I tried so hard to get the wireless network set up at the apartment this weekend before Joy1 came into town so that we2 could all use the internet on both computers with ease but there were just more important things to do. Like collect her at the train station. I was late picking her up because I was trying to set it up! D’oh.
The weekend started off on Friday night with a fun dinner at one of my favourite restaurants with one of my favourite girls, Rebecca1, to celebrate her birthday. Sure we waited 35 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation but the food and service3 is always amazing so we didn’t complain too much. Though we probably should have.
I got up early on Saturday to drive out to Brampton to buy the wireless router for $254. I drove back down to the apartment to clean it up a bit for Joy’s arrival… I was nervous about meeting her again after being out of touch for so long but it was like the absence was absent itself. We headed out to lunch at Milestone’s at Yonge & Dundas to energize for some shopping that afternoon.
We shopped until we dropped then headed back to the apartment to get ready for the Fried Dough Loft party. The party was fun, but there wasn’t enough eye candy and Joy was pretty tired after only having 3 hours sleep the night before. We headed home and continued the party there. The next day was a struggle, to say the least, but we mustered up enough energy to go to see Star Trek5 after dinner at my parent’s house6.
I begrudgingly went to work on Monday and rushed home so we could go rock climbing and then have a romantic7 dinner at a nearby French restaurant. Oh how it was deelish. I drove her to the airport early the next morning and felt my heart breaking all over again.
It has now been less than a week since she left and I feel like I want to abandon everything and fly out west – but I won’t. If I haven’t done it for Dublin yet, I doubt if I would do it for Victoria8. But I do hope I get to see her again in August; I lost the connection once but I’ll be damned if I ever lose it again.
Have you re-connected with someone you used to be close with lately?
