Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Tribute Saturday: My Best Friends

Donnetta over at Life In The Fast Lane is hosting Tribute Saturday. Head over there to participate!
You may remember the Fabulous Miss Weiner, center, from this post. On the left is the Surprising Miss Notansmith, whose name came from something she said about herself that I won't repeat without consent. (the wig was part of her disguise)

The picture was taken on my 30th birthday. Miss Weiner came in from two hours away, and Miss Notansmith swore she couldn't make it in from across the country. Then she was the first to show up... preceding screams and jumping, which may have frightened the neighbors.

The three of us have been friends since middle school. Miss Notansmith joined the air force and travelled the world, and is now married with two lovely children, living way too far away from me. Miss Weiner went to college, had many many college experiences (ehem*cough*ehem), and earned her degree in psychology (a dream for her) before settling down with her hubby and two charming kiddos. She, also, lives way too far away from me.

Somehow, we manage to keep coming back to each other, no matter what. Without them, it would have been a much different life.

I love you and miss you both!
