I Saw the World Thrashing All Around Your Face

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.

Sounds like a fun-packed weekend. Enjoy your dancing, movie-watching and err, tax-filing. Well the first two anyway.

Seems like the two of you are pulling off the long distance thing rather well. Good.

Have fun this weekend, stay out of or get into lots of trouble...you choose.

I am so happy for you! It sounds like Erik is giving you the attention you so richly deserve. Yay!!!!!!!

Have a blast this weekend.

And what's this mythical stuff called "muck." You don't mean to tell me things are thawing out down there, do you??

Sounds like you're both working well on keeping the long distance relationship alive. That's great that you watched the lunar eclipse together. It's one of the nicest form of cellphone usage. :)

You can save sleep for work. Have a great weekend!

it's good to see a long-distance relationship work. You two seem like you're made for one-another.

I really do think a relationship can work, even if you can't be together all the time. And at least you two are close enough to visit at reasonable intervals.

I hope you are having a great weekend...can't wait to see the pix!
