Celebration Weekend!

I don’t even know where to begin; I have had such a fun filled, friend filled weekend so far.
Let’s see, it started Friday after work with a phone call from Randy with the most amazing news, I won’t tell what as it is his news. Just know it was absolutely 100% amazing. Then a short nap, so I could be wide awake to spend the evening at my friend Taslim’s home, he and his family are so warm and welcoming, he hosted a party with so many wonderful people in attendance. And the food! It was Bangladesh food and it was wonderful. I met so many nice people and had the best time. Then an early Saturday morning, off to the Fillmore in Plano with fiancé to meet friends to watch paint dry. Well I say paint dry, but it was two soccer matches in the world cup. I don’t know what any of that means, but I had so much fun hanging out with our friends Gladys and Don, their daughter Sam and their friend John joined us along with Mark, another friend. The only ones missing from that crowd was Henry and Alicia and their daughter, their presence was missed, however I am sure we will get together with them soon.
We were there from 8:45 to 5:45, it was a long day, and I admit I went to bed early. Today is a memorial at work for the co-worker who committed suicide. Well, it is more of a time for the people she left behind to say their final goodbyes. She leaves questions that will forever go unanswered.
I know this will probably garner me a lot of criticism, but I believe what she did was the ultimate act of selfishness and narcissism. She only thought of herself, not her children, not her parents, not her friends. We all go through tough times, then those times pass and life gets better, then some more tough, then the better, it is a cycle. Life is never perfect, it is messy and complicated. That is the last thing I am going to say regarding this issue.
So on a happier note, am spending the day again with fiancé. All in all it is a good weekend.
