Poor Cari took a bit of a tumble snowboarding today, Luckily Krystyn was able to capture the moment with her GoPro. She wasn’t able to get a picture of her face later, but she says the ol’ moneymaker is all scraped up. Too bad.
We had Amber over to play after school yesterday and she brought her Mummy’s high school yearbook. LOL!
Cari looks like she might have had some work done since she graduated in 1991. LOL! Is she turning 43 this year? LOL LOL!
Since Cari has been so “difficult” lately, I decided to give some of my other gal pals a bit of a tryout as my new bestie. I called Krystyn this morning and we decided to go have coffee together after Rowing to Rap at the gym.
It was fun. She is a wicked gossip and had many unflattering things to say about Cari (I had, indeed, noticed that her butt is getting lumpy) but it just wasn’t the same. And she actually licked her finger after she touched the pastry we ordered to share, which I find so unnatural. It’s as if she wants to be overweight. You order pastries when you go out for coffee, but no one actually eats them.
I am calling Tabs on Monday and asking her to go on a run with me.
This morning was the holiday party at the gym. The theme this year was “Ugly Sweaters”. Clever, right?
Cari and I purchased matching sweaters months ago and they are hysterical, but she texted me this morning to tell me that she couldn’t make it. I know we are all busy this time of year, but who is more important at Christmas than your besty?
Röbby could tell I was sad and he offered to take the littles off to school for me. When he got home he had bought matching sweaters for him and me to wear to the gym. What a sweety!
The party was fun and everyone was so happy to see my handsome hubby there. The past week I have felt closer to him than I ever have before. I might even go cross country skiing with him sometime, LOL!
One weird thing happened. I thought that I saw Cari down the corridor from the boxing room. I called her name and waved but she just disappeared into a locker room. I could tell Röbby had seen her too. He was so upset for me that he turned bright red. She must be really excited about my Christmas present!
I have had the hardest time catching up with Cari over the last couple of weeks. I think she must be busting to tell me what she helped Röbby choose for my Christmas gift and she doesn’t want to ruin my surprise.
Yesterday I ran into Mitch at the nice mall with the Tori Burch shop. He told me that Cari had broken up with him last week, right after she heard from her lawyers about her inheritance from “James”. Interesting.
I tried to call her several times, and I only got a text back that said “Luv ya! Busy! XOXO!”
So I called Krystyn who said she’d seen her at a new hot yoga I didn”t even know about. Apparently Cari has a hot new man who is MARRIED! She wouldn’t even tell Krystyn who he is. Now that she has money of her own she is planning to run away with with her new guy. They are waiting until the day after Christmas, so he can spend the holiday with his children. This is such crazy gossip that I can’t wait to hear all about it from her!
Of course I don’t believe in dating happily married men, but Cari is such a free spirit and does whatever she pleases.
I don’t think I shared with all of you the sad news that Cari’s dear friend “James” passed away from age related causes in a nursing home In October. “James” was a kind and very generous man and it is a shame that his selfish children kept him from his love, Cari, during the final days of his life.
Happily for everyone, “James” was able to change his will so that his children all got small bequests, but Cari was left the bulk of his estate. Of course she was shocked and never expected this windfall, but it would be silly to turn it down. She wanted to be fair, so she instructed her lawyers to negotiate a settlement with his family that would allow her to avoid drawn out lawsuits, and they begrudgingly agreed to allow her to give them back half of the estate. Ingrateful, spoiled family; you would think they’d be happy she decided to share. Despite all of this, she has ended up a very wealthy lady indeed. Such happy news for my BFF. I am in no way jealous of her good fortune.
Karen slipped another lil’ photo under my door this morning. She obviously thinks that she can get under my skin by insinuating that my Mr. Perfect is fooling around on the side, because this is a more recent photo. She of all people must know that Röbert would never do that! She was infatuated with him for years, but obviously she is so old and fat and Röbert is fathful to his goddess, Lah Lee.
I know exactly what is going on in that picture! Clearly Röbert is planning a special surprise for me (for Christmas maybe?) and he asked my bestie to come into the city to help him shop. I just love Christmas! I can not wait to see what these two have cooked up for me!
