I'm new here, but have been following this thread, hoping for the best for you. Did you end up spending New Year's Eve with him?
Happy New Year.
Happy New Year to you, too. And no, I spent NYE at home alone, pretty much. He went to a party (didn't get drunk, I'm proud to say) and wanted to invite me, but it was out HIS way so it would have made more sense for me to drive out to his house, which involves freeways and things I can't deal with again post-accident just yet. So I declined, stayed home, and stayed up long enough to ring in the New Year and post some REALLY long analyses of Harry Potter to my LiveJournal.
I'm back at work tomorrow morning, bright and early (after 4.5 months, eek!), so I have to go to bed here in a bit, but he did call me this afternoon, and we talked a little bit.
I had promised to call him when I got in this evening, but he's still pretty miserable from the cold that will not go away, so we cut it short and he said call him tomorrow, but the last 2 words out of his groggy, sleepy mouth were, "Love you."
So we're getting somewhere. I've no idea where. But...somewhere.
