Let’s see? “How’s it going?” you ask. Pretty good. Pretty damn good. I haven’t cleaned out a single cupboard yet or reduced a single material possession, but I haven’t brought any in either. And, so far, my friends still love me. Of course, I haven’t dissed them online yet either. Kidding! I love you guys!
This affects them too. I used to be the happy recipient of several delightful invitations weekly. For breakfast, for lunch, for drinks. Oh, and for shopping! I’d say for coffee, but I think Glenn and Chloe have that whole subject handled. (Seriously, enough already! Lol!) I received this text today from one of my best friends, “K, not being able to text you for lunch is fucking boring!” I have to admit, I almost caved. What was worse was the pregnant pause afterwards when I have to figure she was waiting for me to cave. I didn’t – so I guess that’s success of sorts. *sob*
Now, this year isn’t about not having any fun. Hell, I plan to have plenty. I’m just going to tone it back. And, yes, it’s possible the local pub might close. And, for that, I’m very sorry. They are a super nice family. Maybe I should have warned them!
In fact, I intend to have plenty of “austere” fun tomorrow at another friend’s house. It being New Year’s Resolution time of the year helps me out a bit in that I am not the only “difficult” friend. Some are on diets (arg…. that’d be me too….), some aren’t drinking (*shudder* of course, now it’s a small glass of wine or a *gak* light beer…), others are busy with workout schedules or creative endeavours. However, we are getting together tomorrow to celebrate the New Year. I can hardly wait.
So, the next time you hear from me (Monday), there will a) be less of me, b) I will have been having some modified fun with my friends (they’ll get used to it eventually….), and c) I will have reduced some stuff. I know exactly what to do with it too….. I’ll put it in the garage!!!
Talk to you Monday! Have a great weekend!!!
