Well it is here! Khalid and I are "really married" now....like we aren't just having vacation time together, we aren't counting the days til I leave, and (THANK YOU GOD) we aren't talking on the phone anymore! It has been nice to be here with him -- set up house (semi - cause we are moving in a couple of months), try to get excited about Christmas, and just to be held all the time. We had Christmas together once when we were dating, but I spent most of my time with the kids here, so I am excited to share this Christmas with him. We are getting a tree this week and are going to decorate with paper snowflakes -- because my decorations are in the car and not sure when it will finally arrive. So our forever is beginning!
A small damper in our joy of being together is that I am struggling so much with Nicoda's birthday coming up soon -- and it has made my anxiety skyrocket. I am functionable, but barely somedays. But Khalid has been trying to make me feel better and even if he doesn't realize it, I am better for just being here. Alas I am praying that we still have a good Christmas amidst my rollercoaster of emotions these days.
I'll post some pictures after we decorate....its funny -- I always take SOOO many pictures, but now that I am here, here I've barely taken one. Ha!
