Last night I was here:
Yes, that is 4th row behind the scorer's table at the greatest venue in all of sports. And let me tell you, those seats are incredible. You can hear the refs talking to the coaches and players. The thud made by the players as they crash to the floor is quite impressive.
So that was last night. Other evenings have been taken up with other things. Movies with friends. Dinner with J every Tuesday, then knitting club. Martinis and usually dinner every Thursday. Drinks with K or T. Basketball games with other friends. Basically, I haven't had a day free from social obligation in I don't know how long. My life has become a social whirlwind.
The thing is, though, I'm not inventing reasons to be away from home. These are all good friends. It turns out I hadn't been nurturing friendships as much as I should have been over the past few years. I had developed that comfortable relationship thing where I had friends but didn't often make time for them. So now I am building up many of those friendships that I had let languish over the years. And I've also made some new friends, something I hadn't done in years.
There is a part of me that is getting tired of rarely having a night to myself at home. Dishes and laundry aren't getting done much. And obviously blogging hasn't been a priority. But there is another part of me that is a little afraid for the merry-go-round to stop. I'm not sure that I will know what to do with myself then. When the music stops, the rest is...I don't know what.*. So for now, let the whirlwind continue. And if you're a local friend, book me in advance because my calendar has been filling up quickly.
I know some of you want to ask if I've been dating any. The simple answer is yes. But the honest answer is that I haven't found anyone worth mentioning. And I'm not willing to settle for anyone who isn't truly worthy of my time. I've wasted a lot of time on someone who wasn't and I was the one who got burned from that. So I'm not going to make that mistake again.
I do have things i want to blog about, though, don't give up on me if you come here for my insights on law, politics, or anything else. Now that I have the iPad, I can blog from wherever the mood strikes.
