Nine years ago today you bravely waited at the front of the church for me to walk down the aisle to you. In many ways, we barely knew each other. Yet, in other ways, because you were in Korea for most of our engagement problem, we knew each other well because we talked almost daily.
Corny as it sounds, I think our hearts recognized a like spirit from the day we met. It didn’t take long for the minds above to catch up and we knew there was no reason to waste time with something that seemed right and good.
We’ve definitely had our ups and downs. Thanks for sticking with it. You’ve shown that steadiness and loyalty that was one of the things I noticed at the start. And I like the laughter and fun that have always been there, even when things are tough.
Our life has changed over the years and I thank you for supporting my various endeavors. I would not be where I am today without your support and help. When I feel like the rest of the world is against me, you are always in my corner. Even when I’m off roaming the continent, I feel sure that you are thinking about me and caring about me.
I love you. I value you. And I look forward to whatever our future holds for us.
I’ve got that vacation-is-almost-over depression setting in. A bit worse than the usual Sunday depression since I’ve had a wonderful week at home with DH and the dogs (and other house guests as well.)
The next several days are going to be very busy. I still have to finish preparing for my presentation at the end of the week. And then I’ll be home with enough time to do some laundry and pack for the trip to Denver.
I’m looking forward to the workshop at the end of the week, although I’d gladly do without making a presentation. Fortunately it’s just a 1/2 hour workshop format, so not as painful. Reference Renaissance promises to be interesting and informative. I hope to bring back some good information to share with work colleagues.
Also on the to-do list for the week is planning the training session for the university’s ambassadors (the students who provide tours to prospective tours.) I hope to finish the planning for SWARM International and start rounding up volunteers.
What else? I’ve got a program proposal to write for an upcoming conference. There is a program that I’d like to see us try with incoming freshman and I need to get the proposal/plan written for that.
I’ve also got a few follow-up things to do for the Summer Institute before I can officially declare my job done with that.
Then there is the usual job stuff, like gift books, reference collection weeding, desk hours, etc. And I’m the person in charge of the department for the next few days since our head is still on vacation. Whee.
It’s likely I won’t get much sleep tonight (which is typical for Sundays) as my mind spins through all the things I need to do this week.
I do think I was pretty successful about shutting that stuff off in general this past week. For me, that’s a huge accomplishment. It bodes well for the upcoming meditation retreat.
Yes, this is my life.
DH and I celebrated our anniversary early (since I’ll be workshopping on the actual day.) We went to see the X-Files this afternoon and then had dinner at Famous Dave’s. DH gave me a pretty pair of earrings that I’d seen in a shop window a few weeks back. So far, I’ve not got his present. Although I did have an inspiration today. Fortunately I’ll be in the neighborhood later this week where I plan to get his gift.
And KS is hot. HOT! And humid. I’m all done with summer now. kthxbai
