On Friday, my very good friend Lorrie Fenn died of a heart attack at the gym. Thursday was her 30th birthday.
Saturday night was to be her 30th birthday party that we had been planning and super excited about for what seemed like months. It was a 1983 themed costume party, and it was going to be EPIC!
Saturday, I was picking out my dress to wear to her funeral instead of putting on my leg warmers to go to her party.
Her awesome and huge birthday present that was going to make her squeal and giggle is sitting in my living room. I am going to keep it there a little bit longer.
I am not working today. I am wallowing in my grief. I am eating corn dogs and chocolate ice cream with M & M’s for sprinkles.
I am obsessively checking into Facebook, seeing if there are any new pictures, any new words. I am sending e-mails, texts, making and receiving phone calls.
That is where I am right now, wallowing.
I am giving myself one more day. My boo will be laid to rest in her hometown of West Virginia tomorrow.
Wednesday I will get back to work. And I would like to share more about my angel faced friend then. -Carly
