A BIG step

My lease is up in August and The Boy and I have been discussing the possibility of living together at that time. We are likely going to do it, but I have to admit, I'm scared. I would be moving into his place in New Jersey, but we would be consolidating our furniture and putting some things in storage. It is a huge step in our relationship and even though I am 100% sure about him (and he feels the same), there is just a lot of "unknown" associated with it. How will we adjust to being together 24/7? How will all of our stuff fit together? Will I get enough "me" time?

I'm scared, but also very excited. Aside from the practical things that thrill me (he has a washer/dryer, dishwasher, I would FINALLY have an entire room dedicated to being my home office, I would be able to buy a car, my rent would be half of what it is now, etc.), I look forward to building our own little family unit and a life together. I have wanted this for so long, and had a rough dating journey to get here and am beyond excited to finally be in love and have the security of knowing I've found my person and he found his.

Let's just hope I like being a Jersey Girl!

The Catch Up

I think I am FINALLY on the mend from my whole staph debacle. The Boy still has a spot, but seems to be healing. I have a suspicious spot on my leg that I am keeping an eye on, but so far it doesn't seem to be taking the course the others did. Fingers crossed we can put this behind us and be collectively healthy for awhile!

Things with the Boy are still amazing...marriage has been discussed...rings have been looked at, but nothing definite as of yet. I think back to a year ago and wonder every day how on earth I got to this place. I wish I had kept my faith better through it all.

I got the invites for my sister's bridal shower in the mail today and they look amazing! Seriously if you need invites for anything, check out  I can't wait to have a reason to need invites for something again! LOL

I started a Couch to 5K program last week. I finished week 1 and will be starting on week 2 tonight. I'm doing it on the Wii, which I am sure lessens the impact of it slightly, but I am happy to get off the couch and at least working out again. So far so good! Let the pounds start melting off!

Whew, I think you guys are all caught up now. I'll try to be a better blogger!

The Good News and the Bad

I'm back from my follow-up dr appt. Apparently they were only testing me again because the lab screwed up (which is NOT what the woman told me on the phone!). It wasn't that I had abnormal results, I had NO results. I'm annoyed they made me worry, but at least it's over and hopefully they do it right this time.

The downside is, she found ANOTHER red spot on the back of my leg (its high up and I couldn't see it myself) that worries her, so I'm back on the antibiotics for the THIRD time now. I still can't figure out where this stupid infection is coming from. I'm afraid it is coming from the seems to happen whenever I hang at his place. I have my physical next month...hopefully they can figure out what is causing it if anything.

3 Words

The Boy told me he loved me last night.

Despite the rough weeks I've had recently, I could NOT be happier right now.

*and yes, I said it back

I have a suspicious red spot on my leg....its not looking good. I put every single antibiotic cream, spray, salve and cleaner I had on it, bandaged it and am keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm worried it's going to turn into something ugly.

With all my health issues lately I thought it prudent to get a physical (its been um...a decade I think since I had one), but of course the next available appointment isn't until the end of May. Plenty of time for my doctor phobia to kick into overdrive and drive me INSANE with worry. Terrific.

Sorry about all the whining here lately....maybe someday my blog will stop sounding like the dining hall of a nursing home where everyone discusses their various ailments.
