Yesterday was my brother’s and my father-in-law’s birthdays. Too complicated. Actually, it wasn’t my brother’s birthday (his is on March 17th), but he decided to celebrated it yesterday, because it was Saturday and he didn’t have any exam for the university this coming week. So he could have a party and enjoy. OK. I understand. Get it. Really.
But what about me? It’s not my birthday, fine. But I have to be in both birthday’s parties! Has anyone thought about it? Uh… No. So there I was… well, there WE were! Jimmy and I. Both of us were in trouble. Because BOTH were invited to BOTH parties! Soo, as I was saying, there we were this Saturday morning, hurrying up to go to a restaurant with my family and then running to Jimmy’s house to be with his parents and have dinner! Result: I couldn’t enjoy any party. 😦 Disappointing. I would have loved to be more time with my family, but I know this wouldn’t have been fair for Jimmy. And we like to do things together. Spending our (free) time together. So this was the only option.
I wish our relatives realize that we love being together, and that… we can’t be in different places at the same time!!
This kind of things used to be the reason of our arguments. Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Easter… Each family wanted us to spend the holidays with them, and we couldn’t reach any agreement or if we did, one of us wasn’t happy. Now we have learned and we have decided to stop arguing for these things. And I’m happy to announce that this time, we haven’t argued. Lesson learned. 🙂
And today was my mother-in-law’s birthday’s party (her birthday is tomorrow), so we have a delicious lunch at Jimmy’s house. I love my mother-in-law’s cooking. Always delicious. It’s influenced by Spanish, Italian and Argentinian food. So imagine… Good meat, pasta and the best desserts!!! Today we had lasagne and birthday cake! (I can’t believe I ate 3 different cakes this weekend). Yummy!!!! 😀

And… now, after a weekend of celebrations, a new week starts. And we have to work… Ugh!
So… have a good week start!!
It is in days like this when I need you the most, and there you are. Always. With a big smile, and a warm hug. And even if it lasts just a few seconds, it makes me happy for the rest of the day. So thank you, Jimmy, for being always with me, no matter what.
Today wasn’t my day, and I was very depressed. Besides, I couldn’t use my car, because my father needed it. So I had to run around 2 Km. (1.24 miles) to give my lessons and another 2 Km to come home. And running. With more than 23ºC (74ºF), the sun in my face, and running, because I had to give more lessons, but now in MY house. I arrived late. Of course. Because today was NOT definitely my day. And when I have a bad day, it’s REALLY bad. Anything turns out well. And besides, I worked till 9 pm. 😦 But I found some energy when I saw Jimmy just for 20 minutes. 20 minutes next to me, while I was running home to be on time for the next class. He managed to make me smile and forget all my problems. We were together just 20 min, but they were the happiest 20 min of the day!
So for making me feel better, for reminding me to look on the bright side, for being always with me (even when I’m unbearable… *cough* quite often *cough*), for giving me that special hugs when I need them the most, for listening to me… for being just the way you are: THANK YOU, Jim. I’ll always love you.
It’s being a strange day today… I haven’t received any e-mail from my sweetheart. Normally he sends one or two e-mails from work to wish me a good day and ask me how my day is going. But today, nothing. Nothing. Nothing!
I don’t want to be paranoic, but it seems to me that something is wrong… I know. Sounds paranoic. Maybe he is just too busy to write me an e-mail. And besides, he is coming this evening to my house, so there may be not too many things to tell me, or he prefers to talk to me later, face-to-face… And that worries me too!
I think I’m spoilt 😉 I hope everything is fine…
I’ve decided to create a blog to share my daily experiences and ups and downs with anyone who wants to read it. I’m going to use a nick here to refer to my boyfriend and me, so as to keep our privacy… So I’m going to be Chloe and my sweetheart, Jimmy. Besides, I’ve been reading all around and I’ve seen couples sticking their names together, creating supercutes combos! And, to be honest, my boyfriend’s name and mine as one isn’t cute at all!! But changing my name to Chloe and my boyfriend’s to Jimmy, the result is Chimmy! and I love it! 😀 However, apart from that, all the information told here will be real and true.
Sooo… I think I better tell you something about me. I’m Chloe and I live in a beautiful town, in Spain. I’m 22 and I’ve just finished my degree in Translation. My experience at the university wasn’t exciting at all. In fact, it was a nightmare… But I’ll tell you more about this chapter of my life another day… I’ve always been a good student and I loved learning new things… But what I always really loved was foreign languages. English, in particular. And French too. And German… And Japanese! I went to a strict and good school and high school. I started learning French at the age of 4, and English when I was 12. I finished high school and went to college. I didn’t have to move to another town, because I could study what I wanted here, and I thought it was a good university (I said “I thought”…).
I met my boyfriend when I had just started my first year at college. And now we’re thinking of marriage!! After 4 year together… Time flies!! My boyfriend is from Argentina, but moved to Spain with his parents when he finished high school. They wanted to start a new life, away from the poverty and criminality, and the endless economic crisis existing in Argentina. He finished his degree here in 2007. He is now an industrial engineer, and works at a multinational firm. He is already in his second year there!! I’m so proud of him…! He has always been a hard-working, honest and sweet person. He deserves the best of life (yeah, what else can I say? I’m so deeply in love with him…) And now here we are. Ready to open a new chapter of our life.
Hope you enjoy our adventure.
