Globe receives an honor
It's been too long since I've seen Jaime--almost a year! She and Zackary braved the airlines to visit us and break up January's monotony. What did we do? Well, a whole lot of nothing, really. But it was the best nothing I'd had in a long time. We did get pedicures, and would have hit the local day spa if it hadn't been closed due to water damage. And we gave Jaime and Zackary haircuts (my hairdresser did Jaime's, and Chad did Zackary's). Oh, and we got to watch and make fun of The Bachelor together in person instead of via text. Jaime helped us sort through Riley's baby clothes, and she donated some clothes for the new baby. And I returned her maternity clothes, which she needs now, and which mostly don't fit me anyway (we normally wear the same size, but she's a thinner pregnant woman than I). She helped me test a recipe for Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes. The kids played, and Mason and Zackary drove each other crazy. And we talked, and talked, and talked. And then she had to go home too soon. And I again marveled at how lucky I am to have such a close and true friend.
