I don’t have any words of wisdom this week, just support for a friend who is finding out the hard way that sometimes people aren’t who you think they are at all.  We love you. 

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me 
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got troubles, well I’ve got ’em too
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and we see it through
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me 

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do 
It’s me and you
And as the years go by
Boys, our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see
It’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Says you little yellow bird….

I need to learn to slow down. Lately I have felt like I am in a constant rush. I am too busy for everything and have too much on my plate. I always feel like I could just relax when I finish one more thing. The problem begins when that one more thing never comes because it has a pile stacked up behind it and that pile just keeps growing, threatening to topple over an smother me at any second.

In my quest to finish everything on my endless list so I have time to relax, I have been neglecting the important things in my life. DigitalRob, LW and I aren’t spending enough quality time together doing fun stuff. My knitting, crocheting and scrapbooking projects are gathering dust. I have let my friends sit on the sidelines because if they can just wait until I finish one more thing, I will have time to go out for girls night, go shopping, sit down for a cup of coffee, or just chill out. 

I am starting to realize that there is always going to be  one more thing  that needs to be done. So I am going to take a deep breath and slow down. Last night, I did exactly that.

We went over to FandPinLV’s house in Syzdekistan. CajunVegan and Boog met us there and we all stuffed our faces with fondue until we were ready to burst.  Pomegranate martinis were consumed by the truckload by the girls and I think the boys polished off a kegs worth of beer or so. While  LW, Boo and Doodle had a fantastic time playing Wii games and flinging themselves down the four stairs into the family room, the grown ups sat around the table and just talked. We talked about everything, we talked about nothing. We just relaxed. It was wonderful and it needs to happen more often. 

That is my goal for the day. R-E-L-A-X. No  one more things to do today. I am going to do some yoga, watch the Super Bowl and have a good time with friends. Happy Sunday to you!

I have a couple of kindnesses this week – real ones -…just because I’m feeling generous. 

First, I am going to commit a random act of kindness or two. When I stop at the drive-thru tomorrow for a little fruit and yogurt parfait – shout out to Starbucks for the peach/blueberry combo – I am going to pay for the order of the person behind me in line. If there is nobody behind me, I am going to tip my barista $5.00. 

Second, I am going to be kind to my body. I have been uber-stressed out lately and even though I have not broken my resolution to not eat meat more than once a week, I have been eating crap. I am going on a 48 hour clean eating fast. Fruits, veggies, no processed carbs, no meat, no sugar, no soda. I just need to detoxify myself for a couple of days because I feel bleh.

Third, I want to give a shout out to some of my favorite bloggity friends. These people are all on my daily to read list and I love them all dearly. They ARE friends, even if I only know them virtually.

CajunVegan – my RL compadre and confidante, the one I adore who shares my fucking fabulosity

FandPinLV –  another RL amiga who has managed to weather all of my ups, downs and sideways turns

Miss Attitude – the one I was fortunate enough to meet and can now call a RL friend

TopSurf – the one I wish would fly southwest so we COULD become RL friends

Claudia – awesomest of the awesome. Claudia centers me more often than she knows. She is my calming presence. She’s also the keeper of Simply Kind Tuesdays! 

Devyl  and NotAMeanGirl – my girlies from the South…I love them so!

CitizenJaney – My second friend in Tampa – city of my birth. Her musical tastes leave me swooning and dancing at least once a week

PrincessQ – sweetest, funniest little DC girl I know! 

Soren – sole man in this list. WOOT! His blog makes me laugh and cry, but it also makes me think and for that I thank him profusely.

So….be kind, go visit my posse and tell them I said hi!

I’ll leave you with a giggle today…thanks again to Natalie Dee. college-life
