Accidently missed my blogging session yesterday due to having an upswing in the social life. A couple guys from work invited me to come and hang with them at a local bar/restaurant for a few hours in the evening. Well, the invite was to meet at 5pm, and I didn't wrap up work soon enough before having to travel. I even skipped a workout evening too! And to make matters worse, I had me a delicious chicken sandwich with homemade chips that was sure to add a pound or 2 to me. A couple of hours of conversation and a meal later, and I was back home. Nothing too exciting, but it was quite pleasant. I've been noticing I have been regressing a bit with the social activities. I constantly have to remind myself to not be too introverted and keep myself involved. Maybe it is just the time of the year and lack of sunlight, who knows. I'm just noting the signs, excuses for going out, avoiding making contact, etc. I'll see about improving here in the coming weeks. But, at least last night I made a step forwards again. My heart goes out to ya Banba. I believe you when you say it is amicable, but I'm sure there is pain there as well. I just wish the best for you bud! Reinc idea pretty close to coming to fruition. Talking a snow storm coming to Iowa this weekend which may give me a day to sneak in to work to use the free internet. I shall suck harder than a civ_fighter-civ_mage reinc combo. Trust me on this. At least I'll have some role playing, non-xp mongering fun for a while.
