What hiatus?

So, after the meeting with the friend after seven years?

Yeah, after about an 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.


  1. Well, I'm glad to hear it went well. Like you said, no one knows how it will turn out or if it will last - but at least you gave it a try.

    Good job.

  2. Thats so great. I seemed to have lost a lot of my friends. I hope one day they will come back into my life

  3. I recently got back in with an old friend and due to our 'logistics' we are taking things very slow. It's great! I think if we were close by we would hop into things to quickly and it would not be good.

    I look forward to the day that I'm home and we know where everything is in each others kitchen!

    Have fun with it!!

  4. That's a great start. Hopefully she appreciates the second chance as much as you do. (And I know what you mean about the almost-5-year-old showing off. Sigh.) I've tried to post this comment about 8 times now. The internet hates me.

  5. I had a get together with a friend who I hadn't seen in forever. We had ended our friendship kind of badly and yet after having kids we both seemed to just chalk it up to being young. We are good friends again now. It is awesome.

    So glad you meeting went well. :)

  6. I lost contact with my bestest friend ever. We finally found each other again and came together after 12 years, right before my mom died. She has been a huge part of my life since and I hers. She even went as far as to write and read apology letters to me and my mom. Long story how we weren't together anymore, but the apology was more than we could ask for.

  7. That's great! Good for you. I hope it all works out.

  8. I hope that it works out.
    I am still friends with my bff from highschool, but there are others that I wish I had kept in contact with. Sometimes I think that I should just call or email, but I am just not brave enough....

  9. enjoy! enjoy! enjoy!
    that is my advice.

  10. Here from Burfica's blog
    I have some good friends that we will lose contact then one day outta the blue will call and it's like it has only been a day.
    Enjoy the blessings of reconnecting with your friend.

  11. I understand the guarded part, I would be too. But there is something really great about connecting with people that know you.

  12. I'm so glad it went well! It seems like I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop, too...but I am trying so hard to get out of that mindset, since I do believe in the laws of attraction, and don't want to inadvertently bring negativity to myself.

    I hope the future meetups all go at least as well! It may take time to really build the friendship back up again, even though you both seem ready to do just that. I know it's easier said than done, but just try to relax and enjoy it :)

  13. Isn't that weird how when you reconnect to friends lost, for whatever reason, you always wonder will it last this time?

    Been having a lot of that lately - some just on Facebook.

  14. Glad the first visit went well. Would love to hear more about the 5 vs. 2 show-off debate. I have that dynamic here, but add in the 7 y/o and the 5 looks like a comedian...

  15. Just checking in. Hope y'all are doing well.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  16. Hi....I wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!:)
    I hope that you have a lovely holiday season.
    God Bless,

  17. That's really cool. People who really know you and love you anyway are hard to come by. Good for you!

  18. Wonderful! I hope it continues to go well. Good friends are the best.

  19. Just checking in. Hope y'all are doing well.

  20. Just thought I'd drop by and see how things are. Hope you are well!

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  21. I hope your new old friendship does work out.

  22. Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family! I haven't heard from you in a while; hope all is well up your way!
