Today is an old/former friend’s birthday. I’m not sure if I feel bad because we have not spoken in 6 years or because I almost forgot what today was (even after a reminder). I turned on a band on the way home that used to mean something. The songs that used to mean so much are the ones I feel mostly nothing for and skip. The ones that used to mean nothing, still mean mostly nothing, but I guess my ears have changed because they are the ones I’d much rather listen to.
Last weekend we attempted to hike Cold Mountain… it was kinda failure and by kinda I mean we did not reach the top, see anything cool, and walking down hill just about killed me. I’m a big wuss with old lady knees. Next few hiking purchases will be a knee strap (my braces are too constricting) and trekking poles.
Next month I’m visiting my Parents and Hometown and some pretty awesome friends. At the end of the month Other J and I will attempt to go camping in preparation for our Memorial-Day-Weekend Multi-Night Camping Extravaganza.
