So...Kory had been working on the gym in the basement and it is getting SOO close to being done. Close enough where I am thinking about starting to shop for stuff for it and find the best prices....We already have a treadmill and a bike, but we need to get weights and some machines for Kurt and Kory. And I would like to get a kickboxing bag. Kory put the doors up today, which we had custom made at Lowe's a while back this summer. They look so freaking kewl. I really should get a pic and post on here, but am too tired right now....
So, bummer the Tigers lost last night......:(. And annoying the game got cancelled tonight! We can't watch during the day, and that's when the make-up game is, tomorrow afternoon. Blah on rain. I guess it's raining everywhere these days.....
You know what's kinda annoying? People. I got an email tonight from a friend who needed to vent. And today, I was actually kinda feeling the way she was in her vent. I try not to let myself feel that way, because I have a new way of approaching life and friends these days. And for the most part, it works. So many of my friends have kids, careers, etc. and I understand why we don't talk all the time, or get to do dinner on a regular basis. This is fine, because I am insanely busy as well. And I know my real friends are there for me no matter what, and if I really needed them, they would drop everything to be by my side.
But, this approach I have, only works with people who are similar to me, who know how to communicate, who are not challenged with having relationships with others. Nothing annoys me more than soemone who "fakes" being your friend, for whatever reason. Who is there one minute, gone the next, and thinks they can just float back into your life whenever their other friends are not behaving properly, or they get sick of the other friends becasue their personality is so erratic they can only get along with someone for short periods of time before getting sick of them.
It annoys me, but at the same time, since I don't trust people like this whatsoever, I don't get all heartbroken about it. I just need to teach myself how to ignore this "annoyed" feeling, because frankly, I think "friends" like this actually "enjoy" my being annoyed. I don't express the feeling to them, but I think they secretly like the fact that they may be hurting my feelings or whatever. Thankfully, this person does not read my blog and thus, I can still post about this situation.
Anyway, enough with the vent. Just wanted the person who sent me the email earlier to know that I get how you feel. And even though I know I have moved past the feelings you are feeling in your email, I still sometimes feel that way. :).
