Life w/ JH Week Ending 9/26/10

This week was another major milestone for us. I was infected by my employee and brought a cold home to me and JH. We were both sick together. It's been over a month and we get sick. It wasn't as bad as it could be.

JH is a very tolerable sick man. He's not whiny at all. That was refreshing. Hopefully we won't be sick again for another 3 years or so.

I was symptomatic first. That first night I ended up sleeping in my mom's room because I didn't want to wake him up constantly. The next morning he lectured me after asking my brother where I disappeared to. He said I should've stayed in our bed. That was funny. Then when he was symptomatic he did the same, lol. I found him at 5 am curled up in the hallway when I had to use the bathroom. So I got him up and had him come back into the bedroom. Later in he morning he asked me how he got back into the bedroom, lol.

This week was also my birthday week. He decided to make my birthday special by doing little things throughout the week. He got me a balloon, a $25 iTunes gift card, surprised me at work and took me to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. We also found a way to get some more bubble tea. Our favorite past time.

He also made his first trip to NJ on his own too. I was worried until he got home safe. He is definitely learning to get around well. I'm happy he is. I can't wait until he meets new people and starts to hang out with them too. I know I can't keep him all to myself all the time. But I know he's coming home to me.

Life w/ JH Week Ending 9/19/10

This week went well. My life is adjusted to living with JH. We had a few mishaps at night this week. I have kicked him in my sleep. He has punched me in his sleep. Not hard though. No bruising, thank goodness. It'll be hard to explain that one without him getting death threats if there was a bruise, lol.

On Friday, I started my new exercise regine. I am walking around cemetery. So it was my first night. Hopefully I can stick to this. JH is my walking partner. My brother also joined us. It was fun walking with both of them. I love talking to both of them. Right now, both of them are my world.

Saturday I promised to take JH to the Nintendo store. He's been talking about going for over a week. So I showed him more than just the store. I took him to Rockefeller Center, Apple Store, Radio City Music Hall. I also showed him Bryant Park and a Japanese store called Kinokuniya. We worked up an appetite so we went to Chevy's in Time Square, which is only a couple of blocks away. On our way there, we passed the Pop-Tart restaurant he had told me about. That is just too crazy. Just looking at the restaurant made my teeth ache.

We ate a pretty good meal at Chevy's. We packed our dinner to go and we had desert. He had a brownie sundae and I had the flan. The portion sizes were ridiculous. I barely finished mine and JH cleaned his plate then mine. I then had an idea to pick up some bubble tea for later. So we went to China Town for some before we headed home.

Sunday, I needed to concentrate on getting my taxes done. So JH was giving me some space when I got a rare invite from my friend Crystal. She invited us to Governor's Island. It was a good time.

Afterwards we stopped at Canal Street for some bubble tea with them. I ended up getting a bubble juice instead. JH tried the coconut bubble tea. I figured my brother deserved one too.

So after we parted ways with Crystal and her boyfriend, Ricardo, we went to my normal bubble tea spot. I ended up buying 6 teas and cream cake. I wanted the bubble tea for the next day. JH swears I'm addicted. He shouldn't talk because he goes thru hi-chews like no tomorrow. So as you can tell, my tax work was axed for the day; but I had fun.

Life with JH Week Ending 9/12/10

This week with JH was not very exciting. But we did hit a huge milestone in our relationship. I feel it was huge but he was excited about it. I wasn't too excited.

This week I had to take out my braids. No one except immediate family, with an exception for Crystal and June, have seen me take out my braids. I feel the most unattractive. My hair looks awful, dirty and nappy. I find it repulsive. JH found this to be so much fun. He was looking forward to seeing the natural me.

It takes me a week to take them out. I start on Monday and finish by Friday. On Saturday I get my hair permed. Thru the week he stuck close to me. I even let him feel my hair. Might as well let him get very familiar with my natural hair.

By time I was done, he still looked at me with adoring eyes. I felt so much better then. This man is a definite keeper. He has accepted me as I am. Nappy hair and all.

Life w/ JH Week Ending 9/5/10

It's now 2 full weeks that JH has been living with. One thing for sure is that he's keeping me busy and active. This week we didn't do much sightseeing. Most of the week was a blur. Couple of days really stand out to me.

Wednesday, JH had to come to the city to job hunt. So we ended up meeting up to have lunch together. We ended up eating Qdoba and sitting outside by the park. That was so nice. Wish he could work near me so we can do this often.

Thursday was the big day. It was time for him to meet my Godmother. So he met me by my job so we could go there together. My godmother took to him. We ate dinner at her favorite restaurant "Bella Luna." After dinner we took a walk in Central Park. I took some pictures of the two of them. They looked cute.

My godmother also gave him some information on volunteer jobs.

Friday I dragged him with me to the laundrymat do we could wash the last 2 comforters I needed to wash. Afterwards I took him to Kings Plaza. He seemed to like the mall. It's nothing like the malls in the West, that's for sure. It's a mall none the less.

Saturday we had to get ready for our party that evening by getting some groceries. First we stopped at a diner for breakfast. He orders the most ridiculous meal. It was an ice cream sundae ontop of a belgium waffle!!!! OMG that was ridiculous!!

Later, we have the party. The most important people showed up. Ericka (late as usual), Shauna, Crystal and her boyfriend Ricardo. We had a good time talking, eating and watching tv. They all liked him. Ericka cracked me up when she walked by him and said, "my gosh you're tall." I'm glad they took to him. He really is a great guy.

I am starting to feel that this arrangement is going to work for the long haul. I still marvel at him when it comes down sharing my space. I can't believe I'm actually living with my boyfriend. It feels really good coming home to someone who cares and spoils me.
Let's start a new week.
