An evening walk

To preface this entry, I must note that SB hates it when I blog about him. He thinks I have plenty to say without talking about him and he likes to point out how boring blogs can be when they become solely about a boyfriend or girlfriend.

With that said, I’m going to blog a little about SB.

He started his new library job on Tuesday. We’d been having so much fun setting-up house together that I was sad to send him off for the day and to know that he’d be gone everyday for most days into the future. Still, I was excited to hear about his amazing new job and for him to begin experiencing the job in full.

He’s working directly with a team of 12 other librarians and there are something like 30 librarians in his office. I think having all those peers around is going to make for a terrific work space. He says he’s starting to be able to classify the general personlity types of librarians. Ahhh, the categorization of everything bug must be a classic sign of the library type.

So far the move and the setting-up of house has been great. Tuesday night, after work, we rode our bicycles around the neighborhood, exploring the designated bike paths. Last night we took a meandering walk through our hood, ending up at the local pizza place, where we bought two giant slices of New York style pie for under $5.

Years ago, when I lived with Rosie, we had a couple who lived upstairs from us. Every night, after work, they would go for a walk together. Rosie, who was deep in the courting phase with her now husband, used to sit at the window and sigh over how she wished her life were like theirs. At the time I couldn’t imagine finding the man I would want to walk with every night. Now here I am, with SB at my side and I couldn’t be happier.


  1. Ah yes , the nightly walks of the “nesting” couple upstairs. I cracked up when I read this (thanks for the plug!) because everytime Matt and I haven taken walks since I think of them and that this is the way it’s supposed to be. I am so happy to know that you and SB are equally enjoying your walks in your new neighborhood.
