SAS and 30 Days of Truth, Day 10.

July 28, 2010

Egg Salad
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1/4 – 1/2 C. mayonnaise
1 – 2 t. mustard powder
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2-3 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Place whole eggs in a bowl and, using a pastry blender, mash eggs until they are finely chopped. (I like to leave mine a bit chunky) Add crumbled bacon. Add 1/4 C. mayo and 1 t. mustard powder then stir to blend. Taste and then adjust amounts of mayo and mustard powder to suit your own taste. Season well with salt and pepper. Serve on your choice of bread. (I like mine toasted) I also add tomato (especially right out of the garden!!) and lettuce. Yummm.

 Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

As usual there is a couple of people that I think of when I read this one! One of those wont be in this entry.
The answer to this one would probably be my two "bff's" from Louisiana.

The first one I've known since we were 16, she moved in with my  family in my sophomore year after her grandfather kicked her out. We were like sisters. Best of friends. Until she met a guy. Yeah, she's one of "those!" Once she meets a guy she doesn't know you, until he dumps her. Not to mention the girl used to borrow money off of me all the damn time and never paid me back. But I knew when I was "loaning" it to her that I wasn't going to get it back so no biggie.

It seems I have a knack of finding those "it's all about me" people. The last time I spoke to her was when I was on my way home for Rusty's Dad's funeral. She decided that it would be a good time to call me and tell me about her suicide attempt. The day my son's father killed himself. I was still angry. So to have this girl, who's only problems was that she has five kids with a pill head and she can't keep her pants on., to have her call me and tell me how she didn't even think of her kids as she was swollowing the pills...can you see the flames coming out of my ears?

The conversation didn't go well. I  told her that I couldn't believe that she could be that selfish, to not even think of her kids???

A couple of months later her daughter sent me a message on FB to tell me that she was back in the hospital because of depression. I sat down and wrote her a long message (on fb) explaining to her, in detail what my ex did to his kids, his parents, his friends...the people who loved them. I begged her to think of her kids.

She never even replied to the message. A couple of months ago she started leaving comments on my profile, so I guess she's not mad at me anymore lol. I usually don't reply to her. It's just not worth the energy it takes sometimes. She's got to figure out her own life.

The other bff is almost just as bad. I honestly think (now that I've had time to look back over everything) that the only reason we became friends was because when we met at a mutual friends house she started having an anxiety attack. She didn't have her meds. I told her I had mine at my house. She came with me to my house and from then on, we were inseparable. We're two peas in a pod in so many ways it's not even funny. I swear, you could get the two of us together and let us have a couple of drinks and video tape'd sell that shit for a fortune lol. We're hilarious together. That's what happens when you put two blondes together!

We've had our issues. She  has issues with  Rx drugs. So I was the perfect friend (in her eyes) for her. I was just too dumb to see it. She'd always have a reason why she was out of her anxiety meds, and since I have anxiety and I know how it feels, I felt bad for her so I'd give her some of mine (we were on the same meds).

Both of her kids are my godchildren.  I love them dearly. It's one of the reason's we're still friends.  She'd stopped talking to be a couple of months before I moved away from LA. She woke me up early on the morning of my birthday and I was cranky, I guess it pissed her off. She was even invited to my surprise bday party and didn't show up.

A week before I left she got in touch with me and I got to see my God babies a bit before I left. I usually see her and the kids every time I go home but it's not the same! She tells me she's off all the Rx meds, but I know he so well that I know when she's slurring her words and I can (almost) tell you what she's on. It's sad.

Well, my sleeping pills seem to be kicking in! Hope you all have a good night!

Dear Cajun: Yes indeedy! Love those egg salad sandwiches! Three wishes and the first two are egg salad sandwiches! So glad to hear about the cap!BFF's are a blessing! You share much similarity; which is very synchronistic; like you were meant to be friends. Good idea to do this; to have a friend; be a friend! It always start from the place of self-love.(I mean liking oneself; what cha'll thinking, now, tsh tsh!)
