What a Weekend!

I had a roller coaster ride of a weekend. First, I was treated like garbage on Saturday by someone I long considered a friend and was tossed out on my ear into the pouring rain. Got my feelings hurt as well as got drenched. My clothes, my hair, my purse, my laptop case and I all had to do a big dry-out when I got home. I’ve decided that from now on, I can’t set myself up for that kind of treatment. I’m too valuable to myself even if not to certain other people. I’m a big believer in forgiveness and I have forgiven the person who hurt me so callously but that doesn’t mean I’m going back for more of the rude treatment.

On Sunday, we bade farewell to my nephew and his wife who have been stationed in Italy for the last three years and have been here for three weeks between duty stations. They are leaving for California on Tuesday. It was good to spend time with them.

Sunday afternoon, on the invitation of my friend who lives in Tallahassee, I drove over early for my court hearings on Monday and spent the night with her. She’s a lot of fun and loves to laugh. She cooked steaks which we enjoyed with another friend and her husband who is beginning a big case today. He’s a prosecutor and is trying the first murder case in Leon County where there’s never been a body recovered. He’s got oodles of evidence and it was interesting to hear about the case.

We also downed a couple of bottles of wine and giggled and carried on until midnight. I needed this time with her to let me know that I am a valuable person and deserve to be treated as such. I need more people in my life like her. She treasures me and lets me know. In the over 25 years that I’ve known her, she’s never, ever hurt me. We’re going on a cruise together in May with another friend and it’s going to be epic!

How was your weekend?


  1. Yikes Jillian. Sort of a down then up weekend. Glad it ended so well. Now for a good week right?

    • Thanks Lavada. It was a down/up one. I’ve gotten off the crazy train now. Lol.

  2. What a great finish to a topsy-turvy weekend. Hope your week is up, up, up! (Can you tell by my attitude we’ve got SUNSHINE here? 🙂 )

    • Indeed, Laurie. It was a great end to a really odd weekend. Glad you’ve got sunshine! Hope it lasts.
