Well, Danny will be off to college soon – ahh, I remember those days well – so I’m sure he’ll have many stressful days, especially if he insists on majoring in engineering, like he says. But good news, he’s been accepted to the University of Wisconsin, my alma mater! He’s going to be an ACTUAL Badger, and he’ll be living with me in my old castle while he goes there!! I’m so excited for it~!
Ahem! But I’m getting off the subject.
The good part about having an older partner like myself is that at the end of a difficult week slaving over a hot computer, I will be there waiting with hot chocolate, a soft cashmere blanket, and a nice comfy bed to snuggle in while I listen to your troubles and praise you for your hard work.
Trust me, I double-majored in college and even before my accident I would rarely want to canoodle right after finishing a hard week. It’s so much effort.
Saturday morning, though… ❤
Vlad pretty much has me down pat. Hot coco or cider on stressful days, snuggling on plain old bad days, letting me rant till I tire myself out… Also, on really REALLY bad days, he lets me take my frustrations out with a little sparring. Helps wear me out too~ He’s very good to me~
I’m looking forward to moving in with him in a year for college! And I haven’t told him yet, but I’m actually double majoring myself. Engineering and astronomy… There is a lot of hot apple cider in my future I think…
Now, when Vlad has a bad day, it’s not too much different, except he likes hot tea and espresso and snuggling by the fire. Sometimes I’ll draw him a warm bath when he seems really stressed out, wash his hair and talk to him about our day. I’ll also cook him his favorite comfort foods~ always seems to feel so much better after having some of my double chocolate brownies~
So honestly, I’d have to say we really have come to learn each others needs and wants… such little things give me hope for our future together, which I intend to be a very very long one~
