So an update on my mid life crisis. I just bought a plane ticket to L.A. in December to visit my best friend in the whole world for a week. I AM SO EXCITED. I have not seen her in 5 years. I have not met her kid. Southern California is full of stuff to do. I shall eat all the seafood. NOM. And I'm going by myself, no kid. No husband. This trip is MINE. We are going to do all the girly touristy fun things. FUCK YES.

Thank you all again for all the kind words and advice last night. This community is absolutely the best and ridiculously good at support. How do you know the right things to say? Y'all are some boss ass bitches, and I love you.
