what the man said


i’ve started a blog entry several times but have given up because it sounded lame. my life is boring.

rob sent me his college essay yesterday and it is quite simply some of the best writing i have ever read. i realize that i may be biased. but honestly, it’s amazing. he wrote it in iraq and it’s a very honest, intense account of how he feels about war, god, etc. helped me understand him a bit more i think, at least in terms of the army (since if i don’t understand him now after 5 years we’re probably screwed lol). i’m so proud of him for writing it and for being such a great person. i love you darling.

anyway school is almost finished. i have one more paper to do for my philosophy class, which i began today but will finish tomorrow (it’s due on tuesday). the last two days i have spent doing absolutely nothing. i bought “harry potter and the order of the phoenix” on dvd, which was okay, not great because they hardly followed the book at all. but it was decent. i think with books like harry potter you just have to go all out and do the 3 hour movie instead of trying to cram it all into 2 hours.

on wednesday i fly to syracuse, very excited about that. then only a couple days later my darling boy is flying in to begin our 35-day leave together. šŸ™‚ we are going to florida to spend new year’s with his mother and we’ll come back to beloit on the 13th or so, so i can begin my final semester. 35 days seems way too good to be true…it’ll be by far the longest consecutive period we will have ever spent together in the past 5 years of our relationship.

it’s hard to believe that a year ago today i was waiting for him to call, trying to finish my finals but unable to focus because he hadn’t called in weeks. and trying to forget that he wasn’t going to be with me for christmas or our 4-year anniversary. this year i get him for both, and i couldn’t be happier. šŸ™‚
