BIRTHDAY to James!
it's officially the first day of Spring! That was quick. Aside from
the Snowtrip to Tahoe and the month long stay up North, it didn't feel
like much of a winter this year. Perhaps it's because I stayed indoors
so much. The days of getting out of bed early to go to work and having
the cold morning air hit my face seems so long in the past. I definitely
do not miss warming up my car in the morning or occasionally scraping
the frost off my windshield. Today I was invited to meet some friends
at the park for a play-date, but I didn't get the email until it was
long over. Everyone I know who has kids tend to wake up pretty early...which
is normal. But we're a bunch of lazy-bones. Ashlyn sleeps until 11 or
noon every day, so we missed out on our very first play-date. =P
Glenda's single and every week I catch up on the trials and tribulations of her singlehood. Listening to her share exciting and sweet tales of potential suitors sometimes makes me miss being a bachelorette. You know, the butterflies and smiling like an idiot for no reason. Oh...or the nervous anticipation of the first kiss. =D *sigh* But then there's always the flipside...the confusion and stress of getting to know the person, what their intentions are, and if they're right for you. Over-analyzing everything before it comes to be. It shouldn't be that way. Letting nature take it's course is the way to go, but how often does that happen? Afterall, the female gender tends to think too much...not that there's anything wrong with that, but more often than not, it works against us rather than for us. So on the days that Glenda rants, I'm thankful that I'm no longer a bachelorette and that I don't have to worry about those things anymore.
Aric and I were such good friends for many years before dating, I never
encountered that with him. We knew everything about each other and each
other's past...so there were very little surprises. The only adjustment
we had was making the transition from being "just friends"
to being "romantically involved"....which was a bit scary
in the beginning, but we heavily relied on the trust built from all
those years of friendship. The transition was wonderfully exciting though.
It was getting to know and see a whole different side of someone you
were already comfortable with. I had the butterflies (ten times over)
and the idiotic smile was permanently stuck on my face. Trust and honesty
is the basis of our relationship.
