The Sad Clock Stops at 64 Days

I heard from my best friend today! He was defensive and edgy, but that's because he was the one who initiated contact and wasn't sure how I'd receive it. I wasn't sure how I'd receive it, either, to be completely honest. But it was fine in a tentative, wounded, embarrassed kinda way.

I have too much work to do and I still feel crappy, so I won't elaborate much now. Except to say that knowing he's out there makes having too much to do and feeling crappy more than tolerable. My world feels like it may be slowly righting itself.

And btw, Snarkela, how did you know?


  1. You know how I know, my darling Gal. :-) I had it on very good authority in whom I have absolute trust.

    I'm happy to hear of his contact. You know where to find me if you want to talk.

  2. Yay for the end of the Sad Clock!! Now, get well!!

  3. so very happy for you Gal.

  4. I have been thinking about you lately a LOT, just hoping that you were feeling better and would hear from your friend. There is nothing like that loss and I am so glad the big chill is over for you.
    Now get better!

  5. I know that feeling of relief pretty well. It's a nice feeling, even though the before part sucks like hell. Hopefully the two of you can work things out and get back to how your friendship was in the past.
