Miles From Fenway

The Post Everyone Knew Was Coming

If you guys are anything like the rest of my friends, then you saw this one coming a mile away. Or at least, that’s what they tell me.

The Twin and I got back together this weekend. What started off as lunch at Prof. Thom’s to watch the US World Cup game turned into a weekend-long conversation and starting over.

It’s a weird feeling, getting back together with an ex. There’s a certain dichotomy between the two major feelings. On Saturday when we got back to his place I was both completely comfortable and totally nervous. To the point that I was actually shaking. I mean, luckily so was he, but still …

I don’t know that there’s any way I can do justice to what happened this weekend. There were a lot of questions: how do we make sure we don’t put our respective “walls” back up again? How do we make sure we don’t fall into the same trap we did last time? Our one year anniversary was supposed to be next month, do we just start counting all over again (ok, that was a real question, but not exactly our main concern). Here’s what I know: I’m happy. Everything else we can deal with as it happens.

(on a completely unrelated note, The Twin is thinking about starting his own photo blog, but kind of hates the templates on blogger. Anyone have any suggestions on better templates that are out there?)

Screw the photo blog – he should just use Flickr. He might not think it’s pretty, but it’s really easy to sort/post/comment on pictures. He can check out My Flickr pics if he wants to see how it works…

I agree. Flickr is the way to go.

delurking here… I know of you through slacker’s site.

anyways… free and relatively cool tmeplates can be found at this guy’s site:

I’ve used some of his things, then re-vamped them to make them more ‘my own’ in the past.

but for just photos, I’m going to have to agree with the flickr suggestions.

congrats on the reunion, too, while I’m at it. I got back together with my ex and ended up marrying him. The point is that whether it’s your first second or third go around, all that matters is that you’re happy with who you’re with. so congrats, and enjoy the happiness.

If you’re happy, then I’m all for it 🙂

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. I am sure The Twin will appreciate them.

Becki, it’s really good to have you back.

Carrie, welcome! Thanks for the comment. It’s funny before this weekend, I knew no one who had gotten back together with someone like this. Suddenly I’m getting stories from everywhere 🙂

Esther, it’s occurs to me that I don’t think you’ve ever met The Twin, is that really possible? Or am I making that up?

PP – hahaha pp, oh god I am a five year old, anyway, I promise I’m back to stay, I missed you guys too!!!

you were sort of glowing last night. It’s nice to see you smiling so much again.

And you can tell the twin that I’ll have a beer with him anytime.
