Ahhh, Life

So yeah....I picked up D on Sunday afternoon after both of us missing each other terribly. We ran some errands: picked up paint and necessities for the bedroom, groceries and then because neither of us felt like cooking we picked up some dinner. It was a great evening together just doing the normal "routine" and things that needed to be done. We ate dinner, cut the grass, cleaned the kitchen, did some laundry and finished preparing the bedroom walls to be painted.

Yesterday while he was working, I worked as well. Got several appointments booked, had a conference call, all good things. After I had fixed dinner and cleaned up, it was time to paint the walls. Now believe me I loved the color as we were picking it out and everything, but as it started to dry on the wall it seemed a LOT darker. Well as it became drier and on all four walls, I liked it more and more. This morning, I looked in the room as I headed to the bathroom to shower....it was BEAUTIFUL!!! I LOVE the color of the room!!! It's magnificent!! Since the blinds are still down, the sunlight was just pouring in and lit up the room. I can't wait until that's OUR bedroom!

Today is spent working and tutoring (I'm in between appointments) and then watching his nephew and cleaning up as his family will be at the house Thursday night.

Have a great one!! I'll catch ya on the flip side!

P.S. I checked my appointment book that was left open last night and when I looked at today to double check who I had coming over it said, "I love you Katy - D" How sweet is that?!

I miss him....

Tonight D took off work early do go on a post-grad retreat with church that he had signed up for before we started our relationship. I honestly had considered going myself, but never actually did anything other than think about it for about 2 seconds. Well, I knew we were going to be pressed for time so I got to the house before he got off work. Little did he know I was going to be there starting dinner so he could finish up the things he needed to do before leaving for the weekend.

So cute....when he opened the door he says, "honey I'm home...I just wanted to see what that felt like to say."

Anyway, I dropped him off at church before they left for the retreat that was more difficult than I had anticipated....for the both of us. Once he got his things into the car he'd be riding in, he came back to give me a hug, several kisses and to tell me he loves me.

I didn't shed any tears (rare for me) but I came close.

Tomorrow I have a facial and then I'm headed up to G-town. I'll prolly go out with D's sister and hang out or something. If I go up there, I'll just stay at the house....it'll be kind of lonely, but I'll manage.

See yall later!!

Gifts from the heart.

The other night I got to the house and dinner was ready. MMM...Chicken Parmesean. D walked into the laundry room. I'm thinking he is going and switching loads that we had put in the night before. He comes out with these:
I'd NEVER gotten flowers in my life (from a guy) before. He did it 'just becuase.' I hadn't mentioned anything about it before.

Last night while we were sanding and preparing the bedroom walls to be painted, he was out in the kitchen looking for something. I was SO confused as to what it was. I tried asking him, in case it was something that I had moved, and he wouldn't say so I dropped it and went back to work. He comes into the bedroom and hands me this:
This was a big deal. He'd told me before that he'd never give anyone a key to the house until he married her. (with good reason I don't blame him at all)

We both keep little tricks up our sleeves which I love. Yesterday morning I snuck a love note and some of his favorite candy in his lunch box while he was in the shower. This morning he comes in to the room where I'm sleeping as he's ready to leave for work to kiss me goodbye. It's the little things that matter.....one of my key phrases. However, not only the little things, but the big things we have in common too! It's just right!!!

Busy being in love.

If you've not been able to catch up with me...well, there's good reason. I'm in love. The best man in the world and I are totally, wonderfully in love. It's just wonderful!!! I've NEVER been in as much love as I am right now....and it grows; everyday.

This weekend we'll be apart. I'm not thrilled about it, and neither is he. However, it'll be good for both of us. We both need it for various reasons.

Do you know how good a redhead looks in a black mustang??? hehehe.....ask D. He'll tell you. Apparently at work the guys talk about dating redheads vs. blondes and brunettes. I guess his foreman is married to a redhead. Well D's comment to him the other day was, "well, I got myself a redhead. They say blondes have more fun, but redheads...HO-LY COW!" His foreman replies with, "yeah, I know. Hang on for the ride."

We've been busy though planting flowers and getting walls in the house ready to paint and all that other house kind of stuff. I really enjoy it....so does he. YAY!

Well, I'm off to do some more work. I'll check in when I can!

Hoppy Easter!!!!

What a great weekend!!!! I spent the weekend at D's house in Georgetown. It was spent being together and with his family. Funny thing was his nephew, who will be 3 in June, came over at one point in time. They were asking where him where everyone in the family lived and they asked him where I lived. He answered, "D's house." Well, while the answer is no....not yet, that will be changing sometime this year.

He and I had a great Easter together. Friday we spent a good part of the day with his mom, dad, sister, nephew, brother and sister-in-law. Saturday was mostly the two of us. We ran errands, procrastinated finishing getting the bedroom ready to paint, went to church and then ate dinner with the family. Today we drove to Louisville to hear his sister-in-law sing at church. Then we all went over to her sister's house for Easter lunch. What a blast we all had!!

I'm so totally happy I can't stand it!

Love is in the air!!

I just LOVE spring time. There's nothing better than warmer weather to break out the flip flops and capris or the middle of the night storm when you are cuddling with the man you love.

That's right yall, along with the rabbits and birds and all the other animals out there, I'm in love. I'm TOTALLY happy!!! It's wonderful. No pictures or anything yet, but met and hung out with part of his family last night....met the parents the night before. Wonderful people!!

I'll update more, as I have time, and as I'm in my apartment as opposed to the house in Georgetown.

Blast from the Past

Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day at my dad's house going through things that are mine both in his basement and what used to be my room. WOW....I never knew that in 23 years someone could accumulate so much random crap....not to mention breaking the chunk of it down to just the past 5 years when I was in college. I found some great memmories....as well as some not so great memories

I found:
  • old tapes - New Kids On the Block, MC Hammer, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Rainbow Brite Christmas
  • My gameboy....and the games
  • various items from various trips
  • clothes I had forgotten about
  • notes....handwritten, snail mailed notes
  • old emails

Now it's the notes and emails that really get me. Back in September of 02 I was talking to this wonderful guy, Neil Soto. Right as Neil and I were starting to have feeligns for each other, Alex walked into my life. Due to the immense feelings that I had for Alex, I abruptly ended things with Neil. DUMB KATY! Why is that so dumb?? Well, I found the letters that Neil had written me. He's an artist so there were drawings in there with them. I found the pictures he had sent me. As well as the poetry he had written for me. Here's one of the poems:


There is no place

Deep inside my heart

No one knows but me

So full of light

It burns with love

There an angel waits

Her wings are soft

And white as snow

They hold me in their warmth

Her gentle arms

Brush tears away

As I look up

Deep in her eyes

I know

We have met someplace before

In a dream

Or in heaven

For I know

We have found each other

And true love once again

He then added this note at the end: For you Katy, may your heart shine bright as all the stars in the sky.

This got me curious....curious as to what he's up to, and what else I might find. Well, I found the proof that I had that Alex was cheating on me. I found the emails that I had printed off from his email account. Ironically, after his failed marriage, it has been brought to my attention that he is dating that same woman currently. *As a sidenote, he gave me the password for that long before I ever started checking anything....he started acting funny, so I persued my gut feeling and checked. I just didn't want to believe it.*

That was not the end of my curiosity though. I was still curious as to how Neil was and what he was doing. So I happened to have his email address still (I for some reason just couldn't delete it). Yep, I emailed him. I waited for the email to be sent back saying it was an old email and didn't work. It never got sent back....by yahoo. When I checked my email this morning, I had a reply. He was glad to hear from me, still has the letters and things that I sent him as well, and he is engaged now. I'm happy for him!!

My blast from the past was fun. I threw plenty of just garbage away, have several things to consign and even some things that are going to make their way to the apartment when I head back.

I'm headed to Cincinnati for the weekend later today. I don't think it could come at a better time. I need to go be at "home." I need to go to a place where I can think about other things while I'm driving and still get to where I'm headed without a hitch. I don't know what it is...I just need it.

As of right now there isn't too much scheudled. I don't know yet if I'm coming back Sunday or Monday. However I do know this: I'll work for Josette a little bit today, I'll prolly go out with Andrea and others tonight....if I don't head over to Rick's, I'm thinking tomorrow will be a good day to head over to my dad's and just go through a bunch of stuff that I have...some to pitch, some to sell and the rest...well, store at dad's some more! Sunday I'll prolly go to church and hear the contata. My not-so-little little cousin has a solo as he did in the Chirstmas contata...that and I've not been back but one time since I graduated. Not to mention the fact that there are some family issues that other people would like to talk about with me. Nothing major....on my part...thank God.

SO yeah, I'm retreating this weekend and it'll be a good thing. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that my mother will be headed to Chi-town so I won't get to see her this weekend.

Busy...a good busy

So I realized it's been a week since I've updated....craziness. I've been working and spending time with friends that I haven't had the chance to hang out with in a while. Saturday morning at 10am I get a phone call from my girl Lacey who was getting married the next day. She says (in a freaking out way), "Katy what time are you coming to Louisville tomorrow??? My make up artist and her son, who is the ring bearer, are puking their guts out. Will you PLEASE come do my make up??"
My answer without hesitation is of course. Hell, I set these guys up, I wouldn't miss the wedding, let alone not help her out! After the time change, I get up at 7 so I can leave by 8. Let me tell you how I'm at her hair salon by 945....now that's moving it. It was a great wedding. I have some pics!!

Before I get to the pics though, I must talk about Jason, the groom. He and I are relativly close. I don't know how many times he got emotional on me and thanked me for being there. At one point in time he asked me to dance while dancing he says to me, "Katja (what he calls me for some wierd reason that I don't remember) thank you so much for coming today. ( I reassure him that it didn't matter where the wedding was, I wouldn't have missed it) You've turned my life around by placing Lacey in it and I can't even imagine my life with her. Thank you so much." Being the girl I am, I tell him he'd better stop or I'm going to start crying....secretly knowing that he was about to as well.

Ok...here are some pics.
Lacey pulling me aside before the wedding to tell me the BIG secret...."I wish I would have placed money on that. I KNEW it!" was my reply when she tells me that they were already married!!!!

Nothing like a good fish face while they are taking pictures!!!

The Best Man speech: " Jason and Lacey congratulations. We are all so happy for you. And one more thing: My all your ups and downs and ins and outs only be between the sheets.

I have bunches of others, but this is enough for now!!
