This article may be a bit random. I have a bit on my mind so, hopefully everyone can stay with me. First off, sorry for my absence. Truth be told, I just didn't have anything to say. I could of made a bunch of pointless articles, but what would be the point? Now, I have some to say, so I'll say it. Now, onto this whole bubbles mess.

I don't have to much to say about Bubblews being shut down. I'm not angry, I'm not really all that sad, just shocked.. I know, I know, we all knew this day would likely come, but it seems to of happened so fast. I guess, every bubble eventually pops! Next, I want to talk about my Mom.

My Mom's surgery has been set for this Tuesday. I'm pretty nervous and I know she is too. She gets up and cries a lot. I wish I knew what I could do for her, but there's nothing. I'm really scared to see how things will be when she comes out. I know a lot of people live with half a finger missing, but it's still a scary thought. I just wish this whole mess had never sprung up! Or that they could at least find a cure, but a part of me thinks that will never happen. They don't seem to know how to fix autoimmune diseases. I don't think a single one has been cured, but if you know of one, please let me know. Now, the last thing that has been on my mind is my friend.

I don't know how much I have said about my friend on here. I know I spoke about her on Bubblews, but I don't know how much I said here. The thing is, she has been really distant and it's got me a little upset. First, she got this boyfriend and would never return my calls or texts. She even said, one time that she wasn't getting them. Then, the boyfriend and her broke up and she would talk to me more and more. Then, she got another boyfriend like, right after she lost that one and now, I never hear from her.

She called me one day saying to disconnect her SIM card cause she lost it and her phone on side the road. So, we did. We kept waiting for her to come over and come with us to get a new one for her. Well, she canceled two times. The third time, she didn't even bother to call and say she wasn't coming. Then, I get text messages from her new phone that she bought ( It's some prepaid type). All it would say was "hey". I ignored those because by this point I was really annoyed with her rude behavior. I figured she better have something better to say than "hey". Well, one day she texts me "Hey" followed by "Just checking to see how you've been doing". I sent back "Things have been rough". She sent back "What's been going on?" and I just sent back "a lot". I was hoping she would call or something because it really would've been to much to text. Well, that was Thursday the 12 and I have gotten nothing back. I just don't know what to do anymore. I don't think I did anything, but I am just ready to give up on her. She obviously doesn't care about our family anymore. Only her latest boyfriend, whoever that may be.

If you managed to read all of that, thanks! I know it was a lot, but I just had it all in my mind.

This kind of reminds me of a friend I had. The thing is we started being friends in 2nd grade and we were friends for 36 years, until something happened where she would not contact me anymore. It is a long story but the thing that happened was insignificant , it should not have been the cause for her not ever contacting me again. Since 2008, I have just had to let go and mourn it and move on.

Friendships do dwindle out when boyfriends come into sight..that's quite normal.

I am also experiencing days when I feel like I do not have any sensible things to post other than my daily life's experiences.

We had/ have (who knows at this point) been friends since I was in Kindergarten, she was in first grade. She never forgave you? That's unbelievable. I cannot imagine throwing away a 36 year friendship..

That's what I hear, but it hardly seems fair. After all, I was here first! I'm not saying she has to drop everything, but I think I deserve a call back, at least.

It really is odd how she abandoned our friendship.

Yeah, that's the thing with Bubblews... it happened so fast. Like one day it was done, the next it wasn't. I'm pretty much over it, but that was the feeling I got as well.

I am so sorry about your Mom. :( I know being there for your Mom, i.e. moral support, is definitely helpful. Sometimes all someone needs is to know someone is there with them throughout it. She'll definitely be okay, but I hope she's feeling better about it all soon. And same for you too; I want you to both to be okay. I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. -Big Hugs-

As for your "friend" - have you tried talking to her about it? Or has it fallen on deaf ears? I don't blame you for ignoring her for a while. People need to learn that one-sided friendships are not okay, and sometimes the only way they can realize they're taking someone for granted, is to not have that person for a while --- if that makes sense? It may have sounded better in my head.

..Weird, did they write a good-bye bubble or explain to everyone what was happening? Something.. I saw the note on the website after I got your email, but it left a lot to be desired.

I think she has started to accept it, but she is scared. We are all scared. I talked to her last night. We all really just want to see the light at the end of this really long and dark tunnel. We've been having a really bad few years. It happens.

As for the whole friend thing, I've thought about writing to her. When I try to talk to her, I let her know I am not happy, and I get a bit stern. However, she says she's sorry and sounds like she is getting upset and about to cry. Then, I feel bad and just shut-up. I don't know. I guess, she just got tired of me and moved on to whatever new life she has now.

Thanks, again VG ~hugs~
