Bestest Bestie in the World

So it seems that I have the "bestest" best friend in the world. Crystal and I have been friends for a little over 10 years and I have to admit...she is the bestest bestie!!! The thing is that most best friends go shopping together, go to the movies together, have birthday dinners together but we don't do any of that. Sound weird? Well, to the average bear it does. We rarely see each other but talk every day and some days multiple times a day.

Yes it would be nice to maybe spend more time together but we both work and both enjoy our time off with our families. Then there is also the spouse issues...our men. They are so totally different that trying to get them together or to hang out is like pulling teeth. :o)

You see, there are needy friends who need and want you to spend time with them, then there are the so-so friends who come and go, then there are the friends who just need a listening ear and do not really care about you, and there there are the rare friends like Crystal. Lifer's!!!

Together we have been through partying, clubbing, dating, marriage, child birth (yes we have video taped each others births and she will be video taping this next one too), one divorce, another marriage, working together at two companies, dream-home building and many more of life's big events. Going through all of this together has been a real blessing and since I am not the most affectionate person, I have never been able to tell her this, so I have taken to my blog to tell her. :o)

Even though we may have one of the most unorthodox friendships, you are the best friend that I could ask for. I am so lucky to have a friend who is always a phone call, text or FB instant-message away. I am not sure how two girls who met many years ago, one thinking the other was annoyingly peppy and the other thinking she was a bi!ch - became such good friends. But, I am glad we did! :o) In some ways we are polar opposites and in some we are the exact same - so like some crazy puzzle piece we fit together perfectly. Thank you for being such a good friend to me, I luv ya babe. {muah}
