Wow, it’s been waaay too long. As usual. And I can’t make this one too long, but just wanted to say a few things. This past weekend I went to the wedding of a good college friend and saw my core group of college friends—we’re unusually tight, I’ve learned. Not everyone has this, this special crew of crazy people who love each other and are loyal and uninhibited and warm and friendly and terrific. It was the first time many of them met DF—next time they see him, he’ll become DH!—and everyone hit it off, which made it extra special for me. The only one missing was Ouiser, and it wasn’t the same without you, honeybunch! Keep growing the last little bit of the girl—any day, now!
I think the real reason I’m writing this is because this week has been really long; it started out with some weird virus (I’ve been told it wasn’t food poisoning by R., who’s been a doctor long enough to know) that started at 2am Monday and chugged along for most of the day. Then I had a tough week at work because I didn’t get my hours of work done on Monday due to being in a fetal position most of the day between sips of Gatorade and bites of Premium crackers. Today was bad for reasons I won’t disclose; suffice to say work was not terrif. But no, my purpose is not to vent: It’s to say that I never would have made it through ANY of this half so well without the love of my friends and family.
My sister sympathized over the phone about my illness for half an hour. DF called me every two. I left a wacky, So I Married an Axe-Murderer-themed voicemail on L.’s phone which made me laugh. My friend D. and I had a well-deserved coffee break last night and she’s going to come over this weekend to help me organize my apartment (and my life). My friend J. sympathized with me today over my crappy day, even though she’s dealing with her own personal stuff and totally didn’t have the time. DF hugged me when I came home and made me dinner. So what can I say? Really, when I think about it, I didn’t have as bad a week as previously supposed. Plus I found out this weekend more people than I thought read my blog, so, hello to all of you! And thanks for being there—my life wouldn’t be nearly as full without you.
