Today was definitely one of the best days I've had in a long time. I spent 2 1/2 hours with Sara for lunch. She held my hand as we walked through the park :) We went there as a group, but Sara and I had some time together alone when the others went back to work early. She seems to be getting much closer to me than ever before. If this is as good as it gets, it's good enough :)

I have finally something to thank AOL for, and that is AIM. I have been able to communicate with Sara so much more now that I can talk with her online. It's basically the reason we all got together for lunch, and we have a great schedule planned for friday and saturday night.

TC wrote to me on AIM this morning that she was upset that her boyfriend hadn't called her yet, but just as she was chatting with me and I was trying to give her some words of encouragement, he called and she had a chance to talk with him just before she left for Paris.

I went to the gym tonight, full of energy. I burned 790 calories over 3.75 miles in an hour. I didn't do much running tonight though. Afterwards, I caught Sara online again and we talked for a bit. I asked her if she wanted to go to a music concert and she seemed interested until she realized that all the good seats were taken, and she figured she should probably spend the day studying anyway. I think she really wanted to go though.

Sara, CR, and I conspired to buy Ann a dress from eBay that she had been mentioning over and over again. Ann said that she didn't want to bid on it because she just spent a bunch of money, but she kept mentioning it and wondering about it. I suggested that we buy it for her and give it to her at the end of the month when we go to Orlando. At first the dress was only about $24, but when I went to bid $50 for it, it went to $51, so I bid $60 and it sold at $56. It's a very attractive dress; I bet it'll make her happy :)

Anyway, it was a great day. Not much done at work, but that's pretty typical lately. I love how things are going with Sara. Even if I'm on the boundary of how far we can go together, I'm pretty happy where we are now. In some ways I'd like to be further along, but that would bring some pressure with it that's just not there now, so this works out very well.
