It's quite late here (or early, depending on your perspective) but I just wanted to say I am back. It's been a long, tiring week and I just could not get to the computer. I think the weather is getting me down and I feel as though I am coming down with something. I have had that feeling when you feel like you're getting a cold, but nothing develops, and you just feel sort of crappy.
Now that the whinning and excuses are over, I want to talk about some special friends.
Very good friends of ours just had a baby girl a few weeks ago, and they're coming to visit us tomorrow (they live about 200 km away). I can't wait to see them. They are really special friends. Our children call them Auntie and Uncle and they're kids call us the same. Carmi and the husband have know each other since elementary school and the wife and I have know each other since high school.
It's funny how we hung around the same group, but we weren't really friends. We became reacquainted at a mutual friend's bridal shower and really became friends. I consider her to be my closest friend. We are can really count on each other.
I do have to qualify that Carmi is my best friend!
We try to get the 2 families together every 6 to 8 weeks. As much as we would like more...Life sort of gets in the way. Sometimes we speak on the phone 2 or 3 times a week and sometimes we can go 2 or 3 weeks without speaking.
I admit, that sometimes I feel a little guilty not calling her more than I do. As I have already admitted here...I really don't like talking on the phone. It sounds like such a cop-out to say that I'm tired from work and life and once the kids go down, I just don't want to talk to anyone.
However, when we do speak, we always pick up as if it was yesterday.
It's nice having a friend like that.
Do you have a friend like that? Call them and say hello. You'll be glad you did.
