Today is going to be an interesting day. Remember that afghan I made for an old friend? In case you forgot, it's this one:
Said old friend is coming today to pick it up. He lives about an hour or so away. Now in all truthfulness, said old friend is actually my very first boyfriend. I adored him, but once we were together outside of high school, he got mixed up in alcohol and drugs, and broke my heart. I haven't seen him in 25+ years. He contacted me on Facebook about a year ago, seeking me out. Apparently he had been trying to locate me for quite awhile. He got clean and sober 6 years ago, and I was the only one he hadn't been able to apologize to, and make amends with. He told me that it really bothered him, the hell he put me through when we were 18 and 20 (he was younger...yep cougar I was lol).
And you know what.....I believe him 100%, and know that he is sincere in his apology. When he wasn't drinking or high, he was an amazing person, with a heart of gold. I am so proud of him for straightening his life out. I can't wait to see him today, and get to reminisce a bit. And before you go there......he got married last November, so no, there is no inkling of a romance. Just good friends who get to catch up.
And then to add to the day, it was just put online in our local newspaper's website, and then broadcast over the local radio station, that starting at 9am, about 10 towns will be purposely shut off from their electric for repairs. Who do you think lives in one of those towns? Yep, little 'ol me! Fun fun! Just hope they don't keep it off all day.
Have a great day!
