So much to get done this week. We got back from the bay area yesterday. YEAH…I have my babies back. Had a great time with my high school bff’s Julie and Dawn. Spent lots of time at Julie’s pool. My amazing best friend and I have gone through so much together since high school. Just this time last year her two daughters were in a fatal car crash. The sixteen year old driver of the other car was killed. Her girls were life flighted to UC Davis Children’s hospital and it was a horrible experience. I love her girls like they are my own and walking in the ICU to see them lying in full body casts and a zillion tubes was excruciating as a mom and as someone who loves them dearly. They have come a long way and seeing them so happy and vibrant playing with my kids was like a breath of fresh air. It made me all the more grateful for the many blessings in my life, including them. I miss the bay area already but am hoping to be back there permanently soon.
