Our friend finally left today! You may be able to tell that I am a bit excited. Now, don't get me wrong, he's a good friend but, we quickly discovered that we can't live with him. Basically, he reminds us of our old roommate. Starting at about day 3 of his 5 day stay he sat on the couch and never got up. He played my Xbox all day and didn't really pay attention to us. At least we were able to get him out of the house a couple times to eat.

My wife and I wonder how we ever found each other. For both of us, any one of our friends becomes incredibly annoying after a short period of time. For instance, we've had a few friends over for parties and such and, after a few hours, can't wait for them to leave. We got sick of our roommates in Florida and Rhode Island. The my RI roommates were really good friends of mine too, let's just say we haven't spoke in almost 3 years now. My wife and I are generally surprised that after over 7 years together, my wife and I never got sick of each other.

Well I didn't really want to spend the entire post complaining about friends and past roommates but, I guess I did.

Oh wait, one big thing about our friend finally leaving is that I get to pad up again! I was already in the middle of a big diaper craving for some reason and adding the stress of a big project at work to the mix was all sorts of bad. With my friend over I couldn't diaper up so there was no release. At least now I can find some time to relax over the next couple days and hopefully this work project will finally come to fruition.

little circle of trust

Life has been crazy lately. Our baby is growing and, thankfully, my wife is more than half way through the pregnancy and is feeling much better over all. My job has been crazy and super stressful lately which has led to a much higher than normal craving for diaper time, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Of course, joking about diapers all weekend with my best friend didn't help either, which leads me to today's topic.

Last Thursday morning one of my best friends came down from the east coast for a long weekend. If you are keeping score, this is the friend who I told all about my DL side a year ago on Thanksgiving. Wow I just realized how long it's been... Was it really that long...?

Yeah, so anyway. I took a 4 day weekend and picked him up Thursday morning. It only took until Friday for the diaper references and jokes to come out. Honestly, I loved every minute of it. It feels great to have people in my life who I can be completely open with. Sometimes I wish there were more than just 3 people, but there isn't anyone else right now who I feel should know. Or maybe I should say,there isn't anyone else who would take it well and not break our friendship.

I guess you could say, you don't really know what would happen without just doing it and, while that is true, some bit of strategic planning is necessary. I definitely can't just go tell everyone because there will be negative reactions, and it will affect my life and my growing family. I will say though, it does feel easier and I feel more confident opening my self up to others. I may meet someone in the future who I want to bring into my little circle of trust but, as for now, I can't think of anyone else.
