Hey everyone

I know this doesn't qualify as "regular posting" since I haven't been back on here since Sarah's and my anniversary, but I've been really busy at work and spend as much of my free time with Sarah as I can, since it's a limited time deal, for this go anyway.

Sorry to hear about your friend Janny, I know how hard it can be to lose someone you thought was close to you, and despite the fact that it seems to happen quite often in life, I still think it makes the friends we really do have that much more important and special.

Ninna, WTF? that's gross, IMO. Not just because of the blasphemous take on the twilight universe, or even because of the "spank bank" thing, but come on... Robert Pattinson? I know a lot of girls think he's "dreamy", or whatever, but after seeing how dismal of an Edward he makes, and his complete inadequacy in the role, I'd have thought most of them would have changed their minds, or at the very least new ones wouldn't start 'cropping up'...

My apologies to any RP fans in here, I don't begrudge you your attraction, I just plain don't get it.

Anyway, work's been good, kind of busy, damn people won't stop eating tacos! Grrrr. lol

And my time with Sarah has been nothing short of amazing, although we do still have our occasional spats, as all couples will.

We've been all over the town, walking here and there, going ice skating, trying on bridal gowns (her, not me), and we got some costumes for the Audience Participation showing of Rocky Horror at the end of February.

Guess who I'm going as...

Nope I won't tell you...

I'll leave you all in antici..... pation.

Anyway.

Umm, so yeah things are good right now, and I didn 't really have enough time to go back and read a substantial amount of posts, not to mention I always forget who wrote what by the time I reply anyway, so I apologize for this post being primarily about me and what's going on in my life, but I'll try and get more active on here so I can actually touch on some of the things that are happening with the rest of my lexily.

Till then,

Much Love,

~Codaniel Von Johnson~

*sigh*
and now i have a really short mail from the friend, telling me she quit facebook and that ppl thought shed blocked them. and that she needed ' a break'. and how i am doing.
she always needs 'breaks' and from what? shes always switching homes, jobs, studies, etc. thats why shes in london now, because she couldnt find what she was looking for here, but i dont think she even -knows- what shes looking for.
I dont know what to do..i like her, but i dont wanna be that person that sits waiting for others to notice her. thats just...too sad.
id rather not have friends, than wait for some attention.
*sighs again*

Aww, Janny *HUGS*
sad to say, I know your pain.
When my "best friend" asked me to come rub her back, because she was in suuuch pain, two nights before my wedding (which we held the reception for in our own home) I had had it. I decided I would have nothing to do with her unless she contacted me without wanting something from me. Since then I've seen her a handful of times.

1) when I babysat her girls the day after high school graduation night, because her babysitter had got acutely sick, and she could find no-one else. This I counted as my godchild needing me, since her mom had a weekend shift.
2) the kids birthdays (the kids aren't a part of my decision, they have no fault in this)
3) we met her outside our home, when she was parked on the private lot to run errands. Pup was 1 month old, she didn't even look his way.
4) first time she saw pup, when we delivered the x-mas gifts to her kids...
5) this fall, I ran into her on town, and advised her on where she could find pretty dresses for her girls

Why am I so fed up?
For starters, the hen-party. she talked wide and broad about how she would do it, made sure no one else dared to think about it. Then I guess something more important then me came up, 'cos I never saw no party, not from her at least. Same thing about our wedding-party in the summer. She didn't RSVP at all, and therefor I didn't notify her about the change of place (why waste text/money on someone who's not coming) and then another friend at the party asked if we had had a row, since just a few days before she had gone on and on about it. he wondered why she wasn't there... And all I could say was I had no idea, since she hadn't responded to the invitation...

But what stung the most was when pup hatched. She texted me, asking if they could come see him. Sure I said, hoping that maybe this was the turn around. She never came. Next day she texted again, sorry, we got held up, is it OK if we come today instead? Sure I said (it wasn't like I had something better to do while at the hospital). She never showed. No text, no nothing.

All in all, I'm better of without her. Obviously since I'm not a "true friend who's always there" when I stopped giving and giving without ever getting anything back, half of the times not even a thank you. I got sick of being taken for granted, being the back-up friend who would always be there, waiting by the phone for her to call.

Still, it hurts to see her on facebook sometimes, giving her love to her "the truest friends a girl could ever have", when my heart screams she wouldn't recognize a true friend even if (read when) they stood right in front of her.

Wow Ninna.. that's terrible. People can be really crappy. I'm sorry that had to happen to you. It is not fair and I think you're an amazing person and anyone who would do that to you needs to be thrown to the vamps.

Janny- I think that you should just forget about your friend. She obviously doesn't want to be bothered with so why give her the benefit of the doubt. She isn't worth it and you shouldn't have to go above and beyond to be her friend. Just like I said to Ninna.. you're an amazing person. You shouldn't have to put up with this from a good friend of yours. Let her live her life the way she wants to and one day she is going to miss your friendship and want to come back. Then it's up to you to decide whether or not she deserves to have your friendship.

P.S... I got my diploma!! It's official now!!! WOOT

I agree with Ninna and Lilly...you don't deserve it and the best thing for you to do is to redefine the relationship from that best friend relationship, to a friendly every-once-in-awhile friendship. I know it sucks, but it's best.

Ninna *hugs* That is AWFUL and unfair. I'm glad you made that decision and stood up for yourself. If someone really cares for you, they will make the time.
Man...there must be a worthless friend epidemic going around lately!

Lilly!!!!! HUGE CONGRATS!!! You have worked SO hard for it, enjoy!!! PS when do we get to see the wedding trial hair pics??? ;)

You know you miss me.

Postby obieewok » Wed Feb 02, 2011 7:44 am

So I came on here like a freaking month ago, throwing down promises of a post a week or something like a tard. I'm lucky if I check my email that often. Even though I can't keep up with the goings on of all of you (slow the freak down peeps), I still miss you guys and wanted to drop by to say hi. *flashes you all*

I am going to wade back through and see if I can catch up on some stuff - for those of you who got married/are getting married/had a baby/having a baby/found a dollar/found a dollar that wasn't yours/ate ice cream/kissed a guy or girl/kissed a guy or girl who was really a tranny - congratulations! All others - sorry. That sucks.

I miss my peeps! I do now own Eclipse, but have yet to watch it. I know I know - blasphemy - but things have been so freaking hectic since the holidays that I haven't had time to read ANYTHING. No smut even! Although, I have started on the awesome gift from Halls - the BDB Insider's guide. Me want to go to there.

Catching you up on me: Super stressed and tired at the moment. Obs will be *****drumroll please******Yo, you******I said a drumroll******single soon. Unfortunately, Obs and the hubs just didn't have what it takes to make it forever. Marriage is hard work - and people change, yadda yadda yadda. Long story short: I'm sad, but I believe there is a time to fall apart, and right now really isn't that time. Too much to think about and plan. Hubs and me are trying to make things as easy as it can be for our spawn and for ourselves. And we do plan to end our marriage the same way it began: As best friends. Obs can definitely say now that some people shouldn't ever marry, and she's totally one of them.

I'm moving in with my brother from anotha motha on the 18th with my girls. It's very temporary, only until I can secure a new house to rent or something. I'm selling my big huge barbie dreamhouse, and that makes Obs very very sad. But hopefully someone will buy it who will love it as much as I do.

Spawn are good - Little spawn turned one in December and she's FUSSY as all heck. Teething like crazy. She's the size of a two year old and her pediatrician says she's going to be super super tall - we are talking 5'9 here. I have no clue how both kids, who came from a 5'3 mom and a 5'1 dad are so tall, but bigger spawn is super tall too, and will be around 5'7. Bigger spawn has been having tantrums like crazy (wonder where she gets that from???), but hoping that's just a phase.

I am getting a big fat bonus on the 18th and besides paying off some debt and saving some, Obs plans on getting inked with some MRK artwork and getting her hair did. Obs looks like a nightmare - her hair was brown, then Obs decided to have a mini mid life crisis and die it red and purple, then blue (which looked like green, but not in a good way) and then tried to fix it by trying to color it back to brown herself. So now it's like a freaking light almost blond, and Obs plans to get it corrected right away.

I love speaking in third person.

Trip to Nashville to see Halls and party like a rock star at the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet boys concert is still a go for June. Can't freaking wait. I've relearned all the dance steps to Step by Step. Got my ponytail holder and tye dye tshirt ready!

Ok guys - that's all I have for now. A big ugly ice storm has hit Dallas as of yesterday, so everything is shut down here - except my work from home capabilities. It's times like these that suck to work from home, since I have no excuse not to work.

I miss you guys and I will catch up on everyone's drama soon!

Smooches,
Obs

Obs- I love your optimism about life. It's really inspiring. I wish you the best of luck with everything that is to come to you. I don't think I could go through what you are going through right now especially with little ones. My mom just got divorced and while it was the right thing to do... it was still hard. Hopefully your optimism gets you through this okay...which I am sure it will!

So today is another SNOW DAY! I can't stand it anymore. I can't do anything and while I love being with Greg sometimes being stuck in this apartment for days and days drives me crazy!!! I had like an inch of ice on my car yesterday. I don't even want to go out there and see what it looks like now. We had freezing rain all friggen night! But the babies love watching the rain and snow lol!

I've decided (which hurts a little) to go and get a library card since I can no longer afford to buy books when I want to. You all don't know how hard it is for me to say this because I LOVE buying books and keeping them. Sometimes things have to come to an end and sacrifices must be made. :(

Anywho... have a great day Lexily's!!!
