I wanted to take zen out to dinner last night to have some good food and relaxed conversation. Unfortunately he was swamped at work and didn't make it home until after 9. We went for plan B and I threw a pizza in the oven. Dinner out will hopefully happen tonight. We talked about more issues and things are continuing to settle out. I made a statement in yesterday's LJ about "wanting what was best for him." I added a qualifier saying that I knew only he knew what was best for himself. I was reminded again last night that that was indeed the case. I will respect that. I think the friendship can be repaired. The reset button will work in this case. We will both go on with our lives and our paths will remain close.
