I have all kinds of shit to do. Today is belly casting day and Em is spending the night. So I should be cleaning up. I just really don't want to.
The Renee advised me to go do three things and I agreed that was a good idea.
So I'm going to do this, get a Coke, and wander around.
I DID get an email from Girl Crush this morning. It made me remember that someone here asked if she knows that she's my girl crush and I never answered that.
I'm pretty sure she does know. In fact, I think we're both so open about our liking of each other that it probably shouldn't even be called a crush anymore, we're probably officially an item.
It's a weird friendship because it has kind of been like that from the start. She sat by me at a "mom's night out" my playgroup had and I saw her "Realtor" pin (that I've teased her about a few times since) and gave her my comedy bit on real estate and talked her ear off about the market. Then LK came and I made everyone play musical chairs so I could sit by her and didn't really get to talk to Girl Crush again that night.
But then, she emailed me the next day (through my group's email) and said she had enjoyed meeting me and that I was really funny and it would be fun to go have a drink or three together.
Yep, she was courting me. Of course I was flattered and sent something witty back and things have just progressed from there. We joke as comfortably as friends do and seem to be mesh well. She knows, shares, and understands my phone phobia and she's a semi-sucky friend like I am, as in loses track of time and forgets to respond to your email promptly but shows back up soon enough and misses you and acts like you spoke yesterday. It's become somewhat of a contest to see who slacks the longest on the return of communication.
So we pretty much just skipped all of the superficial/artificial "I'm normal and on top of things and not scared of the phone" bullshit and got right down to it, love me or leave me style.
She invited me over for dinner on Friday but without the kids. As much as I LOVE this without the kids business...it's not always easy for me to do. When I asked her if she wanted to go camping she said yes, but let's ditch the kids. LOL. I almost asked her this morning if she wanted to go to Disney with us in September if we go, but I wasn't sure if that was too much too fast. And we really can't ditch the kids for that one.
I also REALLY want to tell her about the closet because I know she would love it and some people think it's a fun way of keeping up with my life while I'm on my distracted/busy phases, but I just don't know, especially now that there has been so much talk of it and her. I'm sure she'd be flattered and amused, but the whole thing is a little weird.
Okay, now I've REALLY got to go clean up. Seriously. Like, the clock is ticking. Ugh.
