I’m heading back to NYC today (it’s 7am here at the moment!) I’m so excited to be going home.
Thank you for all the congratulations I’ve received on Facebook and here! I appreciate you guys’ support a lot. But, I’ll be very honest. I’m scared as shit to make this transition. I’m still young, and Obj. is much older. My brother sat me down yesterday and asked me to make sure I’m ready for this, and since that chat, I’ve felt nervous over this whole thing. Am I really making the right choice? I love Objection, but arg! Maybe this is just a 24 hour worry that people get when they first get engaged, but I’m sure I’m worrying over nothing.
Also, a lovely thank you to the person who sent me on my paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org and asked me to donate it. I doubled it and gave it to a church nearby my grandmothers house that helps children! There will be some warm kids for 2012!
I’m also really excited to state that this blog has gone over it’s 10,000 views mark after 3 months. 3,300 views a month isn’t bad. It’s really motivating!
For those lovely people who were wondering if Objection and I got that lovely huge apartment… No, we didn’t. We got one a bit smaller in the same side of town. Objection has also had a job offer to another state, but more about that once I get to my beloved NYC!
Every Christmas I go to France to see my family. We visit my grandmother andgrandfather who lives in the French countryside in a huge, but rustic cottage. My aunts and uncles visit with their children, and their children bring their children. It’s honestly a wonderful gathering on Christmas Eve where we talk about life, make fun of my father for his bad French, cook all day long, play with the children and tell them about Pere Noel and give and receive meaningful presents.
I love Christmas! I ADORE CHRISTMAS!! I FUCKING LOVINGLY ADORE CHRISTMAS!!!
All of the above.
So I’m now booking my tickets for December, and I’ve invited Objection to come. Objection has already met my parents (got to love Skype, they’ve actually talked to him a lot lately) They’re already very aware of him, who he is, how we met, and that we’re now a couple and getting quite serious. My family is happy for me and happy that I’m bringing Objection. As my mother said “merveilleux!”
I think Obj. is pretty excited too, because he usually spends Christmas’ alone. Obj. family isn’t the greatest, and he’d rather avoid them at all costs, so instead of Mr. O spending Christmas alone, the poor guy gets to spend it in a huge French family where we’ll make fun of his bad French like we do with my dad (and trust me, he tries, but he isn’t great) and we’ll make sure he overeats. (Plus, when my grandmother found out, she was convinced one goose wouldn’t suffice for my father and Obj because ‘Americans have large appetites!’ and that she needed two just for them)
I’m extremely excited and happy!
