Because good friends are invaluable

My stress level this afternoon was a little on the high side.  I emailed my friend, Diana.  We all have a friend whom we can count on to help us calm down, laugh, or vent with...and she is mine.

As we were talking back and forth, I said "Why is it that the 'jackass gene' is so predominant in men, hmm?!"

She said "Yeah!  Wait.....we married them, what does that say?"

I said "True....."

Then she said "I got it!  We're Saints because we took pity on them and married them!  Yeahhhhhh...."

I said "You may get Sainthood.  Me?  Not so much..."

She emailed me back. "GIIIRL with what you put up with YOUR man and the advice you give me on mine (well except for the occasional MFERS and WTFH), I'd say you're a shoe in."

This is where I started crying, and emailed her back telling her I loved her.

Mental, much?  LOL

  4. Sounds like we have both now had an official chance to get most of the pre-Christmas being mad at our men thing out of the way.   LOL maybe we will get a bigger present under the tree if they think we are mad at them?!  Many hugs!!

  8. Yes, we all have that kind of friend, or should have, any way.  Not sure venting to a friend is mental, if so, I guess I qualify.  I'm just glad you have someone you trust to talk to.

  11. Amy is a saints name, kind of.
    When she was young, Saint Amata of Assisi rejected God and rebelled against morality. Eventually her aunt, Saint Clare of Assisi, converted her and brought the girl into her religious order.

    Arent I clever.
    :o)
    Well no. I got it from the interwebthing.
