am i becoming "that person"????

yes, i'm afraid i am. i used to be the prompt response texter, call you back before i listen to the voicemail kind of person. and lately, i can't seem to keep on top of it. an it's not like i have soooooo many calls that i can't keep up with it. i've just gotten lazy in my social life.

bethany : raise your right hand. now slap yourself.

i am having to motivate myself to call people back and be social. what?!?!? so not like me. no. i'm not in a state of depression. i'm not waahh waaahh about anything. i think i am starting to see the value in spending time with myself. alone time = good.

i had a friend say he wanted to get a big group of people together and do something this weekend. great. what is it about big crowds that is a turn off for me right now? i don't know. this past week, i was able to spend quality time with quality people, and i loved it. i love the conversations you can have in small groups. golden.

don't get me wrong. i love big parties, and just a heads up, we will be having one when we move back in the shack and it will ROCK. YOUR. WORLD. you're all invited. i just find myself getting so distracted and not being able to give one person the quality attention they deserve. not that everyone is dying for a little attention from me, but if i invite them to my house, i like to welcome them by showing my apprecation for their company.

bottom line. i love my friends. i love the quality time. lunch dates, trips to the temple, saturday afternoon movies, late night frozen yogurt. and trips. trips to everywhere and anywhere.

ps. did i tell you i'm planning a few trips and they will be absolutely STELLAR?!?!? nothing like a good travel buddy to an awesome destination. watch out world (or southern utah...) we're coming!!

(this post is also supposed to clear my mind about not calling you back. did i not call you back?!?!? i'm sorry. it's not that i'm trying to avoid you. i am just trying to recover from this state of flakiness. please love me anyways. and if i called you back???? you're welcome.)

I seem to be rubbing off on you. I am famous for not calling or texting people back.. I have come to accept it, it is just how things happen even though I have the best of intentions. It is like I mentally reply.. so CHECK it is off my list!

I'm that person too. But mines more just being really flaky in calling people back. I'm certainly not making blog posts at 11:30 on a Sat night.

Are one of those road trips out to Denver???? They should be.

1. I need to stop eating the Hostess donettes that are sitting right next to me. I think I just downed five.

2. I go through small spurts like that of which you speak ... People call, I don't call back. People invite, I politely decline. It usually only lasts a day or two. But there is no rhyme or reason to it.

3. I want to see the dress. Did I mention that yet?

I forgive you long time :-) But can you please give me your number so I can call you when I'm in Provo again?
