A NEW FRIEND!

Guess what awesome ness happened to me today?!

I took Annie to playpals and was just sitting there when a mom came in who I knew kind of because I had met her last week at playpals. She came over and sat by me and we started chatting, and she invited me and Annie over to her place for lunch!
YAY! HOORAY!
So we went over there and had a really nice time. There was another mom there too and her son and the kids played and we just hung out. I was kind of nervous about lunch (tuna melts!) but I had mine without cheese and I think I passed myself off as normal :)! Anyways, she gave me her number and we will probably do something again sometime. She even talked about having my family for dinner some night or something.

Guys, this is huge! I am not someone who easily makes friends, and it's extra hard to meet people since I dont work or go to school. Pretty much the only people I know in my new town are from church, and you know how that is going. So I am really pleased with myself that I have the ability to make a friend. That just enlarges my world SO MUCH! She is really neat, too. She lived in Scotland for a few years and just moved back. She just has a really lively and fun personality. I guess I will call her "M" so I can stop saying "she".

I feel especially happy that this happened today of all days because I have a huge zit. Ok that makes no sense. Let me explain. I have this HUGE ZIT that wont go away. It is ruining my whole face and I was so discouraged this morning that I didn't even want to do the whole foundation-blush-eyeshadow-eyeliner-mascara thing. I just figured whats the point of going to all that work. nothing is going to cover this zit. So I just put a dab of concealor on and a little mascara and that was it. Then I got worried that no one at playpals would talk to me because I am just too ugly without all my makeup on. Well, I thought, this will be kind of like an experiment. We'll see what happens. Sooo...not only did M talk to me, she invited me over! She must not judge people on appearance, which makes her even cooler.

So far, today has been an awesome day!

One thing that is not awesome, though, is that I turned on my furnace today for the first time this season and it STINKS! You know, that smell a furnace makes when It hasn't been used in a long time. It's giving me a huge headache. Ugh.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING!!!!

You know why she approached you, talked to you, and invited you over? It's becuase she wants to be your friend! It's not just that you want her to be your friend - she also wants you to be her friend. Because you are that cool!

:)

I'm happy happy happy for you!

That's great news! About the friend not the zit. And that is so good that you ate in front of others. That can be super scary.

Congrats!

Yay for making new friends! I know how hard that can be. And I HATE zits, especially big ones - they can ruin whole days, even weeks, haha.
