We all (at one time or another/ or still do) have friends that suck the life out of us!
I've been 'friends' with one such person for about 30 years! I. KNOW.
I can't do it anymore.
What. Am I a slow learner?
I don't think so.
I always look for the best in everyone.
I have some really good 'friends' I see a few times a year, and it's like we talk all the time!
We just pick up where we left off.
I LOVE those friends.
I've had a headache (migraine) 3 out of the past 5 mornings.
Oh yeah, I've got drugs, ones I don't like to take, cause I can be stoned and still have a headache!
I can't tip toe around this 'friend' anymore.
I can't listen to her problems, which are always the same.
I can't fret about getting together with her, never knowing what mood she'll be in.
I can't stress over making her a card, worrying she'll take any sentiment I put in it or on it, the wrong way.
I can't offer solutions and suggestions anymore.
I've done it for about the last 10 years....or more. Really.
I've decided she doesn't want a solution, she just wants to be miserable.
I'm trying to come to grips with that.
Are some people just happy being miserable?
My mom said: "You've been friends a long time, you must have been at the end of your rope."
I guess I was.
Pretty sure it's the end of that 'friendship'.
I said some stuff......no, I don't think I'd take anything back.
I said I wouldn't want to hear about it anymore.
Like I tell the kids: "Everything's good in my little world, til somebody screws it up!"
I've dealt with depression, and I don't like feeling like this.....
Like the headaches, it makes me tired.
Anyhoo, I read some good stuff on the internet.....well, I don't know how good it is......
Pretty sure I've tried it all.
It makes for interesting reading anyway!
And a humorous look at friends.....
I'll try to lighten up, just had to get that off my chest!
And yeah, she reads the blog...........................................
March 1st/ oh wow!
There's some new challenges I'll be trying to come up with something for!
I put one up with blogaversary candy over there on the sidebar!
Brenda makes gorgeous cards!
It's tropical here today!
Sun is shining, birds are singing, and it's light out for about 10 hours in the day!
Gotta love that!
I've got a UFO on my desk that I just can't get right!
And yeah, some of it is GLUED down!
I got some new stamps today; Bugaboo, from Stampalicious!
They make me smile!
I sent Kalens congratulations card.
He got promoted to Leading Seaman.
It was a ceremony, and he also got whatever he was getting for being picked as the Sailor of the Quarter in December!
Note to self, use a darker ink on these!
He's sailing now.......for months.
Maybe I'll be able to talk to him this weekend!
I also made this birthday card.
Sorry for such crappy light for both!
Hope this finds you well!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Talk to ya later!
Ta ta for now!
