I have good news and . . . more good news.
Good news #1
Guess who gave me notice?
I can hardly believe two of my wildest dreams came true on the same day. (I raised more money than I ever have in any fundraiser I’ve planned AND one of the banes of my existence decided to vacate.) I am, however, left wondering how in the hell I am going to rent her apartment when it is packed to the gills with stuff. No one is going to be able to see the potential of it looking like that- the door doesn’t even open all the way there is so much stuff in the hallway! So now I am stuck with two apartments that are in such a sad state that showing them would actually drive people away. But! She gave notice! Let’s focus on the good here.
Good news #2
I have the day off. And three more in the next two weeks. Because I worked an insane amount of hours and deserve them. Yes! I DESERVE THEM.
Good news #3
My boss actually complimented me. This hardly ever happens. Like never. Except yesterday. HALLELUJAH!
Good news #4
I get to see Mr. Darcy tonight! This might seem like run of the mill news to you but to us it is worthy of jumping up and down. I have not seen him since Sunday and have not had alone time with him since last Thursday. And even that was an hour before he raced to pick up his sister at the airport. I miss him. I predict we will be permanently physically attached to one another all weekend. (Portland friends, you are warned at forthcoming PDA.)
Good news #5
I met Mr. Darcy’s sister and suddenly so much made sense. When we first started dating he told me (paraphrasing), “I grew up with women like you- strong, independent, opinionated, over-thinkers- so I ‘get’ you.” I didn’t 100% believe him then but I do now. His sister and I are A LOT alike. So of course I thought she was fantastic and adorable. Ahem. But seriously, she was wonderful and apparently I was given the sister seal of approval. Phew!
Good news #6
I am treating myself to a massage today. And lots of time in my pjs on the couch catching up on TV.
Good news #7
Despite having two units open, I am throwing caution to the wind and heading to Portland with my love for a quick overnight getaway. Because I need to be somewhere where I am not required to do any work. Because I want alone time with my boyfriend. Because I miss my Portland friends. Because Portland is one of my favorite cities with some of the best food on the planet. Because! Because! Because!
