So many people I know are leaving Kuwait permanently that it feels kinda weird. Stella has been gone for a while now, but at least she's close in Dubai. I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Slaperella before she moved to Australia. Butterfly flew the coop months ago and has her old gig back at CNN in Atlanta.
And now, come to find out (only through our shared part-time housekeeper) that Spanx is leaving after 5 years. 5 years?! How did that happen? It seems like just the other day I was introducing her to Butterfly and they were both newbies here.
I really don't socialize as much as I used to. My time is filled with dogs (well, the big one mostly) and work. My free time is now downtime or re-charge time and I swear I would never get to this place in life.
When did I get to be the kind of person who doesn't get around to see my friends that are leaving? Slaps and I have been friends for years, but then both of us got so busy and took different directions. I really should have called her (guilt...)
So for those friends that I haven't gotten around to see or to keep in touch with lately, I am sincerely sorry. I should be a better friend. I promise to get in touch soon. I always tell other people that you can maintain friendships if you just MAKE the time to do it. I need to take my own advice.
