Nostalgia…otherwise known as “getting old”

I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately.  I’m not sure if it’s the time of year or if I’m just getting old, but apparently others are feeling nostalgic as well.  Today I heard from an old fling/good friend that I hadn’t heard from in at least a year.  Out of the blue he sent me a message saying “miss you.”  It instantly brought me back to all the great times we had together and all the laughing we used to do.  I miss him too.  So I told him so.  Fast forward to 20 minutes later and I had invited him to come visit.  Not like that, y’all.  Just as friends, though he may think otherwise.

Also, today my oldest friend is coming over to hang out.  He and his wife live in the same state as me, but I haven’t seen them in almost a year.  We have both been super busy this year and haven’t figured out a time to get together until today.  It feels like old home week or something.

It seems like the older I get, the more I value friendships and miss some of the amazing people from my past.  I never thought I would want to go to my high school reunion.  In fact, I was positive I would NEVER be caught dead there.  But now I find myself kind of looking forward to my 10 year reunion in June.  Sure, there are some assholes I do not want to have to interact with….Rat Bastard being at the top of the list.  But there are so many people I have lost touch with who were great friends and awesome people.

I decided that I am going to begin sending holiday cards to all the people I love, but may not be in touch with.  Growing up, my parents stayed in touch with a lot of people this way and it seemed to work well.  I’m going to give it a try.

You know you are getting old when you start behaving like your parents….
