So, I'll try to get that video thingy up on YouTube maybe sometime this weekend when I have more time...If I have more time. This weekend I'll be in town and trying to do a million things. I want to get my taxes done, I have to choose my new vision insurance, and I've planned dates to see girl movie matinees with both of my daughters. Of course, there's also cleaning and recycling and I might even get crazy and try to run outside in all the muck the next two days. As far as I know, I have plans for both nights too. I'm supposed to meet girls for drinks on Friday and Saturday night will be fun girl dance party at the Dublin. I have no idea how I'll fit sleep in there, but I'd like to do some of that as well.
Erik will be in New Orleans with a friend this weekend. Of course, I'll miss him a lot, but he promised to text me videos of all the people and places he experiences. It's kind of how we're able to pull off this long distance thing. Which, I've already mentioned is pretty tough for me.
Erik has been very good at making it work - he's done this many times before, but it's all new to me. I've told him what I need is reassurance and he's been great at giving me that. He's also been wonderful at making me feel like I'm part of his life, no matter how many miles away we are. We watched the lunar eclipse together over our cell phones last night and he called me during every commercial break while the debates were on tonight, so we could compare notes. He's probably more attentive than most guys I've lived with.
We are both very gregarious people, to say the least and obsessive documenters to boot. As Erik likes to say, we can certainly work a room together. So, this weekend, we'll have to work our rooms by ourselves, and then just text each other the videos of it. I can't wait to see the world through him.
