...With a little help from my friends

So my days tend to be pretty uneventful, but yesterday was a good day.  I worked yesterday, and got a text message from our friend Stacy.  I have known her since junior high, she met her boyfriend, Alan, in high school.  The two of them got engaged soon after.  It was almost three years after graduation that they met my then boyfriend, Jesse.  Her and I had kept in touch every so often after high school, but started to become close again after Alan was diagnosed with cancer.

He thankfully got through it, and Jesse got dubbed as "cousin Jesse" in Alan's family.  I needed a change in my job, and applied at Hoya Vision Care in Tacoma where Luann (Alan's mom), Bobbie (Alan's sister), and Stacy's dad all worked.  I got the job there, and Jesse and I have since kept in contact with everyone.

And back to yesterday... I got a text message from Stacy telling me that she wanted to make an apple pie and asked me to help.  Needless to say, I came home from work, changed, then headed over.  Stacy made dinner (which were delicious egg rolls), we went out to the hot tub in the apartment complex (it was an indoor hot tub), and made an apple pie.  Of course me not considering that I would be running around in a bathing suit, I didn't bring sandals.  So, I got a pretty good laugh when Stacy saw me in a bathing suit and furry boots.  The apple pie making was interesting too -- but what happens in the kitchen stays in the kitchen!!

I do have to say that I really appreciate having great friends such as Stacy and Alan, and that they are able to make time for me with their busy schedule!  I am very thankful for them.
