Coffee time again.......it seems like it hasn't been a whole day since I had my coffee. Days off from work go by fast. Yesterday I started painting my chest of drawers. I need to put another coat on and paint the drawer fronts. I wish I would have painted this stuff a long time ago. It looks so much better and new. LAst night we watched The Women. I didn't know that was a remake. The original was made in the 30's or so. I'd like to see it too. It is very much a woman's movie, but Lee watched it with me and he did laugh out loud too. I give it 3.5 out of 5. IT really made me want close girlfriends. I just don't have any like that. But you can't miraculously produce built in buddies that have known you for years and have known everything about you or everything you did over that time frame. You just have them or you don't. I guess it because I have had mostly male buddies- in my really young years I did everything with John and if I called and chatted on the phone or cooked up spending the night- it was at John's, and then John eventually moved away, then got married.......then I had Bonnie and VAlerie- who lived states away, so that wasn't a typical close girlfriends all the time kind of thing- it was long distance. And Angela and Leila were mixed in- we did pretty much everything together for a few years...then They both married a moved away....... Jennifer.......we did alot together too. She since has Moved away...... and then there were the Scott years........ we were doing something pretty much all the time and I'd say out of all my friends, he was one that if something happend or I heard something- I had to call Scott immediatly to talk about it. OR we would get mad at each other and fight and quit speaking, but then the next week we would make up and be fine. More like a girlfriend relationship in the movies. LOL. If someone were to have good embarassing ' dirt ' stories to tell on me- that would be Scott. LOL! But anyway.... he's gone gone gone too...... Finally I came to my Lee, well, he always was in and out and a constant in the background since I was about 10......... so WE started doing lots of stuff together since pretty much everyone around us kind of fell away.....and we were in similar emotional situations.........well AHA! I figured out how to keep my friend around! I just married him! So anyway....... I have LEe to watch my stupid chic flicks with and who colors my hair....LOL. He'll have to do. :o) Meanwhile I'm working on doing more female oriented things and doing them WITH females....lol. IT sounds so scientific.
Those are my deep thoughts for the day- time for a biscuit.....

It's sad when your friends move away or you can't hang out with them anymore for other reasons. :( We all need to get together and have a girls day or night out sometime...movie, eat out, scrapbook..whatever.
