I had my “procedure” yesterday. I was so scared and so freaked out, but it turned out not to be so bad. But today I’m really sore, and not feeling very well. I had to come back to work. My assistant was good enough to come in for 2 days during her vacation so that I could get this taken care of, I just couldn’t ask her to come in today too. But I would really like to be laying in my bed right now, snuggled up to M, and trying to drift to sleep so I can forget how sore I am for awhile. Tomorrow will be no better. I have to go to my mother’s house for a birthday party for my cousins. Then I have to drive for about an hour, and perform a wedding for a couple of friends. So I suppose I’ll just have to wait and rest on Sunday.

This will be the first wedding I will perform. I’m looking forward to it. In the state of Florida, any Notary Public is able to join people in marriage. This particular couple has waited a long time to be able to do this. I’m so excited to be there and be a part of such a special moment.

Dear M

Filed under: Uncategorized — justjoanie @ 3:12 pm


Hope I’ve told you enough just how much I love you. Our time together lately has been some of the best times in my life. Still hoping to get back to the way things were in the beginning, but right now, I’m content with our relationship. Dating you again has been a fun experience. I feel like we are getting to know each other so much better than we did before. I’m looking forward to the day that you can look at me and tell me that you are completely with me and only me. I know that you are working through issues with feelings that you have elsewhere, but I feel like you are really trying to get over them, and that you are coming back to me.

I don’t know if you realize just how special you are to me. Or how completely sure I am that we are suppose to be together. I so can’t wait for you to move back into our home one day. You are my safe haven, my soft place to land at the end of the day, and lately the way that you look at me tells me you feel the same.

In the past week you’ve looked at me like you have fallen in love with me again. You told me that you “had a moment” while we were in line for a ride on vacation. I hope you have more and more of those moments. I have them. I look at you sometimes and just fall in love with you all over again. I can’t wait for the long weekend. We are spending so much of it together. When I’m with you I feel like I can relax and be myself, and let everything go. When I feel you hold my hand or put your arms around me, I know that everything is ok. I hope that someday my touch can make you feel the same.

I know you don’t think so, but you really are a good person. You are beautiful. Your life is what you make it. I found this quote today…….

“If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author and every day you have the opportunity to write a new page. Keep the pages turning and make it a best seller. Life is only what you make it!”

I printed it for you. I have an idea for a surprise. I may work on it tonight. I want to get everything together before I see you this weekend. I’m hoping that it will help you work through some of your issues. With how great things have been going lately, though, I’m a little worried to give you my input. I don’t want to ruin a good thing. Maybe I’ll just give you the quote and leave the rest of the surprise for another time.

I love you so much!

You are my love, my heart, my partner, my forever,
