Most people are fully aware that my best friend (of 20 years!) has been working on a cruise ship for about a year now. Not having her here during this time of my life has been really difficult, we went from talking daily, to weekly... if we were lucky. She has enjoyed the experience, but being away from family and friends has also been difficult for her.
Yesterday, she called while I was at work. I usually don't answer my phone while on the job, but I just had a feeling, and conveniently, I was in a position where I could answer. It was the greatest call ever. She's coming home on Monday!! Yaaaaaaaaaay! This is an amazing surprise, she wasn't due back until the end of September, and had even mentioned extending her contract until early December.
This officially marks the second time in two days that my co-workers (and the students) have seen me jump up and down screaming (yeah, try doing that while your driving a van in Friday afternoon rush-hour traffic)!
I'm so excited!!
I definitely have some wine shopping to do!
