true friends

Wednesday afternoon I got a text from my very good friend Shayla basically telling me to come over tomorrow (Thursday) and let her make me lunch and hang out for a while. Well who am I to say no to that? So yesterday, after waking up and feeding the baby, I packed up and headed over to her house in my pajamas. I spent the day laying on the couch, watching silly TV, talking about anything and nothing, and being fed. Cookies were made, my baby was held, and it was basically the best day I've had in several weeks. There is just something so relaxing to me about NOT being in my house. Even though I'm not doing anything lately, there is an unconscious feeling in the back of my head saying "you SHOULD be folding the laundry... doing the dishes... paying the bills... etc etc." Also, she is just one of those people that I have a natural connection with, in that we can pick up anytime and talk about anything. There is not such thing as an awkward silence with us. (Of course, Corbin was an angel and slept the ENTIRE DAY. And he's been making up for it this past 24 hours.)

I'll have to do that again soon. It was sooo relaxing. I don't think she realized what she was getting herself into...

I'm so grateful for the amazing helpful people in my life! I would go crazy without you!
