My mother asked me today why I don’t blog anymore. Well, a few reasons. I do most of my internetting from my phone now, and typing out long diatribes in my rather rambly style is a pain in the ass on a phone.
But, I have something to say, so this seems like a good time.
So I have this boyfriend, right? I’m pretty fond of him. Actually, to be frank, I’m head over heels in love with the silly boy. He makes me so crazy happy that I honestly don’t have words for it. We just work together. It’s pretty great.
Every single time we’ve had a disagreement over something, or any sort of personal drama … it’s just so easy to sort out. Every time I get bent out of shape, he gently helps me back to the Correct Shape, and life is even more grand. He’s patient with me when I’m ridiculous, silly when I get too serious, and … well, let’s just say that he complements me perfectly.
So last night, I worked a night shift, getting home at around midnight. We ended up working through something, and around 2am went to sleep completely happy with everything. And that’s sort of the trend. Yeah, things come up, but there’s no problem that we can’t sort out with love, understanding, caring, patience, yaddy yaddy all that crap.
I woke up this morning at 6:30 because purposely planning a short turn at work is a brilliant plan, especially when you stay up until 2am. Sleep drunk and still incredibly pleased with the wonderful man in my life, an hour later I pounced on him and asked him to marry me. I feel like after 5 hours of sleep is not the time to be asking someone to make a life changing decision. Whatever, it felt right. And he said yes. I’m traditional, right? And romantic. Very romantic. You can tell.
Don’t worry — I checked in a few hours later after caffeine and food had made him perfectly capable of making decisions and phew, we were actually on the same page.
So it seems that I’m getting married… to the best person I’ve ever known. He’s my friend, my love, my companion, my partner in crime. He balances me out, takes care of me, and makes me feel safe and warm and good. I never knew it could be this amazing, this easy, this ideal.
Thanks, Dan. The last year and a half have been the best of my life, better than I ever realized was possible. I already share my life with you, so that’s not going to change… but let’s keep this amazing thing we have going. It’s going to be great.
