The mail just arrived and my friend from Arizona sent me some Easter candy (chocolates, actually), which I wasn't expecting and thought was very nice... I gave up chocolate for Lent so you can imagine how I'm dying here, LOL ;)
Update on my friend from college... I went about a week before I emailed her back. I just caved in because I was starting to feel guilty for ignoring her. She did wish me a happy birthday in the card, even though it was a bit back-handed or short-sighted the way she did it. I told her I hadn't heard from her in ages either, except for the forwarded emails she sent. I told her I received her card but wasn't very happy with the note she included, that I thought it was a tad insensitive to write in a birthday card. I also told her I didn't have anyone special (since that was what she said in the note - to bring someone special with me to her wedding) and I didn't think I'd be going. I suppose my email came off as a bit cold but I had to let her know that she'd upset me somewhat. I did thank her at the end for the birthday wishes and that was it. I don't expect to hear back from her, but to be honest I don't really care that much. She pretty much stopped bothering with me after she and her boyfriend got serious and it's a shame but things have really changed for both of us. I have other friends with whom I feel a lot closer (even though they live further away), so it's not as if I have no one to talk to and she was the only one I could count on. I do feel bad because I'd hate to lose anyone as a friend and stop bothering with them, but I guess it's just the way things happen sometimes.
Well, enough of that heavy-handed stuff, lol... Hopefully we will be moving out of our crummy office space soon, too. Our attorneys looked over the lease agreement for the space in the building next door, and there were only a couple of small concerns that they'll try to iron out with the landlord's attorneys. They aren't a huge concern at all, the landlord is going to get some workmen to that space in the next couple of weeks, and we're going to get our tech guy to go over there and see how we can get things wired up inside, so it looks like we're one step closer to moving in there. Our own landlord is asking to show our current space soon as well, so maybe we'll actually get out of here earlier than we thought (which was the end of June). Things are looking up, so I'm pleased.
I better run... once again I hope my friends have a very Happy Easter, if you celebrate. :)
