I remember singing that song in Girl Scouts, zillions of years ago, during the (brief) time in which I was a Girl Scout. Even though a lot of the other messages they tried to stick in our heads didn't stick with me, that one did. I've always tried to stay in touch with good friends from my past.
Jersey Jay is one such friend. We met when he hired me to work at Game Keeper, back before it was purchased by Wizards of the Coast (and before WotC was subsequently purchased by Hasbro and flushed down the toilet, but I'm not bitter or anything). To be completely honest, that was one of my favorite jobs of all time, and it was so great precisely because of the good friends I made there.
That was also the first really diverse group of friends I've ever had. There was J, who is both conservative and religious (my polar opposites), K, my first openly gay friend, P, who deals with drug addiction, B, the Japanese-obsessed music guy, and J, the 40 year old virgin. I'm not sure exactly who I was in the group, until the end when I think I would have been classified as "the uber-controlling psycho manager." It was a rough time for me, what can I say?
I can't deny that all of those friendships touched me deeply, and I am grateful to have had them. My friendship with Jay, however, was the strongest, and even though we hadn't talked in a long time, we recently got back in touch. I'm glad. Despite our differences, we always had a good time together and I don't think he realizes it, but he was there for me when I needed him the most. In fact, he saved me from making a terrible awful no good very bad mistake.
Since my days at Wizards, I've made quite a few wonderful and important new friends. Even so, I'll always have a soft spot for my old WotC gang, and I hope they feel the same about me.
This year, my vacation plans include San Diego, California, and an all-inclusive somewhere in Mexico. I'm very excited, and the kids are really looking forward to both our trips. However, I'm already starting to think about next year.
I really want to travel to Europe. As a parent, I feel very strongly about making sure that my children see the world, and there are so many interesting things to see, overseas. I'm not sure if we will be able to pull off a major European vacation as long as I'm sharing custody with my ex - our agreement only allows for week long trips, and I feel like we would need to spend at least two weeks in Europe in order to do it "right."
Even though the airfare would be killer, I am thinking that we might need to take multiple trips in order to see everything we want to see. Germany - specifically Auschwitz - is somewhere I would really like to visit. It would be a very somber trip, but overall I think it would be excellent.
I would also like to visit France and stay in a fancy French hotel. I studied French in high school and college, and I think it would be fun to try to converse with native speakers. My kids would be awfully impressed with me!
Have any of my readers done Europe in small doses? I would love to hear more about your experiences.
The older women in my family seem to be blessed with beautiful skin. My grandmother was 92 when she passed away, and she always looked much younger than her years. My mother is 60 and often gets mistaken for my sister (yeah, I'm not sure how to feel about that particular compliment)! I should get to rest on my laurels and feel confident that I, too, will have great skin when I get older.
Unfortunately, my skin is prone to breaking out, and I am trying to take better care of it lately. I don't have acne, but some of the products I use are designed as acne treatment, and they work very well to even out my sometimes oily, sometimes dry skin. I don't know how well they would work on a severe case, but they are definitely good for my situation.
I am also a big fan of healthy skin care products. I use a lot of Burt's Bees for makeup and also as a moisturizer, and I like that it doesn't feel heavy on my face. I went for many years without wearing any makeup at all, and it is taking some getting used to for me to wear it now. That's why I try hard to find products that feel clean and natural - otherwise, I want to clean them off as soon as they go on.
I hesitate to recommend anything much, but I'm open to suggestions if any of my readers have them. What sort of skin care regiment do you have?
Since I brought my dog home, I've kept him on the diet prescribed by his breeder, and he seems to be doing very well. The vet can't say enough about how healthy he is (which is reassuring to me since we had a fiasco with a sick puppy who died after two weeks with us last year). However, since I've started working on training him, I've wanted to find some good recipes for dog biscuits. I want to keep him motivated without filling him up on things that aren't really nutritious.
I recently discovered this great pet food site which explains the benefits of homemade dog food. They also have a great selection of recipes for doggy cookies and even chicken feet - although those will not be appearing in my kitchen any time soon! I am going to do some baking for Benjamin this weekend. I bet the kids will enjoy helping!
Won't he be a happy pup?
