Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
What do you look for in a potential boyfriend?
Most importantly, goals and ambitions. You have to have the passion to make something of yourself, and the drive to set the various things in motion that will one day make that a reality. Having a job is important to me as well, or at the very least, going to school so that you can get a good one is — because even though the economy continues to recess, I’m not going to entrust the basic needs and care of my two already existing children to someone whose ability to provide for them is questionable. If I didn’t already have kids, I would say that being able to put a roof over both of our heads would be acceptable — but I want more for my kids than just a roof over their heads and the bare basics.
I don’t think it’s bad that I want my children to be able to enjoy nice things, some of which I didn’t get to when I was their ages or things that weren’t available when I was a kid — because, you know, there’s a difference between being a child of the eighties and one post-millennium. Namely the difference between the technology available in both eras… I mean, as a child all we had were VHS tapes. DVDs were made during my late childhood and early adolescence, if I recall. And the iPhone and iTouch didn’t come out until 2007.
I wouldn’t mind being with someone who is religious, just as long as we agree to disagree on key points of whatever religion that might be if it comes down to that — either that, or we choose to leave religion out of our relationship. I don’t want to be seen as someone who can potentially have a guy X amount of babies, and I would never entrust my sexuality to someone who was opposed to birth control and eventual sterilization. I would want to be with someone with whom I could be my geeky self, continuing to play MMOs and video games without being seen as “weird” for that… even though now we live in a time where that’s encouraged, so that one’s not too much of a big deal any more.
I’d also want to be with someone who was not looking to play “father” to my sons. Step-father, maybe. Role model, sure. But they already have fathers. You can’t be the biological father for someone who already has one, as all of us have a mother and a father. Maybe that’s the nerdy side of me speaking.
And most importantly, you have to be someone that I’d trust around my kids. That right there is the single most important thing… because if I can trust you around my kids, and I wouldn’t mind them getting to know you as someone that Mommy liked, the rest of it begins to fall into place nicely and neatly.
I’ve been looking into home security kalispell as I’ve had the time, namely because we don’t actually have any home security system set up here in this house. Of course, at least one adult is always at this house at any given time, but after seeing something on the news last night about the crime sprees that have been going on in the adjacent cities… it’s kind of made me think, you know? In wanting to do my part, I’d like to get a home security system — one that has an affordable monthly fee like Home Security Kalispell does, as a matter of fact. It’s something that could easily be paid with the blogging that I do, and I could set aside enough hours to ensure it continues to be paid for.
Another thing that I’ve been looking into is www.localtv-satellite.com. Based on what I’ve seen from my neighbors who actually have Direct TV, it has more channels and is a lot more affordable than what we have right now. It wouldn’t be that bad of an idea to suggest it to my father next time he’s looking into something and see how receptive he is to the idea of getting it. Wish me luck!
I made this on my Nintendo DSi one evening as I was putting James down for the night. In wanting to make sure that every facet of my console worked as it should, I went into the picture-making and taking programs that the DSi boasted — as a matter of fact, that was most of the reason why I chose to let myself be upgraded rather than settle for another DS. Because, you know, Lites aren’t really being made any more… and if something did happen to the console that had to be replaced, I would much rather be able to get actual tech support on it and not have to pull something out of my rear to get it fixed should something happen later on down the line. All of that brings you this.
For those of you who may be curious, he was laying on one of the blankets that he was given before he was actually born and was in a diaper because his eczema was giving him a bit of trouble that evening. That, and it was warm enough to warrant diping around some like that. Of course, he was wrapped up in the blanket after I took the picture, but if he wanted to — or even needed to — he could get out of the blanket at any time. Kind of the point, I would wager.
Of course, I did manage to get a pink DSi, so all was not lost throughout this!
