Friend Friday

I can't explain to you the feeling I get on Fridays. The prospect of two whole days ahead of me without work crap is the best feeling ever. And no gym until Sunday - so two days in a row of not having to cardio myself to death. Fridays also mean that I don't have to wake up early on Saturdays, so I am able to take one of my perscription sleeping pills and get pretty much the only night of sleep I get all week. Fridays are just the best days!

And I'm feeling extra good today, because I'm excited about some friend prospects here in my new town. I joined up with this social group to force myself to get out and meet peope. I met these few girls that all hang out, and they have accepted me as one of their own. We've even taken to calling each other between events, and I've been invited out tonight with them for a girl's night. It's surprising how we all kind of gelled right away, like we've known each other for years. And I feel like I'm part of the popular kids. Mostly, I'm just hoping that it continues and I have some new people that I like to hang out with, and can call for shopping or dinner or something.

That's great you've found some new friends...just don't forget about us, k? ;o)

I'm amazed at what folks learn in college. You the twinky thing... Me how to toss tortillias like a frisbee and my cousin how to chill beer quickly. Life skills!

I know how you feel about Friday! I love my freedom of having the weekend for me!

Good for you for getting out. I belong to two social groups here in Toronto. One is just for women and we have fun doing different things. Last weekend 15 of us went away for the whole freakin' weekend! Whoohoo!!!

I tried that, but the girls wouldn't accept me :)

Sounds a little like Mean Girls. I love that movie.

Anthony said...

Sounds like you're enjoying your new locale.
I'm usually in the gym on Friday's. It's much easier to get around, since it's pretty empty. I try to schedule around going on Monday, when the world beats a path to its door.

Oh how wonderful that you're meeting new people and making a whole slew of new friendships....and hoping they'll become lifelong friendships for you Carmen!!

Hope your weekend was super.
