Our Love Story Cont.

Now here is where the stalking comes in.  LOL  Well if you can call it that.  Remember I said I was going to give this guy two weeks to notice me.  What that really is saying is two days, two Sundays at church right?  The first Sunday I did see him, he was with a teenage boy and a younger girl, I didn't see any parents with him. I tried and tried to make eye contact with him after the service, but it didn't work at all.  So the next Sunday, basically the same exact thing happened.  So I just went out to my car to wait for my kids, when I saw Mark and his children walk out of the front doors, so I stood outside my car and watched them. lol  They walked across the street to a garage sale.  I am flipping now because me and garage sales go hand in hand. They didn't buy anything but when they were walking back they had to walk almost in front of my care, so here is my BIG chance for this guy to notice me.   :-(  Well he didn't even look my way. And I looked darn good that day, dang it. I watched him go around the back of the church, I am assuming that they are getting in there car, I say to myself if this guy has I truck I am going to scream. LOL  Sure enough a shiny black truck, YEA!
So now I am thinking I have to bring out the big guns and just call this guy who just doesn't have a clue that I am out here.  After church I go home, pull out his number (I have this from the first day I shook his hands remember?)  I call his number and it starts to ring, I decided ahead of time that I would not give him my last name, because only if he wanted to meet me, he then would have to find out what it is. So I call and he doesn't answer his phone, I get the answering machine.  This is how the one sided conversation went.
"Hi Mark, you don't know who I am, but my name is Kim and we go to the same church.  I met you a couple of weeks ago during the greeting time.  But I have decided that I am getting way to old to wait for you to notice me.  So I decided to just call you, hope you are having a great day, good bye"
And that was that!!!!  Remember I still was not 100% that there might not be a Mrs. Mark right?  So if there was, I left no last name and no phone number, so I was safe.  And if he wanted to find me it wouldn't be that hard, he knows we go to the same church and my name is Kim.
 Ok I did it, now if he doesn't call me then at least I didn't go years wondering if I should of done something.
So I went back to my yard work, not really thinking much more then my yard at that time. About an hour later the phone rings, so I answer it of course, and someone on the other end says "Is this Kim" I say "yes it is, who am I speaking with?"  He says "Mark Lau"  My freakin heart hit the ground so hard, I know he heard it.  My mouth is wide open screaming in silence, and if you know me at all, then you know that was probably the hardest thing I have ever done, except for giving birth to my three children.  LOL  My first question after that little episode was "So how did you find me?"
