hehehe I’m liking the metaphors today. Yesterday, I burned a bridge. There is no way in hell Jenn will ever want to be friends with me after what I wrote yesterday. Now I’m going to discuss tearing down a wall I had built!!
I met K first in February. (Well, I’ve known her for like 12 years, but saw her for the first time in February). It took me until the middle of April to see her again. From that point on I see her a minimum of once a week. I am constantly on the phone with her either talking or texting. A few weeks ago I changed my relationship status on Facebook to “In A Relationship”.
Lyz made a comment. K asked when she was going to meet CL (we are all holding off on her meeting AD)
A few weeks ago, after the 3rd time I panicked right before getting on the turnpike because I had no cash on me, I signed up for EZPass.
Lyz made a statement. K stated she really wanted to meet the people that I talk non-stop about.
Last week, Lyz and I were laying on her bed chatting and I was texting K. Lyz told me to text K and tell her that it isn’t Lyz dragging her feet about meeting K.
The next night K brought up meeting Lyz again.
I told them both that for each time they brought it up I was going to make them wait another week.
Tuesday K and I were talking about when we could get together. She has been off from work this week due to an injury so we came to the conclusion that we both had Thursday night free. She said she would come here.
I realized this would be a great way to finally introduce Lyz and K. Chris would be working, no big deal. K was afraid to meet Chris anyway. Worried he was going to give her the “If you hurt my friend” speech. This is so not Chris’s style. He is more of the style to give you a speech after you’ve hurt me. For example telling someone that “When you cheat, you are supposed to cheat up, you failed.” I would be able to introduce Lyz and K when K dropped me off after our date. That way the girls would be in bed.
So, I decided in my head that K and Lyz would meet.
Wednesday I worried in my head that they wouldn’t like each other. I spent all day worrying in my head, then I decided to let it go. I moved on to worrying about what the heck I was going to wear. I mean, this was like a real live date!!
I laughed Thursday afternoon, when K texted me panicking about what she was going to wear. I posted that on facebook and instantly Lyz replied “Crap i didnt even think of that…. Hmm what should I wear???”
So…K picked me up. I took her up to show her my room. Halfway up the stairs I remembered that I had spent some time Wednesday afternoon reorganizing things, so my room was slightly trashed. Oh-well!! After the tour we went out to dinner and had a great time chatting. It is so comfortable spending time with her. I really do enjoy it. We had planned on seeing a movie, but it got to be a little late, and I had to make sure we had time for K and Lyz to meet! So we headed to the outlet malls to do some shopping. She is so much fun to shop with!! She loves to watch me try on clothes, she loves to look at kitchen gadgets with me, and she doesn’t get grumpy when we’ve been shopping for more than 17 minutes!!!
Then it was time to head home. We thought about stopping at Sonic to bring Lyz home a treat, but I know her nutritionist would hunt me down and shoot me, so we decided not to. As we turned the corner I texted Lyz to say we were there, and check that the girls were asleep. I told K hey look!! Joni is still here, you can meet her….um…that isn’t Joni’s car.
Nope. There in the driveway was the police cruiser. Chris was home for lunch. K looked over at me with a slightly pale look. I laughed and reminded her that there is nothing to worry about. Chris isn’t really Mr. Socialite, he won’t really say more than Hi and nice to meet you. He is also eating dinner, so really, relax!!!
I walked up to the door, and for some reason, I knocked. I know, I’m a dork. Lyz cracked the door and then chased Riley-Muffin back into the kitchen. K and I followed. Then it happened. I introduced K to Lyz, Lyz to K. Then Lyz said “This is Chris”. He looked up from his sandwich and waved and then stood up (All 6’4″ of him in full uniform complete with taser, asp and gun) and shook K’s hand. He said nice to finally meet you, and then went back to his dinner.
Us three girls chatted for a bit in the kitchen and then moved out onto the deck. We chatted for about 2 hours. It was nice. It was more than nice. It was wonderful. Every so often K would reach over and rub my arm or my back, or hold my hand for a minute, just to make sure that I was calm. It reassured me that she liked my Lyz. Once or twice I caught Lyz’s eye and I could tell she had her real smile on, she wasn’t just being nice.
When I walked K out to her car I grabbed her face and said well??????? K said “How can I not like her…you two were totally cut from the same mold. You are the same person!!” I laughed and said “So, don’t you pity poor Chris for having to live with two of me?”
I ran upstairs and hopped into bed with Lyz. Well?????? “Why did you think I wouldn’t like her?? I think she’s great!” I let out air that I didn’t know I had been holding inside of me. I sat with Lyz chatting for awhile when we looked at the clock. Somehow it had become 12:30 in the morning! I kissed her goodnight and headed over to my room. I laid in bed until almost 2am just smiling.
My dear darling readers. I love my life. And after Thursday night, I can see that it is only going to get better from here!!!!
