My friends, I am not feeling SERENE today. Ann's question on meeting your soul mate, probably didn't help.
Here's our story, shortened, then you can read my "POUTY" story:
I met my Ollie four years ago. I was working as a security guard at Frito Lay and he was a overseeing a conveyor installation. We spoke for several weeks before he hinted at us going out. I was then moved to another location to do security and was a little sad that I didn't hear from him.
About a month later, the security company decided to put me back at Frito Lay and, lo and behold, he was still there. He immediately took my number and set up a date. We've been together ever since.
Ollie told me later that he wasn't sure I was serious about being around him but, after me leaving once and him missing out, he wasn't taking another chance.
Ollie and I are 18 years apart. I have been divorced for 16 years and, for him, its been 30, so we were both skeptical, but it works. We are so much alike and he is really good to me. Of course, I spoil him rotten. Neither of us has ever known a relationship such as ours.
We are so in love and loving every minute of it!
Now, my "Pouty" story:
Ollie returned from doing a job in Milwaukee, Wisconsin about 3 weeks ago and had to leave today to do a job in Schuyler, Nebraska. It is scheduled for 9 months, but, generally, these jobs go over. He'll get to come home a weekend each month, plus a week for Thanksgiving and about 3 weeks for Christmas.
Ollie is a self employed "site coordinator". Basically meaning that companies pay him to go to their job sites and oversee the work, keep them on budget and on schedule. It almost always means he'll be gone for weeks, months....this one, possibly will drag out to close to a year.
ME NO HAPPY!
So, CHEER ME UP!
Tell me about your SERENE MOMENTS!
Thanks for listening!
