Well kids, Fall is definitely here. Almost overnight, the trees here have all started to change, the chill is in the air, and I can make a case to drink hot chocolate almost every day now. Factor all of that in with the fact that it's sweater and cute boots season and there is football on almost all the time and those things on their own would make me a very happy girl.
But wait, there's more! In addition to reveling in the midst of my favorite season, I am also enjoying reveling in my situation with Twin. There, I said it. I'm happy with one person. I'll give you a second to get over the shock.
And apparently that happiness is making me a little on the boring side for some of my long-time followers as I have been told and the shenanigans aren't nearly as frequent or scandalous as they were a little while back. There are plenty of shenanigans and bedroom exploits going on still I assure you! I'm just not sure how much of that stuff I'm going to be sharing in this particular situation yet.
This weekend, we took our undefined situation to the next level.... I babysat his puppy while he went out of town to watch his team play on Sunday. Now that might not seem like a big deal in comparison to introducing a new person to your child or family but to him, it was a big step in the "I trust you" department. And all went swimmingly, aside from the fact that puppy barked pretty much the entire night Sunday. He's a puppy, they do that.
He came over yesterday to pick up puppy and properly thank me for taking good care of his baby while he went off to play. Thanks to us both having a fair amount of flexibility in our work situations, we were able to work together from home for the majority of the day. And we both actually worked, that's not code for anything, pervs! We went for lunch and had a nice extended play break in the afternoon, other than that, we were all business, I promise!
Last night, he sent me some pretty affirming texts, recognizing my hard work as a mom to the princess (who really likes him and his puppy btw)and realizing how hard I work at my profession and in my other pursuits. It was nice of him to recognize those things as they are important to me and are what I use to really gauge my value and worth overall as a person: How am I as mother and am I doing my best to be successful.
I needed that. The dude is quality, I'm telling you!
Between the game nights with friends, spending weekends together, working from home together on a few days, and having plans well through upcoming months, it seems that this thing might just be legit. And I'm not freaking out yet, I'm enjoying it. And I'm kind of looking forward to spending my favorite season with the Twin (and puppy too of course).
