Seeing her reminds me, though, that I don't seem to get out socially much anymore. I'm not sure why that is, per se. R and I moved out to the house on the other end of town from where we once lived and we kind of miss being close to things. It puts us far from almost all of our friends. The funny thing is that Rubylou is probably one of the physically closest friends to where we are. She's only about 15 to 20 minutes from here in the same end of town.
