Just when you think you know everything there is about a friendship, life proves me wrong. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been in this funk of wanting to just be by myself and be a little bit of a loner. That’s highly unusual if you know me. I was even standoffish from my best friend and there was no wrong doing on her part at all. I questioned everything. So, I just took myself out of the social scene.
After a week or so she invited me out for a drink one night. It felt different. I thought the feeling was because I felt needed. I thought she knew I needed her there for me and I still think she knew I was going through something and she could not pin point it. I was right about our “date” being different but for all of the wrong reasons. I’m getting chill bumps now just typing this. She needed me just as much as I needed her. The meeting she called was an announcement. Honestly I don’t do well with being surprised and I over analyze so many things that as soon as I walked up and saw my wine glass and her water glass….I knew. I was about to become an unofficial aunt to my best friend’s first baby.
Be on the look out folks. My Pinterest board is about to BLOW UP with baby goodies! I called dibs on the baby shower and you know that it is going to be awesome and mainly because of the invention of Pinterest. We’ve still got 8 months to go!
