Not too long ago I wrote a post about growing older and growing apart. I guess friendships, like most things in life, follow an ever-changing cyclical pattern. Or as Heidi would say - one day you're in, the next you're out!
Eight months ago I admitted defeat - "Hanging out with my girlfriends has become such a rare instance, but is a reality that I've sadly grown accustomed to." These days, I'm singing an entirely different tune... I'm happy to report that I now see my friends on a somewhat regular basis. I'm really not sure how it all changed, but we've had a constant flow of plans including brunch, dinner, lunch, movies, shopping, mani/pedi, waxing, guitar hero parties and even a cooking class. And tons of phone calls, IMs, text messages, emails, and facebook messages in between.
I wonder when the cycle will end - will we go off track again and get bogged down with our individual lives and go months without seeing each other again? I hope not, but at least now we know what the next cycle will bring! I just hope we won't have to wait for another Sex in the City reunion.
