So it made me decide that I will schedule in time with friends, otherwise... it will not happen. And I will make it happen --- unless they have something come up. That is my goal this year... reconnect with old friends, make new friends and just keep building on all of my relationships. Even with family.
Which lead me to being able to meet up with two of my other close friends. We used to all work together back in 2003 - 2004. So I asked them why not meet up and hang out! We went to Chuy's Mexican restaurant and I ordered the Southwestern plate... which is chicken enchiladas with a fried over medium egg on it. I ate like 4 bites, but it was gooodddd! It was nice finally seeing their faces in person and catching up on whats happening in each other's life. I know Facebook was meant to connect us, but I feel like it keeps people a part more than bringing them together. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy being on Facebook but its definitely not the same as spending time with good friends or family.

This also brings up how badly I want to move into a house (we live in a four bedroom apartment). I really want to be able to throw gatherings and spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy throwing parties and decorating. Its just hard to do in an apartment... so that is another factor.
I do admit that I've kind of pushed my other friendships over with building my friendship with my best friend Crystal. And life has gotten in the way a lot. Hopefully, with my own effort --- my other friends will step up too.
Just some thoughts I've had recently...
