Shay is coming to stay for 2 days this weekend! She came to see a relative get married (Shay originally lived here with her husband who she met here) and I wasn’t expecting her until Sunday but, she said she wanted to see me tonight for a few hours.
I can’t explain. I don’t feel close to very many people. I mean, I have tons of friends but, only about 3-4 important people in my life (ranging from super close to supportive) Like, you know, the people you don’t mind seeing you snot crying and shit.
Anyway, I’ve been waiting to give Shay my presents from Christmas (yes, Christmas… I’m a complete dork because I spend soo much money on presents I run out of money for postage. I don’t have any excuses, I do it every year and vow every year I won’t do it next year. Sigh*) and haven’t seen her since my brothers memorial last year.
Anyway, Shay showed up with presents for me. That little!! She already got me presents at Christmas! She exasperates me. 🙄
Eggy immediately loved Shay. All cats and dogs do. She’s Shay, and pretty much all animals love her!
Anyway. We talked our asses off, laughed, hugged and played with Eggy, who was showing off like a weirdo!
I seriously can’t explain how joyful seeing Shay makes me feel. Sometimes, I just get soo lonely. The kind that feels rudderless. Like, I don’t really belong anywhere. With Shay, I belong..you know? I belong somewhere and that person misses me. That person knows my story, my history, my truths. When I’m with Shay, I am truly happy.
Ok. Now, for the pictures of a few of my totally unexpected presents.
I’m not showing all of them because it feels too braggy to post them all. These ones are my super favorites.
She also got me some cool socks, a Buddha magnet, Godiva chocolate and a pouch you can sew a cross-stitch pattern onto (this is a super favorite, but I didn’t get a photo of it)
