The Long and Winding Road....

......That leads to your door.......

I was listening to The Fab Four earlier this week while doing homework and comes to mind today as I am again working on said homework. That said, the in-between time for Babushka and I has been a curvy and confusing path indeed:
  • Great Sex
  • Closeness and Intimacy
  • Heartfelt but Difficult Discussion
  • More Great Sex
  • More Intimacy and Closeness
  • Greater Disagreement and Misunderstanding
  • More Heartfelt but Difficult Discussion
That's alot of activity for about a 36 hour timeframe but it is the reality of Babushka and I right now. There is much raw emotion within both of us, which can manifest itself in many ways - Fear, Passion, Gratitude, Resentment, Humor and Joy, Worries and Sorrow.

We both have alot of "stuff" on our plates right now, more than either of us would like. Yet we both are missing things that we would like added to our plate. Perhaps it is not that we have too much "stuff" we are juggling, just that we wish to be juggling different "stuff".

What I do know is that I am proud of us both and grateful to be here right now. You always hear that 'relationships take work'. I always hated hearing that when my Ex said that to me - it was her way trying to get me to accept my unhappiness as normal. My response was always "I am not afraid of the hard work, but both people have to be working toward the same thing". We never were.

Babushka and I are working toward the same vision: A life together; a life with one another; a life of sharing, laughing and loving; a life of challenge, disappointment and misunderstanding; a life of forgiveness and a life of serenity.

It is work- but it is work that is well worth the effort.

We are working toward the same thing......toward each other!

CONGRATULATIONS on hitting the 2-year mark Kahuna!

Relationships are never easy, are they? But as long as you both continue to work towards the same goals, you'll be just fine!
