Sunday Memories

Craig Call and I had dinner last night. He picked me up at four from my stake conference and we headed up north to the town of Salt Lake.

On Friday we had been texting while he was at work. I asked him what his plans were for the three day weekend and he said that his mom was coming into town, so he was going to see her and have some family time. I said that it must be nice to have his mom in town since he is from Arizona and he doesn't get to see her that often, like I do being from Utah and working in the same building as my mother. He agreed. Then I got asked the question. haha He simply said, ":) Do you want to meet my family?"

Oh wow. I was not expecting that. We are not even officially dating. We just really like each other and want to take things one day at a time, and maybe officially date down the road. So, that question kind of threw me off guard. I simply answered with a, "Sure. If you want me to, I would love to." Which I would love too and did yesterday. I went up to his Grandpa Scott's house for dinner and met his mom. His Grandpa was not feeling well so he did not join us. They did invite me to go up in March to their big family home evening they have up at his (Grandpa Scott's) house. I am excited for that. Craig really wanted him to meet me I think since he asked a few times if he really wasn't feeling that well to even come and say hi. He wasn't but it is alright. I just hope he gets to feeling better.

I learned a lot about Craig last night. Craig and his family that is. Craig's mother is Elder Scott's daughter, but she is not Craig's biological mother. His biological mother got in a car accident when Craig was four and passed away six days later. Craig was in the car. Craig's dad remarried about three years later, after some enlightening things happened to him. So I met his step mother who raised him. I love her. She was so open and welcoming to me. I did not feel out of place at all. We talked about his first mother a lot as well. I was glad to get to know about her as well. She danced too. So did Craig's Grandma Scott.

After dinner, which was just Craig, his mom, and I, we took some food over to his Grandma Foux's house (Craig's 1st mom's mom). She is 88 years old and was so incredible. I found out that she was from Spanish Fork. So we had a good conversation about a lot of things. She recognized the Ashby name Dad. haha I didn't really know who she would know or who would have been around when she was living there but she recognized the name. We stayed and visited her for a few hours and then left to go and drop by his sister Camille's.

Camille is married and has one little boy who is obsessed with the movie Up. Cutest thing ever from what they told me about him and the pictures I saw. He was asleep by the time we got there so I didn't get to meet him. He is 1 1/2 years old. I would love to actually interact with him. Camille is expecting a girl in March, the end of March though. I told her about Gillian expecting in March as well with a little girl and she got excited for her. Her husband is very nice and personable as well.

I am glad I got to meet them. I am thankful I got to spend a day with Craig to get to know him better. I think I like him a lot. In the long run, I don't know what is going to happen. However, life is about having experiences and learning from them. This is a very different experience that I am having, and I am learning a lot from it. It is so different than what I had with Gabe and/or Spencer. He treats me like an equal, not like I am a child. I treat him like an equal. I don't feel like I have to stoop down to his level. It is a nice feeling. I love Sunday's. Some more than others, but I love them nonetheless. This Sunday will be with me in my memories for a very long time.

{Wish I had a picture to show you of Craig and I. I will have to work on that.}

Dating or not dating

a. An engagement to go out socially with another person, often out of romantic interest.
b. One's companion on such an outing.

Dating. Why does it have to be so complicated? Why can't people just date without questions? Without hesitation? My mother asked me these questions. I now ask the same questions. Why can't the questions come afterwards? 

Schooling to me is a great relationship. I am pretty happy with it right now. I love the relationship I am in. School and I get along with each other very very well. That is something I can live with.

I would love to date someone right now but I am done looking for it. Done. I can wait for things to fall into place. However, I do go on dates every now and then. I have been making steps to date, but whatever happens in the end of the whole dating scene will end up with me married... eventually.

So in conclusion... 
To dating -stop being complicated already.
