I'm not walking in this Winter Wonderland.

2 of our bikes, my van, the front road of our apartment complex, our balcony, and my hubby's finger. LOL

I need a Medic here! [/BF2]

So, I had a nice eventful day yesterday. Was getting up off of the couch and smacked right into the corner of our mantle and hit the softer spot of the top of my head. Kris came home and took me into urgent care; no real damage, just have to ice it and such to prevent swelling and watch out for any signs of concussion. I did open my head a little, but not bad enough for stitches I guess. I thought I would need them at first, but apparently head wounds bleed a lot regardless of the size.

I was supposed to go on a job interview yesterday in an actual business setting, so Tuesday night I went and bought a pants suit and this cute pair of wedge platform sandal/heel things in black. It's a weird stretch from business casual, really.

Today, maintenance is coming to remove the mantle; it's only some wooden shelf thing from Home Depot affixed to the wall. I'm not the first of us (Kris, Tia, and myself) to hit my head on it, but I'm the first to actually have a result of it. They're going to be fixing some other odd things around here too. We need 2 new screens on the back windows as there are small holes/bends in the screen and frame which allow wasps to fly in, and it gets pretty warm in here sometimes with the house sealed up. Kitchen lights need to be replaced and the last person who did it sealed them shut pretty good, which is why Kris is having them do it. Why risk falling off a ladder yourself when someone else can do it for you, right? ;)

Oh, and my arm doesn't feel too peachy because of a Tetnus shot they decided to give me as well yesterday.

You don't want to live this way
I see it in your eyes
I hurt you every day
I see it in your eyes
You just want to be loved
I feel it everytime
You don't know what to do
So you run away from me

What can we do to be together?
Is there any chance?
Do we have to die for love or do we love to die?
Will there be a better life in the land so far away?
Is there a place for you and me?
Will we feel our love again?

What can we do to be together?
Is there any chance?
Do we have to die for love or do we love to die?

Please don't ever leave me standing
I don't want to be alone
Don't run away from all your problems
I don't want to be alone
What shall I do, what shall I say?
I don't want to be with you
But I can't live without your love
I can't live without you

What can we do to be together?
Is there any chance?
Do we have to die for love or do we love to die?
Will there be a better life in the land so far away?
Is there a place for you and me?
Will we feel our love again?

What can we do to be together?
Is there any chance?
Do we have to die for love or do we love to die?

Finally.

Trying on my own to learn Greek, or what I can of it at least. I'm learning the alphabet and pronunciations before I try to learn any words. Only words I can put into Greek are Vaskania (Βασκανια) and my name, Melissa (Μελισα), both of which are Greek words to begin with so all I had to do was get the Greek lettering right. Starting to be able to memorize which letter is which without looking at a "cheat sheet". The one that messes me up though is r/rh because in Greek (Ρρ) it looks like an English "p".

Moo

Temp. Move

Kris and I went through some hardships. We had a heart to heart, and I also talked to a married friend of mine. Explained to them all of my fears and was able to actually work through a lot of them. My friend and I had a lot of common fears so she helped me through them and talked to me about dealing with them over time. Everything's fine and dandy now and a future with Kris makes me smile again.

Back at my mom's temporarily. The lease ran out on the apartment before we were ready to move to Seattle. Kris is staying with a friend in the mean time. I packed a bunch of stuff for him to take with him before I make my way up there, which made this sardine can of a room a little more livable since it freed up a lot of space in here.

Living separately really sucks now that we don't have the apartment. Privacy is, well, non existent. =| My mom seems to have a weird tantrum when he's here too late, but I've been with him for 4 years, and in my eyes is no different than when family/spouses stay here. Is it because we're not married? Because we have no blood-tied children together? Who knows. My mom's thinking would baffle even the most brilliant of scientists.

Don't mind this, just an accounting gripe.

Why can't the wording on financial statements remain the same among companies? I look for something and it's right infront of my face with a different title. Geezus.

(no subject)

So, I went and did the inevitible. The thing that I said I wasn't ready to do yet. I moved some things back into the apartment. I've been staying here since Wednesday night, 3 days before I took Kris and Tia to the airport. Moved some more things in today, and my god am I exhausted. Did I mention I also cleaned up the living room and threw out a ton of shit? I never realized we were such big packrats.

I miss my family horribly right now. Over Christmas when Kris went back to Seattle to visit I at least had Tia, but I allowed him to take her as well this time. I know how much fun vacationing with him is, and it hurts knowing that my own stupidity is the reason I'm not with him right now. Had I agreed to stay and work on things from the start I'd have been around when he bought his ticket and had already planned for time off.

I've made a ton of stupid mistakes over the last 6-7 months or so, but at the same time it feels like we never parted. When we hit 4 years this August, it will be exactly that.. a 4 year anniversary. Not 3 1/2, not 4 years give or take, but 4 years.. period. He's the only man to have kept me this long. Sure we've had our ups and our downs, but we've had a lot more ups than downs; and I'm done taking shit from people, he is who I love and that's all there is to it.

Since all of my classes this last term are all online, whether Tia and I go to Seattle before or after school's over is a question I'm still asking myself. Right now it comes down to a money issue. Yes, there are aspects of my job that I do like, but it's not in the field I want, and I will not give up Kris for a job.
