I am here. you?
Do I have to partake in the nachos bell grande on my own or will you join me here?
I will join you
excellent. I started already is that okay?
Although for all of my talk about eating, I weigh 105
Don't hate me cuz I'm beautiful :)
so talk to me slim!
Anyway, I was really writing because I am feeling better.
nice. I want to hear
I came home from work after talking to you and my husband seemed so sad
We had a long talk.
And I think you are right - a lot of my feelings of a better life are just because I get caught up in the Groundhog day-to-day living.
yes and that is so normal and can happen to all of us
A different life basically just means different bullshit.
long term relationships can fell ho hum sometimes and we need to do things to make it fun and lively
Yes, so I am planning some fun things. Date nights and such.
Keeping it spicy. You can call me Tabasco.
that is what I want to hear. was he happy to talk with you?
I like slim
Yes, we had a good talk.
lol. cut it out!
He is a loner by nature, but I think he really does love me.
Did you fee more connected?
he does love you
I do. Sometimes I need to hear it from him. To know that he'd be lonely without me.
and did you ask him for what you need? we need to that in relationships...people arent mind readers.
Yes. And he even did something I had asked for a long time ago.
I totally forgot.
I have always hated our backyard.
Well, part of it. We have a huge deck, which is great. Then we have a side yard that is shady and weedy.
He finally got the whole thing landscaped.
nice and so he does respond to you. use that as an example of putting your needs and desires out there.
'Honey I need to hear you tell me how you love me'
build a forte in the bedroom like when you were kids and make smores and eat them in the forte
OMG, I am so sorry my computer is such a piece of shit.
what r u sorry about?
I am getting a new one this weekend.
It keeps freezing up.
ok i am here no worries
S'mores idea is cute.
I think if you and I hung out, we'd be huge.
that is the type of creativity that is needed after many years...silly things that connect us back to feeling younger and free
I just laughed so loud did you hear me all the way there in central time zone?
Professional distance may be good in that case...
I can't believe you are an East Coaster...
forgive me please!
now back to smores
Your personality seems way more Midwestern.
Yes, back to s'mores. Any other ideas?
you are very correct on that one
all things that remind us of feeling free and younger
Picnic cute, too.
but you are miss creative so why am I the only one coming up with ideas?
G-d, can you and I stop eating???
That's why I pay you the big bucks :).
no I am starving by the way!
Yes okay back to the big bucks...let me come up with some more BIG ideas then.
You should be...it's late over there!
I am planning a trip. That's a biggie.
the next rain storm...put on a slicker or whatever they are called and walk together through the rain holding hands.....I love that one!
It rains every weekend here...should be easy enough!
that is truly a lovely one..big buks style
i know..how absolutely ridiculous!
You are funny.
im so old fashioned.
It is sweet. Refreshing. Otherwise, you'd tell me to get on my iPhone and text him on his.
ewww not even a little...how unromantic...unless of course you text him and say honey, grab your slicker its pouring outside and weze going for a walk together.
And although I have a ton of friends, it is so easy to talk to you!
Is it weird to chat without knowing me?
that is how it should be.
no because I have developed a sens of you over time and that has allowed me to converse with you in the way that we do and i know it is helpful for you.
Ok, u gotta say raincoat.
Now I know you are not from the east coast!
I am form wherever you need me to be from.
ugh my typing
I can't have you be from anywhere.
ok just an east coaster then with mid western values as that is true!
ok enough of me here...more about smores and walking in slickers in the rain
Ok...we got s'mores. We got slickers.
ok what else...its not just enough to think them up you have to have the desire to do them and actually do it
We have picnics. I can dust off my UNO cards.
and rummy cube?
is that what it is even called?
Yes, but you spelled it incorrectly. Sorry, it's the writer in me.
how is it spelled?
ahh yes now i remember
so tell me what you have planned?
Good game, though!
Ok, we have a Derby party this weekend, so that should be fun.
put on your slicker, make a cup of hot chocolate and play Rummikub on the big deck
Date night is next week...maybe I can plan the s'mores for when we come home?
yes that will me fun
yes and what will you do for date night?
but dont tell him...set up the forte beforehand
Chuck E. Cheese?
sounds very romatic
omg i cant type today
this old typewrite keeps getting stuck and my arm gets tied pushing that thing all the way back to the left side. :-)
Nothing says 'I love you' like a game of skee-ball
actually an arcade could be cute
how bout skeet shooting?
I We could go bowling
the point is the two of you just need to get out together and reconnect plain and simple whether its in slickers, bowling, skee ball
Ok...I hear ya.
same wave length. now you are getting it
A little slow :).
no right on schedule...we needed to work on the feelings first before you put stuff into action.
I will report back to you. Have a good weekend - enjoy your slickers, too!
you too. ENJOY. always a pleasure. :-)
Didn't even have to ask!
I am very with it!
Talk soon. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
