100th Post and a Give Away!

Believe it or not…I have been putting off making my 100th post becauseI wanted something worthy to post about.  I know…silly.  Well, I have something worthy.  This morning I spoke with an old friend.  D was my best friend in high school.  He is a year older than me and I thought he was soooo cool.  He went to college first and was responsible for me meeting Henry.  D was also my first room mate in my first apartment.  For a while D, Henry and me were always together.  We had the best times.  Then, about 7 years ago something happened and we just quit talking.  I think I was not as good of friend as I should have been and neither was Henry as the two of us got so involved with our lives together and we pushed D….not on purpose.  Then he was pretty unhappy with us and then I got my feelings hurt..and so on and so on. 

Today Henry called him for something else.  They talked and then I talked to D.  He sounded very happy, different, but the same and not angry.  When I actually got to speak to him it really made me realize how much I miss him.  It sounds like the three of us will get the opportunity to try to rekindle our friendship and THAT is worthy of my 100th post.

Just to make sure my knitting buddies celebrate with me….I am going to give away some yarn and a book to go with it.  So…leave a comment and I will have one of my monkey girls choose a name from a hat.  (I have no idea how to use a random number generator and do not plan on learning right now.)  You have until Friday to leave a comment!

    Reconnecting with an old friend sounds like the best way to begin a new year. All the best to you in rebuilding that relationship!

    One of my favorite movies ever, When Harry Met Sally, has a wonderful ending scene about what’s the meaning of that song Auld Lang Syne.
    Harry: What does this song mean? My whole life, I don’t know what this song means. I mean, ‘Should old acquaintance be forgot’? Does that mean that we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we happened to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot?
    Sally: Well, maybe it just means that we should remember that we forgot them or something. Anyway, it’s about old friends.

    I think what a better way to say Happy New Year and truly mean it than to rekindle friendships. Here’s to everyone taking a few minutes to remember those who truly matter and WHY!

    Thank you for sharing this post — and all the 99 previous and the next 99 to come. Thank you for sharing yourself.

    You are the cutest. I think the moon & the new year has brought people out of the wood work. I had a similar experience recently.

    Tell the girls to PICK ME!
    Much love,
