♬ Tick tock tick… Doo doo doo-doo… Tick tock tick… Doo doo doo-doo… Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’… Into the future… ♬ Yep. That old Steve Miller Band song is certainly right. Of late here at the ol’ Litterbox, it seems Time is slipping right away from this wee Catgirl no matter how hard I try to grab hold and hang on. Never enough hours in the day….
Work is… as always… at the top of my list of things that seem to compete for my precious personal free time these last couple months. Mind you, it isn’t all endless grueling drudgery for lil’ ol’ me, though… I’m happy to say that “married life” is making it’s own dent in my personal “Me” time….. and there I definitely have no complaints. 🙂
So… even if I’ve been busy, busy, busy, I figured I could at least take a few moments this Saturday to do a quick lil’ Diary post and let all my Gentle Visitors know what we’ve been up to. So here goes!!
Oh yes… It’s know it’s been just a few weeks…. but I just can’t seem to get over just how much I like being a newlywed. Seriously. I mean… somewhere in the back of my noggin’ I’ve always had the idea that someday I’d be married… and I’ve even always had a vague notion of what I expected it to be like… but really I never expected to just plain enjoy the feeling of finally being married. Of knowing I have someone who wants to spend the rest of my life being with me…. Loving me unconditionally and completely… Sigh… that sense of belonging is so… darn… intoxicating. Powerful… And amazingly comforting. It has me in it’s grip and I never want it to let go. ❤
There’s really only one person in the whole world who understands that feeling exactly the way I’m experiencing it and that’s my wonderful loving wifey, Carolyn. I awaken every morning now to her smiling face… and a heartfelt, sweetly teasing, “Good morning Mrs. Carstairs….”. She knows it makes me blush… and it’s sooooo weird… I mean “Mrs Carstairs?”…. I mean… Really…. That’s my mom!!! Only…. now it’s me too… How crazy is that? 😀
There’s lots of other things that pop up too to remind me. Oooohhh!! Oooohh!! We actually got our first bit of “Married Junk Mail” here at the apartment!!! From… of all things… an insurance company looking to cash in on our new wedded bliss. That was kind of annoying…. but at least they almost got it right…. “Attn: Mrs. & Mrs Carstairs”…. Ummmm? No, silly people!! We each kept our own family names!! But at least they tried… and they did recognize us as actually being a legally married couple, so I’ll cut them some slack. 😉
Ahhhh… Not only that… but the college where Carolyn works got in contact with me just last week to offer me the standard family discount for family and spouses should I want to take courses or participate in some of the non-traditional Summer classes they offer. Awwww!! Soooo darn nice of them to make the effort. Heck… we might even take them up on it…. Carolyn still wants to take the Kickboxing Intro course and now that our Tai-Chi training has progressed to swordplay, (and as it’s seems I’m actually pretty good at it… ) I’m seriously thinking my inner “Warrior Princess” just might be ready for it. 🙂
Yep. We’ve been pretty much both concentrating our time on each other lately. Not that we’ve ever been reluctant to share time doing stuff together… but finally being married means being completely “out”… and we’ve stopped shying away from unconsciously doing things together that would give away our feelings for each other. So there are more dinners out… more movies at the theater… more drinks and dancing at our favorite niteclub… more walks hand in hand in the park … more spontaneous gratuitous displays of mutual affection… more of just us enjoying being “Us”.
The biggest news is that we’re actually going to go off on our Honeymoon soon too! Yes indeedy!! My sweetie booked us a wonderful train excursion so we can spend a romantic week’s trip out to visit Mom and Dad along with some time for stops along the way to relax…. and yes, yes, yes… probably squeeze in as much “sexy fun time” as we can stand along the way. 😉
So… now hopefully I’ll be able to get back later this weekend with another Movie Review for you Gentle Visitors, and I’ll certainly try to be a more responsible blogger and get some other stuff up soon in the next week as well, but once the 12th rolls around I’ll be gone away on my crazy romantic adventure till the 22nd.
Well that’s all for now, I guess… but don’t worry o’ Gentle Visitors…. even as busy as I get, I promise I’ll always find a way to make time for the the cozy confines of my comfy Litterbox, and until next time out, a big warm hug, and “Meow meow, for now!!”
