Trees, Secrets and Ann

Our new trees for the backyard came today. Nathan and I watched as two 18 foot oak trees were lifted by a crane like machine and carried to their new resting places in the rear of the yard. New sod comes Friday..........instant yard. Got to love landscapers.

I finally did something to set my mind at ease about a friendship gone sour. I have to say I never "stopped" being friends with anyone before. Maybe I've lost touch, but never just ended a friendship. We've been friends for over 10 years, hit it off the first day we met. She was one of the most supportive friends I had during my illnesses. The only problem, she's so unhappy with her life I found the negativity was getting to me. We had a slight disagreement back in the fall and she just wrote me off. I didn't make much effort to reconcile because honestly I didn't want to deal with her constant unhappiness with her life. However, I find myself thinking of her often and wonder how she is doing. Jake's mom has been telling me about The Secret for years. Then a couple of weeks ago it's on Oprah. It resonated with me. I ordered two copies of the DVD, thinking I'd give the extra copy to someone. Well, today I packaged it up for my friend. Not sure we'll ever be friends again, but I'm hopeful she'll find the happiness that has eluded her her entire life. I am at peace with myself now.

I hit my favorite store, Ann Taylor Loft, last night to pick up a couple of things for the cruise. Not long and I'll be sunning myself (with SPF 50) pool side sipping a margarita.

I can't wait to see the yard!

So I should read The Secret, huh?

So excited about your cruise!
