....I have always prided myself on being an independent woman...okay, so that may be a little far stretched. I grew up in a SUPER close family. Weirdly close. I am the oldest of five children...four girls and one boy. There is 15 years between myself and the youngest. In a way, I think I did not go away for college because I could not bear to be away from my family. I did not really move out of my parents house until I was 25 years old...and it wasn't around the corner or anything...I picked up and moved to Central Florida. I transferred from my job with the Disney Stores to a job with Walt Disney World. We are talking over a thousand miles from my comfort zone. I barely had a job...got there to find out "full time" was only 32 hours!!! I knew nobody. I found a roommate via the Disney employee newsletter...I suddenly became quite independent!!!
That is, until I met Mike.
Not that I am clingy or needy, but it has been nice to have him around. He is all that I have known for almost ten years!!! Very rarely have we spent a night apart!!! I never thought that I would need someone so much!!! It is a nice feeling...I am still very independent in many ways...I can be stubborn to a fault...but it is nice to have such a love for someone. I really miss when he is not around.
Now, my only problem with his new schedule is taking care of my little Night Owl...I am wiped out and it is 9:15...but he is nowhere near being ready for bed...routine, routine, routine...THAT is something we are working hard on!!!
