He's a Keeper!

I've had a few questions about whether the wedding is still on and the answer is yes but I'm not sure when. As much as I'd like to end this saga of "living in sin" according to my parents, unemployment has had it's way of changing the perspective a bit. It's not him but me. I want to know that I'm bringing something to the table. I want to feel productive and valuable once again, like I did when I was working. At this point, my conversations consist of what the dogs did all day long, what job leads I followed, new recipes I've found, news reports on tv and what I'm working on as far as writing goes. That's not me. I love being able to share with him more than the fact that Humble, the dog, barfed three times and some of it was Sam's rubber squeak squeak.

Either way, Boo loves me, unemployed or not. Yesterday, my twin and I went to stay at a spa resort for a girls' getaway. Had I not promised Boo I'd behave myself, I probably would've gotten into tons of trouble. But, right when I was ready to suggest that my sis and I knock on doors at 2 am and then run, I heard Boo's voice of reason..."I don't have the money to bail you out of jail so behave."

We made the most of it and countless times, we laughed so hard we were wiping tears out of our eyes. But, when I got home, what awaited me was the most precious thing ever....a dozen long stem roses and a bottle of Chardonnay. Boo MISSED me! I was only gone for a day and he MISSED me!!!

I'll be going to NC in October for about four days. He's going to need therapy by the time I return home!

It is good to be loved!

Yes, love is grand! I love his advice to you and your sis. I will have to remember that myself.

' Just shows how precious you are on your own with or without the money. Love is a many splendorous verb. Sounds like you have a good man there. Enjoy your weekend!!!

You have definitely found a keeper of a man in him. He can allow you to spend time away doing a girls day at the spa and still show you what you are worth by the roses and wine.

He sees something far beyond the potential income you could be bringing home. He founds someone he truly loves and who completes him.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Have you thought about volunteering at a hospital or somewhere else for a few hours per week? You seem to be a talented and creative person. Don't let yourself get bored and frustrated because it will weigh on your relationship with Boo. Having a good man is a good thing, but having self-contentment is even better. Blessings.
