be a friend or lover
Maybe I should just close the door and hide away 

Yeah my worst enemy is not out THERE 
no -- my worst enemy is in my head.

Staying Cool

I like to think on the outside I look cool and collected......... I am working hard to keep that persona -- cool as a cucumber........ 

But truthfully -- inside that coolness -- that ice -- is burning....... 

Driving home from visiting with Hands and his wife last evening -- my mind went back to His walking me out to my car -- the hug -- the gentle kiss -- the soft caress of my back.......

and god how i wanted to hold him closer longer -- to stroke his face and kiss him again and again....... to whisper in his ear that I was burning........ 

But surely he knows that -- knows how long it has been since we had "private time" -- surely he knows the endorphin cravings are gnawing at my mind -- making the fire burn hotter.

I know

and I know too -- how life can get in the way -- and how I must be patient -- and wait........ 
The day will come when the fire is quenched again -- 

Until then -- it burns hot
