The Convo...

Last night Nick had the conversation with my parents asking them for permission for my hand. Okay, that is totally not what he said, but it is the main concept behind what he did. I think that things went well. I know that he was super nervous and all parties involved would have prefered that this was done in person. However, this was/is the way it happened, and I really don't see anything wrong with that.

So, now on to the proposal. Sometime. Soon. I think.

Asking for their blessing

So, this is really happening. Nick is getting ready to ask for my parent's blessing to marry me. Holy crap! Seriously?! Since he can't do it in person, he made a photo book and had it shipped to their house. The book does not ask them for permission, but it does briefly tell the story of us and talks about how wonderful he thinks I am. It is cute--yeah, I have seen a copy of it because he created it online. We both thought that it would get there sometime next week, but nope! It will arrive tomorrow. TOMORROW! I think that means that Nick will attempt to talk with my parents this weekend. Oh goodness!

I am feeling a little giddy and all over the place. Wow! Even though this is all happening, I can hardly believe that this is all happening. Yeah! I just pray that it all works out like we want it to. I am ready to get this show on the road. :)

What now?!

I am so very ready for it to be Spring Break. This month has DRAAAGGGGGED on and on! We are going to spend ten days together. He will have to work part of the time, so I will sleep in everyday and go pick him up at noon. It will be nice, and I am excited to be able to spend so much time with him. I hope that we will be able to plan some things and look at some neighborhoods we would like to move in to. I am anxious to plan, plan, plan! Planning is always my favorite part--I like to plan and then delegate and supervise. I am generally pretty good at it. I work hard to make sure my plans come to fruition though. I have a harder time delegating things when I know that I can just do it myself than I let on. Perhaps this is why I am flipping out about my kid's research papers. Or maybe I just want them to be responsible and do their work. I don't know! Maybe I push them too hard--ha! Not likely...

The Hunt

So, here I am again--hunting for a job in Texas. I passed test #3, and I have one more to go. I will take this in April. Then the testing process will be done, and the waiting for my official license will begin. As long as I have it by the start of school, I think I will be okay. I just hope that there is a school willing to hire me without the official license. I am starting to get nervous.

I am also playing impatient. I am really ready to go to Texas. I feel as if things here are not really so wonderful right now. My life is not here--it is hundreds of miles away from where I physically live. I am stressed out at work, and my personal life (other than with Nick) makes no sense right now. This is making it very easy for me to want to leave. Today there is nothing holding me here.

I am looking forward to Spring Break. I will spend all ten days in Texas. I will need all ten days in Texas to decompress. My body tenses and tenses and tenses until I am ready to explode, and when we are together, I relax. I wish it wasn't so obvious that I need him so much. I am amazed that I am at that point.

We spent a really great weekend in Las Vegas. Kristie got married there, and we went to be a part of that with her. This picture is of us there. :)
