21 April 2008

A Pair. A Trio. Now Solo.

Lucy moved out in the middle of April. You might recall I wrote about her moving here in October of 2006. A year and a half later, I can tell you that Lucy decided Las Vegas was not for her. She didn't like the crime, the dirt, the poor customer service, the expensive bars, or being home alone. She drove back up to North Dakota and Jesse went with her. Yes. That means I'm alone again.

I honestly can't say when Jesse's coming back to Las Vegas. He left April 17th. He is adamant about going to his cousin's graduation on May 17th, and he can't afford to fly back and forth.

By May 18th, Jesse will have spent more time away from me in 2008 than with me. It's not the same as a military deployment or series of business trips. My boyfriend is choosing to leave me for weeks at a time. I'm not pleased. I'm actually really sad and confused about it. I've asked him to come home early but this graduation is the world to him - even though it was out of the question when I brought it up in November. There's also no guarantee he'll come back the day, weekend, week after it's over.

I feel like I'm being punished, but I know I didn't do anything wrong. It's crappy. Fortunately for you, it's my pity party. I encourage you not to join.
