Optimism on Monday
Ok, so my weekend was pretty great (despite my slightly bitter mood on Saturday). Sunday I went over to Neisha’s and played the envy game. I know envy is a bad thing, but I can’t help but look at her with her three kids and her husband and all of that happy and feel slightly envious. Her house is one of the very few places I feel totally comfortable.
Last year, over the July Fourth weekend, she invited the girls and I over. I was so worn out from work and the hundred or so things my kids were doing at the time that I was hesitant to go. But once I got there and plopped down into one of her lawn chairs, it was like utter and complete bliss. I sat there in the sun while her husband barbequed and chatted with her and their other friends and held her delicious son (who was only like five months old at the time and just enjoyed being part of her company. She and her husband really are great hosts. They know how to cook all kinds of cool shit that I have not even the slightest clue how to cook. They are both very laid back. Our kids mesh so well together and just pair off and run around for hours playing with next to no arguments.
Yesterday, the kids did the slip and slide for like two hours. Neisha and I ran into town where I signed up to rent space at a store for my bracelets. I am waiting for one more shipment of charms and I am good to go. I need to price things tonight and tomorrow so I can start getting them in there tomorrow. I also have to do the damn website. Who knew html could be such a royal pain in the ass. I mean, I edit my html on this blog all the time, but it is just inserting pictures or changing links. Very cake. But, building my own site… well, I know it will be something good for me to understand. Anyway, paying for my space is really lighting a fire under my ass.
And the last thing I am going to mention here before I get my ass to work is that I have really great friends. I am not going to name off everyone, but you should all know how much I appreciate you. I love the reassuring phone calls and the encouraging emails and the bbq’s :) I love that you guys call to see how I am doing and are genuinely interested in my life and my progress. I really am lucky to know all of you. Thank you.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
