I do so adore Emily Dickinson.
I simply must have an entire entry about how much my friends rock
Today, I had a surprise Mothers' Day party. I got to see lots of friends, eat very good food (I'm still drooling. It was SO good), and relax. It was great.
It's a huge relief knowing that I have such wonderful friends. The time "alone" (I'm using quotes because come on, with three kids, I'm never really alone) can be scary, monotonous, boring, and so very very long. Friends make all the difference. Dh hasn't even been gone a full week yet and they've already started on their way to sainthood. :-)
