I guess if anything, today represented a "Nicole getting her spunk back." WOW. I feel like one of those old dish rags that just needed a little sprucing up and wringing out. I am back!
The past (almost 3 weeks) has been interesting. Between traveling for work and dealing with the hubs MIA and then facing it alone, I think this weekend represents ME. Seriously - ME. BTW - nice to meet you, this is ME.
I have been just reveling in who I am and where I am going and what I have accomplished. I grew that backbone that the goofy/silly/love virus snatched away. I think I am finally on track and back in the land of the living. You know how that honeymoon phase sort of zaps your brain? Don't get me wrong, still in love - just not so sad and sappy and needy as I once was. Whoa - who WAS that girl? ;-)
Yes, I conquered my silly nerves and met with the new egyptian family and they were lovely. They have been in the states for 10 years and were delightful. A perfect blend of arabic tradition and an american sense of humor. Love it. (PS - new foods were AWESOME.)
Back to the backbone part - I have been making some changes around here. I accessed the situation - now the apartment is about to become not MINE and not HIS - but ours. I am making some minor adjustments that will showcase both of our tastes and wants and needs. Plus, I am organizing in a way that makes total sense for BOTH of us.
Now.. let's just hope he is still willing to get back in the game. ;-)
