Today was turning out to be just such a Friday. But when I got back from the school supply store picking up supplies for the girls upcoming 100th day of school project my friend J called. J and I have been friends ever since we met in a mom's group when our twins were infants. There is no way I would have survived the first few years of motherhood without her. Every new mom should have a J. We spent countless hours together at parks, classes, malls and museums when our twins were babies and toddlers. She is the kind of friend that I can tell anything to and know I am not being judged. One of the things I love and respect about her is that she has the ability to give me people honest opinion without hurting their feelings.
Today she suggested an afternoon movie and even tough I am looking around my house and can think of thousands of things to get done, I am off to see Juno with J. So I am giving myself a free pass and pat on the back today for doing something fun on this Friday in January.
