This weekend was AWESOME Bloggies. Like literally, AWESOME. I feel SO much better. I’ve been busy selling stuff and interacting with my neighbors like a normal person lol. Not having them stare at me like I’m a plague of some kind has really helped me restore my faith in Nowheresville. I don’t go out of my way to be extra friendly to my neighbors just because it’s not something I’ve ever been used to. I mean I’ll be polite and what not, but if they don’t say anything to me, I won’t go out of my way to strike up a conversation. Unless I have a REASON to say something anyway. With the sale going on, my professional persona came out and I was very cheery and talkative. I think it surprised a lot of people at first, but once they actually got to talk to me they realized Kevin and I weren’t just some punk kids moving in and destroying the neighborhood. I don’t really know what about us would give off that impression other than we’ve been so busy trying to finish the interior of the house we’ve had very time to work on the exterior which is basically all people see so… Or they just assumed like many other young people in town we were going to have crazy parties or a bunch of drama. It doesn’t really matter now that we’ve broken the ice.
Last night the few friends that were sharing in the sale came over with this epically obnoxious and crude party game, Cards Against Humanity, and we had an absolute blast. It’s kind of like Apples to Apples but geared towards adults. Anyone interested in hilariously inappropriate things should check it out. lol. There were a lot of good laughs, and it was just nice to spend time with people having fun. I haven’t really been able to do that since Nora was born. I mean I spend time with friends here and there, but I’m usually pressed for time because of Nora’s schedule. Last night since everyone was at our place, and she had gone to bed it was much easier to figuratively let my hair down and relax.
It was actually the first time we’d had people over to our place in like two years. At least for the purpose of hanging out and having fun. I miss being randomly social. This summer we’ve been too busy with Nora and moving and trying to finish the house, and everyone else has been busy with different stages in their own lives. Or has moved out of town, or doesn’t like to leave their own house. lol. I love entertaining in my home. I don’t particularly know WHY, but I do. I didn’t always, but I think now that I spend most of my time with Nora at home instead of out in public/the work force I miss the social interaction.
Anyway… I think my last little pile of free things finally got picked up so I need to go take down my signs and clean up the yard. Until later Bloggies. 🙂
