We just need to stop for now & change our rhythms to match up again

Catching this cold, or whatever, from my super-friend K is totally worth all the fun we’ve had the last few days.  We have been having so many laughs, eating so much good food and having such great conversation.  Last night (or maybe this morning?) I told her that I wanted pretty eyes. She tried to tell me to have retinal replacement surgery. What she actually told me to have, though, was "rectal replacement surgery."  Sometime while we were laughing (probably 20 minutes straight) she blurted out "armitilly," which is a word I used one time, trying to say army or military. We get so stupid when we are around each other for long periods of time. This is why (well, one of the reasons) I can not move back to Kansas. I think I would die if I were 9 hours away from her. Seriously, I think I would become really depressed and die. I also wouldn’t have anyone to make tacos & breakfast food with me all the time. Nobody else tries as hard as she does to entertain me, to make me a happy person (and I don’t even know if she tries, or if it just happens). Sometimes I feel like moving to Colorado was a mistake, because my life seems to have gotten further from where I want it since I moved here. When I think about time spent with K, I am okay with my life not yet being where I want it to be.

And of course, the other main reason I can't leave is my other best friend (and sister), Jamie. Right when I found out she was moving to Colorado I decided I wanted to move here. I was going to move here with John after we got married. I can't handle the thought of being 9 hours away from her, especially now that she is the mother of 2 wonderful girls (well, one and three quarters).  :) I think it would have been great to move out here on my own, because I wanted to live closer to her.  I guess the fact that I moved out here for a different reason is okay.

Kay and I have been watching a lot of Grey's Anatomy lately. It is such a great show.  K is always introducing me to shows I haven't seen so I can fall in love with them.  It has been nice going over there several times per week to hang out with her (and usually baby Jaz).  K started school today & I'm excited for her.  I'm glad she's not working, because it means we have more time to spend together. I am so thankful to have found a friend that has the same interests & taste in things as myself. I don't know how I lived before I met her. I guess I was just never happy & never got hugs.

Anyway... that is life right now.  I am still looking into vet tech schools and trying to figure out my life. If I start school in June or August like I plan, I may go stay with Jamie from April until then. I think it would be fun to spend more time with her and the girls, and I would feel really great helping out with the babies.
