Back!

So I'm back from my week in Everett, all safe and sound. Eric and I managed to not kill each other while together for an entire week, which I find impressive. It means that when I crash at his place until I save up enough for my own place, we'll not be on each other's nerves for at least a little while. :)

When he drove me back, he came to my cousins' for my mini-birthday-thingy. Two birds, one stone - this way we get the birthday thing with the cousins out of the way, and Ma gets to spend more than five seconds with Eric. Overall, it went well. Eric and my cousin Tom hit it off pretty well - Maureen (Tom's wife) wasn't quite as nosy as usual (well, then), and Mackenzie (their daughter) was absolutely abominably cute. She's 15 months old, with big honkin' dimples and the sweetest smile. Afterwards, Ma offered to take us out to dinner (!!! This, in Ma language, means she likes Eric), and finally Eric headed back to Everett. Sigh.

Well, then I found out what Maureen and Tom had actually thought, and was reminded how I don't especially like Maureen. (Ma went back to their place to pick up some stuff we'd left there, and met us at the restaurant.) Apparently, Maureen's first words were something along the lines of "I can't believe you allowed her to meet this guy from the internet! I'd never let Mackenzie do something like that." It went from there. "If they end up getting married, I want them to be dating for at least a year." Excuse me? YOU want? Do we get a say? *sigh* This is what she's like, by and large. She flipped out about me moving to Washington (the fact that I want to establish residency to make going to UW for the MILS program cheaper is, apparently, an afterthought - I'm really just moving there for Eric), and made it very clear that she thought it was entirely her business about what I was going to do. This is why we only see each other every three months or so.

On the upside, Ma likes him. Really, that's the important thing. And I like him, which is even more important. :) It's been a wonderful week, but it is nice to get home and be back with my own kitties again. And really, there's nothing quite like sleeping in your own bed.

Does that mean there would be four cat's in that space? That would be rather crowded, nobody could dare take a step.

Milky and Baron would be in Oregon with setauuta's mother.

And nobody dares take a step as it is!

Ye gods, no. For one, my cats and his cats would NOT get along, I don't think. Basically, my cats are big furry wusses, and Ramses would kick their butts within moments. For two, Mom would kick MY butt for taking them away. They've got it pretty good at her house, and there they'll most likely stay.

hmmm.
Y'know, if you have your cousin's email address I can start taking revenge for you...so many spam lists, porn groups, personal ads....
Forget her. He's a good guy (and you know how few guys I say that about - at the moment 5) and all of your reasoning has been sound - if it wasn't you would have heard me screaming wherever you were in the country. My seal of approval destroys her nosey, bitchy, and unreasonable disapproval and I declare her wench of the seventh order fit only for remedial pig latin.
The only approval you need is yours and his, with your mother's as a nice confirmation and lack contention.
On a side note, when can you start corrupting the daughter?

As long as you realize that I am THE Evil Guy then that is fine.

Blech. I knew lazyserf from Sept to Dec when he asked me to marry him. It was another two years, but that was due to getting the divorce from the first husband.

Time isn't the greatest test of love. Love is. I'm sorry to hear about the cousin (in law?)'s reaction, but remember: it's what you feel.

Of course, you knew that. But since you matter to gamethyme, and I like you, you matter to me as well. So I give sometimes really obvious answers. And sometimes just say strange things. In theory, you'll get used to me. Or so my lovely brother-of-my-heart seems to think about himself. He got used to me. LOL.

The main issue is that you like him. No one else's opinion matters. It is nice to know that others you care about like him also. And tell Maureen to work on her own life and when she is God you might listen to her opinion.

Maureen gets 50 lashes with a wet noodle. If she gets any bitchier, we'll have to upgrade her to a wet armadillo. (Mmm, leprosy...)
