One of my great loves 🙂
It has been a while…
Oh the joys of moving and not having Internet. I am long past due for posting something other than a picture. I do apologize, for I have been busy adventuring into the lands of cohabitation.
Yes, the man and I have decided to live in sin full-time and share an address. Now the party can rage on 24/7! And by party, I mean catching “Jeopardy” every night at 7:30, me going to bed by 9:30, and adventures in new recipes together. We are a pretty innocent bunch.
I am happy to report, though, that 3 weeks into it, things are sailing along as well as they ever have. Granted it is only 3 weeks, but if you can survive a move together, that is a pretty good sign.
Another big step for us was surviving our first golf game together! If you are a talented golfer, or date someone who is, then you know how stressful it can be to not have golfed for 7 years and take to the course with one of these people.
Now, I don’t take criticism well, and the man seems to do everything well, including golf, so I had to send up a warning flare before we even loaded our clubs into the car that the only way to maintain his livelihood through the 9th hole would be to keep tips and pointers to himself. This message was delivered in a much more charming manner than it reads though, I assure you.
I say all these things like we were moving and golfing while teetering on the edge of nuclear melt-down, but it is quite the opposite actually. It is great when you are a laid back person to be with a laid back person, and it really takes a lot to shake both of us. BUT, on the other end of that, I have seen, and been a part of these situations when they do not go so well. Things from moving to golfing can destroy a couple! If you can survive the little things like golf games all the way to the major stressors like moving, you’ve got a good partner in crime. I am very blessed to have mine, especially since he is willing to take me golfing any time I want to go 🙂
Wish me luck! This weekend I run the Bayshore Half Marathon. I don’t expect to be PR-ing in this race since my training has been less than consistent, but it should be a good time. I will update you all on how it goes!
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
Paul and me in another 3 weeks. 😉
This just made my day
