A Great Evening!

Despite pretty terrible weather, yesterday evening was really really nice!

I went to see Sara first, we had a lovely meal and a few glasses of wine - and a lot of laughter ... as always! :)
After a few hours we went over to Johanna and Per and it was great to see them. Their appartment was really nice, and it was wonderful to meet their little kitten, Assar! Totally adorable!! As I'm used to seeing Zorro, I thought Assar so tiny, but Sara assured me he had in fact grown a lot! ;)

I had a really nice time yesteday evening but I have come to notice that I'm still having a little trouble being together with lots of people at the same time. Make no mistake, I'm completely happy with my own personal development, and I'm actually amazed that I have come to be in a situation where I'm even invited to gatherings and parties (because that has not always been so, that's for sure), but I can be more relaxed if I'm only meeting a few people at a time. When there are a lot of people (yesterday we were about 10), I have a hard time focusing and being part of a conversation, probably because I am a bit nervous ... Still, I know that not very long ago, I could hardly keep up a conversation with one person, so I'm confident I will get better and better and being in larger groups as well.

As has happened before, the train escaped us when we were going home (I had the company of another friend who was going south as well). We were a little late from Johanna, ended up running the last bit of the way to the station (and I have absolutely no condition to speak of whatsoever - am almost seriously considering not eating at all for a month or two, or five or ten - just in order to loose some weight!). Anyway, by the time we made the station, we saw the tail lights of the train as it was leaving! *typical*
But for once we actually were lucky after all! My friend noticed another train departing in about five minutes that would take her home, but it didn't go to my hometown ... although I found out I had a bus leaving in less than ten minutes that would take me only a short walk from home. So the whole thing ended well, after all!

Today I have been completely out of it!! Zorro was kind of excited when I got home (a little while after midnight), he finds it a bit difficult to handle that I'm gone during the night, so he was more or less running wild, and I had a hard time winding down to. I eventually became tired - but Zorro had apparently been sleeping all day, because he kept on going until 4 a.m. - *YAWN!* Therefore, I haven't had the energy to do much at all today, but I guess we all need those kinds of days as well.

All in all, yesterday was a great evening!! I realized that I have come a long way in regards to social interaction, I was able to handle things yesterday a lot better than I think I would have only six months ago, but I also realized that I still have work to do on getting better at it.
So yesterday was not only a fun night out with friends, it was also quite educational! *lol*

Take care, guys!
