I’m thankful for 29

My days are limited here in the beautiful state of Hawaii with my love. I’m going to leave my sorrow-filled depressing posts for the future and instead focus on the time I have left with him before I go back home to my empty reality.

oops a little depressing slipped in, sorry.

I do have that problem, where if I know something great is coming to an end, I’ll get distant, drawn, quiet and short with them. Its so hard to fight, and be able to enjoy the last moments because I get upset they have to end. Its something, to this day, I’m working on.

So as I look back at this past week, I’m thankful for:

- cooking real meals. Not just the boil water, stick ramen noodles in, kind of cooking. Full on healthy nutritious meals that fill the belly with happiness, meals. I think my body has been happy for real food this past couple of weeks.

- time spent with my love. ‘nuff said.

- my sweet friend coming to spend the day with me on her day off. The talks that we had were much enjoyed.

- G-man telling me I can have his brand new iPad. Even though I keep talking him out of it and currently have him convinced to ‘hold onto it for now’, I know he will eventually give it to me. His generosity is overwhelming and undeserved. I do love him so.

- experiencing new things with my love. Driving down a new street, climbing a few rocks, eating Malasadas for the first time. Whatever they may be, I love I get to do these new things with him.

- quiet relaxing moments by the pool. There’s something about the sound of the wind blowing through the trees that makes me instantly relax.

- my love treating me to a day of pampering. As he was walking out the door to go to the college football game, he came back in, placed his hands on the back of the couch, looked at me and said, ‘I want you to get a massage. Get a facial too. And get your nails done, the mani/pedi thing. My treat. And if you don’t, it’ll hurt my feelings.’
everywhere I called to go were booked for the massage/facial, but I got my mani/pedi and love them! And him for treating me!

- and of course, the fact that I got to be here in Hawaii. Everything worked out to have me come here and being here was the best thing for this girl.

How did your weekend go? Was it chalk full of activities or quiet and relaxing?

Pin It Now!

I totally know that feeling of dread-- when the time is approaching to leave your loved one(s) behind. It SUCKS! I think it's totally normal to become withdrawn and have a hard time being chipper those last few days...I always started missing Jon a few days before he (or I) left... it was inevitable. So, don't be too hard on yourself. It just means you love the man a heckuva lot! Love your mani/pedi! It's awesome to be pampered every once in a while... I like that he said it would hurt his feelings if you didn't go... what a guy! Enjoy your last days there! (I did nothing exciting this weekend, except bawl my eyes out and be hormonal. haha)

I'm the same way with the dread thing except I do it when we're apart for even a short time. I have to pick a fight every time! This is why I could never do the long distance thing. We would fight every day. My hat is off to you.
I'm honestly so glad that you guys are together and having a great time. You so deserve it!
Were you able to watch any of that game last night, or did we tweet the entire time? I know that my cheesecake making took three times as long thanks to you and LeAnna :-)

Laura Elizabeth said...

Aw, this post made me happy! Love hearing about your beautiful time in Hawaii and all the wonderful things you've gotten up to. Even though the time is ending, you'll always have precious memories and photographs.

Hmm... my weekend? It was actually kinda fun. I did about zero percent of school work but I got to see my mum who just came back from visiting her parents so that was great! I'm such a baby, I always miss my mum when she's not just a phone call away!!!!
