I Love My Friends

Ya know what?

This week has been shit. And apparently not just for me. So I've decided there's something in the air and it has knocked us all on our butts.

That being said, this is just a little post to tell my friends who read this THANK YOU! Thanks for being there for me. Thanks for letting me vent (no matter how Italian and extreme my rants may be). Thanks for allowing me a safe haven away from all the things that actually are miserable in this world (see yesterday's post if you haven't read it yet).

I have the greatest friends in the world. They listen, and they still love me no matter what. I can't begin to explain how much I look forward to spending Friday nights with them (or Saturdays, or sometimes both). I spend the entire 5 days of my work week anticipating the weekend because I get to spend time with people who understand me, make me laugh, are creative, funny, sincere, and just get my sense of humor.

They say that friends are the family we get to choose, and I couldn't agree more.

Dave- thanks for your comment yesterday. Sorry you're in the same boat I am in this week. We need to sail on into better days. Yay for the Haunted Forest this weekend :)

Marge- I am SO GLAD you guys are coming on the 24th. It's been too long since I've seen you and I miss you tons. And love you tons. And am so grateful that our friendship has endured college and everything beyond (and thanks for the wise and comforting advice).

Amanda- thanks for being there every morning (well, most mornings) on gmail. Just knowing that someone is around while I'm sitting here miserable at my desk is a comfort, and knowing that it's you is that much more of a comfort. You don't know how much you help me get through my crappy work days.

Melissa- I love you. You're my long lost sister. Nuff said :)

Nat- I don't even know if you read my blog, but either way, you keep me laughing. And I love our lunch dates :)

And Hubby o' Mine- You're all the qualities I listed above and more (well, not the long lost sister one) but you get the idea. I love you and am so thankful for you.

Now- Where the hell is my FRIDAY?!?!?!


  1. Yes, I read your blog. I'm a lurker. I lurk. :)

  2. Oh, Michelle, this is so sweet! I wish I had read it earlier! Love you too! And yay for things having got better since you wrote it:)
