Adventures in Housesitting
November 15, 2009 § Leave a comment
So I guess I failed on doing the day to day thing. But hey at least Im back. Thats gotta count for something right?
This weekend was interesting. Normally my weekends are filled with not much of anything, but they go by in a flash. This weekend however seems very full. Happy. Comforting. Very fullfilling to say the least. And its all thanks to Elliotts dad, and a little thing called housesitting.
Elliott and I got to enjoy 2 lovely days not in a third story apartment with killer cats. Dont get me wrong, I love my apartment and I especially love my cats. But staying in a house makes you feel so…comforted and stable. Plus we got to hang out with my favorite Husky, Max! Friday night we had fast food which I was paying for later on in the night and watched tv and played Smash Bros. Something we havent played in a long time and it was super fun and nostalgic. Saturday was filled with shopping at the mall, which normally Elliott does not have much tolerance for but I am pleased to say he was so patient and calm that it was very relieving for me. We had a great home cooked spaghetti and meat sauce meal with the company again of Charlie Sheen. Today we walked the dogs which completely wore them out and just relaxed before packing up and heading back to reality.Work rears its ugly head tomorrow and we will be thrust into returning to the “real world”. But thats okay, we all have to do it.
I love being able to do these things because it shows me a picture of my future. How my life with Elliott will eventually play out. Together in a house with our dog and just loving and enjoying each other everyday. I cannot wait to have a house of our own with no shared walls, no annoying neighbors, no shared dog pooping areas, and no stairs to climb. I can’t wait to be able to look at the life we have created and now there is so much more in store. But for now I am completely happy sharing my life with him in our thirs story apartment, with our cottonball dog and four flights of stairs. I enjoy my life. Killer cats and all.
