Missing You

no... this is not a tribute to 80's one-hit wonder John Waite.... nor is this a tribute to Troy. I mean, c'mon people... he's only been gone a day and a half!

This *IS* however, an open-ended letter to pretty much all of my friends.

I miss you.

I'm sorry I haven't been in touch lately. MONTHS have gone by since I've written or called. I've missed birthdays, anniversaries and one-year milestones of surviving parenthood.

I'm angry at myself, especially when I resolved to make my friends feel appreciated this year. I highly doubt lack of communication ranks high on the list of what to expect when expecting appreciation.

I've been meaning to ask you how it feels to be pregnant again, but whoops... you've already given birth.

I've been meaning to tell you how often I think about you, but then I forget to say something.

How *IS* the new job/baby/medication/house/boyfriend/car????

and as unbelievable as this may sound... I really do care. cause deep down I really do miss you. I miss our talks, our laughs, the ways you inspire me, the way we can be bored together, or talk about everything and nothing.

I DO have so much to share, but I've been tired and lazy... so I'm sorry.

It's not because you don't have a blog... though if you DID, I would probably only comment a fraction of the times I had something to say. Again... I've been lazy. so I'm sorry. so sorry.

Because I miss you. I really do.


side note... THANK you to all of you who continue to stop by and read about my life. Your hits and comments mean so much... and while they haven't made me be a better friend towards others... they remind me that it's time for me to pay my dues. so thank you.

See, I don't have many friends, which makes it much easier to be lazy. Much, much less keeping up I have to do!

Your friends know that you really mean what you say and if they don't, BOZA KNOWS!!

I miss you too!

It takes two to make a friendship work, and I promise I will start to pull my weight.

Love you!

What's this? Someone's left a bowl of Cheerios?

Please, allow me.

I think you know my take on the picture. Ever forward, kid.

SO freaky that you posted this today...I just popped on here to read up on you before I EMAILED you b/c it's been way too long since we've 'talked'. so *I* am just as bad as you, girlfriend.

Email coming your way in a bit!! :-)

I know exactly how you feel. Seems we never get to say or do what we want to with our friends.
