just thought i’d give an update on my situation: my life, at the moment, is crazy! these past couple weeks have been a really stressful time for me and SO because of projects we’ve been working on. we’re both in our senior year of college and getting into crunch time with all the things we need to finish for portfolios and thesis. SO especially has not been getting nearly enough sleep or food to function properly. right now, i feel like we’re sprinting to Thanksgiving where we can finally rest, and i can enjoy my first family thanksgiving with SO!
unfortunately, we won’t be spending Christmas or the rest of this year’s holiday season together, but last night in his sleepy, over-stressed stupor all he could talk about was “Our Christmas,” the year when we would finally get to have our own tree in our own place and enjoy it all together. it was so sweet!
it just reminded me of how much i want to spend my life with this man, and why i’m waiting. i think i’m finally understanding these “waiting cycles” people talk about. i’m not so impatient anymore…mostly, i’m just excited! also, it helps that i’ve started trying to plan for some way i can surprise him with something special. we joked last night that our entire engagment could be a series of propsals, each of us trying to one-up each other.
