As I think of my girlfriends, I think about who I go to for what. I am pretty sure we all have friends who play different roles in our lives. See if you can figure out who fits where in your life.

I have the work bestie. Whether you work full time or part time, you have that friend who can relate, good or bad with what you go through 4 - 8 hours per day. You chat about all the office gossip and commiserate about there being no Splenda in the kitchen. You don't necessarily get together outside of work, but while you are work, there's almost nothing you won't share. When they're not there, you notice right away, and if (gasp!) they give their 2 week notice, you're devastated. How will you get through the day? Who will you email back and forth with, til you get a message from Outlook saying you've reached capacity in your inbox, please delete any unnecessary emails? Who will you "office diet" with, while ordering cheeseburger clubs from the delicious yet greasy restaurant down the street? Who will you roll your eyes at during meetings?
I have the friend who is my therapist. This poor thing, gets me at my worst. Sometimes she's lucky enough to get me at my best ... when I'm funny and witty and smart and beautiful.... ahem, where was I? But other times she gets me when I'm cranky, bitchy or crying. And she always says the right thing. It doesn't matter if I am being completely irrational. It doesn't matter if I'm wrong (which is really never the case). It doesn't matter who I'm talking about, she's automatically on my side, agreeing with me, bitching with me and plotting revenge with me. I bet you wish you had a vengeful therapist like I do!
|Still friends to this day!|
I have my blog buds too ... friends I've made since starting My Twin*tastic Life. Friends who have been supportive and honest. Friends who have so patiently answered my silly questions about how to get rid of this line, or add that line. Friends who have missed me when I've been gone, and welcomed me back when I resurfaced.
I have the friend who acted as my significant other when neither of us had one. We spent weekends together shopping, eating, going to the movies, eating, looking for love, eating, exercising, eating less ... you get my drift. It was kind of like Eat, Pray, Love, but just the eating part. In Massachusetts.
I have the newest bestie, who I've only known her for a couple of years now. But she has been there for me during one of the hardest times in my life. I have trusted her with my kids, have seen her show up and be there when it counts, and know that she "gets" it, which, while unfortunate, has been hugely comforting. Although we haven't known each other very long, we have more in common than many of my older friends. She's that friend you feel like was put in your life for a reason, the one who was meant to fit in just the right part of your life, for just the right reason, at just the right time.
See how lucky I am? I am surrounded by the best pals a gal could ask for. I hope all of my friends reading this know who they are and realize how much I love and appreciate them. What would I do without you? I'd be an unstable, fashion disaster of a Mother, who always brings Chips Ahoy to the school bake sales. I love you guys!
