Here comes the complaint, my sister got a job and now has no time to talk to me on the phone. It's very sad. Finally after not talking for 3 days we got to talk while I was waiting for the girls to get out of dance, using minutes (I used to make her call me on the land line but who knows when she'll be free again). Quit your job Val and spend your days talking to me on the phone...please! :) (before this week we normally talked on the phone a couple times a day for maybe a half hour or longer and then some scattered "real quick" phone calls for a recipe, a funny kid story, a reminder to set the DVR for something important, etc.)

This is kind of how I feel right now. I've been way too busy to do all of the things like blog and talk to people.

You've had some super busy days! Thanks for fitting in time for me. :) It is sad when you don't get to talk to someone you love as often. :( I hope she likes her job! :)

I have the same complaint about my best friend!

Well, not really. Her husband was in a job he HATED and she's now making more money than he did in the last 2 jobs combined, so I'm happy for them. But miss her!
