just to be clear, this ethics test was not so good.
in the way that it was so tryingly detailed.
you'll be happy to know the school thinks i'm an ethical worker.
i think.
technically, we haven't received it back.
but i knew all the answers.
because i am a compulsive student.
seriously compulsive.
as in, i lost my first points ever, marring my 100% average, near the end of winter term.
last year.
i was disappointed.
i may have issues.

but i am never disappointed with the view from my house.
especially right now.
so looking forward to seeing it dusted with snow.
we'll worry about inexperienced city snow drivers later.

and i am delighted in this pumpkiny gift from this lady's father.
extended family by adoption.
it is probably time to take it down.
but i'm not ready.
so in a few weeks, it will still be halloween.
but will also be thanksgiving.
on its way to christmas.
shortly before new years.
i plan on drawing all of this out.

this boy.
in December, it will be 2 years since our first date.
he is the best part of fall.
college football obsession included.

we have now been doing "long distance"
longer than when we had lived in the same town.
he is still shockingly good at long distance.
visiting, calling, all of it.

we do not get the luxury of having a normal relationship.
time is sacred.
phone calls are sacred.
{we watched the election coverage together ... on the phone}

so looking forward to our second set of holidays together.
so grateful that we are automatically included in each other's plans.

when you get one like this, you hold on.

Happy Fall.
