Friends are fuel

Fuel for the soul and the spirit - you know your friends are for real when you haven't seen them in forever yet, it only takes one meetup, one phonecall, or one chat and it's like you were together yesterday. There is just no downtime, you know? No awkward posturing, or silences, or smalltalk bla bla. Yeah. I am so damn blessed, I want to shout it on the rooftops! So to my friends, I tell you this:

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart." ~Elisabeth Foley

"A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down." ~Arnold Glasow

What a crazy day it's been. Had a loooong meeting with HR and my boss to nail down my job description and new tasks, what a messy and convoluted affair. I'm being pushed to do stuff I absolutely, positively despise (more like a phobia, if you will) and for sure it'll affect my review... still lots of discussion to go through, what a brain drain. Add to that the stress of two job mandates, working late, rushing home to take care of the kids and trying to get errands done (never managed to get the groceries tonight, that'll have to be tomorrow).

I'm just drained. Two nights of bad sleep don't help, either. It was really cool to see my little bro again though, he showed me what was wrong with the kitchen sink taps so Thursday, I know how to take them apart again and bring the parts to the hardware store for replacements. Hah! Knowledge is powah! He liked my chili and home-made iced tea, am flattered. That guy is a nutrition whiz, he knows more than your average dietician - how cool is that?

Kay. Rambling, I'm boring, sorry. Time for my shower anyways... where I often reflect on "is this what life is all about? Rushing from one part of the day to another? Why is tomorrow always arriving so fast?"

Hey my darling cocotte!

I never very far, I will always be there when you will need me, that what friends are for.

I was happy to talk to you and hopefully we will connect. Meanwhile, I done what you requested and got Mr.G and you an invite to THE exhibit in LA.

Have fun Darling and come back to us rested and full of "gossip" to tell.
