It has been a very fast paced several days.  Had school on Monday and Tuesday and the last day of school before the break seemed to go on forever.  Tuesday night Matthew and I went to see Harry Potter and then we picked up Josh from the airport at 11:00 p.m.  I enjoyed sleeping in on Wednesday but once I got up, I had to get packed, finish homework, go to the bank, go to the store and get home by 11:30.  Matthew arrived a little after 11:30 and we got my car loaded.  At noon, Matthew, Josh, and Josh’s girlfriend went to Olive Garden for lunch.  It is a tradition for Josh and I to go there for our birthdays so we all went together and had a nice time.  After lunch we came back to the house and then Matthew and I hit the road for a quick trip to Albuquerque.  We got to my aunt’s house around 5:30 ABQ time and had several hours to kill until my aunt got home from church.  We relaxed with some wine and watched a movie.  My aunt arrive home a little before 9:00 and we visited for a bit but then we were both really tired so we headed to bed around 10:30.  We slept in the next morning and just hung out for a few hours until it was time to head to town.  We had Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant run by one of my cousin’s and a friend of one of my other aunt’s.  We had turkey and ham and all the trimmings.  It was a nice way to spend Thanksgiving without having to do any cooking or fight the crowds.  We headed back to my aunt’s house around 3:30 and then she showed Matthew their property, the goats, and the horse that will play fetch.  Matthew and I hit the road again shortly after 5:00 to head home.  We stayed at his place that night and then headed to Sweetwater for the football game the next afternoon.  Our team made a good effort, but didn’t pull it out in the end.  We stayed the night in Sweetwater and headed home this morning.  I now have a cold and am feeling a little miserable, but really enjoyed the time I was able to spend with Matthew.  He had to head home as he is going to the Texas Tech game with a friend of his this evening.  I’m just going to stay in bed and do nothing today.  I have to take Josh to the airport very early tomorrow morning. 

One of my commenters asked whether Matthew and I have had sex.  I’m just going to say you’ll have to leave that up to your imaginations.  Either we have, and I’m not going to kiss and tell, or we haven’t and there’s nothing to tell.  I think we do have an amazing relationship regardless of whether it has delved into other areas.  I think that one test of a relationship is whether or not two people can travel together and like each other at the end.  I can say that we are doing well in that regard.  He is an amazing and thoughtful person.  I think he his a very good match for me and I think he feels the same way about me.  Our relationship needs and wants are at a very similar level.  We both have the same hopes and fears when it comes to relationships.  I think our communication with each other goes above and beyond any relationship I’ve ever been in.  Sometimes I am surprised to find myself in a relationship.  It seemed to happen almost suddenly and without effort on my part.  For the first time, I feel truly appreciated by someone for just being me and it is an amazing feeling.

As they say. It's always when you're not looking and just kinda going on with your life that a relationship falls into your lap.

Whether you are being intimate or not, well that's your business IMHO

Hope you had a wonderful trip and are feeling much better.
