Okay, so this is really embarrassing to admit, but a funny story goes along with it so here goes.... I still have my baby blanket! It's pink and white plaid and oh-so-soft. I can't get rid of it or put it away, I've tried many a time but to no avail have I been successful! So today, somehow in conversation it came up at work that I still have my blanket. One of the girls I work with (no name used here as I don't want to embarrass her ;) still has her blanket and is just as obsessed with it as I am about mine! Can't sleep without it, can't handle emotional situations without it, as well as trouble getting out of bed in the mornings because I don't want to put it away for the day!
The reason this is such happy news is because many family members have given me much grief over this little fact and tease me endlessly, however now I am comforted and greatly appreciate the fact in knowing that I'm not the only fully grown woman that still has her blanket (aka NUTS!) For awhile now I've told myself that when I get married, I'll put it away. Possibly why I'm not married yet, I'm not ready for that kind of big step! But now I know (as my friend is such a great example) that a marriage can still be had with blanket still in tow! Yay!!
Okay, so many of you might not think this that funny but painfully pitiful, but I don't care! The reason I share this story is to let those mean family members (you know who you are.... who tease me about taking it on vacation and who steal it when I'm not looking) know that I'm not the only one! I know the teasing will continue until the day I die (even then, I want my blanket in the casket with me because if it's possible, I'm taking it with me!) and that's okay, because I'm not the only one!
