He drove over 2,200 miles in two and a half days-- can you tell he wanted to be here now? He got here around 1:00 in the afternoon, and went with me to go pick up Connor from school. The little guy was so excited when he saw his daddy! And Eden was super excited too when she came home from school to find his car in the driveway. It's so great to have him here.
Jer and I have been in a relationship for around thirteen years now, and we were just kids when we started dating. I think of us kind of like neighboring trees that, over time, grew into each other until they can't be separated anymore; I can't imagine a life without him. So I always feel like something's missing when he's not around. It's nice to feel complete again!
So we went to Eden's physical therapy, and then headed out for pizza-- the first pizza Jer's apparently had in a year and a half. Needless to say, he enjoyed it. He spent a year and a half renting a room out of someone else's house, and I don't think he felt comfortable with the idea of leaving leftovers in their fridge. And while he likes it a lot, he doesn't like pizza enough to eat the whole thing in one sitting. So he was pretty psyched about pizza here at home!
He's here for just under two weeks, and then I'm not sure when we'll see him again. I'm sure the time he's here will just fly by, and all too soon he'll be headed out for his next phase of school. But in the meantime, we're going to enjoy every second with him.
I'm so excited he's here!
