@tenacity: Haha, I was wondering if I was reading that right or if he was somewhere else, but I figured I would just go with it :p I’ve had a bit of Australia on the brain, if you couldn’t tell At least you two are on the same continent :p How far apart are you guys? How old are your boys? Mine are 15 and 11, their birthdays are coming up the end of summer. Do yours fight ALL THE TIME? Ugh! They are so eager to meet the Boyfriend or Best Friend, but I talked my mom into taking them overnight tonight and all day tomorrow to give us at least ONE day of privacy, to get over the jet lag 😉 That and he didn’t really want to meet them all grungy from being on the plan, not the first time anyway. The older one is much more open about things, he was actually in my room last night, saw that I had bought new candles as decor (I just redecorated the bedroom) and said “You’re gonna have sex mom, just admit it!” I just about wet myself, I was laughing so hard. I mean, what do you say to that? :p The younger one was really broken up about the divorce (which was over 4 years ago, and we were separated a year before that) but I think he’ll come around, and he is excited to meet the Boyfriend or Best Friend. (at least he’s stopped mentioning me getting back together with daddy, for the most part- thank GOD, because that isn’t gonna happen EVER. I try to be diplomatic about it and such, but it’s a difficult thing yanno?) Their dad has had like 4 GFs in the meantime, while I’ve had the same Boyfriend or Best Friend the whole time, so at least I’m stable 🙂 I really, really hope they get along. Being “instant family” so to speak is going to be tough on the Boyfriend or Best Friend, because he’s not used to being around kids much, aside from his cousin, who’s 10. I think we’ll have bumps, but hopefully nothing major 🙂
The Boyfriend or Best Friend finally made it, after 38 hours travel time I’m SO happy, I almost cried on the way to the airport I was so excited :p He crashed out just a bit ago, but I couldn’t sleep so I’m making a couple of updates before going back to bed 🙂 I’m sure his sleep schedule will be messed up and he’ll be up at the crack of a$$ tomorrow, and I am NOT a morning person, haha! But it’s worth it 🙂 I’m so on cloud 9 right now *happy sigh* 🙂
@Irish Terrier: I just may take you up on some questions; it’s good to know someone who’s done it, as opposed to just putting a question up somewhere randomly 🙂 Thank you, I appreciate that 🙂 That sucks that the post office held things up for you : That’s the worst part, that you have to mail so much crap back and forth. You’d think more things could be done digitally, but I guess with having to have things notarized that doesn’t work. Bummer. I know the police checks, the physical and the interview are going to throw the Boyfriend or Best Friend into a tizzy, with having to go to Sydney to get the interview done, and having to go to a major city for the physical (he lives in a mining town now, not sure where the closest place for a physical will be once he moves to Tassie) And it really sucks that out of that whole country, there’s only one place you can do the interview. What a pain. Currently, he’s a 7 hour flight from Sydney, but once they move it will only be 3 or so. That’s expensive though once you add it up; flying there, getting a hotel room, etc. Well, we knew this wouldn’t be cheap, and it will be worth it. Especially after getting to see each other today, just another reminder of how right things feel and now we need to make our decisions and get a move on :p I am hoping we’ll be able to do that soon. I don’t know how long he’ll need to decide if he’ll be comfortable moving here or not, hopefully not too long i want to know now! xD (I’m impatient, lol)
Okay gals, I’m going to head back to bed with my sleeping sweetheart – Happy trips to you all *hugs* and may you all be as gloriously happy as I am today 🙂 (I sound so cheesy but I really am deleriously giddy :p ) Night!
