life is good...


I'm back from girly weekend, and it was eventful -and fun- as usual! I personally think it was one of the best, so far, in spite of the fact that two hours after our weekend began at my sister's, I had an accident that gave new meaning to our official beverage, the bloody martha (see my 7-11 post). While slicing fruit for the sangria, I managed to slice my left thumb -I'm a lefty, so I'm not entirely sure how this happened (and this was BEFORE we had cocktails!) It was a small but relatively deep cut and it was over a knuckle, so my sister and my friend Liz accompanied me to the Emergency Room at the Metro North Health Center in Framingham, where I received four stitches and a splint to keep it immobilized. I'm supposed to have the splint on for five days, but I've removed it (on day three) because I have no patience for infirmity and I want to be able to hit the space bar instead of the letter 'v' every time I type!! I was EXTREMELY lucky that I did not sever any tendons!! But the injury did not hinder our shopping day in Newport one bit...

This year's favorite shopping spot was the Music Box Annex in Newport, which carries a huge line of "life is good-wear." The optimistic message, bright colors, and simple line art drawings on great quality cotton were irresistible to us all!
For now I will post just a two pictures - one is of the candle-lighting ceremony that we do at the end of every bonding weekend, (we found that female-symbol candle during the first bonding weekend & it was the beginning of the tradition!)The other is my mom (center) me, left, and my sister, Jennifer in our life is good jammies.
There's so much more I would like to write about the weekend and the amazing, special women that share it, but I need to rest my thumb, so I'll post more tomorrow!!
