There’s good eating, and then there’s good eating!  Lately, we have been eating extremely well!  This is not good for our physical fitness and running, by the way.  I mean, we are supposed to be maintaining a certain level of fitness and eating and drinking whatever we want is not exactly compatible with that.  Even so, we are enjoying life immensely right now.

There’s supposed to be a big snow storm coming in, so we’re prepared.  We made sure we had groceries on hand and those groceries include orange juice and bubbly  I made Chile in the crock pot this evening to eat tomorrow (and the next couple of days, potentially) and Ceecee made pan seared tuna and scallops in butter and garlic for supper tonight.  Now we’re just crossing our fingers and waiting for the phone call to tell us that there’s no school tomorrow.

I have a very unmanly confession to make.  One of my top favorite movies of all time is Anne of Green Gables.  Yes, as in “based on the novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery,” and made for a TV miniseries.  And….I own the entire set on DVD and watch them regularly.

I realize that I am now in jeopardy of losing my man-license and I have just written this for the entire world to read.  Why am I doing this?  I’m not sure, other than this is me and I’m telling it like it is.  And Ceecee and I had an Anne of Green Gable movie marathon at the loft today which involved crying.

That’s another thing.  I’ve always been a sensitive guy and I’ve been known to get emotional at movies before this, but now, since my change of heart and the things we’ve been through…it’s water works all the time.  I don’t fight it, though.  I know I’ve been through a lot of healing and there’s a lot of release that just needs to happen, so I let it.

Snow Day!  That means no school and Ceecee and I are making the most of it!  We have to get up early on school days, so we were already up when they called it.  We made breakfast with Mimosas (one of our favorites), then went back to bed.  No plans.  Just going to enjoy it!

Somehow, Ceecee missed Taylor’s call yesterday.  It’s crazy.  She’s almost obsessed with not missing his call, so she keeps her phone pretty much glued to her, but somehow it happened.  He’s only allowed one phone call per week, so that was it.  He graduates from basic in 4 weeks and we’ll see him then.

First Friday Art Walk was a lot of fun last night.  The weather was great and we didn’t really have any plan.  We just walked around and took it all in.  There were some kid rockers playing “crazy train” in the downtown library.  None of them looked older than about 13, but they weren’t too bad.

Ceecee has still been swimming a lot and we’re working out pretty regularly again.  We don’t have anything specific that we’re training for, so our workouts lack direction somewhat right now.  I’ve been trying to gradually increase my running distance and testing out the knee.  So far, so good, but I haven’t pushed it, so I don’t really know.

First day back at school after Christmas break.  I had to go to a conference yesterday to listen to a guru tell us the latest philosophy of education, but today I’m back in the classroom for second semester.  I’m also still at Macy’s.  Break was more wonderful than I can really even begin to express on here.

I’ve always dreamed of love like this, but until now, I’ve never really experienced it.  I guess I always believed, deep down, that it was possible.  I just couldn’t seem to make it a reality and I’ve lived the past several years in suspension between what I wanted and what I thought I could actually experience.
