Ok, here's to starting something new...my bestest friend Tracy has been blogging (apparently!) since 2006 and encouraged me to read her posts since we don't seem to be able to connect as often as we would like lately. Between marriage and kids, buying houses, careers and the rest of life getting in the way there just doesn't seem like much time to chat anymore. I really miss her, I miss having a girlfriend to come over and offer a shoulder to cry on. She's 909 miles away in Juneau, and I abandoned her to come down here after having my first child. All of my family lives in Seattle and we are all very close. None of them even come close to having a girlfriend down the street though. I don't know why I haven't been able to connect with anyone like her down here; maybe it's me, maybe it's just that our friendship is that unique. Maybe if I put myself out there a little more there would be more opportunities to meet people. But that's the big challenge isn't it, putting myself out there? I don't think this really counts as "getting out there", but hey, maybe it's a start.

I was trying to keep my shit together today after a horrific experience with the assholes at GCI, but dammit all to hell if your post didn't make me cry. Love you ~

Yea to trying new things! It's easy once you start. I just pretend no one's listening, reading, or caring and the words flow with ease! Course I want people to read my entries otherwise I wouldn't be taking the time to make them worthy. Look forward to reading about you, your family, Settle, and new-found hobbies! Nancy--your best friend's mom :)
