Day 6 of being thankful....I'm thankful for good friends
We had friends over tonight for dinner (I think I mentioned this last night). I made lasagna and bread via my bread machine! Oh I love that thing! My friend made brownies for dessert. We had a great time! We were done with dinner by 7 and got out the cards and played spades. I hadn't played for 7 yrs! Chad taught me when Jordyn was first dx with leukemia and she was still in the German hospital. She'd fall asleep so we played spades! I hadn't played since then, until tonight. It was so much fun! I wasn't the best at it, and kept getting distracted and having a hard time concentrating. The boys were in and out (our living room and dining room is one great room ). For a while they were all in the playroom. Jack was extra grouchy aka very very tired, because he didn't get a nap today. Oh he was just all over the place! Anyways, they taught me how to play Spades. We spent a lot of time laughing. They're getting out of the Army in February and moving back to Florida. He's going to go to college and will be in the Active Reserves and he's planning on coming back active duty as an officer. She has said though that if she ends up pregnant before February he's not getting out! I'm rooting for the pregnancy! LOL We still have 2 yrs here and we all get along so great. I talk to her almost everyday. Before the guys came back we talked normally 4 or 5 times a day on the phone and also normally chatted online, and saw each other a few times a week too. We finally have a couple who we get along with and they're leaving. Michelle (the wife) said they've been searching/waiting for us for nearly 3 yrs and now they're leaving. :( Michelle would definately be my "best" friend as far as women goes, here. I honestly can't imagine what life will be when they leave. We plan to get together often over the next few months. I'm going to suggest every couple weeks we take turns at each other's apartments taking care of dinner, etc. They have a 13 yr old son, who the boys love. He's great about playing with them. They also have a 7 month old little girl, who LOVES her Momma, is starting to really like her Daddy, and really likes me! LOL When we go to Venice the boys will be staying with them! I know they'll be well taken care of. Michelle loves my boys and they love her!
Ok, I'm off to cuddle up by my hubby.
Oh...I'm getting a cold. My eyes are nice and itchy, my nose is all nice and stuffed up. I took some medicine so hopefully that will help. I don't like taking meds, and try not to, but sometimes I just feel the need to breath. It could actually be allergies, because my teeth are also hurting, and that's normally my cue for allergies or I have a sinus infection. I'm going to call and see if I can get in with a dr this week. We're going on vacation next week!!!
Oh Don't forget to go and VOTE tomorrow!
