Bring it Friday!

Hey y'all, it's Friday and I'm glad. I'm ready for a busy weekend. I plan to do some spring cleaning and get my house all nice and tidy. I plan to prepare some meals for the week ahead and have a productive weekend. I will not be drinking any wine however. I haven't missed it yet, but it hasn't been the weekend, I'll let you know how that goes. My eating has been going pretty well. I need to, do I sound like a broken record or what. I just need to get my butt up and go!

I don't feel much like blogging, I don't know why, but it's true. I'm kind of sad in fact. I've had a disagreement with a good friend of mine. I don't like to fight, although this friend would say different. I'm having a hard time, because when I argue with someone I care about, it stays with me for hours, days, sometimes weeks. I can't shake it and I go over and over the conversation in my head. I try to figure out how we got to this point, what I did wrong, what I should have done differently, why this happened. I don't like this feeling, at all. My friend is very special to me, she and I have been through good times and bad, she has been my biggest cheerleader and my harshest critic. I feel like I have let her down, because, no matter what....I want her to know that I love and support her. I just don't agree with her on this issue and a few others. Does it mean we can't be friends anymore? I don't think so, but we are both opinionated and well, we both feel hurt and we both feel right. I don't know quite how to handle the situation. I do know that our differences seem to be getting greater and greater, we can't seem to agree on much of anything anymore. That makes me even more sad. I just hope that we can work things out and agree to disagree. I don't want this disagreement to turn into something bigger.

Here's to a good weekend...
Happy Friday!

I had a friend that happened with about a dozen years ago. It makes me sad to this day. We had a lot of good times together. I moved away, but I stay in touch and see her with the group of "our" friends when I go back and visit. Time passs and it is not the same. I would encourage you to try and work things out if you can. Good friendships are precious and it sounds like you feel this one is worth keeping. :) Happy Friday!

I am the same way. I go over everything and can't let it go. I hope you can work it out.

I sympathize. I have a very close friend who I think is distancing herself from me and I think it is because of the Band/weight loss. I was her sounding board many times when one of her other besties gave her the cold shoulder so I am debating confronting her about what is going on with us.

It's hard but I hope you can reach a resolution.

I hope you'll be able to figure out how to navigate this tough time with your friend. I so hate that. I totally get what you mean about it just sitting with you.

Good friends are priceless, but I think it's a fact of life that we all change very slightly as we move along, and it's possible that your friend has had things happen in her life which have changed her perspective on things. It's natural as you get older to have friends you wouldn't have contemplated having 10 years earlier. And if you give the relationship a rest for a while you may meet up again and take up where you left off (without the arguing!).
Glad you blogged about it, it's an issue we all face at some point.

Sorry you're having to go trough this, I've been there and it's very frustrating and hurtful. Sometimes friends just grow apart. Hopefully ya'll will make peace though...hugs.
