Normally, you would find a "friday fill in" here, but for some reason there wasn't a new one put up, so you are stuck with me :).
As all y'all have probably picked up on, the past few days have not been stellar. I found that last year things were said about me that were flat out, 100%, nuh-uh, no way, not true at all. Unfortunately, those who should have come to me about these concerns as soon as they happened never did, and hence, my family and I are going to move on from this place to some where new. A good new with good friends I have known for a long long time who really know me and know how to separate the crap from the truth (emphasis on purpose). I will miss some of the people I have been at the co-op with *a lot*, but there are others I am happy to say adios to.
33 days. 33 more days and I am El Paso bound. Yes, that layover from hell in Atlanta still makes me crazy, but I am going to El Paso, and that is what matters. Chill out, party, hang, laugh, renew friendships...I get butterflies in my stomach thinking about it! Getting to be with Mom and Poppy makes my heart sing, and I cannot wait to make dinner for them in exchange for the free room, board and love...and maybe a touch of Bailey's too :). I also get to see my hermana del corazon y el alma, or sister of the heart and soul, Ronnie. I became friends with her last year after meeting her through Naomi and we struck it off well. She is sweet, funny, beautiful and spunky, qualities necessary in a friend :). There will be picture taking, reminiscing, looking backing, everything I need. I can't wait!
Don is off on his yearly retreat with his buddies to Black Lake in Onaway, Michigan. He left from work at noon today, picked up his friend Kirk, and off they went. He will be back on Sunday night. I do hope he find the calm he needs for his soul and spirit right now. Things have been crazy since we left our church and he moved into the high pace life of Volt at GM. He deserves this time to just breath in and breath out.
The girls and I will be hanging this weekend. Si and Nana have two of their friends over and Steph has one over for herself. There is a faint glimmer of hope that the girls will all go their aunts' house on Saturday. I rented "The Grudge 3", "Dark Floor" and "Coraline", so one way or the other enjoyment will occur :).
So there you go. Breathing. In. And out. Sometimes I have to be reminded to do so.
