6:00 AM: 3.2-Mile Run – COMPLETED
Yesterday, I downed a glass of Sangria at my MIL’s before heading out to dinner with my brother & girlfriend. Lili was well-behaved for awhile before she started to get out of control. The girl has no patience. I’m wondering if that’s a trait from me or my husband. I think it’s actually a trait she’s inherited from me though. Pedro’s pretty patient. Well he has to be since he’s married to me. HA. I have to say, he handles me pretty well. And yet, I like to be difficult.
While we were eating, I noticed an ex-friend of mine walk in. We haven’t spoken since 2000 (well, except the one time we briefly ran into each other back in 2002). We used to be such great friends. Inseparable. It was ironic because my brother is going through a similar situation right now and he needed my opinion on it. So since she walked in and was sitting three booths down from us, I rehashed our story. I don’t regret not being friends with her anymore. I had to tell my brother that he’s still young (23 years old) and he’ll be going through struggles with friends for years and years to come. He won’t know his true friends until maybe in his 30s. And even then, you will still lose some friends. It’s a cycle. We all go through it.
I wouldn’t have been mean or nasty if we bumped into each other. Honestly, it was years ago and we’re both adults. I’m going to be 32-years old. I’m married with a baby. With her, I’m sure it’s close to same. It’s been 12 years. When we were leaving, we both noticed each other and gave eye-contact, but all I did was smile and walk out. She was with family and I was leaving with mine. I’ve thought about it — what if we talked again? I enjoyed her friendship very much. But at the same time, what for? We stopped being friends because we both changed. What’s so different now? So let’s leave it as it is.
Do you go through spats with close friends? I used to have a bunch of friends, and I kind of still do… but, I can count my close friends on one hand.
Now, onto another note, cleaning up time in our house is becoming less and less of a chore now that we’ve got the huge
play-pen jail cell. However, it drives me nuts to see clutter, even in her area…
Our little Miss At-ti-tude.
And guess who’s turning THREE in just a month???
She’s now 100% potty-trained. You can fully understand every single word that comes out of her mouth. She loves mani/pedis. She is the best. Why do they grow up so fast? Lili loves her big cousin. As soon as she saw her this morning, she started screaming and smiling at her. Awwwww…
Okay, well, the food shopping is done on my lunch break and I have all these foods I want to cook tonight. Let’s see how motivated I am to actually get it done. Do you ever have cooking plans and then decided to “order in” instead? I’m trying to move away from that bad habit.
