Couch in the future?

We here at Observations are hopefully getting a couch sometime this week. YEAH!

We used to have a nice purple couch, but when we moved from the nice furnished apartment we had no furniture. At least not any that we could sit on. The funny thing about us moving is the fact that the apartment we left and the arpartment we are in now have the same layout. So when we first moved it felt like some one had stolen our couch, because everything else was in the same exact place.

So this whole time we have had no couch. Why didn't we just buy one, you may ask? Beside not having a lot of money, we only planned on staying in this apartment for seven months, then moving to a much nicer and bigger place. That plan won't be going into effect, as we 1) don't have the money; 2) can't find a place that fits enough of our criteria, and 3) it's a huge pain in the ass to move. Another big reason is that we both have about a year left at school. And if we stay for another seven month term, we will know if we should be graduating on time or not. This is important because we don't plan on staying in Dallas. We plan on moving to Austin if we can't move to the West Coast.

But now that we're staying we need a couch. Mostly for me, and my craptastic back. And my habit of going into the bedroom to sleep/read. It'll also make having people over better, no one will have to sit on the floor unless they want to. We're gonna get a futon so, if need be, people can stay over. Yay!

Without the Right Side

This past week The Right Side has been out of town. Gil had to go be with his family during our one week off from school, leaving my all by my lonesome. And I have to say, it wasn't bad.

That's not to say I didn't miss him, because I did. It wasn't like the times I had to go stay at my "real" apartment because the parents where coming to visit and they don't know about my living with Gil (I think they do, but they're gonna let me bust my ass pretending I'm not). Most of the times I have to leave him for a few days  it sucks. Part of it is, I believe, is that we are so close but still apart. The apartment we share is in Dallas, my other apartment is in Grand Prairie. Close, but so far away. It's a really easy drive to make, and that makes it harder.

The other thing that makes it more difficult to be apart during those times is that that place is no longer "home" to me. Gil is now my home, being with him is being at home. Wow that was weird, he just called me as I finished that sentence. Where was I? Oh, yeah. Right now I'm in a place that is connected to Gil, his stuff is here, the bed we share is here. I still feel connected to him, even though he is not here.

So this time apart hasn't effected me as it has him (He's rather homesick), but it has made me realize how much I love him and what he has come to mean to me. And while to hasn't been bad, I can't wait till he get back tonight.

P.S-Happy Birthday honey! I love you.
