I'm glad I'm not one of those types of people that has to plan things in advance.
Last week the plan was that boyfriend and I would meet in Prescott, he'd get his tax receipts turned in. We'd stay with matchmakers, and then have a nice time.
Then he said "I thought the 17th was a Thursday." He'd forgotten to mention that the 17th was the planned date of him leaving Hawaii....opps. But he was still thinking he'd arrive in Prescott Friday and stay Monday to see the tax guy.
Then the matchmakers decide they'll be out of town that weekend. So the NEXT
weekend will be Prescott. Which I like better since that's the weekend before my birthday. But he asked if I'd come out to see him on the 17th. I said that I offered initially, so the offer was still on the table - yes I'll come see him in San Diego.
I then asked "so when are you going to arrive in SD?"
"Don't know yet. Company is still working on getting me a ticket. But the crews that have rotated in and out generally arrive in SD around 8:00 or 9:00 PM."
Which is fine with me because I have a work committment that I can get out of the way before I hit the road to SD.
Last night he called me. "They're still working on the plane ticket. But I might not be able to get out on Friday after all. If that's true, then I'll come out to your place Monday after I stop by the office. We'll spend that week together and then I'll head up to Prescott Friday, and you can join me when you get done with work."
Sounds like a waste of gas, but for the two of us to drive together takes him out of his way to bring me back before he heads back to San Diego. Besides, I still have a work committment on the 24th, and would rather him get an early start to Prescott to take care of his taxes.
Personally, I'm silently rooting for the "can't get a plane ticket on Friday, he'll drive out to see me for the week before the 24th". I can take half days here and there, so that'll be really nice.
The last minute nature of this doesn't bother me at all. Either way, my work will still get done, and I'll get to see boyfriend again. That's a plus anyway I look at it.
