So after all that hype I guess you’re probably wondering how it went. You know, the meeting of the family. Or not. Whatev. The answer is – we’re still dating. So I guess there’s your answer. Of course two days after we got back he needed me to babysit his dog for four whole days, by myself, which is way more than 1.5 days with my family, so that could be why. We made it to Boston without a hitch. Made it to NH after a minor detour that resulted in me being super anxious and therefore being allowed to listen to country music for the rest of the drive. He’s a wise man.
He got a preview of the extended fam Friday night – promised not to remember anyone’s, which he did not. Promised my Gram he’d compliment her on her hair-do for the wedding, which he did. He’s good like that.
Met the kids in the church – I pointed to the row of people that all look like me. They all turned around to stare at him before the wedding started. The ceremony was beautiful – I could not be happier for the two of them. I forgot to bring the tissues from my gift bag the bride left for her out of town guests. That was a mistake. What? I’m a crier. Boyfriend rolls his eyes and laughs at me. We had a way fun time at the reception – I’m not a dancer but my little sisters were breaking. it. down. We did get in one slow dance in the beginning. He promised not to make me dizzy – proving that sometimes he hears what I tell him. (Noted.)
Anyway. He still loves me. And I still love him. And he went to Vegas to visit his family and left me with his dog, who I do not love, for four days, and I fed him when I was supposed to, so he was still alive when Boyfriend got home, so I say all’s well that ends well? He was all ‘you two bonded while I was gone didn’t you.’ Well if you call sitting in the computer room with the door closed while I got super awesome at my timed mahjong game for like six hours straight so he couldn’t come in and ruin my life with his vomit inducing farts again bonding, then yes, we did that.
|I'm so good at this game. You don't even know.|
The good news is, next time he goes to Vegas to visit his family I’m going with him. (!!) Which means – I will finally journey west of the Mississippi River. It also means that he has to love me at least until October because we already booked our flights.
In other news Half-marathon training starts today. T-minus 12 weeks. Also True Blood came back into my life last night. I think that’s everything. Happy Monday people.
