While booking our hotel for the Portland weekend coming up, Jeremy was extremely patient with me. He knows how much of a planner I am, how far I think about things in advance, and how much it calms my nerves to “be in the know”. I can definitely be a free spirit, but not when it comes to finances, and not at the expense of my sanity.
I do most things in advance. I hate last minute things, unless it’s a girls night, or a surprise date night. I know what is happening almost every single weekend from now until the end of the year, and I like it that way. I like having it together in my head.
I suppose this makes me seem very “Type A” and uptight, but I know that’s not true. These are just qualities that make me good at my job, and good at knowing my limits, not boring and predictable.
Tomorrow is Brian’s last day. My friend, my support, my work sanity at times. He is going back to school, doing something he can be proud of, and he and his wife are having a baby. His new beginning is giving me another one of my own, and no matter how “together” I have it sometimes, this next step is giving me a run for my money. I am nervous to take over, nervous to spread my wings and throw caution to the wind. I’ve never been okay with jumping feet first into unknown waters, so this is going to be interesting.
It’s time to go home, do an art project, make cookies, and relax with Pandora. Thursdays are the best days.
