Of course this week went no where how I planned & everything took twice as long as it should. I’ve been running around trying to get my condo contract in order because someone forgot to write that the stove & refrigerator are included, work has been insanely busy with orders, had a writer’s group meeting on character sketches, bought a mattress, & barely got to see CJ for more than about 5 minutes so I’m looking forward to the next few days. Ever get a fortune cookie that is dead on accurate?? I don’t mean the ones that are like “The fight will be won when you embrace the butterfly”, No I mean the ones that say stuff like this…I swear I got this one at dinner last night:
It couldn’t be more right. Tomorrow I’m leaving NY to go to Chicago with CJ! Yup, Ferris Bueller’s Day off here I come!! I’m trying to keep cool, calm, & collective about the plane ride. I don’t like plane rides, but I did get someone to give me Xanax so I’m going to take a half & see how it goes. The flight however is at 6:05 in the morning. *Gulp*. I can’t sleep on planes so it should be interesting. I can’t wait to see a new city though. For some reason I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago, now I’m getting my chance! I’ve never been off of the east coast. It should definitely be an adventure.
One drawback of living with your parents which both CJ & I do is alone time. I don’t mean *Cough Cough* but yeah know just enjoying each other’s company & getting to know the other person better without a parent interrupting or asking us a question. That’s also one thing I’m looking forward to having my own place too & those moments where nothing else matters. We’re still learning & growing I hope & somehow meeting in the middle with things. He calls me “Mel-a-babe”. Lol. Cj is quirky & fun & I don’t want to change a thing about him. We’re going to be spending some time with his family too out there in Chicago so that should be enlightening!
This summer has been such a time of change for me & all for the better. I’ve actually gone to 2 states I’ve never been to, bought my first place, found a boyfriend who treats me better than I could ever hope for, gained some self-confidence & acceptance of my life, & I honestly for the first time in years don’t feel so lost. When I come back from Chicago I might have to change around my “About Me” part of this blog. Also for once I’m not waiting for the ball to the drop. I feel like I’m living…I’m liking it a lot.
I’ll be back on Tuesday with sooo much to talk about! For now here are some upcoming events I will be going to & writing about if you’d care to continue to follow me or join in on the fun!
