Missing my GNOs!

I had a moment Friday night.

It was a moment of holding back tears because of how dramatically our lives have changed this year.

I had gotten a text from KK earlier last week, saying “GNO Friday night!” Honestly, I didn’t even reply back to her. It just depressed me too much. I should have, I know that, but it’s just hard to tell them I just can’t be there. It’s just not possible for me to drive 4 hours for a night out with the girls, no matter how much I want to.

I know they still invite me to keep me included, and for that I’m grateful…but it makes me miss my friends so much more. And by the end of the week, although the text was still there, I had mostly forgotten about it.

And then Chelle started posting mobile pictures of the girls during their GNO on her Facebook page.

If I had been smart, I would have just shut down the computer. But I didn’t, and I looked at every picture she posted. Even commented on a few. After that, I missed being a part of them so much I couldn’t stand it.

I woke up Saturday morning with my phone buzzing. I had gotten texts from Shan and Chelle, telling me they missed me, and then Chelle had sent an email with a video from her cell phone attached to it. The video showed all the girls around the table, calling out “Hey” to me (some using their favorite nicknames for me) and choruses of “We miss you!” I sat right there at the table and cried after I watched it! But it really did make me feel so much better.

I was going to try to upload it here, but I couldn’t get it to work. Oh well…just imagine a cell phone video camera whirling around a table, loud music playing in the background, and a bunch of girls yelling stuff out!

  1. It’s hard when you move away. I actually cried when I was out by myself the other day, thinking that if we hadn’t moved, I would have been out with my friends enjoying my kid-free time, instead of being alone. 😦

  2. They need to plan a GNO at your neck of the woods. It would be a fun road trip for them, and an even funner night for you. You could even have a sleepover. STay up all night, and talk.

  3. Awwww!!! I think it’s fantastic that you have a group of friends that miss you that much and included you even if it was through video. This post brought tears to my eyes.

    I’m sorry you miss your friends.

  4. I would love to plan a girls’ night out. One problem. I don’t really have that many friends. I have friends that I have known for some time, but we have grown apart and have moved on with our lives. It is sad really.

    I need to get out there and be more social. Part of my problem is that I am just not trusting of most women…which is an issue that I have had for a very long time. I am going out this Friday with hubby, my brother and his girlfriend. She is really the only girl that I hang out with these days. And she is moving to Delaware in August for school.

    Sorry you were missing your friends. I kinda remember how that feels when I used to have friends. 🙂
