The month of Will starts tomorrow. December. I have one night booked to go out with my book club and that’s pretty much it. I’m looking forward to it. November was a month chock full of activities for both of us. And while the two of us have tons of plans in December, they’re all together.
But I was so lucky in November to have two girls weekends away. Two different groups of awesome chicks. Two wintery getaways. I felt guilt…for about twenty minutes when I left for the second one….and then I just enjoyed myself.
I tried to write a poem this morning as I sipped my coffee and waited for the girls to wake up. It started like this.
I may not have a partner or a love of my life.
But I have all my girls and and an ex-work wife.
We may not make out on a rug in front of a roaring fire.
But we’re there for each other when the situation is dire.
That was as far as I got because one of the girls got up and then the chatting begins.
I have nothing profound to add here. No earth shattering revelations. I just have peace. I was driving home with my friend Tanya today and she said ‘you must feel in a pretty good place right now,’ and I quickly agreed. But I was more thinking of the embarrassment of riches I have when it comes to my friends. How my cheeks hurt from laughing so much and how they all make my life, and Will’s life, so much richer.
So if you haven’t lately, pick up the phone and call your girlfriend. Actually text her because no one likes talking on the phone do they? Anyway call them just to say you love them.
To all of you beyotches of mine, you know who you are, in the pictures and beyond, I want you to know that you ROCK. Oh and that I’ll see you in January.
