Crush was crushed about Memphis, but he totally understood and supports me. He knows that I gave him a ton of my focus and time this past year (which led to a few of my firings....going out of town often was the direct culprit) and that I need to finish work here with an absolute bang! Then, all of a sudden, there was a very unexpected death in his family and he wouldn't have been able to go himself anyway. It was a sign. I just don't think Memphis is meant to be for us for now.....we have tried twice and haven't made it, so we decided that Savannah is the next city that we will visit together for a quick weekend trip. Bonus that it is driving distance from my new apartment.
Meant To Be: I will be in my new city in less than 30 days. My awesome parents are joining me on my drive cross country, as retirees they have the time and I am honored to have them for the first leg of my journey. Crush told me that he wants to speak to my Dad in person once we arrive and is hoping that they can spend some time together alone for lunch, made it clear that it would just be the two of them. Eeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkk! I know my boyfriend and I know that he is very inclusive......I have my suspicions that he is going to ask my Dad for my hand in marriage like the good ole' Southern boy he is and I AM OVER THE MOON EXCITED! Cross those fingers!
In an odd coincidence, my very first weekend down South, the same weekend I believe my hand may be given to Crush forever......
Awful Ex-Boyfriend will be married for the second time just slightly North of the US border.
Life goes on.
