My two friends, Elisa and Nat (seen here in this karaoke post) and I spent our second Friday in a row together last night to celebrate the end of the damned New York State testing baloney. (All three of us are teachers.) We clanked wine glasses, and chanted "two more months"!
We talked about everything you see above, and that hummus was delicious. I found out we've all been having 'a week' and for each of us, last night was needed.
I found out over dinner last night that a few months ago my boyfriend called my friend Elisa and talked to her for 3+ hours about me. ? ? It kind of ticked me off because a lot of the things he said to her, I wish he had told me. Things I needed to hear from him, she knew, but I didn't. ? ?
I also found out a misunderstanding we had back in November 2012...NOVEMBER!...could have been avoided or mended if he had told me what he planned. He never did that day, back in November. I found out from my friend yesterday...ummm...5 MONTHS LATER...that he had planned something for us that never happened because of the miscommunication and misunderstanding that happened on that November night. ? ? I don't know.
Doesn't make sense to me, but whatever. I cried, but only after Elisa cried. Nat disclosed that she hasn't 'thought' so much in her life. Elisa and I welcomed her to 'the club' so to speak: the Over-Analyzers Not-So-Anonymous.
Our night winded down back at Elisa's place, and right before we left, us three were cozy under blankets on Elisa's couches.
I'm so grateful for these girls.
Over dinner, that's one big thing we talked about:
learning to be more in the moment,
and grateful for the good in everyday.
I'm grateful I have only a mild hangover this morning. ;)
Hope you all enjoy your Saturday.
