Since October I’ve been doing work training three days a week, and lately four days a week. It’s all part of my working towards coming back to a normal life. There’s now talk of me actually getting a one year contract, which means I might actually get paid for the work that I do. Actual money! That would be so awesome.
If there are no issues, the idea is that I start the contract on 16 April (since my official work training ends on 15th). I really hope there aren’t any problems. But there are a lot of rules and regulations with these things since it’s a special contract due to my health issues. Fingers crossed though. Hopefully I’ll know in the next few weeks.
Another positive thing (for me at least), is that next Friday (21st), the boyfriend is coming to visit for a week. We’re making a conscious effort to see each other more often, and are doing quite well I think. Last time we saw each other was when I visited him in mid-January.
It’s a funny thing though… The more we see each other, the more difficult it is to be apart. I don’t recommend a long-distance relationship to anyone, but it can be done. I think we’ve proven that since it’s now 2½ years since our first meeting. It’s definitely not something we want to continue for too much longer though. Eventually someone is going to have to move (most likely me).
Anyway, for now, I’m just going to feel happy about the positive things in my life. I may have a paid employment soon, and the boyfriend is coming to visit. Two very positive things!
