Here I am!
Here I am!
What are you a scrappin?
Nothing much a happenin!
*okie waits for the applause and upon not hearing any shrugs her shoulders and smiles because she likes her little song even if no one else does*
So yeah.......haven't been scrappin. Nope, nothing, nada........ZILCH! I could give you a million reasons and at least 10 out of those million would be true and good!
To be honest I have been a little down the last few days and haven't been able to get into the swing of doing any crafting. I know some of you are probably familiar with my Naomi stories. For those just joining the program - Naomi is my next door neighbor and is also a very dear friend. She will be moving this week to an assisted living center. I think she will really like it once she gets there and the place does look nice but I feel like I am losing my best friend!
There will be no more quick runs next door to share exciting news. There will be no more stomping next door to vent so I don't kill someone. There will be no lesiurely walks to next door just to say hi. There will be no more trips to the grocery store, Walmart, the little meat market on the corner or other places I went for her. There will be no more Wednesdays where we go over the grocery ads and make our lists. Heck even as I am typing this right now I am fighting back tears. Who knew I would get so attached to that ol' ornery woman!
Naomi won't be far, maybe 3 miles from my house..but she won't be next door anymore either! I know the move is what is best for her but I am feeling a little selfish and self pity right now. I know in a few days I will take a deep breath, suck it up and know that everything will be okay, but until then....I am feeling just a little sad and maybe even a little lonely.
