And, We're Back

Thanks for all the Birthday Wishes!

We'll do birthday week next week because Bob will be off and well, he's been a bit of a downer with work things going on. Bob just hasn't had a good summer let me tell you. Hopefully it's another down turn we can get through. If not, change is on the horizon.

Still sick and Bob just looks exhausted. Poor guy. I'm hoping I can get him to chillax next week and get more than 6 hours of sleep a night.

My best bud from out West came today (finally - we were trying to keep my bad bugs from slaying her and child) and we went out shopping. Ohhhhh, I remember this.

I really miss my best buds cause we used to go shopping together and hang at the food court and stuff. Now, my best buds are not speaking to each other at all - these ladies have been best friends for 18 years and then a man came into West's life and her best friend decided to never speak to her again if she moved out West. Yikes! I know there is lots more to it but I try not to pry. I'm not sure what will happen when West moves back because she is. (makes me happy) I'm hoping they can find a way back to each other but there is a lot of pain there now.

These were the friends that started 'Friend Christmas' which was my favourite day of December and now, not so much. I created 'Friend Christmas' with my best friend and her family so we still have a nice night but I miss my best buds because they were the girls that went shopping and to dinner with me -their anxiety ridden friend who could drop plans like burnt toast and they still loved me.

It's been hard with these two half a country away to not cross anything with either of them. When West moves back it may prove even harder. West misses her best friend and will bring her up and ask how she is. I answer because I figure she wouldn't ask if she didn't want to know but I imagine this will only become harder when she moves back. Other best bud doesn't ask ever but that's her way and hey, if you are her friend you are well aware of what can send her running. Let's just say you'd never see her in a hospital if you were dying. Seriously. But I accept that so it's all good.

Okay, that was a bit drama-lish for ya. But hey, you know what happens around here. Dirty laundry and all.

I'm looking forward to sleeping like a 'normal' Cindy today. No alarms!!

And I'm sooo looking forward to everyone coming back from summer and getting back to blogging!! That's right, I'm missing you guys something fierce and it's time you were all taken to task for having a life.

Get it together people!!

I'm glad you had such a great time with your friend. And I really, really hope your friends mend their rift for your sake. :o)

Hi Cindy... it's always hard to juggle with friends that suddenly don't want to be friends anymore :( It's just sad.

I'm glad your friend from the West is moving back...does that mean it's over btw her and the guy?

Hope you have fun and Bob feels well soon :) and yeah, hasn't been a great summer for him... but there's a few weeks to salvage it all!

Hey sweets, I'm glad you had a good time and I'm sorry to hear about the best buds drama, good way to start my morning I tell ya, with a good dose of other people's drama's. =)

I hope things at Bob's work settle down so that things will start to look up for him.

Jenster - me too!

Nath - West is planning on coming with boyfriend. We'll just have to wait and see ;)

Rowena - sometimes it helps to know others are in a similar spot. Looks like things at Bob's work will now go from bad to worse. Ah well, it can only hit bottom before it gets better ;)

Bob certainly needs and deserves a break, I agree. The friend thing? Sounds really hard. That much drama gives me hives. :( I hope everyone can make peace.
