And I'm a wee bit anxious which I think is normal. I haven't seen this person since the week before I met husband, so that's about 23 years. He was a friend and sometimes roommate of my college sweetheart and we all hung out a lot together in those days. After graduation we went on a road trip to see my then-boyfriend (and the guy I thought I was going to marry) off on a cross-country peach march (long story), and a few years later (and several BFs later) I also visited him for a week up in the Bay area at his mom's house -- totally platonic, but we always had a lot of fun. He looked me up on FB a few months ago and turns out he lives in my region so I invited him over to meet the family. This should be an interesting evening! He's bringing Ethiopian food over for dinner. I think that's a nod to a restaurant we went to once up near UC Berkeley with a big group of people. I honestly don't remember much from that night, lol! Interestingly, I had posted something on this friend's FB page last week, and suddenly there's my exBF also posting a comment and then requesting to friend me. I haven't been in contact with exBF since my wedding (I invited him). I think there's still some unresolved emotions bouncing around in me, though nothing romantic whatsoever. Just things that didn't get said before moving on, mostly due to my inexperience and immaturity at the time. Which is unfortunate, because I ended up causing myself a lot of emotional harm as a result of not fully processing some things. And since this old friend is so closely associated with the exBF, I suppose you can see where my anxiety about meeting again comes from. I'm hoping I can use this as a way of exorcising some old ghosts and really moving on in my head to a better place. I'll let you know how it all goes, how the difficult children handle themselves (including husband), etc.
