thank you for all your kind replies to my last post! i was positively giddy at work today, and even though i have to wait almost a whole month (boo!) to move into my new cubicle, it feels good to know that i'm not doomed to answer phones forever. hooray!
to celebrate, i just booked a slightly fancy hotel for D and i this saturday night. i can't recall the last time we had a grown-up, romantic date night, and now just seemed like the time. we have something to celebrate, it's before the real tourist season makes everything in town crazy expensive, and a night to ourselves just sounds like fun. in the other house, when i was working at the hospital, we were spoiled with more afternoon alone time. i forget that being just alone with him is a good time, and i'm not just talking sexy-time. honest! the hotel is in downtown anacortes, where we can walk around for dinner and spend sunday goofing off. i've always been a huge fan of anacortes (remember when i lived there?), and while i've lived in the area most of my life, i've never stayed at the majestic, so that will be fun.
needless to say, i'm feeling pretty good about stuff right now.
