Musings of a Lonely Writer No More: Anthony- My Boyfriend!

No longer am I a lonely writer, well I’ll still keep those and add onto the Musings of a Lonely Writer posts just because of other reasons but none-the-less I’ve got a boyfriend now, my first and hopefully last!!!! Ok so I’ve known Anthony for 4 years but only at our place of worship, The Kingdom Hall. Well I was adamant we would not get along but last month a friend at out hall came to me thinking I was dating Anthony or had an agreement for dating and it shocked me and so thinking Anthony didn’t know I decided to meet him in a public setting to speak with him.

At this fast food restaurant we talked and decided to learn to be friends as my friend Kendra had said if when you go there that you know him 100% and can say you don’t want anything then by all means tactfully explain that but I didn’t know him at all so I decided to get to know him better.

He’s really been there for me the last month and me for him and we’ve learned we have tons in common and he’s even a writer too and of science fiction / fantasy like me!!! Squeals for how brilliantly perfect that is!! There have been rough patches and misunderstanding but we are mature enough (I’m 29 years and he’s 24 years old) to talk through them and move forward.

Well the one day I thought well maybe he only wants friends and nothing more which I wanted to know sooner rather than later and we discussed it but I was still upset and unsure of where we stood after he left my parents house and so I texted him and he called me on his break at work and said he would date me now and that he was only waiting as he didn’t think I was ready. He held back in our talk as did I so we’ve basically shown we are learning to communicate and are lacking in some respects but are learning.

So that night he came by my parents house and my mom stayed up to chaperone and we talked and he asked me to close my eyes and he went to his car and came back and placed a bouquet of red and white carnations in my hands and asked me to date him and I said YES!!!!! However through one more large rough patch we are in a good place and so I’m going to add some pictures of a gift he made me for my hair before we even began dating and then the gift I made him and then the flowers and then some pictures of me and him, lol! So excited!!! Can’t you tell?????!!!!! LOL!

He made me the hair piece!

I made him the cookies in a jar as he likes baking!

He gave me the red and white carnation flowers when he asked me out!

Then a few of the below pictures are of him with his cat Mercy on his head or shoulder and then the ones below that are of our mini-first date, we went to an old mill like museum and then to some green houses at a college! The Swan we kept trying to get in the background of our pictures decided to play nice at the end and I was able to get a quick picture of it so because of all the trouble I went through to get it I am adding it here, lol!


Chain and Gems Pony-Tail Holder and Interchangeable Bracelet!

I saw a few examples online of a bracelet but also pony-tale holder with a chain and gems attached and thought it was gorgeous. I got one of my black pony-tale holders out but I couldn’t get the gems I had to fit onto it so I started looking around my room. I found a chain with small blue gems attached to the chain that was attached to an old metal CD holder and so I took it off the key chain holder and then took off the charm attached to the end of the chain.

I attached the chain a few different times and added another necklace piece but it didn’t look right so I took off the necklace piece and decided to attach the chain by itself to the pony-tale holder. At first I used pliers but they didn’t work and squeezing the little pieces by hand were breaking my nails and scratching my fingers so I looked for an alternative. So I dug out my wire cutters which really don’t work cutting wire as they are dull and was a cheep pair but they squeeze things really well and were small and easier to handle and I used them to squeeze the ends of the metal around the pony-talk holder. 

It looks well not only as a bracelet as seen below but I use it more often in my hair and it seems to spice up a plain pony-tale holder. Different colors of chains and gems can be found or made depending on how much you want to spend and your hair color.  

To see the pony tale-holder on me go to this link or look up the post about the Ruby Red and Emerald or Glass Green Sticker Gem Hair Pins:

  • Pony-Tale Holder- a few dollars for a pack in the beauty supply section of any store such as Wal-Mart, Wal Greens, Dollar Tree, and Dollar General
  • Chains and Gems- depends on the price of chains and gems you want to buy or refurbish, mine are so old that I can’t remember the price of the key chain that I took and refurbished. Michaels however is a good place to go for chains and gems if you want to make this with different chains and gems and if you get their coupons by email or in the regular mail you can get certain items cheaper

Having a rough day?

This sweet message helped me a lot and I thought maybe others would find it to be helpful as well! :~)

Good morning my wonderful friends!

Wi-fi went down for five minutes.....

My new friend Anthony sent me this funny picture text this morning and I found it to be really funny and thought to share! :~)

You don't have to be crazy to be my friend!

I sent this to a few of my regular normal friends, ha-ha, I'm the crazy one that will train all my friends to be crazy like me! ;~D

You text him....

My new friend Anthony sent me this funny picture and text this morning and I got such a kick out of it that I just had to share! :~)

Press any key to start!

My brother-in-law Karl sent this to my mom Linda a few years ago as a funny thing to her as she isn't very computer or tech savvy and so he thought he'd be a smarty pants and send it to her, lol! :~D

Did you know it's impossible to say "P" without your lips touching?
