I just found out that my friend Court from high school is currently expecting baby #3 into her family...(she already has a little boy, and a cute baby girl.) Congrats Court!
One of my very best friends from high school has just been accepted to HARVARD on full scholarship....this is of course after he has led a fulfilling couple of years traveling the world, graduating from college, having a functional serious relationship, learning to speak fluent Japanese, and teaching English to those unfortunate people who do not know it. I'm impressed, proud and insanely jealous.
My best friend in the world is one of those people who religiously goes to church, devotes her time to god and family, volunteers at the rescue mission, works in the church nursery, is an elegant, beautiful, professional ballroom dancer, is constantly one of those people you can call to count on to better your day, and is dating a wonderful man I am sure will propose in the next month or so. She is one of those people that you wish you could emulate but know that you do not possibly have that amount of energy.
My friend Jed...who was my constant companion in college, sat with me countless days when I was hungover and listened to me whine (while bringing me crackers, soup and ginger ale...), would allow me to sing Celine Dion at the top of my lungs in public, was always the peanut butter to my jelly, and one of those guys you can count on no matter what....( "hey its raining, I'm 10 miles from campus, its 3am and my wiper blade went flying off my car...will you get out of bed, go to walmart, buy me one and come put it on my car in the torrential downpour?")...is GETTING MARRIED this May. He is with the love of his life, this adorable little, tiny blonde, thing who loves him uncontrollably and has a cutie-patootie little girl of her own....who Jed is the perfect Daddy to even though it isn't his.......and no one deserves to be happy and in love more than this guy. Amazing.
My college roommate is happily married, going back to school to be a physicians assistant, and thinking about babies.......
My best friend from college is currently married, looking to buy a house with her amazing husband, and is definitely my nominee for Mommy of the year. She has an adorable little boy who I love completely, she is constantly running around doing wonderful mommy things, she doesn't burn the cookies, and she makes the most delicious food I have ever tasted. Her child watches baby Einstein, and is probably smarter than I am......She's amazing in every way, and yet I know that when I have kids she won't look down on me for feeding my kids M&Ms for breakfast and setting the baby in front of the Maury show with me in the mornings.
..all that being said....
I am a waitress at a bar that is going out of business in a crappy college town. Thank you very much.
