Roberta Confides in Dasia (Photostory)

On Saturday, JT and Roberta talked a little more about their future plans, but nothing was really decided.  JT did more of the talking and Roberta did more of the listening.  She wasn't at all sure what her next move would be.  She decided to discuss the situation with her friend Dasia.

"So he came all the way here from Florida.  You didn't know he was coming?"  (Dasia)
"No.  He just showed up professing his love, and saying how he wanted us to be together for the long haul."  (Roberta)

"Well did this professing of love come with a ring?  And is he planning to move to Virginia?"  (Dasia)

"There was no ring, but he did talk about being committed to each other.  Whatever that means. (pause)  I'm not sure I even want to get married, so I didn't really press that issue.  I did make it very clear that my home was here now, and that I wasn't returning to Florida."  (Roberta)

"So you never want to get married again?"  (Dasia)
"I'm not saying that, but I've lived by myself for a long time, and I have such a full life.  I guess I'm afraid if I marry again, my life will again be about taking care of my husband."  (Roberta)

"I guess that's a valid point.  I love my husband, but sometimes he acts so helpless at home.  He's a principal at a school, and I'm sure he doesn't act like that at work.  On the other hand, I couldn't imagine my life without him."  (Dasia)
"That's so sweet.  I have to admit my heart still skips a beat when I see JT.  That man is just gorgeous."  (Roberta)

"Look at you.  That smile just got ten times bigger."  (Dasia)
"I still can appreciate a nice looking man.  Honestly, that probably scares me a little bit, too.  There were always women trying to get close to him.  Every time we were out, there was always somebody smiling in his face and trying to get his attention.  I don't want to have to deal with that."  (Roberta)
"You know the vultures will always be out there.  You just have to put them in their place and make sure you and JT are on the same page about that.  So, has he met your kids?"  (Dasia)
"My kids have no idea that he and I have been seeing each other.  Maybe I should casually introduce him to them while he's in town."  (Roberta)
"I think you should.  Maybe then you would feel more comfortable about exploring a future with him.  It's clear to me you have some strong feelings for him.  Maybe you should consider his offer and see what happens.  Whatever you do, take your time, and let him know you won't be pressured into anything."  (Dasia)

TO BE CONTINUED

FYI...Dark denim mock jeans and t-shirts (orange, yellow, and grey) will be hitting the store once it reopens later this week.

  1. Oh to have Roberta's dilema! As long as he only has eyes for her (and it seems he does), I think he might be worth it! And, if he is willing to move where she is, even better! Dasia's new outfit looks good. Did you also make Roberta's clothes?

    1. Phyllis - I agree, that's a good dilemma to have. Roberta is wearing a jean skirt that I made for my Prettie Girls. I did not make the top. I plan to make her some more clothes, soon. She can't be hanging out with Dasia and not have a decent wardrobe.

  2. Look at Roberta, dressed as though she doesn't have a care in the world, even though she still looks amazing in the red top, then she just starts spewing out her problems like a volcano all over Dasia. Dasia is looking good.

    1. Loretta - Oh my goodness! I can't believe you are back. I was just thinking about you yesterday when I was putting leashes on three of my dogs. They were sitting on the stairs and it reminded me of a picture of your dogs sitting on the stairs. So glad you are back.

    1. Kat - That is so true. Love is definitely timeless. I will check to see where I got those shoes from and I will get back to you. If you don't hear from me by tomorrow, send me another message.

    2. Kat - I got those shoes from Tallinas. They have a website, but they don't seem to have those black shoes available anymore. Their website is http://dollsupply.com/presta/index.php

      Delete
    3. Kat - The shoes I have are size 7, but they are all from the same company. A different company may have a different sizing numbers The best thing to do is measure the length and width of her foot and use this to correlate to the sizes.

  9. It's always good to have friends you can talk things over with, especially if they give good advice like Dasia. And Roberta will need more clothes if this relationship is going to feature in your stories, as well as to keep up with Dasia.

  12. Well, you only live once. So Roberta just has to set the ground rules, but she should go for it.

    1. Janainah - At the very least, she should enjoy his company.

  13. I dunno... It reads as though she has more of a physical attraction to him than an emotional one. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If she wants some man meat hanging around every once in a while, that's cool. Everything doesn't have to be picket fences and wedding dresses. Sometimes you just want companionship nookie without having them being a roommate too.

    1. Muff - I think that is a correct assessment of where she is right now, but that may be because of the tone he set for the relationship. She has been very cautious about getting too close to spare her feelings. "Man meat hanging around"....what a picture. Lol. I think she wants more than that, but not sure she wants to be walking down an aisle any time soon. We'll see how serious he really is after their next conversation.

  14. Hello from Spain: I like the conversation between Dasia and Roberta. Roberta has to follow their her dreams and achieve what she wants and makes her happy.Nice kitchen. I see you have the new furniture about table and chairs. I love but in my country they are not on stores. A pity. We keep in touch

    1. All4Barbie - Yes, Roberta must do what makes her happy. I'm not sure she knows what that is at the moment. I'm sure she will figure it out. I'm surprised the new Barbie furniture is still not in your country yet. Hope it gets there soon.
