I'm over it

Thanks for all your kind words, I was in a funk, but I'm over it now. One good thing that came out of my last post is that an old girlfriend who reads my blog reached out and her husband offered to give my son guitar lessons for free. So we took a long ride out to their house this afternoon and she and I caught up for hours while the guys played with guitars in the garage. It is impossible to not be happy when I am around these people, they are the human equivalent of sunshine. It went so well, they invited us back next weekend!

Let me tell you something. True friendship is hard to come by. I've screwed it up with her twice in the past. We were best friends in high school, she is my son's godmother, and I love her and her husband dearly. I'm a very lucky lady to still have these people in my life, I think I'll be trying harder to not screw things up with her in the future!

p.s. a word to the wise, celebrating your first day of senior year by doing Kamikaze shots at 7am is a baaaaad idea.

I learned, at one point in my illustrious career, that doing shots of kamikazes to celebrate anything is probably not a good idea, no matter the time of day.

Fancy Schmancy NOW FUNK FREE.

Glad to hear it.

Naomi said...'s been so long since i had one...and btw nothing good ever comes out of doing shots. esp when the phrase, "Give me one more for the road" passes through your lips. Yeeesh.

If ya don't like what you see here, get the funk out... :)

Good friendship is hard to come by. But the good friends are usually the ones who will hold your hair while you're puking up all of those kamikazes.

I'm glad to hear you are out of the funk.

I gotta check back in the archives...I seem to have missed something around here.

I'm so happy he will get his guitar lessons.

Are there any social service agencies around that might fund the football fees and uniform costs? I know it can be hard to swallow your pride and ask, but perhaps Goodwill or a local church might have a program?

Just a thought.

One thing I know from experience is that even folks who look like they are living well are often struggling to pay their bills day-to-day and week-to-week. No one ever talks about financial struggles, we all just talk about the good stuff. So we all just assume our friends and neighbors are doing better than we are, but meanwhile they are liquidating their already meager retirement fund to pay the rent, or selling items on ebay to pay the electric bill.

Not everyone, of course, but it happens way more often than you might think.

Hey! So glad to hear that you and your friend have reconnected; although I wouldn't ever recommend the kamikaze

Maybe someday I will be funk-free like you.
