the past couple of days have been amazing! 2 of my very best girlfriends have been in town! they both live in different parts of san diego, so even when i was in LA, i wouldn't see them very often. having both of them up here in northern california literally a day apart from eachother, made me so giddy i could just piddle!!! it's hard being away from them and i guess you don't realize it so much until you physically see them.
boyfriend and i had dinner with ali and her husband on thursday night (alison posts in my comments often, so some of you might "know" who she is. ps- sleepymommy/meg- she reads and posts in your blog almost daily). it was funny, and even though ali and i talk to eachother pretty regularly, it was nothing compared to actually being together. i felt like i was on a rapid fire question show on cnn or something! she would ask one question and before i could even start answering it, she had 7 more questions she'd already spit out! i had to tell the bitch to SLOW HER ROLL like 50 times! it was amazing though. things like that... times like that.. they're precious. they truly are. and among the 10 thousand questions were a lot of laughs and a lot of memories and just plain niceness. i miss her. i've known ali since high school. i knew the first time i saw her that i would be her friend. not only did she like the new kids on the block, but she had the balls to wear one of their t-shirts to school. it was love at first sight in math class. ha! as you can see- she's grown out of the new kids shirt. for now.
and then i had a sleepover with melissa on friday night in napa! i've never been to napa, so that alone was super fun (not that i could see a damn thing driving out there in the dark)! i can't even put into words how amazing and wonderful it was to see her. i love her so incredibly much. she is like the little sister i never had. ever since melissa and i met in college, we've just had this bond. so much so, that i moved out of my dorm room without anyone's permission and into hers. we're just regular rulebreakers! our lives have always kind of paralleled eachothers. we got knocked up 6 months apart and then entered single motherhood together. and everything that went along with finding a good man, and dating them, and introducing them to our child... all the emotions and feelings and bullshit that can go along with that. the kind of stuff that no one else would truly understand because they didn't have to live that life. we always had eachother to relate too. and even though our lives have taken very different turns in the types of men we are married too (or in my case, am going to marry).. being there for one another is something that hasn't changed. our bond has never waivered. this friendship is more than that. and i love and appreciate it so much. my little soul sister.
i have amazing friends. i really do. my core group of girlfriends are just downright good people. the worst part is i rarely get to see any of them. we're talking once a year at most here folks. is that so odd though? when you have kids and you live far apart from eachother- isn't that kind of how life goes? how often do you see your best friends?
