I'm glad that you guys had a chance to spend some time together. =)
Thank you. It was far too short of a time though.
Aw. Well, maybe you can plan a longer visit for the next time.
Heh, cute icon.
I hope you two had a great time together.
Thanks, the icon is a pic of H's and my pirate characters in the on-line pirate game we play.
It was a great, but all too short, of a time.
Sounds like you two need to figure out a way to spend more time together. Glad you had a great time though.
Between travel expenses, the sheer amount of time it takes driving,and the physical toll the long drive can take too, it just isn't feasible to do weekend trips to see each other as often as we'd like. :/
Believe me, I do understand, but if you and H really enjoy each other's company this much (you guys are in love, right?) then you should both probably look for ways to live (closer) together. Life is short my friend, gotta live it now.
I know you understand.
It's just not practical for either one of us to move. H has too good of a job to up and leave (one of us should be financially solvent at least), and I've got family obligations keeping me here at the present time.
I understand. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that you'll reach a point where you'll both feel that you just NEED to be together more and you'll find a way, no doubt about it.
Yeah, the day will come when my obligations to this place will cease. I'll be selling both houses (and hopefully that'll cover both Mom's and my debt) and getting out of here as fast as I can legally shed my ties to this place.
It's not a good time to sell right now though, but hopefully in a couple of years prices will go up again a bit...
I'm aware of that.
At one time when I hated this place less, I had dreams of renting the houses when I eventually came to own them, now ... I just have dreams of getting out of here (even that I doubt will ever happen on my very bad days).
Anyway, most likely, it will be years before I'll be able to do anything. Right now, I'm just stuck with the the consequences of decisions that I protested against when they were made so long ago. :/
I'm sure there are ways to get out from under those consequences. Perhaps look up free legal advice and ask questions on what options are open to you. Can't hurt, right?
We're already doing what we can with what we can.
H and I are stuck in two separate cities for the present time. I'm stuck here. And H would be taking a major pay cut if she transferred closer to me. I'm already in financial troubles, I don't want to drag her down with me.
Eventually, H and I will be together, but it isn't as simple as when we're ready we'll find a way.
I just hope things will work out for the both of you.
In my more optimistic moments, I have no doubts they eventually will.
I'm just tired and cranky right now. I prob. should have gotten some sleep tonight. 4:45 am here right now.
Ah, far from the first time I've skipped a night of sleep. It does mess with ones emotions. Sorry if I came off a bit short with you.
No worries my friend. I know how frustrating these things can be.
Get you some sleep, it'll do you good. :)
