I Think I'll Keep My Day Job

So Brendan always writes me poems so today I thought to myself... Self, I will write Brendan a poem today... here its is.

Love me tender love me right
All I want is for you to hold me tight
I will always love you with all my might
And hug you and kiss you all night
And when we go to the park and fly a kite
I promise I will try not to bite
Promise to never want to fight
And I will bring some light
To a marriage that will always seem bright
Because we want to do it right

Yeah I think I will keep my day job

I LOVE Surprises!!!

Saturday October 1st

I was talking to Brendan on the phone and was having another one of those moments (for those of you who don't know what one of those moments are for me that is when I am in tears not wanting to be in Idaho Falls anymore and really just wanting to be in Boise with Brendan). While I was crying Brendan asked me if there was anything he could do for me. I told him that all I wanted was for him to have his arms around me. His response was "Witney my arms are always around you". I then told him that I didn't want to pretend anymore that I just wanted everything to go through so that I could just be with him. We then just continued talking and Brendan got me to stop crying and then he said he was tired and wanted to go to bed. Understandable considering he worked all day long and it was close to midnight. So we went to bed.

Sunday October 2nd

My phone starts ringing at 8:46am. I at this point am slightly confused because it was Sunday morning and I didn't think I had set an alarm. When I finally woken up enough to realize that it was Brendan calling me I answered it and started talking. Conversation went a little like this...

Witney: Good morning

Brendan: Good morning beautiful

Witney: Are you heading to Nathans?
(knowing the night before that he was going to go over there for breakfast and conference.)

Brendan: I'm on the road yes

Witney: When did you wake up?

Brendan: I have been up for a while now.

Witney: Did you get up at 8?

Brendan: A little bit before then I couldn't sleep.

Witney: oh man I hate it when that happens.

then some more stuff was said that I don't remember...

Brendan: Witney I love you more than anything, you know that right?

Witney: Yes I know and I love you more than anything too.

Brendan:  You know that I would do anything for you right?

Witney: Yeah I remember you telling me that once haha.

Brendan: Once?

Witney: Ok maybe more then once I lost count once I ran out of fingers.

Brendan: Witney... you don't need to pretend anymore... come outside.

Witney: What?

Brendan: Come outside Witney.

I then got out of my bed looked out the window and there was Brendan driving into my driveway. So I ran outside gave him a huge hug and said. "What are you doing here?" (by the way I'm crying) and then we hugged and kissed and I was so excited to see him.

I found out later once I had calmed down from all the excitement that when I had told him that I was done pretending he had set his alarm for 4:30 at that moment so that he could wake up early enough to come and spend the day with me.

Today was the best day ever. I got to spend it with my best friend and even if it was only for a few hours it was better then not being with him at all. I love you Brendan Owen thank you for everything you do for me.
