Pussy Party

No--it's not what you think! It's my sisters, sisters-in-law, some ex-sisters-in-law, some cousins, and a couple of very close friends, getting together for what used to be a monthly, now quarterly, Slumber Party. Only not much sleeping gets done.

We do hair, nails, facials, massages, confessions and tactile-therapy. (That's LOTS of hugs for you who thought something else!) I've missed the last couple gatherings due to various conflicts, and nearly missed this one because of a nasty cold/sinus infection/crud. But I decided to wear a mask and gloves, and take my chances, and I haven't been asked to leave yet!

I remember reading an essay that gets circulated thru email from time to time. It's about a mother talking to her newly married daughter about the importance of maintaining her friendships with her girlfriends, and for my family that includes sisters and cousins as well. It's common to think all your needs will be met thru your husband (or significant other if you choose not to marry), but that is quite short sighted. No one person can meet every need of another, nor should they even try! How stifling--how suffocating--how selfish!

My family has had its share of highs and lows, and there's nobody better to share the highs with than those who know you through and through. They know the sacrifices you made, the price you paid in dollars, sweat, and tears to achieve your goal. And nobody but family can comfort you in the awful lows that inevitably follow the highs. Again, they know you through and through. They know when to speak, when to listen, when hug you, when to hold you, and when to just sit with you.

They also know you in the in-between times, when life is neither great nor gawd-awful. Somehow, they seem to know when you're open to meeting someone new. They have a pretty good idea of "your type," and in an uncanny way, they seem to know when you're ready for a different type. And when there are 14 of them, an only one of you, they seem to be able to make you an offer you can't refuse!

So after the Pussy Party is over, and I have been poked and prodded, pampered and preened, I will be meeting their latest offering in the "Find Julz a Man " game. How did I get signed up for this, and does anybody ever win? I'll keep you posted, as I have no choice. Thanks a lot, Lacey!

when Julz isn't hurting anymore, when she let's go, really lets go, they will fold up the Julz board game.....because she will find her own Man.

Julz, I wish you the best of luck in your journey to find that man just for you. You sound like a very pleasant woman that has many great qualities. I feel that you will soon have many suitors that whisper your name up to the balcony from which you search for your Romeo.

I have been blessed in that I have a large extended family on my mom's side that has maintained close yearly ties for my entire life.
