Due to unforseen circumstances, this blog did not resume on November 27th much to the disappointment of Jonny and other readers. Since I last posted (apart from the last two announcements), I ...
waited to pick Mike up at the airport not realizing that he slipped through while I took a quick toilet break.
waited upstairs for 1/2 an hour, dismayed when I saw the flight crew of the last commercial flight of the night walk through.
panic-stricken rushed downstairs.
turned the corner and saw poor Mike sitting amongst his things waiting for his internet-girlfriend who "didn't show".
gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek and held his hand as we walked to the car.
showed him my stomping grounds on Bardstown Road.
admired the architecture while he was enamoured with the American cars, driving on the wrong side of the street, the plethora of wires above ground, and sign posts and trash cans that one could easily steal not being bolted to the ground.
sat in coffee shops with my boyfriend.
went to church with my boyfriend.
went to class with my boyfriend ... is that CHRISTINE with a GUY?!!!
told the first man I have ever kissed that I would marry him.
talked to people in Australia and Germany on the internet in a grocery store.
tried out two massage chairs late at night in a department store.
took Mike to a shopping mall.
read children's stories in a book store.
read Scripture and prayed every night with Mike.
played in leaves and walked in the park (the 4-wheel drive version complete with piggyback ride through the brush).
celebrated Mike's birthday with friends at Joe's Crab Shack.
allowed Mike to drive my car back from Indianapolis after a daytrip.
nursed a horrid earache, congestion, and rib-bruising cough.
welcomed my parents to Louisville, Kentucky.
went to a hair salon with my mom while Mike didn't waste anytime asking my dad if he could marry me.
received my parents' permission to marry over breakfast the next morning as Mike and I played with plastic dinosaurs, sharks, and wolves.
went to a tank museum.
celebrated our engagment with friends at Sunergos.
played at a park while all the kids were in school.
said goodbye to Mike at the airport when he left to fly back to Australia.
flew to Los Angeles to celebrate my grandmother's 75th birthday and Thanksgiving.
missed my flight back due to insufficient staffing at the American Airlines counter. (reason for not posting on the 27th)
talked to the shuttle driver on the way back to my grandmother's.
laughed when he told me that I should write to Lifetime TV so that they could make Mike's and my story into a movie.
arrived back in Louisville a day late having missed 2 exams.
I am currently ...
studying to make up the exams I missed.
looking forward to being in Tasmania in less than 2 weeks.
