In the process, he gave me some news -- he and Ajna are engaged, planning to get married in Aug/Sept-ish. Exciting! I'm really happy for him, though of course I do always find it a bit disconcerting when one of my exes gets married. Alex is a serious ex too, the kind where you think, "If things had played out differently, we might have ended up together." An odd sort of thought, and misleading too, since I actually think we would have driven each other crazy even if we had stayed together. Ajna's a lovely girl, and a very talented photographer, and Alex seems really happy with her. So yay!
Still haven't managed to start laundry -- just drowning in the e-mails. But slowly, slowly, we make progress.
