Tonight, I choose to sulk

Anthony is in California until Sunday afternoon. He is in Napa Valley visiting wineries and learning about the process of making wine for school. He has to design a winery for his final project in his studio class. I am happy that he got there safe and is having a good time learning, for learning is what he loves to do.

I on the other hand, am sulking. Recently I have thought about the relationships that I have in my life. Mostly I am thinking of a particular person that I generally was quite pleased to have in my life....Yes Jill, this blog is about you.

Jill is a friend from work, she has bright blond hair and a happy smile that is plastered across her face 99% of the time. See picture for example.

Tomorrow she is moving to California. I am really completely bummed about this. I knew for awhile that she would eventually pick up and leave. I didn't think it would be such a big deal. But it is, I am so sad to see her go. I am going to list the reasons why....

#1 She has the most kindest heart. She is accepting of everyone and she gives everyone at least 3-10 chances to redeem themselves. I usually write someone off after the first mistake.

#2 She is so fun! She is hilarious and anything with Jill involved is going to be a good time.

#3 Jill is care free. I have never met anyone that blows like the wind like Jill. It's ok, things are going to end up just fine. She thinks this and she knows this to be true. I wish I could be like her....even just a little bit. To have the faith she does. The faith that everything is going to work out, there are no regrets.

There are millions of things that I will miss about her. She was the one that taught me how to do a messy ponytail. It sounds dumb, but I just couldn't figure it out. She was always so willing and able to help me and Shanna out at work. She really would do anything for us and the Inn. She is a garbage disposal. She eats anything! I loved seeing what she would bring for lunch some days. She had really great stories too, better than my stories! She could find you a discount for anything.....this is no lie! I have a noodles and company coupon in my work inbox at this very moment because of her.

Jill, I hope you didn't find this blog to be creepy. But I really will miss you and I wish you the best of luck with everything! I hope you can find a job where you are paid well and where you are happy. I can't wait to come and visit you in California! Love ya tons!

Love, Linds
