I don't get it.

For the second time in as many weeks, someone last night told me that they shy away from doing things with me.....because......

.....wait for it.....

.....I'm too exciting.


Too exciting??

I didn't know how to take it the first time......and now, after hearing it again, I'm floored.

During the week, I go to work, come home, go to work, come home.....maybe you can throw a quartet rehearsal in there once and a while.....but for the most part....boring.

Gotta make the donuts boring.

Ask Mot, the TV is my friend. We are buddies. In fact, I haven't seen my buddy since last Friday am, and I'm suffering from withdrawals. :-)

I write about my weekends, well.....because I had to start reminding myself that I'm not a friendless slug. Yes, we do go places and do things....and yes, we do these things with other people. And, I wanted to be able to look back and remember some of it.

I have a tendency to get very down on myself, bummed out.....because I feel very separated from friends and family sometimes.

Last night my sister and I had a heart to heart. She feels separated from the family too. (I'm thinking it must be a normal thing.)

But she keeps her life so full. Works long (and sometimes strange) hours, has two kids with buckets of activities they participate in.

So, do I feel separated from family for the same reason?

Now maybe, but not before.

I felt the separation before I was busy, before I started trying to find other things to do on the weekends. One too many times sitting on the couch, waiting for my sister to show up....late....as usual. Because she has tons of stuff going on, and can squeeze some sister time in between the herp show that morning and swim lessons that evening.

So yeah, I made a point of filling my life (or at least my weekends) with stuff. I decided to take life by the horns, and actually do something with it. No more sitting around, watching life pass me by.

And because of this, people shy away from asking me to do things??

I still don't know what to think.

Well, anyway..................enough of that. I just had to get it off my chest. Don't ranting for the day, I promise!!!! :-)

My next "exciting" weekend update will get posted soon. I haven't been home to work on it, and they are actually making me work here at work these days.

How dare they!!! :-)

Have a great Tuesday everybody!!!!!!!! :-) :-) :-) :-)

I agree with Badass. They must be jealous and maybe they think they're too boring for you!

Nej said...

@ 3699 - which is really funny....because boring is my middle name. I told them that they need to look for the exciting in their lives...and write it down if they need to. It's what I started doing, and it worked.

Just going to the grocery store can be one heck of a story....if you pay attention. :-)
