Things are going so well, sometimes I think I need to pinch myself. I am still on the hunt for a new job, but I have been getting interviews and really I could be doing more on that front, so no compaints there. I have really been getting back to the things I love to do and learning a bit more about myself. It’s always a process, but for now at least, it’s a really good one.
The past week has been fantastic for several different reasons. Last week, I was having a hard time with doubt and just in a state of panic about Jerry meeting my family last weekend and me meeting his this coming weekend. But after Friday, which went better than I could have hoped, I feel great. I am really starting to feel secure and not as much giddy, but genuinely happy with him. It’s so very different than anything I have ever had. I am beside myself loving it, but at the same time, forgetting what life was like without him. Saturday night, we went to dinner with Tina and Cam for our little Valentine’s celebration and also for Cam’s birthday at 5Star. It was really fun to hang out and catch up with them and for Jerry to finally meet them! We had a great time! (even if the stupid waiter DID forget to give Cam his bday clue!!)I gave Jerry his gift and he loved it….a bag of goodies that he loves (candy, girl scout cookies, a sushi cookbook and a picture of me and Krusty (his dog)…we topped it off watching Extras with some vintage folks. It was a really great night.
Sunday we played/sang in the band and then went to Cary for lunch and napping before going to the last Canes game before the Olympics. It was a fantastic game! We went with Smitty and Nancy from Vintage and we all had a blast. Jer had never been to a hockey game so I was so glad that we went all the way to a sudden death shootout and then won! It was great to see him having so much fun. 🙂
But the best was today. I suppose “real Valentine’s day”…I had no idea if/what he would do today. A couple people got flowers at work and I kinda wanted some, but knew that it really isn’t practical. But by the end of the day I started to wonder….And then he sent me an email at about 4:30pm saying, “give me a call later so I can say Happy Valentine’s Day properly, since I haven’t got your gift (yet)”…I was like MAN….that kinda sucks. And I was a little confused and frustrated…and I felt a little silly. So I get home and come inside and apparantly he had come over sometime during the day. Because my bed was made and he left me some chocolate and a bottle of wine with a beautiful card (insert mushy stuff here). It was a fun surprise.
I am really, really in love. And it’s pretty amazing.
