Christina's blog

I decided to embarrass Christina, and talk about her new blog.

She and I have been friends for almost 10 years now (can you believe that?)

We first met when she and I worked in our church office together. I was the secretary for the worship ministry and she was the secretary for the women's ministry. I remember doing WAY too much chatting in each other's offices, and sitting through incredibly boring weekly staff meetings. Then, we ended up in the same circle of friends (actually, they took me in - I was the baby of the group, by multiple years. Didn't I annoy you guys?) That's when she and her husband Chris met. Then, later on, we worked in another office together, a staffing agency. We would make trips to Chipotle for the entire office, and eat entire huge burritos just for the comfort of it (I was 20 pounds heavier that year than I am now, for a reason!). We had a habit of emailing each other back and forth (while we were both there in the office working), coming up with a "black" name to put in the subject line of each one (remember that, Shaniqua Latisha?) I don't know why we did this.

Anyway, she and Chris got married and moved to where his family business is, far away from here, and we continue to keep in touch, entirely through email. In fact, I don't think we've ever talked on the phone since they moved. Weird. Now they have two beautiful little boys who look exactly like she and Chris, and Christina has lots of hysterical stories about trying to keep up with them.

Christina and I have been through thick and thin together. Boys (men?), jobs, kids, work... We have played hard ball on occasion, but we're good at that. :) So, enjoy her new blog.


  1. Aaahh I made the blog :)
    It is so funny...when we met we really had little in common and yet me had this wonderful bond. I think I liked that you were an old soul and weren't into all that stupid BS that young people can get into.
    Remember when we went to that concert in Denver with Jonathan? I was happy to have someone with me to laugh at the sheer lameness of it.

  2. I had forgotten about that! Wow, that was a terrible concert. I remember all the little punk kids dressed up, and how Jon blared Third Eye Blind all the way up there, and we got Taco Bell at like 11:30 on the way back. Do you still keep in touch with the Hemphills?

  3. Right--we got the taco bell so Jon could take his ADD medicine.
    I do keep in contact--I e-mail Bobbi occasionally and of course christmas cards. Jon got married and divorced last year--poor guy.

  4. I haven't thought of them in a while. I housesat for them once - they had the nastiest cat I've ever seen - remember that? Poor Jon, I bet that was rough.
