The Next Step

Hello love,

1000 apologies, I’ve been somewhat slacking in the “writing” part of my life. With running, pole dancing and work and sleep I’ve found very little time to actually think about what I’d like to write about. My running is going well – I did my longest distance so far, 14km yesterday! I did it in 1.5 hours, and I think I could do better except I think I’m doing a really bad job at stretching my body, and as a result my ankles have been killing me. I’m going to get a massage today so he can work on my hamstrings and my calves. I hate being tight, it reeeeally sucks. Other than that things have been good! I’ve somewhat ventured off of my training plan a bit, just by moving runs around, but this week I’m mostly back to normal with the exception of my long run which I do on Saturday this week instead of Sunday.

Why you ask? Well, it’s St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday and you bet your ass that I’m not getting out of bed early on Sunday morning to go run 15 km! I’m hoping this ankle pain goes away… it’s super annoying. I haven’t been to pole dancing in a couple of weeks… but I’m back this week! I’ve been completely tired and run down for the past few weeks and just needed to slow down a bit. So I feel better this week (minus my ankles) and am getting back to the pole on Thursday!

A really good friend of mine just got engaged yesterday. The story is so cute. They’ve been dating for about 8 years now, since high school. Her boyfriend took her for a walk along the beach, and had one of his friends playing the song “I Want To Grow Old With You” on the guitar along the dock, and they walked up to him, and he had arranged “Will You Marry Me?” in the sand with rocks, and then proposed! He cried more than she did - what a cute story! It’s so great that they are taking that next step in their relationship.

My best friend is thinking about moving in with her current boyfriend, so they’re taking the next step in their relationship, and a girl I work with is moving in with her boyfriend who has showed her the ring he’s saving to buy for her – another step in the right direction. I feel like my relationship has come to a halt, sort of. We moved so quickly to get to where we are now, that I'm now very anxious to keep the trend going!

The next step for us would be an engagement, but for some reason C has this list of things that we need to do before he can pop the questions. 1. Have a vacation in California. We’ve decided that this year we’re going south to Mexico, so it would be at least another year after that (we won’t be going till near the end of the year) until this part of the list is done. Not only that, last time he went to California was with his ex, and the whole trip cost them a ton of money, A ton of money that I do not have… so we’ll see. I might have to somehow vito this off of the list. Honeymoon in California maybe? :) 2. He wants to buy a new place.

This, believe it or not, is more realistic than taking a vacation to California. The place we’re in now is a dump (sort of, it looks really nice, but there are a ton of smaller things that really make us want to leave), and we’ve been looking at places online. The only reason we aren’t moving out of this building is money. We need to save. I need to save for my part of the down payment, and he needs to save for the additional fees that go along with moving.

So needless to say, I don’t think I’m going to be getting engaged any time soon unfortunately. My friends all say that I’ll be the first to get married – but at this pace, I will definitely be the last. I’ve been having some extreme wedding fever lately – can you tell?

Stay sweet.
