Whoops! Forgot to post yesterday. Got too absorbed in my book and then it was time for bed.
Today was good, though! I went to work, sat there being very bored for several hours, and then came home. Read for a while, went to the chiropractors office, went home and read a little more (I have to finish the book and return it so other people in the book club can read it before next Saturday’s meeting), before going out to dinner with a girl I met at the book club. Actually, she’s the one working at the library in charge of the book club.
Meeting friends is hard and awkward, but by gum, I’m working hard at it! We went to a Baja Mexican place and sat and chatted for a long time, and then walked to Wendy’s for frosties before calling it a night. It was fun! It was sometimes awkward, but that’s what happens when you have dinner with some you don’t know very well, so you don’t know what to talk about. I’m hopeful that we can hang out again sometime . . . before she ends up getting the job she’s hoping to find closer to her family and moves out of state. Because I can’t object to her wanting to be closer to her family, but it’d be nice to have someone to chat with now and then who understands the books and movies that I enjoy and all of that.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun. Now I’m back home and curling back up with this book for the rest of my evening. Because this is what I do — moments of bravery and stepping out of my box, followed by doing the same, routine, sitting-still-and-reading-for-hours thing that I can do so well. 🙂 It’s a great life.
