So much to say, so little I can say [Sep. 2nd, 2008|10:02 am]
[Current Mood |thankfulthankful]

Babies are SO cute! Many adorable tots and amazing parents at the daytime BBQ.
Many delicious food items were enjoyed.
The weather cooperated to some extent, at least didn't dampen our pinata.
Goodie bags were enjoyed by kids and eventually adults as well.
The ice cream cake was devoured.
The birthday girls partied down.
The surprise was one for the record books.
My Mom rules! She even took over the grill when my leg started hurting from cooking the first round.
I enjoyed the party despite a bad pain day.
I have more food in my fridge than an army could eat in a week. Please visit and take some!
My new corset is on it's way!!

I couldn't take her to the airport. I don't like it when she leaves.
Cried on the way to work.
I hurt so bad today physically that it's distracting.
Lots to look forward to, but making it through the week will not be easy.
Still losing weight and nauseated.

Stuff I never say enough to close friends
I love you and I need you. I mean that for family, for friends, and especially for Craig. What an amazing week it's been with Craig.

You, Yes you guys, Amy, Angela, Sheila, are actual or adopted sisters to me and you keep showing up. It's like sunshine into the house when you come over or I meet you to see you. It makes all the difference in my life and I appreciate you. If you ever were to choose to leave my life, you are free to go, but I would miss you and still love you. I would just close off the door of my heart like a bedroom I don't use, still the same. Still waiting for you to return. Luckily, my heart has lots of rooms, so while some of them have cobwebs, it's not getting too crowded.

When you leave my house it's like a punch to the gut and it takes all I've got to keep smiling. Can't really put into words why that is, but you resonate with my soul and it's always been that way since the first time you showed up in my life. You're really something special, you know that? I keep you in my life because you are the kind of friend who would fly across the country, and STILL be trying to see a friend even if they didn't make time for you, because you have that much heart. That's why you deserve a friend like me. You deserve it because while you have different things to bring to a friendship than I do, you give it with gusto, and so completely.

Your Mom is absolutely great. She is a total kick.

What an awesome corset. Where did you get it from?

I cry when I leave my mom too. I can't even drop her at the airport because I cry the whole way there and back.

The corset is by electradesigns who I very much recommend. I have a waist cincher made by her (as seen in this icon) and it is wonderful. She isn't always accepting orders, and her order backlog is long, so if you get the chance I recommend getting in an order with her. Her work is a great value for the money. Note: I didn't say "the cheapest", just an excellent value and a great person to work with.

I was talking about Bel, but I thought she was just saying she can relate to having loved ones far away. I'm lucky that my Mom lives close or I WOULD cry for that reason too. :) I'm a cryer.

I'm glad your party was a hit and that you had a good time despite the bad pain day.

Sorry you're missing people. :( It's definitely hard on the heart.

Lanette, I am honored beyond words to be included in the inner circle mentioned in this post. You are so dear to me. I can't believe we've known each other so long. We are both so fortunate, and I hope I bless you as much as you bless me. We are also incredibly lucky to have a few other friends this close to our hearts. Many people never get to be as close to one, let alone a handful of people like we do.

Very much looking forward to the 11th. What is this weekend looking like also?

This weekend is looking really good, but let me check with my man before saying it for sure.

I feel so blessed and last night, I even felt proud. Just look at how well things are going for us! Who would have known it a few years ago. Just thrilled for us. I'm looking forward to the 11th too.

Also, you guys didn't take the cake? Why? Too far to drive with it?

I didn't even think of taking it! LOL! Probably a good thing, as I don't need the dumping and ice cream is notorious for that with me.

That is a very sweet thing to say about your friends. As blessed as you are to have them, they are just as blessed to have you.
