Happy hump dayen

I’m so excited. I have new boots waiting for me at home! WOOOO.

Then Bear slept last night!! I love when he gets sleep, even if it means that I don’t get much. I’d rather wake up at 8, no matter how hard it is for me. He was very patient this morning though. Went downstairs to watch music videos while I got ready. I was in the bathroom putting on make up when I hear “Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements? Even if it leads nowhere? Would it be a waste, even if I knew my place? should I leave it there?”

Not even a minute into the song I’m dancing in around the bathroom. I come downstairs and Bear plays it again as I put on my shoes. Then he dances me out of the house playing it one more time. I’m sharing it here. It was a great song to get us going this morning. The video for this song is so fun, but none of the ones on youtube allow for embedding, so live it is.

Familiar and comfortable

So my brother’s visiting. He’s also visiting his girlfriend, so he hasn’t been around constantly and we made plans with him and his gf and Bear and I to all go to lunch today at 1:30. This morning I woke up at 9am and found Bear playing WOW. Which meant he hadn’t gone to sleep. Which meant the chances of him going to lunch were miniscule. I got kinda pissed and ended up pissing him off a little. Then I coaxed him into bed and into sleep because I care more about him functioning than I do about him going out to lunch.

While I was getting him into bed, he kept saying that he was going to lunch and he wasn’t going to fall asleep. I kept saying “Ok.” because he needed to relax. He was way wound up. Finally at 10am, he fell asleep. He fell asleep swearing to me that he was going to lunch and that he wasn’t going to fall asleep. I had no faith in either of those things happening. Especially once he started snoring.

At 1pm, I was a little mopey but very sure of myself. I go to get dressed and he wakes up while I’m getting my clothes. At first he’s falling back asleep, but he ends up getting up. Showered and everything so that by the time my brother and his gf arrived we were at the door. It ended up being a nice lunch and now at 11:30, I’m laughing at the memory of snapping at him that if he wanted to get out of lunch he could have just said something instead of staying up all night.

I remember days when this would have been crushing. I would have been crying at Bear and been mopey at lunch. Bear would have fed off my attitude and been snappish. I know we only got married around 4 months ago, but I think there’s something to be said for having a relationship that’s 6 years old. I love how comfortable the relationship is now. How I know Bear well enough to know how certain things will go, but no matter how familiar he is, he still surprises me.
