After our first couple weeks of actually living together, that quote perfectly sums up how I've been thinking lately of the years of long distance and deployments that led to this. I know everyone is probably tired of hearing about it, but I still can't really wrap my mind around the fact that he isn't going anywhere this time. There is so much to be grateful for this season, and getting to be a "normal married couple" for the first time easily tops my list. So what if we're playing the newlywed game a couple of years late? It was totally worth the wait.
It's very late. I should be packing for the upcoming trip to Dallas. Or sleeping. Or organizing that pile of stuff in the corner that made it out of a box a couple weeks ago, but (still) hasn't been organized properly. It mocks me every time I walk by it.
Instead, I'm watching television and doing nothing productive at all. But it's REAL CABLE! A newly recorded episode of How I Met Your Mother , and episodes of Hostages and The Blacklist are currently recording while I watch it. All. At. The. Same. Time! I feel so fancy.
Cable and DVRs are old news, but I canceled cable service a couple years ago in a fit of rage after a traumatic experience in NYC with a certain major cable provider. I refused to give them another try in Raleigh, but we're giving Verizon Fios a go here in Silver Spring! I actually didn't mind not having cable (what with Netflix, Amazon Prime, & Apple TV around), and I'm not totally convinced that the expense is worth it yet, but maybe Chloe and I just need another marathon of Property Brothers to help make that decision.
My best gal pal, Katy, came down from the Big Apple to play for the weekend, and we spent a big chunk of Saturday strolling around Georgetown with another friend. While we had a lot of fun fighting the crowds on M Street, my favorite part was when we walked through some of the quieter streets en route to the beautiful Georgetown University campus. I could wander there for hours! I haven't spent much time in Georgetown, but now I'm going to dig through the couch cushions until I magically find an extra couple million dollars lying around. I'm moving in!
