that's for sure

I know I said I'd be gone for a few days, but I had a pretty good day at work and I feel better. It was a long day, but I learned a lot and I managed pretty well. I knew working would be good for me today.

More than that, I am so lucky and thankful to have such an amazing group of friends. Even the two with the babies dropped what they were doing, for me. Lana brought me over gatorade and food when I was imobile, Shosh forced me out of my apartment that night for a walk, and then Anna picked me up and took me home with her the next day to hang out, do yard work, and play with the baby. Her husband even took me for a spin and then through the car wash in his brand new convertible, which so reminded me of my Dad in the good times. And then there's my best guy Josh who always knows how to make me feel better, even if it's by phone. I have great friends.

Finally, thanks for YOUR kind words here and via email. I may have even received a video serenade from someone...not mentioning any names.

I feel better already and I have my friends to thank. All of you.

Aww, sounds like you do have good friends. You must be a good friend back to them for them to care.

I think I am. My friend have always been pretty important to me. It's the only reason I stay in this flat grid of a city.

Rachel. I would marry you now and I've not even met you. Your gentleman friend is a buffoon. Even the most idiotic of men know never to tell a lady that they love them 'like a sister'. Fuck me. You were not drunk, you were very brave. 'Attracted to you' indeed. Like a sister.

Come off it. I love my sister like a sister but I'm not attra....

Oh do you know what? I'm trying to be nice but I can't be bothered. He's a wanker and anyone who can write like you is worth so much more than someone who prefers to hedge their bets when you are brave enough to go all in.


Well done you.

Rachel said...

Ah TD, if only they were all like you.

Tired Dad said...

Ah. I only sound good. I'm as rubbish in real life as anyone else.
