I wasn’t going to post today. I didn’t really have anything to say. I have a few drafts saved but with my jaw pulsing like it is right now, I didn’t want to take the time to form a coherent post. But then I remembered that one of the best parts about my blog is the non-coherent posts….
Last week I was feeling really down. I’m in the midst of a lot of frustrations here and a mountain of homesickness (spurred on by the constant frustrations). Then this happened on facebook:
I have these two friends: the red is the mom of a friend. We went to the same church for 20 years and this mom is hilarious. I love her! The blue is a friend of mine – the daughter of one of my mom’s old friends. She is also hilarious. Both are older than me. I am obviously the pink – I am Always the pink! When you put us all in the same facebook post things get a little silly.
This is quite an improvement from the last conversation we all had on Blue’s wall – she posted a link to a new zip lining course in Ontario. Blue and Red were going to go together, and not be adults for the day. I wanted to go along too, but Blue thinks I was going to adult! HA!! Then it appeared that Red will need adult diapers and that I was the one who would be in charge of such things! HA!! Again! I’m not sure how being the youngest and the only one who isn’t a parent (although Blue is a step-parent to fully potty trained humans) qualifies ME for diaper duty…..
I love these two! They are the best! And even though they didn’t know how down I was feeling or how much I needed the laugh of us being turtles on the back of crocodiles or alligators (water horses I guess is the correct term?) it cheered me up! And reliving it today in my pain has made my day a little brighter once again
