My Friends

Yes, I am a slacker.

I haven't posted lately, and I haven't been too good about dieting either.  I have had some personal things going on the last week or so and I just haven't been motivated to do much of anything.  After this weekend the craziness that has bogged me down will hopefully be past and I will get back to it.  I had a great first week, since then I have put back on two pounds.  Not thrilled but glad it is not the full six that I lost. 

This week I have been thinking about my friends.  I am very thankful for all of you.  My closest friends have been my friend since my school days.  Some of you have met me along the way and I am very glad for it.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  Recently, the Topeka High School building caught on fire.  My heart immediately sank.  Not just because the school is a local historical treasure, but in many ways it is a home for me, it is where the best friendships I have were formed.  Most of us met before in middle school, but at THS, that is where we made a bond.  I am closer to my friends than I am with my own family.  They are my family.  I stay in touch with all of my friends from school with social media.  Only recently have I started making the effort to see them in the real world.  Fear of rejection, judgement and so on kept me secluded.  Since I have started this blog, I have been making more plans with friends to meet for a meal (Thanks Kay, Pat and Alissa!), for a walk (I promise I will Krista!) or just to hang out, (Neffer this will happen more if I can help it!).  Some of you may know I have a group on facebook called The Topeka History Geeks, they have been asking to schedule a meet & greet for a long time now.  I have told them to go ahead but have never done much to make it happen.  Today I scheduled two events for the group.  I am hoping to attend both if my schedule allows.  If I do not get out into the world and involve myself, the opportunity to do so will pass me by.  So thank you to everyone who is so eager to get me out with them.  I will try my best to behave appropriately and not embarrass you.  Who am I kidding?  Acting a fool is part of who I am!  :)
