I am missing my family so much today. They are in Florida and I am so far from home. If I were there right now, I would curl up on the couch with my head in my mom's lap while she worked on a sudoku, or we would be drinking coffee and playing duker, or eating dad's popcorn and listening to his laugh as we watch a movie together. The way that I feel when I am there is as if the whole house has its arms wrapped around me. It is comfort, it is laughter, it is tears, it is hope, it is connections, it is peaceful, it is chaos, it is home. And no matter where we go, a huge piece of my heart will always be there.

me, the pisspot, and my friend kiki

Everytime I talk to my friend Kristen I am amazed by her level of understanding and the way she alway allows me to be myself. Today was one of those times. Until theis point I had known our common ground - shopping, fashion, baby stuff, God....but today she showed her true colors. I called her as i was 5 minutes from her house, she answered the door in her pj's - I love it! - and threw on something that she looked absolutely adorable in; and didn't even realize how adorable she looked! She listened to me piss and moan for hours on end, walked around target with me while i was on a caffeine high - talking 90 miles an hour, and pulled me through a killer red ant attack! She always makes me laugh even on days like this - when for the millioneth time i started my period - and although it hurt like hell - she actually made me forget that it had started! She makes me laugh at my own idiocincricies, and at hers :) ! She is truly a gift from God - and not just because she manages my favorite store on earth. Thank you God for blessing my life with this true friend....I am one lucky girl! :)
