Happy Friday!

I am so excited! My best friend in the whole world is coming to visit me today. She should be rolling in here around noon. Diana and I have known each other over 25 years. Back in August of 1982, she had only been working at her new job a couple of days when she went to the front desk to escort another new employee upstairs. We were on the elevator and something cracked us up. We were destined to be buds. It didn't take long to get us talking to each other. We quickly learned we were both single mom's of daughter's (she - 1, me - 2), we had gotten married at the exact time, day and year back in 1972 (and were divorced about the same time), we were the very same age (only 19 days apart), we were living in the same apartment complex (of a big city like Omaha, NE) and we had the same warped sense of humor. Through the years, we learned we had so much more in common. We have gone through everything, including moving away from each other to becoming grandma's. Nothing can keep us apart. We always pick right back up wherever we left off. Whether we've been away for a month of 5 years. It is the only true "contstant" in our lives. Everyone needs a friend like Diana. She will be here until Monday, so I don't know how much blogging I will get done! But I will try to keep everyone on top of what we are doing. WOOHOO! I can't wait!
