My bestest friend just left. She stayed with us for a few days and we had such a wonderful time. Her kids are getting older, 7 and 8. The interaction between my kids and hers was a little haggard at times, but overall things were great. We managed to meet them at the zoo for an afternoon. We went swimming and fed the ground squirrels. It was much too short, though. I really have to stop having babies so that I get go and visit her. There is just no one else that I can see once a year and talk to like I see her everyday. I miss you already.
