We're not three days into this year, and already I'm wondering if it will be a repeat of 2005.
In 2005, we were all ill. My son broke his collarbone. My job was frustrating. We were stuck here.
So far in 2006: I'm sick. Youngest just got over ear infection. Son rebroke (sigh) his collarbone. My job is getting more frustrating to me. We're still stuck here with no sign of getting out.
And a good woman lost her fight with cancer today. One of my best friends ever is now an orphan, technically. Her dad died years ago.
Life is too short to dwell on the negative, so I'm trying to think of all the good things my friend's mom taught me:
Being a mom does not mean you have to be a jerk.
You can be quiet and still make a loud impact on life.
Wilton cake decorating/baking stuff is worth the money.
Wedding cakes can be constructed in an hour if you have to do it. (That's what she did for ours. She drove it three and a half hours to our reception, gladly, even though we told her it would be okay not to. She insisted on making our cake.)
Life is too short to not enjoy every moment, or at least try to.
Redheads are the best women ever. :)
I knew this was coming, but man, it still hurts.
