"I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!" ~ Buddy the Elf
I love Elf. It's been on TV like 10 times in the last 2 weeks and I have watched some of it every time. The line above keeps going through my head.
Jason will be home in 23 days. I, being a completely cheesy romantic at heart, actually found a countdown script and uploaded it so I can check every so often and gush. Amazing that we stared at 70-something and are now down to almost three weeks. My how time flies!
He played Santa at a base Christmas gig and modeled the suit for me. This is one of the reasons why he is the kind of guy I could be with forever...
Anyway... Just wanted to stop in and let everyone know I'm no dead. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

*yawn* Yay for half days. I can stay up until 1:30 in the morning the night before, doing nothing even mildly productive, and then sleep in. Kind of like having dessert before dinner... Sleeping in before the weekend. Anyway, I'm well rested and that's good.
The trip to Washington was great. Just long enough. If I had stayed out there any longer, with my family anyway, it would have gotten ugly. We all love each other so much, but when you get that many strong personalities together, you burn out on each other fast and start to butt heads when we're together 24/7. Anyway, here are some pics:
This is a pic I took from the plane on the way over. The sky was so beautiful!
Flying over the Rockies. I was in absolute awe over how huge they are, even from 5 miles up.
On the beach in...I think it was Whitefield? I will have to look it up. Pacific coast.
Dunes and grass, Pacific coast.
Lovely afternoon stroll in a local park.
Me with a Broadleaf maple leaf -- they're HUGE!
This was in my brother's living room... 4 guys living together. I thought it was funny. The flower's dead, but hey: it's got water!
I can't remember what kind of tree my sister said this was, but it was wicked pretty.
Ben, Dabney and I (the short one) on the boardwalk in Olympia.
On the boardwalk in Olympia. That is one tall chick!
Japanese garden in Olympia.
Anyway... More of the same here -- nothing ever really changes dramatically. Well, except one thing, but I hesitate to get into major details about my lovelife (though I am sorely tempted!) because I don't want to violate the other person's privacy (or jinx myself!) but I guess I could post a little somethin' somethin'... Don't have to use names and pictures, right?
I am falling madly in love with my coworker's brother...who just happens to be in the Air Force and stationed in the UK until October 2008. Don't know where he'll end up after that (possibly Hanscom AFB in Mass., but more likely somewhere out west), but at this rate, I will be right behind him... I am kind of glad we have 2 years to either succeed or fail at the long distance thing; it kind of keeps me in check. Can't do anything rash right now. Also can't confuse sex and love, which has been a weakness of mine in the past. It's like the cosmos have delivered to me a simultaneously impossible and perfect relationship, tailored to test and reward me in ways I could never imagine.
That indefinable "thing" that I was missing with Jay is here.. Although I do have the rational part of my brain still turned on, if he asked me to marry him tomorrow, it would be hard to say no -- though I know that would be totally crazy, not to mention the havoc it would wreak with both our families, so for now, I am content to just want to say yes... Where every relationship I have ever had has had some element of unsurity (some minor, most major -- and is that even a word? :-P), this does not.
Anyhoo, he's coming back to the states for Xmas. We've spent at least 2 hours every single day since September chatting via Yahoo with webcams. I feel like I've known him forever. We have met in person, briefly, but December still feels like we'll be meeting for the first time. *sigh* I got it so bad!!
*sigh* I should go find something productive to do. Maybe take the Goon for a walk. It's gorgeous out and who knows when it will be again, so I probably should get my ass outside.
Hope everyone's having a great week. Kisses all around!
