See, what I was writing 3 years ago, in January 2008, right after coming back from Minneapolis and my first real winter experience. It was also the time Will proposed (for the first time) and I went back to Athens to announce to all my friends that it’s something they ACTUALLY do, it’s not just in the movies.LOL.
Take a look:
In case you are wondering what I’ve been doing with myself these days, here is an update:
Let’s start with the trip back to the US and the two weeks we spent in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
1. Mr. Right proposed and I said yes. Rumor has it I said “yes, please” but we are not sure.
He had planned it beautifully, made me think we were going for a walk around the farm and then we found a box of Cracker Jacks (see Breakfast at Tiffany’s) in his childhood hiding place and then we found a purple ring in the box and then he was on his knees. I can’t stop smiling since then.
I’m giggling. I’m happy. I spend 20 minutes every morning saying goodbye to him. I spend another 20 minutes in the metro daydreaming about him. I read the rest of the ride. I read books about death and the meaning of life.
I keep thinking that if this was the last day of my life I wouldn’t go to the office. I used to love my job. When I first started I loved it so much that I would work even if it was the last day of my life.
Now it feels like a waste of time. And yes, it felt like this even when I was still smoking. Oh, I didn’t tell you about this. I’M NOT A SMOKER ANY MORE. And life can be difficult for people who try to quit smoking in Athens. But I have all the support I need. Didn’t I tell you that Mr. Right is the best thing that happened to me the last 28 years?
Tuesdays with Morrie– read it.
