I guess he returned and his friends finally told him I called. He called me and we met up later that week. We lived 2 hours from each other so we spent most of our getting to know each other on the phone. Yes, the phone had a long spiral type cord and I had to stretch it to it's max to get some privacy to talk:) We really fell in love over the phone. I am quite a talker:)
I moved to his town a few months later to attend another college and we dated for 2 years before he proposed. (We did not live together! I rented a one room efficiency until I met my good buddy Kristi!) Mr. Schroeder and I have been together for 18 years now:) The funny thing is we now live in the Charlotte, NC area. We have two beautiful kiddos and he has never been to a Final 4 since:)
After all this time together I still feel so lucky to have found Mr. Schroeder. We totally balance each other. He is the realist and I am the dreamer. He is the responsible party & I am the risk taker. He is the protector and I am the protected.
Mr. Schroeder gave me a wonderful compliment once~ He said that I am just the right amount of CRAZY! I am pretty sure that is a good compliment right?
