Separation: Day 136

The weekend!!! Wait a tick, I have to pull twelve hours shifts all weekend! :)/:( Happy and sad about that I need the money so I can pay ransom and I won't get to see my BFF. This week has gone by in a flash. It seems like yesterday I was starting out the week. All I have done pretty much all week is sleep and rest. I did cook some beef tips and rice the other day with some super groovy gravy. My sister seemed to like it. Well I said seemed to because all I could hear was nomnomnomnom!!! I went out with my friend last night. I just suggested pizza and then we started the whole conversation about what, where, who, and when. I mentioned it and at first she was against it and then decided she wanted Pizza Hut. So we went to Pizza Hut and had one of the best pizzas I have had in a long time. Again we set and talked to the place nearly closed. We never seem to run out of things to talk about. I tell her things that I haven't thought about in years. We really learn something new about each other every time we are together. After leaving I went straight home to get my nap on before having to go to work. It is a nasty habit I've started but every night I have to get a nap before going into work. My sister had even saved me a piece of caramel cake and I ate it on the way to work because of the nap. Last night was a pretty good night. I got to see my boys, my wife hasn't returned the divorce papers yet, and I got to see my friend. So here is a list about things I am thankful for:

  1. Pizza/Chinese (it brings friends together)
  2. My boys football season is over (more time for us)
  3. No therapy for three weeks, and I am still sane.
  4. Maxim Magazine (the closest thing I'll get to holding a woman)
  5. My osculating heater
  6. Pop Candy, Eat Me Daily, Huffington Post (keeps me informed)
  7. Phone call from my brother in Kuwait
  8. My boy had only one C on his report card the rest B's (still room for improvement)
  9. Jericho
  10. Naps


  1. Things seem to be looking up my Friend!!!!! That's wonderful!!!

  2. VERY GOOD thankful list! :)

    How did you meet your BFF, JD? ...would there ever be a potential relationship there?

    THANKS for the kind comments - I'm flattered. :)

  3. @Jules: Things are the best they have been in a long time!! Thanks!

    @Rockstar: Thank you!! JD and I graduated high school together. We kept in touch through friends and commented (sparingly) on Facebook. We both agree that 20 years was too long for us to have not been in each others lives. Right now I want to focus on the friendship and be there for her and her for me. Strangers things have happened though. Your welcome the comments are well deserved!

  4. I love the idea of a things I'm thankful for list! Keeps the day in perspective. I don't comment often, but I do read. I'm glad to see the positive upswing in your posts friend! :)

  5. @Jessie: Welcome back! Another blogger buddy (Cindy@Language is Wine Upon the Lips) turned me onto making these early on and it helps. Thanks for the add! I added you right back! I love your take on things and all your crazy faces!

  6. I'm a big fan of naps as well. You have good taste!
