Busy days....

And as if I don't have enough going on...... yesterday the best girl friend of my daughter came to stay with me, together with her 3-year old little boy! I know, I know... it's hard for me to say no! lol

I've known Carina forever... she grew up with Regina, they went to school together, and she was a member of my children's dance class. She is now married with 3 kids, but the marriage is shakey and has been on and off for some time. She has lost soooo much weight (she was never heavy to begin with) and needs to get away from home for a couple of days. Since Regina has no room to put her up, she asked if I would. And, as I said, I can't say no!

I had to work in the morning. Her hubby brought them to Regina's place during her lunch break (she had to work all day as well), then I picked them up there. Her hubby is all for the visit. I had the guest room all set up so that's no problem.

I had to be gone all day Saturday, but she visited with Regina and other girl friends from her home town (she actually doesn't live far from here, but has no car ... her hubby doesn't earn much and needs the car himself).

Carina may also need a good "neutral" girl talk with someone who's been almost a mom to her (me). Her own mom died when she was young of complications with MS. I knew her mom and was a witness to her decay.... and I can only imagine how hard it was for Carina. Her dad and older brother brought her up. Now her dad also has MS! Anyway, I'll see how it goes.

Those who know me know that I'm always willing to help if asked and if I can, whether it's in real life, like in this situation, or in internet (ah, the JS for Dummies days, layouts, etc. ... and later KCL).

Saturday, as mentioned, I was gone most of the day. I had a class of over 40 people to teach. It's a class for airfield traffic advisors. It was fun (*sigh* all those guys! lol) and went quite well. I had planned to visit a lady pilot's event at a town in the complete opposite direction, but I was too tired so I came home instead.

On Sunday I'll be visiting my son, together with Regina and family, possibly bringing Carina and her boy along, to celebrate Priyasha's second birthday! I visited them the other day....

little chocolate face heehee
Her mom arrived back from Mumbai with Shiana on Thursday.

Did I mention I'm busy??



  1. You sure ARE busy! Good grief girl, my heads spinning.LOL.But it is true of you and the help you give:)

    Have a lovely day,girl.

  2. Grass won't be growing under your feet any time soon, that's for sure. I tend to go in spurts, too. I'm busy as heck for a while (like right now), then it will slack off and I can relax a while. Hope you get some relaxing time for yourself soon. :)


  3. Without a doubt you are the go to friend for everything.

    We are all so lucky to have you as a friend.

    In Fact, if i thought about the type of friend you are it is a simple answer.

    You are "the friend that nobody would ever want to lose..."

    That is the best kind of friend in the entire universe. I'm proud to call you my friend.
