I completely forgot what it was like to have a boyfriend. I was so used to spending my weekends on my own, napping, reading and watching football. Today it was kind of the same but way better.
We have spent the day just lounging on the couch but I also ran out for a bit to see what ATL had on sale, get a much needed pedi and run through the grocery store. The pedi was the best part of my running around though. I got back home and Chandler was on the couch just watching tv and I believe having an ongoing argument with Wookie.
We put the ornaments on the tree and I shared with him some of the ones that have special memories to me. He also asked if I had any Snoopy ornaments. . . sarcasm at its best. Yes, my tree looks like it has thrown up way too many Snoopy ornaments. But that is just the way I like it.
I started cooking dinner and while it is a simple thing, preparing a meal, it was such a nice feeling to sit at the table with him and eat. We also exchanged a few burps because hey, I am an adolescent boy at heart.
But this holiday season is going to be nice. In my adult life, I have never dated someone that lived in this vicinity. So I was always celebrating early with whoever I was dating and then traveling back here to sleep in a twin bed at my parents. This year I will get to spend some time with him and really enjoy it all.
I am taking this all in and appreciating every moment because this is special. He appreciates my childlike take on the holidays, he is willing to go to Rock City to see the lights with me and most importantly, he wants to be here, with me.
That part of me that was so concerned about making sure I had my me time went away. I would get antsy as the time past at work, waiting to leave, knowing that I would see him soon. And this week, well I am on vacation so that means spending even more time with him. While I wish that physical therapy hadn’t cost an arm and a leg so I could go to NYC, I am quite excited for my staycation.
I am ready for more time on the couch, watching tv and laughing. And I have a few more things to put out for Christmas. Then it will be time to tackle my Christmas card list, the one that I was not so interested in last year. I would suggest a holiday card from the two of us but that is so Friends and if he is truly Chandler, things could get spastic around here. So for now, hand written notes in cards to my friends with well wishes and love, from me and the cat.
And now it is time to watch a little more football! Man I love this but apparently I am going to be taught just how wonderful baseball is this coming spring. Now that will be interesting.
