When they did not get delivered Sunday, I was torn. Do I mention it? Or just wait til end of day today to bring it up? And then today I was in a panic because I could not find any proof that I had actually sent flowers. I ordered them at work and for some reason I closed that tab with order number in it. I did have a marketing email from them but it was useless.
And then I checked my SPAM folder and there was the confirmation email. And I checked the status and was told that the florists were too damn busy to be updating things and to check later.
I didn't need to. I went to my FB page and there I saw photos of roses on her Wall. Not quite sure they were the ones I sent, I counted the number. Okay that matched. Then I got a message from her. She was happy. I was happy.
She said I had made her day.
When I got home tonight. There was a card from her in my mailbox. And a box. In the box was a single silk rose. Chocolate. Lollipop. A ceramic bear. A stuffed puppy. Strawberry Shower Gel.
I went to the gym. Came back and watched The Social Network. It sucked. I wasn't expecting it to be my next movie because the last I checked it was listed as VERY LONG WAIT. Alas there it was today. So to maximize the amount of movies I watch, I popped it in tonight so I can mail it tomorrow and have another Thursday. January I got 13 movies.
Just as it finished she called. It was a short call. So there we are.
First meeting EVAR is planned for May. Nervous, not because I get nervous meeting new people anymore, but nervous in that, what if it goes well? I mean things are moving along. I've sent roses, albeit just 6, but still. We've planned a cross country road trip in August.
I'd drive down to visit her this weekend except that it's 10 hours, that's why I went with Memorial Day weekend, that Monday is my travel back to my apartment day. Although I'm thinking a half day on that Friday too.
When I first moved out here, I stayed at a Bed and Breakfast for 3 weeks til I found the apartment. One of those weekends the owner told me that they had guests that weekend as courtesy so I wasn't parading around naked downstairs. He said that they were a couple that were in a LDR. She lived up north, he down south and this B&B was half way.
I thought that it was crazy. But now. I don't know.
