I didn’t want to make this post until later this week, but I feel so strongly about it that I wanted to post today.
It’s only been a week and a day since I’ve started my “live in nanny gig”. I knew it was going to be a long, strenuous ride, but I also knew that it is going to pay off in the end. After this passed weekend I felt recharged and I was definitely ready for the week to begin. I was able to fall asleep around 1 last night, and I slept soundly through the whole night.
Today I feel… Reminiscent. I’m seeing B tonight for a couple hours. We’re going to meet at the same Starbucks that we had our first unofficial date at. I was able to replay the whole first day that we met in my head. The text messages back an fourth felt so new and exciting, I could hardly wait to get out the door. I remember coming home to my parents house after work, I got ready and waited for his text so I could leave. I kept peeking out the window and I felt like I was in a high school fling again. I feel that today. It’s good to know that after a year and 5 months I still feel that newness and flurry of a skip in my heart beat that I felt the very first day we started talking, and it’s all because we’re spending a little time apart. I can truly say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I know that now, first hand.
Now excuse me while I start getting ready for my date.
