May. It's finally here.
I feel like I've lived all of 2009 so far just for this one little month. Seriously. I have zero expectations or thoughts on how the rest of the year is going to go past May. Sure some things will happen. They always do. And I'll even look forward to some of them.
But May is what I've thought about almost constantly since this blasted year started. Or, really, since August. For many reasons. But for two in particular.
One. My sister's getting married. I know she and my mom are looking forward to the culmination of all their planning over these last many months. I'm not so much looking forward to it being over as I am to see my sister have her day. She's going to be positively radiant, and I cannot wait to see her as she joins her life to my future brother-in-law.
Two. Moving in with DBF. All we do is talk about it. Our plans for the house. What we have left to do before we close. What bills we need to turn off or transfer before we move. What needs to get packed and what needs to get donated or thrown out. But it's not just the house itself. We constantly talk about how much longer until we're living together. How things will change. How we won't have to pack a bag for the weekend. Or how on the way home from Fort Worth, we'll take a different route and won't have to drop the other off at their respective place.
This month is going to be both very long. And very short.
