Just roll with it….

I have many positive things to say about friendships introduced and nurtured on the internet.  He and I spent the day with @Tracy yesterday.  I had mentioned to “him” that when we all got together in Chicago last month that we are just like “real” “normal” people together.  The fact that we only occasionally see each other face to face doesn’t matter…we know each other.  He felt it yesterday too.  We would be discussing something and we had history like memory foam.  Oh ya..you did this or did that or said this or that…YA Xanga introductions! 

Many of the plans we made for yesterday were complicated…for instance..trying to sail with no wind.  A balloon championship spectacular over the lake with no freeking balloons.  We actually got to sail in the afternoon but didn’t see a balloon although Tracy says she may have spotted one thru her adorable little minocular that she purchased at the Grand Canyon.  It was a wonderful, relaxing day just talking and eating…we introduced her to Dutch pastry’s and watched each other sweat but when my head hit the pillow last night, I felt I had had a perfect day.

Until next time…

  1. I get what you’re saying. I feel like I already know some ppl here so well even tho we’ve never met IRL, I think it would feel like catching up with a friend you just haven’t seen in a long time. Probably less awkward than actually catching up with an some old friends I really haven’t seen in awhile πŸ™‚  Glad you had a good time! I have never sailed either, I think it would be a lot like kayaking..we see a lot of sailboats out when we do that. They just look so gracious out there, all colorful and happy. πŸ™‚


  2. We sail about 30 minutes from our house.  We would love to have you guys come over and sail with us.  It’s very peaceful…no motor just the sound of the water…love it.


  3. I feel it, too. I think sometimes we express things here that we won’t “IRL” and that creates a bond and closeness. So Craig is wondering where do you sail? He has always wanted to sail and did in high school and college a couple times with a neighbor. I don’t think he could do it now with his bad back. It is nice to just hang out and relax and chat. I’m glad you had such an enjoyable time.
