Nothing new to report today. Just same 'ole same 'ole.
I spent last evening at the women's crisis center I volunteer at. Once a month we have a gathering for our clients where we just hang out and pamper them. Last night was the first one of this season and it was a hit! We had great food and fun crafts. It was a little hard for me to be around all of the babies, and to listen to all the baby, pregnancy, breastfeeding etc. talk, but other than that it was great. It is nice to see how much the clients have grown emotionally, and spiritually since they first walked through our doors.
I have been a little blue the last couple of days. Not exactly sure why. I guess I feel a little secluded. All of the friends I used to have either I am not friends with anymore, or they have moved and I literally have no "girlfriends" that I hang out with on a regular basis. I get up in the morning, go to work, come home, and do it all over again the next day.
I remember my friendship with my best friend in High School. She knew me probably better than anyone and was just so intuitive. She would call me in the morning and say "Got a feeling something was wrong...what's up?" And 99% of the time, she was right. She made me feel like she truly cared about my feelings, my hopes, dreams, aspirations, and for my overall well-being. She and I lost touch after High School, and I miss having that kind of friendship. The type of friend you hear about or see on TV, but rarely experience (at least for me).
I have no plans for the weekend and that makes me very happy. Typically Pace and I's weekends are even busier than our week, so not having plans for the weekend is quite refreshing. Maybe I will finally catch up on all of the housework I have been neglecting. The weather is going to be beautiful, it is supposed to cool off this weekend and I am SO looking forward to that. I am not ready for another Arizona Summer!!!
It has been a turbulent, roller coaster week and I am ready for some relaxation & TLC!
