“she’s got everything delightful, she’s got everything i need”

February 16, 2010

I find it almost surreal how brilliant everything is.

I feel like my relationship, which has been always fantastic (not that it hasn’t had downs, but they seem…not mucky), is turning into magic in front of me. There are concrete, notable changes, but i don’t feel like that covers it. So, magic.

I am giddy – Jamie is getting a new job soon. A day job! Also, an amazing and cool job that i think is perfect for her, relevant and such. Also, did i mention: a day job! We will get to sleep in the same bed (at the same time, more notably) every night (at night). We will have weekends and evenings and dinnertime and, and, and! In some ways it will be a challenge – we have never spent more than 48 hours together, so, really, we don’t have boundaries with each other. It seems a funny thing to have to figure out 2 years on, but i think knowing that going in will ease the process. Also, the dogs will be left alone in the daytime now, which will take some thought. But! I don’t care; i get to keep her. And i think eight hours of sleep – and on a schedule – will be remarkably good for her health (sometimes i worry).

Jamie went out of town two weeks ago, and returned twice as awesome (and with the above job offer). She is visibly, notably more comfortable in her skin. We have been discussing her gender. Of course, you know that discussing gender is one of my favorite hobbies, but that is hardly the point here. This is not something we have discussed before (i mean, it comes up, but not directly). I feel like everything is opened up. Some kind of a catalyst – everything has changed for the better. [Not that there are not, perhaps, complications, but they are external; i am not worried.]

We are getting married. I think that is more effect than cause, but it does make me feel like sunshine and roses. Also, it starts to feel real when you sit down to decide who should officiate, and that she said she will dance with me to Tracy Chapman.

p.s. no need to worry, all hyperbole in this post is going to a good cause.

    Catalysts for good are always welcome. Sounds like things are going swimmingly, which is wonderful to hear. I’m glad you’re enjoying the moment.

    “I am giddy” – that’s the best feeling EVER! Enjoy this wonderful time in your life.

    Alphafemme took the words right out of my mouth! The cuteness quotient of this blog just skyrocketed ;)

    So happy for you and Jamie. Follow your bliss.
