.I was in the process of starting a new post this morning when a couple things happened, and I had to make a trip to Roswell. It's a long story and not all that interesting. The point is that I didn't finish the post until now. Here goes ....
Well, Caroline is such a party pooper. She told me that when she comes to visit me in the fall, her best friend S is coming with her. No, that's not why she's a party pooper. Just wait. I thought I would include that information in my post today, but if you notice the comments in the previous post, she couldn't stand it. She had to announce it herself! That's why the party pooper title goes to her. It's OK, I know she is excited that S has finally taken me and Caroline up on the offer. I'm excited, too, both to see Caroline and to meet S.
I'm looking forward to meeting her as she has become so important in Caroline's life. Caroline and I have been friends for a long time. We "met" in 1998 (is that right, C?) when she moved into the house next door to me. But I had known her since she was a little bitty squirt, maybe 4-6 years old, because the house had previously belonged to her grandmother, and she visited there frequently. I didn't see her for many years. She visited her grandmother, but didn't come into the yard to play, so was invisable to me. And then there she was!
Despite our ages, we have remained close since then. I was pleased to learn that Caroline was a Social Worker, my own chosen profession. We had a lot in common. I've been with C through a lot of her challenges, and when she found S, I felt like this is a person who would be a very positive participant in her life. And she has been. Now, several months later, Caroline is the happiest I've seen her since she was a little girl, and that makes me very happy, too. Soooooooo, I can't wait to meet S!
There you have it, the big announcement, the good news! C'mon, October!
