Peace Offering

Over the weekend I hurt a friends feelings and that is something that I hate doing. I hate when I know that I let someone down. I hate when I don't keep my word. It isn't the person that I am and then I feel like a big piece of shit for quite some time. Rather than let myself feel like that for too long, I made sure to rectify the situation as best as I could. Granted, it still doesn't make up for not being there on the special day, I think it at least helped a little.

I not only took a present for the birthday that was missed, but I brought my good friend some chocolate. I tried to have sad eyes too because I heard she can't be mad at sad eyes. Shannon, I am truly sorry for letting you down. I know no matter what I do, it doesn't excuse it, but I hope today at least helped a little. I really enjoyed the time that we spent and playing with Brandon. He is such a little man and reminds me so much of Seth in so many ways. I can't wait to get the two of them together. In fact, I enjoyed tonight so much, that I had a hard time leaving to go to a BBQ with Eli and our kids. I honestly can't wait until the next time. It was a blast. And hopefully you enjoy your little peace offering. I know I enjoyed my share already!!!!

AWWW! I am so jealous of all of you that live in Reno. And that was very nice of you to take chocolate. And you know what I say to Z when he gets gifts late (because he was with his egg donor on that holiday)? I say, "It just extended (the holiday)!! You get presents for more than one day!! How cool is that?!" That always works for us. :)

You are right, knowing that I am not alone does not really make me feel better, but all the kind supportive people who have commented on my blog HAVE made me feel better about it, so thank you!

Also? I would never want to be in trouble with Shannon. I don't have sad eyes.

Good thing she is forgiving (and loves chocolate) because apparently the sad eyes don't work haha! I'm way behind on your blog I must read and catch up today!
