Weekend UpdateOctober 15, 2007
I hate doing a list of crap that I did over the weekend. You don’t care and frankly, now that it’s over I don’t care either.
So I’m going to try hard not to ever do that.
However, I woke up this Friday with a wicked head/jaw ache. It’s only gotten worse. Now, I can’t open my mouth especially to eat, yawn or nag. My husband says it’s a strike of luck. Wait ’till he wants a “kissy kissy” or ten. Who’ll be giggling with her mouth closed then?
I’m afraid it’s this. But Dr. Google is an evil source of info.
I don’t know whether I should harass the doctor or the dentist. I’m thinking dentist because it does have to do with my once gaping yap. But I just know, I’ll have a hard time getting in to see him. And I can’t wait until my regular appointment in November. Plus. No dental insurance. I’m in agony here…I hate not being able to yell and scream effectively.
Went to the mall yesterday. I never go to this particular mall especially so early on a Sunday morning. But my Aunt slept over because the Pro was on a boys night in the Hamptons…(Dog)…and she needed to see something in the Sleep Number store. Lucky thing is getting one of those beds. She’s a 40, like Jennifer Aniston.
That’s not the story.
We were walking through the mall and I caught a few people staring at us like we had 10 heads between us. This happens a lot so we were giggling about it. I thought it may have been my new messenger bag with skulls on the strap…(Maybe I’m too old for this thing?)…But turns out one group in particular approached us.
One woman asks, “Are you Janet?” I’m like “Yeah, What of it?” (It’s the mall, it’s Sunday morning…don’t fuck with me.)
She tells me who she is and I almost fall to the floor. Turns out, she’s a girl I used to hang out A-Lot with in High School. If you know me, you know I hated High School. But this particular girl and I became extremely close in Junior year. Of course we lost touch, bla bla…But I always think about her and even tried to contact her once a few years back through her Niece who was a fourth grade student in my school. Needless to say, I was so excited to see her and more excited that she recognized me…She looked totally different. Still just as gorgeous.
Then, I realize that the crowd around her is ALL of her kids. And her mother.
She said, she’s been pretty busy. No kidding. We both laughed and tried to do some catching up as quickly as you can with all those little people running around us in the mall. Fa was, of course, shy. Didn’t talk or even say hello.
Her kids, all over the place. And she was as cool as a cucumber. I just don’t get it.
I gave her my phone number and begged her to call me so we could get together and really catch up. I heard through her Niece, years ago that she had some tragedies in her life and I wanted to talk to her then, but she never answered back.
So what I’m trying to say is. Going someplace unexpectedly this weekend with a stiff face, sent a past friend my way. I just hope that she gets in touch again so we can fill each other in…I’d love to see her again.
I haven’t been blogging this weekend…I’m going to purge my reader and start fresh. I sincerely apologize to my regulars who haven’t heard from me this weekend…I’ll start again this week.
