I happened to get exactly what I wanted for Christmas this year!
Now I think I'm one of the most low maintenance people I know. For some one so admittedly picky when it comes to women, I'm incredibly not picky in anything else. I will eat anything, in almost any amount, some days I crave specific things but I never get sick of anything; I could, and sometimes do, eat the same thing every day for weeks just because it's more convenient. I love slightly burnt cookies, I actually thing they taste better when dipped in milk than normal cookies do. When my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday dinner I told her Lasagna(the store-bought kind) and a Costco cheesecake. This Christmas when my Mom asked me what I wanted I simply asked for a magazine subscription and whatever else she thought I could use. You could say the list of things I don't like is microscopic. Personally I think this makes me the ultimate catch.
Anyway, I got exactly what I wanted today! For a few minutes I got to hear Hannah's voice and converse with her! It's funny how even though we haven't said a word to each other in 7 months, or seen each other in 10, that a conversation can be struck up as quickly as if our call had just been disconnected for a few seconds. I laugh at how we kept interrupting each other because we both had so much we wanted to say.
I think I really needed to hear Hannah's voice again, to hear it hadn't changed. Ever since I mentioned the Temple Marriage Ultimatum she's been busting my chops on a different area of my religiosity and spirituality about every other letter. This last week she was "reminding" me that she wanted a Strong Priesthood holder at the head of her future family, which is an honorable goal. I suppose my spirituality is one aspect in which I have a lot of room to grow, which will come in time I'm sure. I find it hard to explain how I feel in the written word, trust me, I've tried. I was up until about 4AM last night trying to figure out how to word them in this weeks response, but to no avail. I didn't bring it up on the phone because I felt it would be inappropriate to jump into serious matters in such a rare opportunity, so I just gave in and got swept up by the excitement. Even now I'm further considering what I will respond.
