With a Little Help From My Friends

It's no secret I haven't been very happy lately, but I've kept the reasons for my frowny face a bit on the down low.

I burst into tears in Giggles' office today. Embarrassing. But what came out of that was quite cathartic. Oh, how I heart my Giggles.

Words of comfort. Shared outrage. Empathy. Beer (or root beer, in my case). Pizza. Warm cookies with ice cream. Glam. Bax.

Thank you.

  15. Sometimes it really helps to just let the tears flow and get it all out of your system. Especially when you have good friends to offer you tissues and warm cookies afterwards.

  19. What a lovely thing to have friends you can cry to at work. Embarrassing or not, that is truly a gift. When I'm having those days (or weeks), I just have a locked bathroom stall to console me. And there ain't no cookies & ice-cream up in there.

    {hugs}

  23. I wish we worked or lived closer to each other. We'd need wheelchairs from all the lunches we'd eat together. Even though I don't see you much, I hope you know you always have my good vibes and support. You're so deserving. Chin up my friend. xoxo
