Today marks seven months together for Doug and I. I find myself more in love with him every single day. We have been through so much in seven months. He lost his mother, my grandma had a stroke and was also diagnosed with Dementia, he’s had issues with work, I am still looking for work, various family and friends issues, my mood swings, etc….but we have found it easier to get through all of that knowing we’re not alone and any problem one of us faces, we decided it’s not just their problem…it’s ours and we will band together as friends and as a couple and see one another through everything.
We take our next step in our relationship next week. He closes on the house he’s buying on May 23rd, which is my mom’s birthday. 🙂 We’re moving in together. It’s scary and exciting at the same time. While we practically live together now, we know it will be different actually living underneath the same roof, but we’re ready. One more week and then everything changes! I move out, my uncle moves back in, but I am still going to be checking on my grandma and taking care of the house until she goes into an assisted living place. This will be huge for Doug, owning a house. He’s a little nervous, but mostly excited, well, we both are. I can hardly wait to see what lies ahead for us….
It’s a beautiful day here! It’s sunny and warm, no chance of rain! So, I think I am going to go make the most of it in a few moments before I have to go do some work for Doug’s dad. What a blessing he’s been, his whole family really. Later, he will grill out for Doug, himself, & I. It’s going to be a lovely evening!!! The only way this day could get any better is if my friend’s bar is able to open tonight, making the venture for he, his mom, and everyone connected to this a reality. I am excited for this as well! Oh and, if I could just get a job offer too. 😉 But either way, it is a good day, so now it’s time to go make the best of it…hope you’re all able to do the same!
