I’m late coming to your thread, but I wanted to make sure to post to you. I have had viral pneumonia for the past week and a half, so my visits to the forum have been sporadic at best.
It sounds like you have been really busy with your projects at home, but I bet it feels good when you look at the results! I know what you mean about
the energy saving bulbs – I like a warmer light, too, and those new ones are kind of cold. It was nice of you to help out with Buzzy – I bet he really appreciated it. You are such a kind person.
I think you have a good perspective on the situation with your lady. I know it’s so hard when you care and want to be close. You were right to stand up for yourself and to be honest with her – that is a must in any relationship. I can tell you love her very much, and I know she knows the same. You’re wise to allow for a ‘period of reflection’, and I do believe that everything happens according to a divine schedule. So be patient, and know that you are doing the right thing. You’re a wonderful person, and things will work out for you in the end. Take care.
