Making Plans for the Future

August 11th

Dear Journal,

Oh, it has definitely been a while since I’ve written anything in my journal, however, things have been a bit busy – what with the farm, working for the company as well as trying to spend more time with Kae.  Yeah, we’ve had our ups and downs, however, I think that we have finally come to a compromise that might work out better for the two of us.

I don’t travel to Stormwind as often as I was there for a while and I do have to admit that it is a lot easier to haul a large shipment down there as it is to haul a little one.  Of course, I’ve found some of the other employees up here in Pandaria and that makes it easy to put my shipments with theirs to Stormwind or they can put theirs with mine.  It all works out and the money is distributed correctly by our trusty Magdamia.

Oh yes, Kae and I did go to the Faire and I will admit that we had more fun this time than we have in quite a while. I think we are both more relaxed now that we’ve resolved some of our other issues and we can get back to enjoying each other’s company too.  I know there was a time period there when I just didn’t want to even come back to the farm sometimes.  I am assuming that Kae felt the same way too sometimes because we weren’t getting along all that well there for a while.   I know that we both know how to verbally battle, although, I will admit that I have never gone after Kae in a fit of temper to do her physical harm.

We have been able to spend some time with my Mom and my Dad in the last couple of weeks since they are staying here in Pandaria for a while.  I know that Kae always gets this weird look on her face when she looks at my Dad and I often wonder what it is that she is thinking.  Sure, he’s a nice looking man for a Blood Elf and the women that I have seen come up and talk to him are always flirting shamelessly, however, he loves my Mom and I think that he knows better than to do anything up here where I might find out about it.  I love the man as my Father but there are times when I wonder what he is thinking too.

Kae said something the other day that kind of distressed me because it has to do with my appearance.  I have used lenses for quite a while to hide the green in my eyes, however, in the last few years, I haven’t done it as much.  I figure that if people see the green, they might think that it is something in the surroundings that we might be in that is being reflected in my eyes.  What distressed me is that she said that as I am aging, the green is starting to be more predominate in my eyes.  That’s not a good thing for me because I like to go to Stormwind, Darnassus and anywhere anyone might want to go that is in the Alliance.   I think that I will ask some of my friends that know what I am, a man of mixed heritage, and see if they share her opinion.  If the green is showing more, I’ll have to be more cautious about things or see if I can find something other than those lenses to cover them.

I am also sitting here and looking at the fact that Kae and I have been together coming up on two years – sometimes it doesn’t seem that long and sometimes it seems much longer.  I guess most couples feel that way and I did mention it to my Mother and she just smiled and said that it was normal to feel that way.  She’s much better at coping with things than I am, I tend to be a little hotheaded at times and that has caused Kae and I to have some problems.  I also get a little bit stubborn, which I know I inherited it from both of my parents on that one. Anyway, I am just sitting here thinking that we ought to do something special to celebrate how long we’ve been together although it isn’t that long when you think about the years that we have facing us now.  Should I take her to Northrend and show her some of the places that I like up there and even go to Dalaran and eat at that fancy restaurant or should we go to Outland and go camping?  There are so many places that I would like to take that I know that she hasn’t experienced yet with her tenure in the Sentinels.  She’s only gone where she’s been assigned and I think a large part of that is due to the fact that she didn’t have money to travel like I did as I got older.  I’m sure that I will figure something out.

Kal
