Just had to post... (which I am trying to do more often rather than being the shameless lurker that I am)

Just heard from my...errr...friend, technically the more-than-a-friend-less-than-a-boyfriend-wishing-to-be-much-more-than-a-boyfriend-but-scared-to-lose-the-friendship-plus-bad-timing-and-an-ocean-between-us-guy. (Noooooo, no long complicated history there!!! /sarcasm)

Anyway, he is out of Iraq, safe and sound and waiting to be reassigned to a new duty station.

Wooo hoooo!!!

And I am working on my first sweater pattern....
And my shawl is coming along beautifully...
And I just found $20 that I didn't know I had in the console of my car.

I just reread that and realized how hyper I sound. Its just a relief that he is safe. This was his 2nd tour in Iraq, all told 2 1/2 years. Just so thankful to get time to talk and touch base with each other.

The rest of the stuff was just a bonus.

:cheering: Glad he's okay! Maybe now he can become the "more" that you want. ;)

Oh I wish, but again timing is just not on our side. For some reason we always end up being in different places in our lives at different times.

We did talk today about making a commitment to each other to get it right this time. :heart: :heart: :heart: We are just not sure how to go about it. But one things for sure... what we have has carried us through the last 4 years. We can make it a little longer. :thumbsup:

Glad to hear he's safe....I love found money...I always intend to use it for yarn but there is no such thing as me spending only $20.00 at a yarn store...so usually I use it to buy myself lunch before I go to the yarn store!! LOL!!

Well... I'm obviously still thrilled and bouncing off the walls.


:) And I bought some 28,000 yeards of yarn on ebay. I can NOT buy any more.... but needles...they are calling my name...

:happydance: Wow, what a great day!

Just reading your first post made me grin. Yeah, you sounded hyper, but in a good way. I'm glad to hear your un-boyfriend made it home, and I hope you have fun shopping for needles.

Here's to more good days!
