I have been slacking on posting here on my Oregon blog…
I’ve actually not been posting very much on the internet at all lately. I’m working “a lot” at the coffee shop. I cover 2-3 shifts a week the last few weeks. Especially since we are short handed, but we just hired two new girls who seem nice. I wish we would hire a few males so there was a little less estrogen behind the bar. But, it is what it is. I’ve officially made a “best friend” out here which i’m extremely grateful for. Katie and I went out last night for celebratory tacos and drinks at a couple bars because she got promoted to shift lead at work yesterday. It’s nice to have someone I can just be myself around- myself on any level I please. Silly to spiritual, she just lets me be me. Which is how any friendship or relationship should be, in my opinion. Things shouldn’t feel weird or uneven or be overly hard. I get to go home in 11 days for the holidays and I can’t express to anyone how happy I am to know that in less than two weeks I will be in the company of all the ones I hold closest to my heart. I will be in their presence, soaking in their energy and squeezing them all so tight. I will also participate in lots of yummy food, coffee, snuggles and yoga! Overall things here in Salem are okay… but i’m not satisfied with a bland “okay” lifestyle.
Well it fucking snowed today!
I had to work at 5:30am and around 7 the snow started to fall and now it is noon and the streets are filled with snow. I had to drive home for the first time ever IN SNOW and I wanted to die! My car was sliding and I barely drove 10MPH and I was freaking the fuck out. I will now stay in my warm house until it is gone.
Yesterday at work an old man came in with plugs that were at least two inches and it was so bad ass and totally made me happy. You go, old man!
I can see the shimmering of colored lights peaking through the cracks in my blinds from the Christmas lights in my front yard. It’s below freezing and we are expecting snow tonight. There are moments through out my days when I go back to the moments we were together in your home, cooking dinner or drinking coffee on the patio. I think about what i’m missing this month- our first Christmas together, yet i’m not there to decorate our home or get caught up in the shopping havoc at the malls together. I know that i’ve made this big step in my life for so many reasons but these moments come and i’m missing your warmth, your smell, your kindness that shines through in all the wonderful things you do for me. I love you each day a little more. As we draw closer to a new year my only resolution is to get back into your arms to stay.
I had the best day today hanging out with my best friend after work. It was really nice to finally just have some good quality time with her, running errands and making crafty goodies together. I’m really happy about it.
Now i’m going to catch up on The Walking Dead and sleep.
I’ve been up since 4am.
