Well, I was going to talk about the good stuff that happened last week. Remember at the VERY beginning of this little LJ 3 years ago (actually exactly 3 years in 14 minutes.... woot!) I mentioned about a guy I dated and introduced him to a group of friends, one of which he married shortly after?
I do admit, I was snooping about. Jake had mentioned that he had checked out their RPG website that they run, and curiosity got the better of me. I noticed that his wife's name on their forums was faewren
, and I was wondering how they were doing since I haven't heard much connection from them in a loooooooong while.
I finally got up the nerve to post a comment, and the reaction I got was, to be quite honest, very surprising. She sounded very happy to hear from me. We chit-chatted back and forth through each other's LJ for awhile, and finally decided that we should hang out for a bit. There were some hurt feelings on both sides, and some major closure needed to happen, or I would still be hearing the hub talking about the past, and no moving forward would happen.
I went over there last week and at first things were a bit, nervous and quiet, but after getting "hit on" by her 1 year old son, things just kind of snowballed from there, and we started talking about our hobbies (knitting/cross-stitching/gaming/etc.), and soon we realized that we were fast becoming great friends!
Now that we've finally put a crack in this dam, more talking and trading began to leak through. Jake came over with me today and the four of us were able to get together and play some games. It was so great to see smiles on everyone's face! I am so amazed how things turn out.
Her son also remembered me, and that I have a very comfy chest area. The rest of the day was spent with him running up to me, asking to be held, then he would either lie his head down on my chest, or squeeze one of my breasts to make sure they were there, smile and run off. I continued to remind him that it's a good thing he doesn't know better yet, or my hubby would get jealous.
I'm just a sucker for a cute face.
*sigh* It's just good to watch My husband and his past friend to start to patch things up. We're even planning a Pirates party when the third movie comes out! *bouncebouncebounce*
AND! My settlement check came in finally! We had to drive down to Provo to get it, but it was well worth it. I was blown away by the amount that we got, much more than what we first were told to anticipate, but it's enough to where I've printed out a little piece of paper that frees me from being the grunt at work and doing nothing but taking upset callers in two weeks.
AND! (part two) The Hub is GRADUATED! W00T!!!!! I am so proud of him, and I hope I can follow in his footsteps in the next couple of quarters.
I am just so happy and amazed as to how life has unraveled these past few weeks (er... ignoring last weekends "event"). Even burned bridges can be rebuilt, and I think this one has been upgraded to flame-retardant ^_^
