I know many of you know of my struggles coping with my best friend being over in Iraq. I havent posted on that in a long while...not because things have changed but because it gets tiresome for people to sit and listen to me whine about the same things that i really have no control over changing. it's nice to just vent sometimes though. Anyway...there is an evil force at work against me and her. I work overnight..so it is hard for me to get to talk to her online (our ONLY source of communication) as her time difference makes it the time she can get online. So i miss all that quality time with her that we used to share..and it makes every moment that we have together..all that much more meaningful and special. Anyway..about a million times...i have had horrible timing with her and missed her. Little things..I forgot to change my setting to Visible so she thinks i am not there and leaves..i walk out the door to do laundry for a minute she comes and goes..u name it..one after another...i can sit online all day and night long..and she wont be around..but the second I am "gone" ...THERE SHE IS! It's not something she is doing on purpose...i know it drives her crazy as well..but it is starting to wear on me bigtime. I MISS MY FRIEND!! Is it asking too much to just get a few minutes with her to help brighten up my day?? Its like the cosmos are taunting me and bringing her close but keeping her yet so far. On top of missing her yet again this morning, i got more news that could mess up my weekend.

I am spose to be going to Vegas with a group of friends. We had backstage passes for our group of 7 for a show we are seeing and i was very excited. I hadnt told any of them yet. Anyway..i got notice today that they overextended the amount of people and i can only bring one other person. 🙁 How in the world do i choose that? but i also cant pass up the opportunity myself to go and do this..its once in a lifetime. UGH!! why me?

Also they are telling my friend in Iraq that she may get a 2 week leave VERY soon. MAY get one..its been said before..but i am afraid with my luck..it will be when i am gone..ugh! please pray that things work out for us..finally! we seem to have no luck and i am bout at the end of my rope..thanks for listening

It sounds like you are having a bit of bad luck and timing. I hope it changes for you...

Whenever I seem to be in a rut with bad luck I do something kinda silly but it works for me. I'll share it with you- but don't feel obligated to try it.
I get a stick of my favorite incense and visualize a time when everything just worked right and was good (or if I am so upset/depressed that I can't remember a time like that I just use the ideas of goodness, good fortune and happiness). I then picture that the goodness is becoming part of the incense, just like the scent is part of it. Once I feel that there is enough goodness in it to overcome my bad luck, I light it. (Sometimes I sit there for quite a while before I feel like there is enough goodness to combat my bad luck- especailly for something that is really important to me- the key at this point is to keep your thoughts positive and focused on goodness, good fortune and happiness) As the smoke swirles around me- I picture goodness and good fortune surrounding me and transforming my bad luck to good. Sometimes if I feel especially unlucky- I will walk around my home so the smoke not only touches me but all my things. I do this for however long it takes the incense to burn down- the entire time I am visualizing my bad luck being consumed and/or converted to good luck by the smoke. Since it leaves my house smelling nice- I am reminded that my luck has changed. Sometimes I need to do this more than once. I have also used air freshener if incense is not appropriate. (I think the key to this is that I beleive it will work and it does more to help me focus on the positive and foster a positive mental attitude and outlook- so if incense or air freshener aren't your thing- make up something that makes sense and works for you)

As for having to choose which friend to take back stage- if you really have a difficult time- draw a name out of a hat- that way there is less room for hurt feelings and turmoil.

sending good luck wishes your way,

Make you own luck then. Predetermine meeting times - there's always email isn't there?

Just a suggestion
