Girl's Day Out!

While I don't know any of the details--how? when? where?--I am trying to plan ahead a little, and I am trying to enjoy this time.  So, my work bestie and I are going to a bridal show on Sunday!

I've always wanted to go to one of those shows/conventions so I asked Jazz if she would like to go. You know, there are some people who are always the bridesmaid and never the bride...well I've never even been a bridesmaid. I was the flower girl at my uncle's first wedding, but that's it, so I have very little wedding experience, except for going and sitting and watching everyone else be happy.

Sunday, Jazz and I are just going to go and have a fun time imagining and daydreaming and most importantly... eating cake!

Grr.

Today just hasn't been the greatest day.

You know, the crappiest parts about a really long distance relationship are the obstacles in communicating. All you peeps out there who can call your love bunny any time you want, you see each other several times a week, you text one another stupid selfies...don't take it for fucking granted.

I have always been ok with writing letters--there is something so romantic about handwritten letters. And this summer I got pretty spoiled because I could almost call whenever I wanted. Now the semester has started and my schedule is not as flexible and most days when I get off at 5, it is 1 a.m. there. So, I have to wait and call on the weekends.

That's all great in theory, except that now I not only have work, I have a class to teach, and I have two classes worth of homework and an internship to do so sometimes the weekends are pretty booked too. Last week I thought "Oh boy!!!! Three day weekend!!! I can call Sunday AND Monday!"

Yeah, no.

I tried calling Sunday...no answer. Frowny face. Well, there's still tomorrow, I think. Try calling today, he answers, but can't hear me. Call again, no answer. Call cell phone, no answer. Call home again, no answer.

Pissy face.

On top of that, there are a few people who keep expressing the same concerns and I feel like I just go round and round with them. Ugh.

Someday! Someday, he will be here and I will go to bed at night with him by my side and he will be the first thing I see in the morning. If won't be perfect, but maybe it will be good.

In the meantime, I have some fantastic señoritas who keep me going! Lins, Jackie and Jazz, I couldn't manage without you!

Well, excuse me, but a very large glass of wine is calling my name.

Everything will be ok.





Am I In A Time Warp?

Geez! As you get older you figure out that the adults in your life actually knew what they were talking about when you thought you knew bet...
