Happy Friday indeed, yay for the weekend, even though it is going to be full of kid stuff..lol
I am sure that a club with live music is not really condusive to a happy head the next day, especially if you already have trouble with your hearing...ouch....but hey...as u say, take the good with the bad and it is way more good than it is bad.
Don't feel bad for having a few drinks last night, it is not what you usually do and it is more than fine to let your hair down and relax once in awhile. You know you have not turned to alcohol to get through this so that you had a few drinks really is nothing to be concerned with, well I don't think so anyway.
That is really nice that you did step up and take the higher road when office girl gave you the death stare, one day you may feel strong enough to give her that hug and say exactly that to her..."it would be awesome if we could move on from what ever that was and be friends?" All you can do is try and you never know, it may be all it takes to break the ice.
I am 100% sure your ex is going through the phase of not knowing what she had til it is gone, and that is one of the sad things about a break up is that sometimes we dont get the chance to "fix" what was wrong and make a mense..however that takes awareness and the preparedness for personal growth, not to mention taking the ownership of your part in the break up and the problems you brought to the relationship, I don't think she is quite there yet....
You are so right in that looking after each other is the bare minimum, the fact that is all she had to bring up is in itself alarming. The role of a relationship is to encourage and to support and to build the other person up and to want them to succeed, anyway ..you know all this stuff I am ranting now...lol
You are so very kind to see her on the weekend and yes, please don't tolerate any more of her bad behavior as it just leaves you feeling bad about yourself. At least you will have the rehearsals to do that will make you happy, how cool that you are in the orchestra for a theatre production, that is amazing, well done!!
I am so happy to hear that you had a great lunch and that coffee girl is making you feel good and that you had a laugh, so very important and so good to hear, awesome.
Not long now til home time and then switch hats to mum....lol...with the questions of what is to eat and I am bored....lol...
Have an awesome weekend Aaron
