I got home from Denver last night. My house is going to be done in about 3 to 4 weeks so I’m going to be in full on purge mode this week.
I spent about an hour at the airport getting my plane maintenance and fueled back up before I put it in my rental hangar. I sure love that darn thing. It has given me years of pure joy. It also makes it very easy to travel. I love being up in the clouds. It makes me feel so small and humble. I love flying.
I missed my kids, I gave them all kinds of kisses and hugs as soon as I came in the house. They had all kinds of fun it sounds like. I saw some of the photos on the girls Facebook pages so that was fun. All of my nannies are officially done. I told them I wanted the last month to handle my kids all by myself. I need to get them and mainly myself into a routine. I really haven’t been using nannies unless I travel but it’s time to figure this all out. I’m confident I can handle it. I have 3 good kids that love to help. The grocery shopping will be something I need to figure out. They are all done with their summer camp and we are all done with their speech therapist so I really have no backup other than when Lindsay is in town. Her house is almost done so she will be leaving in the next week. The week before we move I’m taking the kids to the condo downtown and we will all stay there while my movers come in and pack things up for us. I have a cousin of mine who will fly with us to Denver to watch my kids in the plane and also make sure my pets are fine. I have to fly my dog and 2 cats with me to Denver. I found a neighbor who wants the parakeets. Thank goodness. I never wanted them in the first place but they are left over from when my ex-wife lived here. I did text her and say come get your cat or the cat is moving with me to Denver. She called right away more interested in me moving away. The call ended with her not wanting the cat for some pretty lame excuses but that’s okay. I love the cat, she’s mine now, she’s more than welcome to live with me forever. Oh yeah, speaking of ex’s.
When I got home and got everyone settled in my nannies told me I had a voicemail on the home phone. No one ever leaves me voicemails or even really calls my home phone so that was a surprise. They started giggling and told me to go listen. Of course all 3 of them went with me and listened in. They had already played it I don’t know how many times. It was Peyton. Yes, Las Vegas Peyton. The girl I dated right after Meri. She left a nice message and told me call her. I played the message twice trying to hear if it was an emergency or if something was wrong. Then we all sat around for a good 10 minutes debating if I should call her back or not.
After a few minutes I decided to call and see what’s up. It’s human nature to be curious about things. Peyton and I broke up only because I moved from Las Vegas back to Chicago. It was a friendly breakup and we remained friends for a few years after. I haven’t seen or talked to her in over a year so this was unusual.
I went outside for privacy because they wanted me to call her back on speakerphone. I said no and walked out. It was a little awkward at first but finally she told me what was up. She has a work conference in Chicago this coming weekend and wanted to see if we could grab dinner. I said Uhhhhhhhh Lol I said why? She said it sounded fun and we can catch each other up on our lives. I said I can do that right now. She said with a sigh, Sam. Fine, we can do dinner. Then she asked if I was single or would I be bringing someone. I said I’m single and not wanting to date right now. She said she has been single for 4 months. And then I got off the phone pretty quickly. I told her call Saturday so I know where to pick her up at. She said it would be easier to eat at the hotel restaurant. I said fine, then we exchanged cell numbers and I said, Good talk, see ya then hung up Lol I didn’t know how to wrap that conversation up. She sent me a text this morning with her flight info and hotel info. It was all on the same email page so she just screenshotted it.
So Peyton and I will be having dinner Saturday night. This whole thing played out on my Twitter last night. My friends were giving me advice on what to do or what not to do. It was pretty funny and the Dm’s were even better.
I have no intention of dating Peyton or even planning more than this dinner together. I have no feelings for her and I’m sure she feels the same way. It will be good to reconnect and maybe we can start up a friendship? I don’t know. We will see.
I’m taking my kids to the grocery store. Pray for me Lol See ya guys!
