Hangover . . . . .

I’ve spent the last week with what I can best describe as a Friends for Life Hangover.  Lethargic, moody, emotionally achy and just feeling the need to avoid the internet.   Don’t get me wrong, I love the DOC and am so grateful to be able to connect on-line any time day or night.  But there is something crazy special about being in the same room, talking face to face, and hugging it out. 

Meeting friends for the first time in real life.

Reconnecting with friends I don’t get to see enough.

Acting silly.

And just hanging out.

Sometimes I forget how much I need the real-life stuff, in addition to the on-line stuff.  I miss it.  And I have a Friends for Life Hangover.  I kind of wish I could stay there forever.

But. of course, someone at home needs me too.  And she showed me how much she missed me the second I walked through the door.
I missed her.  But still, I miss my Friends for Life too. 


  1. I miss you too Karen!! Friends for Life is so hard to recover from! :)

  2. Lovely pictures. All of them. Thanks for this.

  3. Loved seeing all your pics... Is it weird I don't remember the one I'm in being taken? As nice as it is to be home, I'm missing all my FFL peeps too.

    And I still am wearing my bracelet.

  4. I feel the same way!!! This was my first FFL and I had an AMAZING experience, but I already miss everybody. Glad I'm not the only one feeling this way!!


Thanks for your comment!
