I’m super tired and need a nap, so I crawled into bed but couldn’t fall asleep. For the most part, I can’t sleep during the middle of the day. In rare instances it’ll happen, but it’s unusual. I hope it happens today, though!!
So, my big news is that I’m moving in with the boyfriend. Insert smiley face HERE. He asked me to move in about a month ago, but I had a lot of questions I needed answered before I could accept his offer. So, after many discussions, I decided to go for it. My concerns had nothing to do with how I feel about him or how our relationship is doing, but more about logistics and his mother. His mother is morally opposed to this, so I’m still very nervous, but everyone else seems to be genuinely happy for us. And I’m happy for us.
A picture of where I’m living is below.
My apartment complex is giving me a lot of crap for giving them 45 days notice rather than 60. It’s causing me a tremendous amount of stress, which is awesome because I don’t already have nearly enough stress.
Between now and the end of May I have a lot to do. There’s furniture to buy, stuff to put on Craig’s List, packing to do. Oh yeah, and a trip to Pennsylvania. YIKES!
A ‘ghost’ from my past unexpectedly reappeared recently and the reason for the reappearance is more pleasant than I could have ever imagined. I’m very interested – and optimistic – to see what happens next, but regardless, I’m so glad to have an opportunity to turn the thing I most regret into something positive.
The Hurricanes are going to game seven with the New Jersey Devils, which is pretty cool. I think the final game in any playoff series is always great. So much on the line, so much excitement. Even if this is as far as they go, I’m glad the Canes finally made it back to the playoffs. Onward and upward from here.
As I mentioned above, I think the boyfriend and I are going to visit my parents for Memorial Day. I’m bummed because usually when I go up there, Jason and Laurie make the trip, too, but they’ll be in Vegas. So in a way I hate going allll the way up there without seeing them, but they’ll be down here to help me move the following weekend. Plus, my parents are dying to spend time with Allan as my boyfriend rather than spending time with him as just my friend.
I spent a lot of time with Special K and her kids over the weekend. I stayed over on Thursday night so I could be with Abby on Friday morning while Zach had minor surgery on his eye. The surgery went perfectly and Zach is back to being Zach. He’s at such an adorable age. I can’t get enough of his chubby smiles and high-pitched squeals of delight. He’s a joy.
Sorry to be so gushy about the boyfriend, but sometimes I can’t help it! Okay, so on Saturday, Allan climbed up a tree and cut its dead branches off. He was like 25 feet off the ground. And later that night, after Kristen’s shindig, he sat on Abby’s bedroom floor in the dark and told her a bedtime story about a prince and princess. Like, what kind of guy does that? He can climb trees, use saws AND comfort a toddler before bed. See, I told you I was lucky!
Kathryn and I are having dinner tonight and I’ve missed her, so I’m excited to catch-up. We haven’t seen each other since my last day at FMI. I still miss the folks I worked with; it was a really great group of people.
Okie dokie. I’m going to give this nap thing another shot or this day is going to be ruined by my catatonic mood!
