I DID IT!!!!!!!
Well, you are all wondering if I went off the deep end. I didnt but Im so proud of my self! Remember the post I did a few days back titled I just dont know? (read here)
Well I was troubling over it a lot. So today I got off my butt. I'm always using the internet so I thought hey lets try for something good maybe. SO I started with classmates.com. I didnt get anywhere. Then I went to people search. I put in my girlfriends name and did a search. Well they came back with about 4 pages of names same as hers, and for just 8.99 I could get more information to narrow it down or actually find her. Well I just dont have extra money right now so I started to leave. But then the web site popped up a special that said for a one time use on just these names and if I had her close last known address I could pay 1.98 and get the extended information. SO I broke down and used my credit card(bank card) and paid for the list. It came back with 3 names 2 with the same phone number. So I wrote down all the information and closed out. Then I took a deep breath, said a prayer and dialed. I got a voice mail. (now here I must say the voice sounded like my friend but it's been over 20 years so I wasnt really sure)I left a message saying I was looking for so and so who used to live here and here and if you were that person please call this number XXX-XXX-XXXX and if your not that person please disreguard the message.
With in the hour my phone rang.................
IT WAS HER!!!!!
We talked for 2 1/2 hours. and I told her I wanted to get together as soon as we could. I learned that she knows where her kids are but she doesnt get to see them. I know that she has been married to this guy for 6 years and they seem really happy. I learned that she lives in Mpls. Then we talked about old times. And guess what?
I cried!!!!! and was very happy I got off my butt!
