On a good note...

Bailey, my oldest, the one who left the nest and went off to college 
{complete betrayal
who is smart and feisty and thinks she’s an adult now 
because she’s 18 
{What are laws anyways?   
Hello it’s eight-teen because she’s a teen.  
Sheesh…am I the only who gets that?} 
 So, she’s working hard {in Utah far, far away} and going to school 
{an excuse to be far, far away} 
with a great boyfriend   
{who better bring her back to North Carolina} 
and doing well  
{without me..sniff}   
So basically I am so, so, very happy for her.  
 {grinding teeth}

She sent me this little tidbit a few weeks ago.  She and I and a close friend {like a sister} would text each other roses are red poems designed, written and appreciated by us.  I sent this one to Bai one day, a few years ago, when she was feeling down.  She told me she has it on her desk at work now…along with her PidgApeg Cottage pumpkins that she said "needed to be there" because she had an empty space…

"Cupcakes are vanilla
 I eat them in bed
Don't worry you'll make it
Cuz you've got a good head!!!"

Now if that doesn’t prove what a profound writer I am I really 
don’t know what else I can tell you. {wink}   
But it was wonderful that she thinks of me and my dorkiness everyday. 

On another good note Get this!
 I got a phone call last night from none other than Nay over at
YES! This is the first time we have spoken on the phone.  It was so crazy to actually hear her voice and realize- No I did not make our friendship up in my own sad, little mind. 
{Stop laughing Salena…you know I was really starting to wonder… he hee}

We talked like we were old friends.  
Which we are…for like a month now! {wink}
It was fun stuff!

I have a post that is in the works.  It’s still in my mind.  Why? You ask.  Not because I am forming the words with delicate, thoughtful, diligence; really I was just too tired {lazy} to write it last night.  It would fall flat and considering 
I have been asked “How do you do it all?” a lot lately. 
 I thought I should address this madness head on. 
Just not today.  {wink}
I have several more posts in my brain actually; locked away in my mind's attic.  They must be written soon, if only to empty out my brain to make room for more unimportant thoughts.  I apologize if they're not earth shattering.  
{If you're looking for took a wrong turn buddy!} 

I hope you all have a beautifully wonderful weekend where ever you may be.  I imagine I will have some type of procrastinating Saturday post; but we'll see..I might have to do a few more things first just to prove a point. {wink}

Aisle to Aloha
