Stuck on you

5 March 2010

So a couple people have asked about “my boy” and how things are going… so here is another gushing update…

I’m settling in as a permanent resident of swoonsville.  It’s been a month and the butterflies haven’t gone away.  (OMG IT’S BEEN A MONTH TODAY.)  However, in this month I’ve spent a total of two weekends with him.  And that’s been it.

Last weekend was one of those.  We walked around the Art Institute until our stomachs kicks us out and took us to a tourist filled restaurant.  We giggled our way through the Lego store.  I brought him to enemy territory (the Apple store — he’s so a PC).  He survived a very quick trip to Victoria’s Secret (what? I *really* needed a new basic bra).  We dorked out at the robot store.  And Jaron got to feed a want (while I avoided temptation) and he got a Nook — but I did (finally) get a book of complete works from Charles Perrault (thanks to Jaron finding it!)…   That was all before dinner on Saturday.  Directly after he got off the train.

When you’re in a long distance relationship, you try to smash SO MUCH into whatever time you have together.  And whatever you do, you do your damnest to make sure it’s always together.  You are glued to each other.  It seems overwhelming to some, but it’s just a reality.  If Jaron was living in Chicago, yes, I could live without seeing him every free moment.

This month, I’m only going to get to see him for one day.  ONE DAY.  Probably less than 24 hours!  It’s only for the day before his birthday — I can’t even see him on his birthday.  It’s hard.  I miss him like crazy.  But we’re doing what we can.  We try to talk almost every day, even if it’s just something short.  He’s now on Glass with me, which is SUPER awesome.  And I’ve even talked him into blogging.  (No idea what he’s going to write about, and he’s admitted the same, but you can follow him here: Supposed to Win.)

I’m falling for this guy, completely and utterly falling for him.  There were moments this past weekend when looking in his eyes, when he held me, just seeing him smile… it was a feeling beyond words.  It’s those moments that make all the distance, all the time apart… it makes them worth it.

  • Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! And big yay. I love seeing you happy. =)

  • i see blog boy almost every other day, and it still never feels like enough…

    i also feel like i’m racing time, because in about 4 to 5 months i won’t get to see him again for a very very long time…

    i want to remember every moment, every kiss, every look and every caress…because I know in a few months, all i’ll have is memories…

      it is hard, but he’s not terribly far away. I can/could easily make day trips — depending on train schedule, and well, if I had a car it’d be easier. I’d totally love it if he moved to Chicago, but that’s his call and we’re making it work as best we can.

  • You’re giving me cavities

    Ps-Bad Boy and I have been together for a month as of last Friday. So ‘grats to both of us.

    PPS-yay butterflies.

  • Awwwwww so sweet to hear about love like that! It doesn’t come around all the time, I am happy that you have found it. If it is that wonderful, and feels right, then don’tcha let that go now girl. 🙂
