Garden State

Dave is in Michigan for a few days, picking up his car and packing his furniture, which is in storage at his parents’ house, in preparation for his move to New Jersey. So things are going to be a bit quiet around here until Wednesday night, when he’s due to come back into the city.

Things are going so well with him! We communicate well and I really enjoy his low-key personality and (occasionally juvenile, he admits) sense of humor. We spend lots of time together, learn from each other and it all seems very natural. “Where have you been all my life?!”

The fact that he’s moving is a drag, but I don’t expect it to be a huge hurdle. He’ll be in East Brunswick, which isn’t that far from the city -- about a 40-minute train ride. There’s really no question that he needs to live where he’s working, so we just have to make the best of it. Then there’s the added (but adorable) complication of his dogs, which will make it hard for him to be away from home for too long.

Bottom line: New Jersey, here I come! (Well, on weekends, anyway!)

The things we do for love. Sheesh.

awww, that's sweet! (Maybe NJ could adopt that flying heart and come up with something original? Like NJ is for ...no, that's been done, let me think about it.)

( btw, How many dogs to sweetly complicate the equation?)

How does Armenia feel about canines? :) I am so happy for you. And, BTW, any guy named Dave from Michigan is a good catch. I can personally attest to that!

Sounds like things are going well for you. A forty minute train ride is nothing.

I've always felt there is much to be said about a commuter relationship, and I've had plenty. Some have even been a couple thousand miles apart. There's much to be said for having individual space.

That is not too far. Remember I come into NYC everyday from a much further distance.

I am so happy that things are going well for you.
