Furniture & Friends

For all of those that know me, ignore this paragraph. It contains useless knowledge for you. For those that don't know me (and haven't figured it out yet) I work at my families kids furniture store. It is great, most clients who come in are excited to be welcoming a new little one into the family or putting their toddler into a big kid room. We also sell a ton of little things like bedding, lamps, paintings, strollers, feeding goodies, etc. The list goes on and on.

Today was spent rearranging half of the showroom to make room for a new bunk bed. There is alot of stuff to move around! We seriously moved around 3 isles worth of hardwood beds, dressers and cribs and then moved around all the coordinating matching items. Holy man. I am almost as sore as the day I lost to the warehouse. But the bright side? It's done, and looks gorgeous. We have 2 inches too much room exactly where the bunk bed is going. Perfect!! And, bright side #2??? I don't work again until Monday, so I don't have to deal with the bunk bed coming out tomorrow! Sweet!!

Back to advice time for you guys. Do you know those friends that have been a part of your life for a long long time? Are you still friends with all of them because of your past together or do you leave some behind as you change and grow? Jon and I are both struggling with this question. There are people who we still randomly talk to that we used to be really close to, but have taken such different paths than us that our lives don't seem to mesh up anymore. We have found newer friends who mesh in right now and have the same interests as we do now. Getting together with them is a blast. Time with them includes  lots of conversation, and sweet activities. But the old ones still call occasionally, and we still have the awkward coffee chats, strange hugs and promises to get together again soon. How do we deal with this? Opinions please!!!
