I'm happy today. Happier than I've been in two weeks. My girlfriend (on and off) of seven years has returned from her trip to China. Over the years, we have never gone two weeks without hearing each other's voice. I don't even think we've ever gone a full twenty four hours, whether we wanted to rip each other's head off, or whether we were getting along (if it's fair to call it getting along).
I'm whole again. Hearing her voice was amazing.
The weather has been terrible over the past few days. I stayed indoors mostly, obliviously watching my dog destroy some Magic cards I'd left on the coffee table, among other things. She's back now, and it's a bright sunny day; I don't care what the window dictates. I'll go outside and enjoy the weather.
