the next couple of days

Today I couldn’t get up. I hit snooze for 45 minutes before finally moving myself to the shower. On my way home I bought two new pairs of shoes on sale.

Tomorrow J’s parents are coming and I will be biting my tongue and trying very hard not to reveal any details. Tomorrow night I will eat with his parents and his sister while he works on Monday’s presentation.

Sunday I plan to bake bread and cake for Tuesday night’s celebratory dinner. J will be away most of the day preparing and I will try hard to be the best girlfriend ever and say the right things and serve him juice or coffee before he asks for it.

Monday he will defend the dissertation. At the dinner with the panel of experts I will be the “showable” girlfriend who makes conversation and laughs and keeps in the back.

Tuesday I get to call him “Doctor J” and expect him to cook dinner and shop and wash and clean.

Tuesday we get to start a whole new life together and I can’t wait.
