The Loss of an Old Friend

I found out an old friend, from the days of my depression, passed away from a rare form of cancer. She wasn’t even 40, if I remember her age correctly. I had been thinking a lot about her lately, but we haven’t spoken since about 1999/2000. In fact, I don’t even know if she wouldRead more

It’s Official, Today I Turn 40

Today is my 40th birthday.  I am taking the day off of work, getting a massage, getting a facial, and getting a pedicure.  I am going out for ice cream with knitting friends later this evening.  This is turning into a month long celebration. My birthday is my favorite holiday.  I don’t really care aboutRead more
