I could do the standard list of this for which I am thankful: my health, my good fortune to have been born in SF, my education, my two delightful sons, my job, my parents, etc. Of course, I am thankful for that.
I'm now also thankful that T is being such an un-friend that leaving him behind is easier. He barely holds a conversation with me, he leaves questions asked unanswered, he says he will do things and doesn't (like the yogurt container tops and the 13 mirrors scan), he leaves conversations mid-stream and logs off without saying a good night. Formerly when asked about giving *hugs*, he responded with, "it's just a hug" and yet I haven't gotten one in a month. What the heck happened? I'm noticing that he's not even a friend anymore. A friend would say that he's happy my son did well. A friend would want to see my new glasses. A friend would bother to say g'night. A friend would say Good job! when seeing how my jeans fit now. A friend would return my stuff to me, like my DVD and bathrobe. If you think its possible to be friends, T, then act like one.
1 pm update: Well, nice surprise. T called and we had a nice conversation. I'm pleased, as the things that I liked about him are still there and I would enjoy him as a friend.
Also: got our contractor contract! I need to read it and sign, but *finally* progress!!
And!! I got a great comment on my final project in the last class. The instructor even said "wow!". I was very honored.
