Still lost out there?

Okay, so things aren't going well. I have talked to a lot of people, well, people I work with. How come no one knows anyone who is single and my age that they might even point in my direction or me in theirs?

I'm not desperate or anything. In fact, I am probably too picky. I m just tired of being invisible. I feel like I am the only one who is alone, not matched up and just generally behind in the game of life.

I want the option of having my own children in addition to adoting a few. I'm getting older and I would like some prospects as the ladies in my church say.

I'm real and have a sense of humor and want to learn and love. Why can't they see me?

Countdown begins

Okay, the countdown has officially begn. By this time next year, I should hopefully be on my honeymoon. I am having a hard time with some of the steps, though. I really don't know who is the person who will help me. I guess I am trying it on my own and it isn't working out so well, I am really having a hard time buckling down and committing to the plan. Who knew? I don't even know that I have time to date.....

AHHHHHH!!!!

Animoto

OMG, I am a video producer!!!!! Hot Diggity! This was so much fun. I was sharing it with people I know and I can't wait to tell my cousin about it (He is in an indie band and what an awseome, easy way to make a music video.). I had some trouble uploading music, but I think I have that part licked (once I asked someone how to do it) and tried remixing the original.

Again, this is so cool. You've got to try it. http://www.animoto.com/ . Do it. It rocks (and so will you). Have mp3 music to upload unless you like hiphop, electronica or indie. (Those are the only options available on the site.)

11. I can doodle with the best of them
12. I believe in a loving God who wants the best for me
13. I sing all right
14. I love most kinds of music (gangsta rap isn't one of them, sorry)
15. I love all kinds of movies
16. I read all kinds of books
17. I play tennis (funny, but not too too bad)
18. I like watching sports
19. I like batting practice and am pretty good at hitting the ball.
20. I love to hunt for things (not sports hunt, but find it hunt)
21. I can follow a recipe fairly well
22. I am creative
23. I am generous
24. I can spell for the most part

The Guy...

I laid out for you in my first post the plan. I want to meet and marry the man of my heart by November 8, 2008, which is still just a little over a year away.

Another step in the process is writing out exactly what I am looking for in a guy... So, here it goes.

I am looking for a smart, funny, employed guy who just so happens to be my complement.

He is honest, trustworthy, and successful at what he does for a living.

He cares about others, loves kids and animals (because I have plenty of dogs and cats).

He can cook like a dream and helps around the house. He likes teaching me to cook, too. (Not that I can't, but I still want to have fun learning.)

He is someone that other people like to be around, doesn't mind sharing his feelings, though he doesn't have to cry over every little thing either.

I hope he is taller than me, but not waaay too tall. He only has to be attractive to me. He has bright smiley eyes, a smile that is infectious and hair I can sink my hands in.

He graduated from college with a degree and works in a field he loves.

He is well rounded, can dance and loves music. (Rap is optional, I don't like it.)

He goes to church and particpates! He believes but he isn't militant about it. He is willing to witness, but he doesn't judge.

There are many things that I haven't covered I'm sure, but I'll add them as I think of them.

Beginnings...

I am making new plans and they tangle like spider webs. I have given myself a year to find my soul mate and marry him. I have this crazy hope that the plan will work.

I have been putting off dating, falling for a guy and getting married, then having kids until I was out of school and in a full-time job. Now, I am and I feel like I am behind. While I definitely feel the ticking clock, I am not desperate. I am picky by nature and so I don't imagine that this process will be any different.

I have set a goal date, which according to the Plan (the Marriage Plan by Aggie somebody) is the first step in a twelve step process. (Sounds a bit like AA) I set my goal date for a little over a year: November 8, 2008. I know that it sounds crazy, but if it works I know my aunt and mom can get a wedding organized in an amazingly short amount of time.

I decided to blog about the process as I go. This is the first blog, the first step.
