Good Luck & I'm Sorry

Have you ever had a friend that you had such a bond with that you can be apart for months or even years at a time, and then when you see each other, feel like you picked up right where you left off. I have quite a few of those, but most notably my room mates from my freshman year at USU. When word broke of my new situation, they galvanized and planned a long overdue emergency roomie reunion. There was way too much food and we stayed up far too late, but it was the second time I have genuinely laughed all summer long. It felt great.

For some reason, they don't make balloons that convey more specific sentiments in a situation like this. I could suggest a few, but cannot print them here and also could not feel okay about my children playing with balloons that said such things :-) All three kids have had a blast with the balloons and they are still bobbing around the house.

Amber, Karen, Amanda and Sarah. We missed Liz who was out of town :-(

And what do you know? I DID get an award for getting out of bed every day. Contact Karen for yours...

(just in case you are wondering, back in the day we always took pictures sitting on the back of the couch for some reason. We just thought we would keep with tradition :-)

As we always do, we ended the evening saying how we should do this sort of thing more often (even when it is not an "emergency" situation). Everyone seems so much the same to me that it seems very surreal that we all have children ranging from 9 years old to 4 months old. That much time can't possibly have passed can it?

Thanks Ladies! Love you...


  1. It's amazing how healing and uplifting friendship can be. I'm glad you have such great women around for support!

  2. You guys all look pretty much the same!!! What great friends. I am so glad you had a girls night. You deserve it, and it is always good to reconnect with people who knew you from way back, before the world crapped on things. :-)

    I am so happy your have good friends (and how great that you do get an award for getting out of bed....good one)
