MY FORGOTTEN FRIEND

While perusing the blogging world today, this post caught my eye. Jill talked about her BFF, her treadmill. This reminded me that I have one of those friends too. But, I have not been treating her very well. I never spend any time with her, actually, I do my best to ignore her, and sometimes I even try to bury her,,,under a pile of clothes! No, this is not the way to treat a real friend. And she is such a giving soul. I know for a fact that she wants nothing more than to help me better myself. She waits for me so patiently, never complaining or bringing attention to herself. She's like, "I'll just wait over here, under the window, in the bedroom till you want me. I don't have any where else to be, so I'll just be here when you are ready to spend some quality time together." I know I should be ashamed. I've been taught better. I know how to treat a friend. I guess I just need an attitude adjustment. So, I promise to do better. First of all, I will dust her off, being careful not to cause a sneezing fit, the dust is so thick. Then, I think I'm going to take her for a walk. Yes, that's what I will do! She likes walking. And she doesn't even mind if I run a little, she can keep up. I think I'll play her some good music, too. We both like walking to a beat. And I resolve, here and now, to visit with her everyday! She's gonna be so surprised! My legs will probably have a few negative things to say for a few days, but I think I can get them in line, too!

That is so hilarious....I have a friend here I'm ignoring too. My sister keeps telling me I need to move that friend into my bedroom too, but I just can't! Although I could put her to some use while I watch Days of Our Lives that I've recorded! :-)

I have that same friend that I've only visited twice since we became BFF. She resides in my guest room--all by her lonesome!

Well, my friend and I get together almost every day (until this week with the kids here) and we have the best time watching TV as we walk.

Dust your friend off and be nice to her and she'll be nice to you.

Hugs!
Kat

Oh, Tonja, you made me laugh again, as usual! I love your analogies!

My friend is at the gym, and we have had many great times watching a little personal TV together this summer. I'm afraid I have been ignoring her this week in my attempt to get things done before school starts. I really do enjoy walking with her.

That's funny, I just got my step out to do a little forgotten thing like exercise! It is that or buy new clothes, which, don't get me wrong, I love to do, but not in a bigger size!!! :)

So, you and I are doing the same thing... new BFF and diet. ugh. I would do anything for a potato chip or piece of bread right now. You know it's bad when your "treat" at the end of the day is a cup of decaf instant coffee with soy milk.

Ah yes, Jill's post got me back on my BFF too! 5 days now since last Tuesday - woohoo - but, can I keep it up? :D

Nice to "meet" you!!
