Last lonely Saturday...

Oh yeah...the week I've been waiting for...the return of SWEETIE MAN from his month away which means that next Saturday at this time guaranteed....I WILL NOT BE BLOGGING!!! (OR CROCHETING OR KNITTING) I feel like it's Christmas and I'm a little kid. I hate when he goes away but's part of the job.
Okay....tomorrow I'm going to a birthday party. I'm not a party person. I'm a sit at home, one on one person. Not that I'm an introvert.....I'm just a real homebody. I am sorta shy until you get to know me and then I'm crazy....okay, not crazy....but no longer shy. Anyway, the party is for a friend of mine who is actually a 4th cousin way back. She is turning 50 and the party is a surprise. (she doesn't read my blog so I'm not worried) Anyway, she only lives a block away but I dont' really see her that often. She even works about a block from me. We occasionally email things but that is about it. But she is the first friend I remember earliest recollection was being about 4, sucking my thumb, and her being over. She was probably one of the only people beside my family that knew I sucked my thumb. There are just so many memories of things I did with her....crazy things. Like when we would sunbath on the roof of my house outside my bedroom window....or we would paint our toenails flourescent orange.....hide from boys she didn't want to go out with.....and how I would go on blind dates that she would fix me up with (that's a whole other blog!) . I could really go on and on about her....she is different to say the least...she could tell you something bad that happened to her and make it sound so hilarious that you couldn't help from laughing. I guess it was just the way she told it. My mom would always say I got sick after coming back from playing with her...which was nonense. We went to school for eight years together and her family's house was less than a block from mine. We were never best friends.....just lasting friends...if that makes sense. So many funny times to remember with her that I figured as much as I don't care to go to parties.....I just couldn't miss the opportunity to rub it in that she turned 50 before me.....Happy Birthday, Elaine!!! (aka The Crumb!)
