I'm So Bummed
I got the call around dinner time on the 1st of November. A friend of mine called with some very exciting news. She was going to paste it on Facebook, but there were a chosen few people who she wanted to make sure heard the news straight from her.
My friend had found out a few weeks ago that she is moving. (sad sigh). Her husband decided to take a job based in Virginia. (another sad sigh). Since I have moved to Rhode Island I have met some wonderful people. The friends I have made I have made because of my boys. I met this friend 10 years ago when I joined a mommies group through my hospital. My son was six months old at the time.
From the time I joined, four of us from the group have been inseparable. We had plays dates all week long and it was great. We went to each others house, the zoo, I swear I lived at Mystic Aquarium. As time went on and our kids started school we have seen less and less of each other. But we have Girls Night Out regularly, okay so some times we lapse and should have gotten together sooner, but the point is, we still make time for each other. The last time we went out we went for dinner in Newport and a Comedy Club. So much fun.
I'm so happy for her exciting new journey in life and I know that we will still talk to each other and hopefully visit each other, but knowing she is no longer right here in Rhode Island sucks.
So this post is goes out to the ones we love that are far away. You might be far away, but you are always close to our hearts!
