This week has been utterly surreal. Have a rather minor health issue that resulted in a doctor-insisted diet of clear liquid for four days. I’m on day 2 and I’M STARVING!!
Pros: Lost 7lbs in 2 days. No other pro I can think of. Cons: hungry; unpleasant side effects; bellydance is completely exhausing; going out to dinner with old friends we haven’t seen for years is uncomfortable when all I could eat was cranberry juice. Two more days…two more days…
This week (with the insidious help of Facebook) has been the week of ghosts resurfacing. Wow. An old friend from high school (I didn’t keep in touch with anyone from high school over the years) found me on FB, even with my married name. I haven’t posted my maiden name, as I wasn’t close to many in high school and don’t really care what’s going on in their lives now, however this girl was one I regretted losing touch with when she left college. Ten years later…good god, it’s been ten years…she tracks me down after apparently getting my married name from my Mom a couple of years ago. Weird, in a most excellent way.
So I’ve spent some time today sifting through memories in the brainpan, some good, some not so much. I don’t wish I could go back and do things over, so I guess that means I don’t have too many regrets, and that’s something.
