Well, this is no April Fools prank, thankfully. Back in 2015, my SO listened to me bellyache and moan about how terrible all the blind dates I’d gone on were. He’d known me for quite some time while I was married to my not-so-great ex-husband. He was a huge support and friend during my divorce. And somehow … he did eventually convince me to start dating him. We long-distance dated from April first. Because only fools believe in love.
We eventually were able to meet. I came down to visit for Memorial Day. We finally met in person and I knew from that moment on that I was not going to be able to continue long-distancing. I wanted to be with him forever. I spent a week visiting my SO and managed to line up a job and apartment in his state. I went back to Michigan, where I was living at the time, and gave my notice. I packed everything that I could into my car. The rest went into my storage unit. I actually panicked about how much I wasn’t able to bring and had a complete meltdown.
My SO drove up the day I was supposed to move. Left his state for the first time EVER. To bring his car up and load it with as much stuff as we could fit. So that day, we made the trek back down! Him in his car. Me, my bunnies, and my cockatiel in mine. Let me tell you, that’s real love. Any friends that are ever willing to help you move. They love you. Significant others that help you move? They love you! Especially ones that help you sneak a buttload of beats into a hotel room overnight when you’re moving and realize you are exhausted and can’t drive anymore. Haha.
So seven years later, I couldn’t be happier! So this was mostly a happy anniversary post to my SO. The drawing I did of him was an older one I did at some point. As for the month of April…
I’ve got my bullet journal started and I’ll be working on actually doing that this month as well as my SMART goal! So let’s see how that goes. I’m going to continue my self-care goals from last month and practice more self-love and being gentle with myself. I actually have an appointment with my therapist today so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve had trouble communicating with my therapist. I know that I sound so well put together when I talk to the therapist during my phone appointment, but then the rest of the time I feel like a hot mess. Does anyone else ever feel that way too?
Thanks for stopping in today and checking out my post!
