Getting to be a (bad?) habit, scribbling and posting on towards 3 am. Unlike the first such item a couple of days ago, this is not born of neck discomfort, as that issue is receding after a few painful days. It did affect my activities, as I haven't been to the gym since Wednesday. Need to make it 8 times in 13 days for the ugly t shirt. I also decided against making a trip to Milwaukee to see some friends play a show, which is unfortunate because it was the last such opportunity I had to do so before moving. Hopefully they can make a trek out Michigan way sometime.

Instead, I stayed in Madison Saturday night. And even there, there were a couple crossed wires, leaving me to my own devices. So I went and watched some football and breakdancing. The football was the Big Ten Championship game, of interest due to Wisconsin's participation. The Badgers did not disappoint (unlike their performances for much of the season), rolling over Nebraska 70-31. No, that's not a basketball score.

As for the breakdancing...a former coworker is a performer, or b-girl, and she posted about the event. Just watching the competitors/performers made my abs hurt.

Weird moment at the end of the night, when I went to greet my acquaintance, and quite naturally left off saying, "I'll see you around." It wasn't until a minute later as I was exiting the building that I realized that this was a person I'm unlikely to perhaps ever meet again.

My mind's just shot off on an age old tangent of, "where's that border between 'friends' and mere 'acquaintances'?" But, then again, I've probably been exploring that tangent a good bit lately, trying to decide who to spend time with, or to inform about leaving, before actually doing so. I called someone today, to see if she'd be around over the next two weeks, as she travels a fair deal for work. Being the perceptive type, she figured out something was up, and I told her why The two week timeline. Felt a little bad when she said I ruined her Saturday...but that I felt the need to get in touch, that puts this person in the friend category.

On the other hand, there are others to whom I am closer, and spend more time with, who I am reluctant to let know...and I'm not sure why...regardless, I have a couple of phone calls to make tomorrow.

    It isn't easy to say good-byes! When I left to move from IL to CO years ago, I went thru that process, and it was @ times painful! As it went, I only lived there for 10 months before a better opportunity came up back home in IL! As luck would have it though ANOTHER opportunity happened in WI, so had to leave IL again, and this time it's been 5 yrs. (and 4 mths. but I won't split hairs! LOL) I've learned that home is where the heart is and right now, this feels like home, so that's a good thing.

    Wishing you all the best on your relocation to MI.
