Also in the past couple of weeks I have been making a conscious effort to be less slack and catch up with friends. So, this week I am having coffee with several friends from my old work, plus lunch with a friend and her nearly 5 month baby.
Apparently I’m not the only one making this effort as I just had an email saying that 3 of my closest friends from high school want to have dinner with K and I soon. It’s 10 years since I’ve seen 2 of them, and not much less for the third so that should be great (ignoring the fact that I’m pretty sure one of them stopped talking to me because I’m gay – I’m hoping we’ve all got past that now, and that the dinner invitation specifically to both of us is an indication that she has grown up).
I’ve also decided that, while I used to like my alone time when K was away on camps, I really don’t now. Don’t get me wrong, I always missed her and couldn’t wait for her to get home again, but part of me appreciated a bit of space too (I have always been a bit of a loner like that – used to love when my parents went out and I had the house to myself, not to throw a wild party but just to have my time alone). Now, I just miss her, and four days two weeks in a row is a long time for us.
Oh yeah, and the puppy stole my control key off my laptop.
