My last day with EJ was pretty nice considering I wouldn’t be hanging out with her for another 9 months or so. EJ asked me if I wanted her to take me to Rivendell or just have a veg day with Netflix and cuddles on the couch. Of course, my nerdy self was torn. I mean. Rivendell. But she told me that set was taken down and it’s just the National Park it was filmed at. I decided that Netflix and cuddles actually sounded perfect. We had been running almost everyday was there. To actually chill and sit next to her and do absolutely nothing sounded amazing!
And that’s what we did. Except for when we went to the mall to look for a gift for my grandparents. They were last on my list. And I couldn’t really find anything for them. But EJ found these beautiful coasters that had New Zealand made of Paua shells. I also got hats and other trinkets for brothers in law, a niece and nephew.
I really wanted to try the Kiwi Favourite burger at McDonald’s. We headed to the food court. She was going to get a NYC Benedict Bagel but she decided for sushi. I wanted to try some chicken sushi. She bought me one to try. It was delicious. My bestie had me try a tuna sushi roll and I almost barfed. Chicken is better. The Kiwi burger was really good but not as good as the Bastard at Burger Fuel. With our tummies full and the threat of the evil one lurking at the mall soon, we made our way back home.
It was junk food day! We had ice cream, chips, popcorn, and milky bars. We cuddled in and started watching Sherlock. We also watched The Holiday and Crazy Stupid Love. We didn’t go to sleep that night because I had to be at the airport at 3am. It was just an awesome lazy doing nothing day.
I’ll just summarize the airport since it really isn’t anything spectacular. Lots of sads. Lots and lots of sads. We were able to hang out for a few hours before I had to make my way through security and my way back to the States.
We kept it together pretty well even though it was killing us on the inside. It wasn’t until that last hug. That last kiss. That’s when we cried. I’m no longer going to be seeing that face. Holding that hand. Kissing those lips. She is going to be on the other side of the computer screen once again. It was just Hell.
The flights back to Illinois were not smooth as it was getting over to her. On my longest flight, I was stuck in between two men. One was picking his nose and flicking his boogers. The other was rubbing his junk and smelling it. Not once or twice but EVERY FIVE MINUTES. I was so miserable. Missing my Honey Bee and stuck in between grossness!! I just wanted to get off this plane. I did not sleep very well. My flight from LAX to ORD was ok until we tried to land in Chicago. There was a storm and they couldn’t not get clearance to land. I was so afraid that I was going to miss my flight. It turned out that my flight back to my hometown was cancelled and I had to spend the night in O’Hare. I was so upset! I just wanted to be back home with my babies.
FINALLY! 7am rolls around and I was back on my way to my girls. I slept almost the whole flight. It was so awesome to see my girls! I missed them!! I slept most of that day as well.
So, that’s that. My long distance relationship is continuing. I am head over heels in love with this woman. She can’t get rid of me even though we are on the other side of the world from each other.
