So, after the meeting with the friend after seven years?
Yeah, after about an hour...it was like we saw each other last week. Not seven years ago.
The kids got along great, the moms chatted and caught up. We had lunch.
I found out that when you are showing off at two, you're adorable and when you are showing off at almost five...not so much.
We really did have fun. Her family is good, we shared pictures and happenings.
We planned to see each other next week again. It was nice.
Turns out she's not all that far from me so get-together's are not only possible but totally easy to do.
So yeah, so far so good. Forgive me for being guarded but this is still new here and I really don't know what to expect. It all happened so fast. One minute she's gone for good, the next I'm on her couch eating a bagel...She knows more about me from the past than anyone other than K (who moved far, far away) So it's nice to reconnect to that. I know more about her the same way. So having her back in my life would really be a treat for me. Especially since you are all aware of my IRL friend situation, or lack thereof...
I harbor no hard feelings toward her, it seems she feels the same. I look forward to catching up. But you know me...Always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
As of right now, I am grateful for the reunion that we had. I look forward to other shared moments. I hope that we can remain friends and share the rest of our lives together.
I am happy we found each other again and I am happy it feels like 'old times' all over again.
But I would not be all that surprised if it just for some reason, didn't work out. Ya know?
I'll keep you all posted. Promise.
