I’ve been feeling pretty antsy lately, wanting to move to the next thing. I’ve been really good about not saying a single thing about an engagement unless SO brings it up first. I kind of have to, I’ve got about nine months before I can consider going back to ‘waiting.’ Nine months until I wouldn’t feel bad for poking around about when we might be getting engaged. It’s a long story and I don’t really want to go into too much detail, but I guess I’m waiting to be waiting 😉
My SO and I are in a sort of temporary LDR. I’m not used to feeling this lonely, especially considering that I’m working in the tiny tiny city of my alma mater, and all my friends from college have moved elsewhere. With that, getting frustrated with my job, and wishing I could be officially waiting, I’ve been feeling all kinds of restless lately.
Yesterday I was talking to my SO, and I told him that I always miss him when he’s gone, but that I particularly did that day.
Well… at about 8:00 last night suddenly someone was trying to get in my apartment! And in came my SO! He drove to come spend the night with me, even though it meant him having to wake up and leave at 6:00 in the morning to drive back. Even though I will get to see him this weekend, anyway. =)
It just meant a lot to me. I was so excited to see him! Sometimes I get caught up in wanting to move on to engagement and marriage, but things like this remind me that I have an amazing Boyfriend or Best Friend and that I am happy to wait if in the end I get to keep him forever.
