If nothing else, this whole lousy Hemi situation has made me realize that I have some pretty cool friends. So many people that I never thought would really understand how wrecked I am over losing Hemi have approached me and either given their condolences, given a hug, given me a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen to me. And if you know me, you know I hate crying. And I hate crying in front of people even more. But since this has happened I've cried with a friend in the middle of a restaurant, cried on the phone with my sister in law, and cried in front of my best friend while decorating ginger bread houses together. Even one of my new co-workers took me aside and told me that she was really sorry and was thinking about me. So thanks everybody. I'm probably not done crying, but you guys make it easier to get through.
