About More than expected

Previous Entry More than expected Nov. 26th, 2008 @ 12:12 pm Next Entry
I came to Chicago just about 1 year ago for a 4 to 6 month contract. Yes, I can count and no, this isn't a plot to an episode of Gilligan's Island.

I could have left before now, but I met Elva and fell in love with her. I've asked her to marry me and we're planning a wedding for next summer.

She is wonderful and there is nowhere I would rather be than sitting next to her, feeling her lean against me and holding her hand.

I have moved about an hour south so I can be closer to her. I have a nice little apartment in view of the railroad tracks. "How often does the train go by?" "So often you won't even notice it.".

The 4 to 6 month contract has become a full time job and I am working on selling my house in Mississippi.

I love Elva so much that I am going to live where there is winter again.

Congratulations!

Now that I live in the cool grey world of twilight, and the noon sun looks like morning anywhere else, I'm actually missing those cold clear days in the MidWest. Just remember the best trick I ever learned: a good jacket is worth the price!

To be fair, your worst complaint was always about shoveling the driveway, and I don't think anyone is going to ask that of you where you are now.

Found your ice scraper yet?

Now that's a heartfelt tribute! Best wishes to both of you.
