Wrong number at 2am? :P  
I guess I had an indication of what my day would be like when my cell phone rang at 2am... I groggily got up to answer it, but it was too late, it already went to voice mail. I checked my voice mail - no messages. I checked my call log, no new numbers... :( The only person who would really call me on my cell phone so late at night was my Mom if something was wrong... And I'm a perpetual worrier (since she lives by herself) so I spent the next few hours wondering if a) she was okay b) if I should call her to check c) if it was just a wrong number... :P Of course, being the worrywart that I am, I couldn't go back to sleep - I kept thinking that something might be wrong with my Mom - but I didn't want to call and wake her - if things were fine...

I finally called her at 7am to find that she was fine and hadn't called AND was thankful that I didn't worry enough to call her at that hour to check. :P I know my Mom is independent and can take care of herself, but I worry because she's all alone. This spawned a conversation between Mark & I about the possibility of purchasing his parent's house (which is right down the street from my Mom) one day. Mark's parents were always talking about moving to a senior community one day and since Mark's sister Julie is in the process of closing a mortgage on a condo in town (and will be moving out soon), they may start to look at that as an option. It would be a great situation all around if we bought their house... for one - it's close to my Mom and we can keep an eye out for her, it'd be much closer to work for the both of us, and big enough to think about raising a family... I guess we'll have to wait and see what Mark's parents decide to do.

In other news: We finally got our address labels that I'd ordered a while back. :) And I think they somewhat look like us... Don't you think? ;)

On a theatre note: I'm bummed that I'm missing Broadway Barks today. :( I've always wanted to go to it since it combines my two greatest loves: musical theatre and dogs - can't get much more perfect than that! :) Too bad I don't live closer to NYC... :( And I finally got around to watching my Today show tape of "Big River" and it just looks like such a special production. The mix of sign language and singing (deaf and hearing actors would be so wonderful to see - and I've only heard great things about it) - plus I'd love to see Rod perform again. Sometimes I hate living so far away from all the good theatre! :(

And I did this, a little late:

1. Do you remember your first best friend? Who was it?
It was my neighbor, Christina. She was two years older than me but we grew up together, Barbies, lego, ez bake oven and all (she had one, I didn't...)

2. Are you still in touch with this person?
She lives in Washington State I think and she's married - I haven't seen her in a while. I still talk to her family when I'm at my Mom's house, though.

3. Do you have a current close friend?
Susan :) And of course Mark & my Mom. :)

4. How did you become friends with this person?
Susan was intially Mark's co-worker (and still is...) I met her through him. We all were in the Jaycees together and Susan and I started to hit it off - we had the same taste in men, the same interests, the same off beat sense of humor, etc. People used to confuse us for each other - They called her Sheri and me Susan for the longest time! And now we're both not in the Jaycees anymore but we try to make it a point to go out once a month by ourselves for dinner - and other times with each other and our men. :)

5. Is there a friend from your past that you wish you were still in contact with? Why?
My roommate, Julie from college. She was my maid of honor at my wedding and she's lived all over the mainland getting her residency for Med school (I can hardly keep track of everywhere she was) Funny thing is that we kept in touch through letters, phone and email a lot while she was away - but she finally came home about a year ago - and though I see her, we've kind of found that we've grown apart. :( It's kind of sad... Also my best friend from High School, Lisa. She and I were very close all through high school, college, etc. and seemed to loose track of each other after I left for college. I just saw her recently and caught up a bit, but we've defintely grown a lot apart.

I loooove the labels! That is soooo cute! Where did you get them from?

Thanks! They were from a website: www.familylabels.com. I saw one of my clients with them and had to order some for us. :)

Those labels are ADORABLE! I want some now! Maybe I could just order Tom, Cameron, and I and leave our seven animals off. :P But, I would feel badly about doing that.

Thanks! :) Too bad they can't put all ten of you on there! :( I think you should order a set. :)

I'm glad your mom was okay. Cute labels!!! :) It's never too late to do the Friday 5. :)

Thanks, Carrie. I was relieved too! I think I worry too much about her - but she's the only family that I have left. :( And thanks for the nice comments on the labels - the hair isn't exactly me - but Mark picked it out because it looked the closest to my hair style... He and Sydney look exactly like the label, though. :)

Are you by chance a Sagitarius? Just wondering... you seem so much like me. I stress over phone calls on my cell like that too.

Those address labels are cute!!!! Very close! I might have to try that out!!!
Sherishutterbug93 on July 12th, 2003 11:25 pm (UTC)
Heehee...no - not a Sagittarius, but close. :) And I always stress out over my Mom (needlessly, I might add). Even she thinks I'm silly for worrying so much. :P

Thanks for the nice words about the labels. :) And I think if they had a girl with "messier" hair it would've been much closer to me - that girl on the label's hair is too neat. ;) Hope you're having a nice weekend. :)

Love the labels!

Glad to hear your mom is ok.... :o)

Thanks Stacey. :) And thanks for making me smile, I really needed it right about now... :) Hope you're having a nice weekend. :)

No problem anytime! :o)

The address labels are cute - thanks for sending a smile. :) I'm glad to hear that your Mom is o.k. :) I can imagine very well that you was worried - it never was something bad and luckily it's been a while that it happened but I always jumped out of my bed when the phone rang at such an unusual time. *Hugs*
