anticipay-ay-tion

I've had this friend for years. And years.

She's one of my oldest internet friends, and I've been online for over 10 years. We've never met.

I remember the first one-on-one conversation we had. I said, in a public forum, "Hey Sue! I like you!" She replied, "Hey Stacy, I like you too!"

We've talked on the phone numerous times.
We've instant messaged more times than I can count.

I know her kids, and she knows mine, though we've never laid eyes on each other's.

I know her dog, Truman, and how often he poops, and where.

She knows my cat, Ashlie, and watched her grow from fist-sized bundle of fur to the fat, lazy slobcat she is now.

She painted her dining room red, I painted my family room red.

She and I are word nerds together. If I have a grammar question, I ask Sue. (Punctuation questions go to Elaine. lol)

She's Sicilian. She's fiery. She's snarky. She's loyal. She's funny. She's smart. She's my friend.

And I get to meet her IN SEVEN DAYS!!! :D

How exciting! Isn't it crazy how close you can get to someone you've never met? I dream of scrapbooking or taking a trip with some of the people I've met online! So jealous! Have a blast!

Oh my goodness!!! A whole blog about MEEEEEEEEEEEE! LOL!!!

I'm so anxious, too...I can't sleep lately thinking about this trip. I keep envisioning the moment you come off the plane and I'm waiting (cue romantic...uhhh...I mean upbeat...music in the background) to see if you recognize me! LOL!

But Stace...it was my KITCHEN. LOL!!!

I have met a few friends from way back when....moving around so much makes it easier to do..

I think since we first "chatted" I have moved from Alaska, to Oklahoma, to California, to Kansas, to Texas now!! WoW, have I moved that many times in 10 years??
