Living with wtbrosie has been going wonderfully. The only complaints I have are the commute and teh fact that I’m too far away from my friends to really hang out as much as I used to.
I promised people that I wasn’t going to get sucked into the black hole that is living with your partner (or the black hole that is living so far down on the South Shore!), and I don’t think I’ve really lived up to that promise. Not to mention the fact that we’ve travelled almost every weekend for the last two months. I WANT to see people, I miss my friends and kinda hope they miss me too. I feel like I’m losing touch with people I used to have a strong connection with, which is disheartening. So, I am taking it upon myself to be available Wednesday, June 17 after work. That is wtbrosie‘s cut-off week, so will give her some uninterrupted time to get work done–I’m even up for staying overnight with someone so I don’t have to worry about a possible late-night drive back to Plymouth.
There are lots of people that I want to see, an I can’t make time for every group, but I’m going to pick one night a month that I will guarantee availability. The travelling season is about to end for us, so we’ll be available (both as a couple and singly) for weekend outings soon too–driving is not a huge deal to us.
