Here's to you Chad...

I don't even know where to begin. I guess from the beginning...

I moved here in 2000, I got a job as a waitress and met my best friend, Steph. On my 19th birthday party we ran into a couple of guys, who happened to have gone to high school with Steph. Chad and M(aka HUBS). We all know what later happened with M:) Chad, on the other hand, is a different story... I remember we all meet, over a game of pool, and there was just something unique about him. Something I had never met in anyone, in Texas. He was wordly, had a great personality and loved the same things I did. We were the best of friends, from day one.

I remember we used to do everything together. We used to take Neil (his black lab) to the vet, & on walks. We used to go grocery shopping, out to eat and golfing. Litterally, we were inseperable. There was never a romantic connection, just an amazing friendship.

As I look back, I realize that Chad has been at almost every important moment in my life. He was the best man at our wedding, he was the first one we called when we found out we were pregnant, and he was the first one to comfort me (besides my loving hubs, M) when we found out we had lost the baby.

Chad has been an amazing friend to both M and I! M has known him for 30 years, I have known him for 7, but it would not have been the same had we all not shared those moments.

This Saturday Chad leaves for Med School, near Houston. Although it is only a 5 hour drive, I feel as though I am losing, one of my very best friends!

All the luck in the world, to you Dr H! You will be greatly missed!

The Last My Mistress Show

When I was a little girl, all I wanted to do was Sing! I sang in the shower, in the pool, and anywhere where anyone would listen! About 2 years ago, some friends asked if we wanted to start a band. I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into. Practice twice a week. Writing every moment you have available and singing like you were in front of 3,ooo people.

We started My Mistress in January of 2005. We had no songs, no real idea of what music we would play and most of all... No Name.

We decided on a name, and ran with it!

The past 2 years we have played for over 1,ooo people. Written more songs than we know what to do with and had more fun than anyone around!

I love the guys, I love the music and most of all I am sad to see My Mistress go!
