A part of me feels good about the appointment, that tomorrow will be the first step towards a daily life without constant wisdom teeth pain and handfuls of Advil, but most of me is terrified they'll take one look and want to rip all my teeth out without Novocaine. And of course there is the "you should really see the dentist/doctor more often" lecture that I KNOW is forthcoming. I suppose it's time to face the music though. Sigh. Wish me luck!

I wish the practical part of me could win this battle. I wish I was normal and could make an appointment and walk in like a normal person, minus the shaking and palpitations. I wish I had a support system out here, but I don't. Like all the other battles in my life I have to fight it alone and I'm afraid it's one I'm going to lose.
Dating is a completely foreign concept to me. My experiences have been entanglements not relationships. I don't know what being part of something based on trust and admiration and healthy emotion is.
I’m afraid I’m too old to really learn how to love and be loved.

I've got tomorrow off due to President's Day. I love love love random weekdays off. Sleeping in and daytime TV. Such a luxury.

I also got all the ingredients I need to make Orange Chicken for my dinner with Eharmony boy. I'm doing the test run on Sunday Chinese New Year so hopefully it comes out well or I'm going to have to come up with something else to make for him!
In other news I decided on an orange chicken recipe to make for Eharmony boy's welcome back dinner. Since it's Chinese New Year this weekend I'm going to do a test run and see if it comes out ok. I need to make a trip to Whole Foods tonight to get the ingredients, but I'm not sure I'm feeling up to it. After a few days with no chest pains, they came back around this mornign around 5am and have stayed with me most of the day. Bleah. Chest pains=no fun.
On the upside I heard from my mail carrier personally today and he said he personally delivered mail to my mailbox today and I should be receiving mail regularly again, so (hopefully) my post-office induced 6 week mail hiatus is officially over. Still no explaination on why they suddenly decided to not deliver my mail for a month and a half, but I'll take what I can get.

- I finally heard from Eharmony boy (Yippee!!) , he was just without internet access and couldn't email. I can't believe his trip is only half over...it feels like he's been gone forever already. We have dinner plans when he gets back (I think I decided to make Orange chicken), and it will be nice to see him again and hear all about his trip.
- I'm reading "The Game", that book/manual that shows men how to pick up women....I'll write a full review when I'm done, but I've got to say it's the biggest piece of sh*t ever written. I knew it was going to irritate me when I read it, but WOW...anyone else read it?

Still no word from Eharmony boy...but uh...I'm trying not to think about it.

Still no word from Eharmony boy....but in the interest of trying to relax...I'm not going to think about it....much.
The boss is out until next week, so today should be fairly relaxing at work. I'm going to try to work on my taxes at some point though. Hopefully doing math won't stress me out too much. Yes, it's true, I am one of the few people who still does their taxes themselves and BY HAND. No Turbo Tax for me. I'm old school. Pass me my abacus.

- Mild chest pains continue...and now my arm hurts. Bleah.
- Went to Barnes and Noble last night to hear Paul Auster speak about his new book and read from it. I know I have said this before, but it's truly amazing to hear a writer speak of and read his work. It's like a backstage pass to someone's mind. I meant to only go and hear him talk and pick up his book, but of course I picked up his and 3 others. I'm such a bookstore addict!

I arrived at home at 8:17pm.
I could have WALKED home faster than that. I've done it before. Of course this time it was 15 degrees, with a wind chill of -1 and 35 minutes of that was spent waiting for the train OUTSIDE.
I swear I heard the water in the bathtub sizzle when I got in.

Last night I started feeling an odd tightness in my chest near my heart....I'm only 27 and I'm sure its nothing, but needless to say it has me a little freaked. I'm HOPING it's just a pulled muscle and it hasn't gotten any worse all day, but it's an odd feeling and I'd like it to go away. I wish there was some support group for people terrified of Drs.....I really need to be over this fear.
My fears about Eharmony boy have lessened, at least a little. In the 3 days he's been out of the country, I've heard from him every day, and he's even sent me some photos he's taken. It's nice to know he's thinking about me.
I'm an Ilinois girl so I'll be rooting for Chicago tonight. Go Bears!!!

Eharmony boy left on his month long trip yesterday. I still don't have much hope that we'll hang out again when he gets back, but he did text me this morning during his brief layover, so maybe there's a chance. I've never had an actual relationship, the whole "dating" thing is foreign to me and I feel like I don't know the boundaries and rules. I guess we'll see what happens when he gets back.
