Two years ago today, I was sitting in a hotel room in Atlanta where I was working a show. pixie117 was back here in So Cal where she was getting herself settled in after our epic journey across the country in the Mighty Focus with her incredibly large puppy dog who seemed to enjoy belching in my ear (the dog, not the girl) and her cat tucked safely away in her carrier. We'd trekked across some of the wastelands of this country but eventually made it out here. I reflected on that journey a little bit before I decided to ask her if she wanted to make things official between us. We were of course, already unofficially together but you know, it was a case of it not being "official" until it's "Facebook official" and all... because nothing in the world *really* happens until it's posted on Facebook.
So yeah... two years ago, pixie117 foolishly agreed to make our relationship official and we've been together ever since. And it's been an amazing two years. She's an incredible woman filled with so much strength, courage, compassion and love. She picks me up when I'm down, encourages me to excel, to be better than I ever thought I could be and kicks me in the ass when I need it. She has brought more joy and happiness into my life than I ever thought possible and I'm grateful for every last moment I get to spend with her. She inspires me and helps me strive to better my world. She's an absolutely amazing person, we fit together so well in so many ways and I feel like the luckiest boy ever.
Thank you for two wonderful and amazing years, sweetheart. You are the best.
So yeah, that happened. :-)
Last night was my sister's birthday. I made her favorite dish... seafood fettuccini. I didn't realize that I made it for her every year on her birthday but apparently, I do! But I know it's her favorite and I only make it that one time a year so I suppose that's okay. I think it turned out pretty well though pixie117 could probably tell you whether it did or not.
Not sure what the plan for today is... likely a lot of much needed downtime with one another. We'll likely grab some dinner or something but I see lots of mellowness and relaxation in our immediate future. Tomorrow, I has a plan for something but we'll have to see how that goes. There are a couple of factors like Miss Annabelle to consider. But just getting to spend the weekend together will be nice. It always is. And bonus points for her roommate not being around this weekend. That means we can just totally relax and sleep in the air conditioned living room if we so choose! Oh yes, it's all about the simple pleasures in life. lol...
So how about you, my fine, feathered friends? What sort of milestones are you hitting this week? How has the Universe been treating you? Has it given you a warm and gentle hug? A kick to the junk with a steel toed boot? What have been the highlights and the lowlights of your weekend? What is going on in your worlds, my friends?
As usual, this is the place to get anything off your chest that needs to be gotten off! Got a blistering rant to unload? Need to trumpet your joy and happiness? Need to climb up on your soapbox and give somebody a little what fer? Need to fling open the windows and scream out to the world? Got a funny story or a joke? Need a little advice or reassurance? This is the place to do it, my friends. Anything and everything is welcome here. Just drop it all in and let it go! The stage is now yours, grab that microphone and belt it out!
As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience... spew forth, my friends!
