My BESTEST Friend!

Okay, so I was nervous about going to McCall. I really was. Going to a new place surrounded by people I don’t know, heading into a situation that I really don’t know what to expect. It was really overwhelming (since I’m a “freaker-outer”) and I kept almost talking myself out of going. But go I did.

Kylie gave me a bright yellow bag with a present for every day I would be gone. It was kind of like those count down calendars for Christmas, only it was a count down to when I got to come home. It was the BEST thing ever! The first day was a bag of garlic flavored bagel crisps (oh, how I love the crunching).

The presents are cute little things like stickers and pens, and some bigger things like a stuffed monkey and some monkey socks (I love the little monkeys!) Her presents have been lifesavers as I wake up and the thing I’m most excited about is to see what today’s present is.

One day I was sad that I didn’t have a present. Then I realized that I was a day behind and there WAS a present for me! HOORAY! In fact, it’s become such a big part of my day that when I pick up Rose in the mornings, she always asks me what my present of the day is.

Today was my one day off from my internship. Daniel came down to camp the night before and then hang out today. It was a lot of fun to see him! And he brought with him a BONUS present from Kylie! It was some more bagel crisps (mmm…more crunching is in store!), some poky, a “David & Goliath” bendy figure named Eve L., and the FUNNIEST homemade card! (It’d tell you what the card said, but it’s so full of esoteric stuff that it just wouldn’t be funny.)

Kylie, I don’t know what I did to deserve a wonderful friend like you, but I hope I keep doing it, because I love you! You’re the best friend ever!

I LOVE YOU! and I'm so glad that you like your presents...even though some of them are very cheesy. You're right, no one would understand the card...they would only think we are crazy...which we totally are. :)
Crunch on my friend, crunch on.

and come home soon! I miss you so much!

poor kittens!! Hey! Old Bob Barker should use exclamation points at the end of all of his sentences...then he wouldn't have to worry about telling everyone to have their pets spayed or neutered!!! GENIOUS!!!!

ok, so it's spelled GENIUS...I just looked it up, but couldn't figure out how to change it without deleting the entire post. I suppose it's not really a news flash that I can't spell. Good thing my other half is so dang smart! She makes up for my shortcomings! :)
