The End Of A Friendship

Goodby My Old Friend

I have a friend – I've known her for many, many years. In fact we met when I was pregnant with my first child, Scott. At first we used to get together maybe every three or four years. But now she comes to visit at least every year and sometimes several times a year.

When we're together it's amazing! We stay up late at night and have all kinds of fun drinks and treats. We go out for dinner and order fancy, elaborate meals. We love to have cinnamon rolls for breakfast, greasy french fries for lunch, and of course dessert every night. My friend went with me on our cruise in January to Tahiti. She helped me sample all the different foods that they offer.

I have come to the conclusion that after a long friendship, I may need to cut this friend off. I've been working on it - I haven't returned her calls even though  she calls me quite often, especially late at night. I've tried to stop any kind of communication with her and hang out with new friends. I've tried this before with mixed results. I'm hopeful that this time I can really do it.

Oh, by the way my old friend – well she's changed her name several times too. First I knew her as five pounds, then ten pounds and recently she's gone by fifteen pounds. I'm hoping to just remember her fondly and all the good times we had, but not renew our friendship again.

Wish me luck!


  1. Oh dear, I know her! I've been trying to end that relationship too. I wish us both the best of luck!

  2. Absolutely, I'm with you. :-)
