You know, I really have the best friends...
My Alice friend is adorable and snuggles like nobody's business.
My Ollie friend brings me anything I ask him to bring me. And he gives the best hugs.
My Jesse friend loves me even though I'm crazy and say/do things that don't make sense and are super annoying. And sometimes mean. He gives pretty fantastic hugs too.
My mom, dad, and grandma are still playing Words with Friends with me...even though I can't form a decent word to save my life lately. Also, they answer the phone whenever I call and talk to me even when I don't have anything important to say.
My Kelli friend gives me a pep talk every time I see her. She had a baby 5 months ago and is acutely aware of the parallel universe that my life seems to exist in right now. She has offered all kinds of help, brought me soup, gave me all of her hand me down girls clothes, and offered numerous other favors, and she knows it still isn't enough to make this crazy wonderful, insanely difficult time better, so she sends me encouraging texts, and tells me what a great job I'm doing every time she sees me.
My Shelly friend watched Oliver while Jesse and I were at the hospital. She and her husband ROCKED at babysitting Oliver. And then she brought me dinner. Twice.
My Leisha friend has come to my house every morning this week. She's brings her son to play with Oliver and she lets me do whatever I need to do to stay sane...shower, sleep, eat, cry, talk. And when she found out that I didn't have a very comfortable spot to nurse my baby, she showed up the next day with a huge fluffy pillow that she threw together for me.
My Kimber friend brought me this delicious potato soup with BACON in it! And these brownies...oh the brownies... also, she is going to be my dealer and pick me up some fancy schmancy Paul Mitchell kids shampoo for cheap...because have you seen Alice's hair?
My Bree friend is awesome, and makes me feel super special, even from a million miles away.
My Annie friend is flying in on Tuesday and she is going to save my life. In fact, when I'm having a hard time and I just can't take it anymore, I repeat my new mantra over and over again in my head...
"Annie's coming on Tuesday... Annie's coming on Tuesday... Annie's coming on Tuesday..."
I'm feeling very lucky lately. And very loved.
