life is good

Life really is good these days!  Sure, we're in the midst of the neverending winter.  Sure, spring seems an eternity away.  But we are having a nice little break this week, and we may hit 60 on Friday!  I can't wait, and already the mornings feel bearable and warmer.  I am not excited for below average temps and possible snow next week, but the end can't be too much further away!

Work is going well this week.  I took Monday off to get a bunch of things done.  I got some maintenance done on my Honda, saw my trainer, took a cat to the vet for a checkup, and ran a few other errands in between.  It felt good to check so many things off my list!  I also made a nice roast with some vegetables in the crockpot, and BF and I had that for dinner, as he joined me late in the afternoon.  We watched The Walking Dead and just enjoyed hanging out.

I met his daughter on Saturday.  It went even better than I could have hoped.  :-)  She's thirteen, and so I didn't know what to expect.  We met for lunch at a place of her choosing (Mexican) and while it was a bit awkward at first, it improved.  We all ran a couple of random errands together after (Target, I kid you not), and I bought us all Starbucks before we left Target.  She then invited me back to BF's house to watch "The Wiz" with them, as that's the school musical she's in.  We watched the movie and then I stayed for dinner upon invite.  I left after that because I didn't want to push it, but BF informed me that she'd been looking for tickets for me for "The Wiz" on the way from Target to their house, so I am going with BF to opening night of her musical on the 28th.  :-)  I guess we'd call that a success?  She dressed up for lunch (more than her usual weekend attire with Dad) and was frigging adorable.  They have a really cute relationship and it was nice to see him in that light, since before it was just an abstract idea.

Things continue to go so well.  This weekend he told me that I am the best thing to happen to him in a long, long time.  It was really nice to hear, and nice to feel back!  This is all just so vastly different than anything I've encountered in years, and I'm grateful for it everyday.  He is so good at telling me the same thing, how he is lucky to have found me, and when he misses me, and giving sincere compliments when he feels them. This whole thing just feels good and true and like he's fitting into my life like he belongs there.

Anyway, I also have a fun week planned for the rest of the days.  Tonight is just the trainer, but I plan to watch the women's figure skating afterwards because I am still a sucker for that.  :-)  Thursday BF is coming over and we're going out to dinner with my gf, A, and she will be the first friend to meet him.  I'm excited for them to meet, as it somehow makes everything more real.  Friday I have an appt. to get my highlights done and a haircut, so I always feel awesome after that!  That night is a comedy show with a group of friends, and probably going out for drinks after.  Saturday I'm doing lunch with my old neighbor friend, and then heading over to BF's that evening.  Hopefully it will be nice enough for us to grill!  I will stay out that way until Sunday, too.

So many fun things to look forward to in the coming weeks!  Plus, I cannot wait for spring to start peeking around the corner....

  3. Glad the meeting the daughter went well! It could have been a kiss of death otherwise. And she seems like a mature 13 yr old to be so welcoming to her dad's girlfriend. He's seems like he's a keeper!
