My day

Today was interesting.  I didn't get enough sleep last night.  But I got up, worked outed out, got my gorgeous, went to work.  Today was my lunch with a very good, very special friend of mine.  We've known each other for almost 21 years. 

So today of all days, I was assigned two fairly simple, but very time sensitive documents.  So this morning flew by and I got the documents submitted 5 minutes before I had to leave for lunch.

I used to work with this friend and he has been the biggest male influence in my life after my dad and my husband.  We haven't worked together for a number of years but that's ok.  He's now strictly a very good friend.  We've seen each other through a lot ... his divorce, my marriage, my weight gain, various jobs for both of us.  We don't see each often very often but as long as I have him in my life, I'm happy.

Connections with people are interesting.  You never know who you are going to meet, or where you are going to meet them or what kind of a connection you're going to have.  I've lost touch with a couple of girlfriends who have gone on to have families.  We are child-free and loving it and somehow a lot of our friends seem to be in their 20's and mostly 30's.  People who, like us, choose not to have kids.  It's a personal choice.  And we just seem to collect friends from variuos places which is so cool.  It makes parties very interesting.

Speaking of parties, I simply have to post some pictures from our Dec. 5th Christmas party.  I just have to catch up to my life.  I promise I'll do it this weekend.

Keep on smiling and don't forget to let people in ... you never know where it'll lead.  Good night.


  1. Hi Sandy! Friends come and go but the real friends stick with you. And I treasure those kind of friends... they are part of my priceless gifts in life. I'm so glad I met Barry and now, you.

  2. Yes! Post pics from the party, please. :) I'm sure it was a great time. You and Barry are so sweet and so much fun. I wish I could have gone!!
    The older one gets, the harder it is to find friends, it seems. A lot of girls my age are married with kids now and it seems we don't have anything in common. It's kind of frustrating...sigh.
    I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I wish I had more friends that are true actual friends. I truly do. I understand what you mean completely how people just get to be in different phases of their lives so you just don't mesh anymore, totally.

    Ohh please post pics, that would be so much fun. =) Glad to hear you enjoyed your lunch with your friend!
