I'm Kim Greeley. Meara is my best friend. Ever since she borrowed a crayon from me in kindergarten, we've been inseparable. We're both only children, so it's like having a sister. You know, just one who doesn't live with me.
I'm spending the summer at my uncle's ranch, helping him with the horses. I've spent a couple weeks there in the summer ever since I was a kid. This is the first time I'm staying the whole summer. I'm glad, too. It will help me keep my mind off of Meara and her mom. I feel so bad for them, and it's awful that they are moving away to Canada. How am I ever going to see her now? And, how am I going to survive my senior year of high school without my best friend?
I'm going to try and be there for Meara as much as I can. I know she's not great at keeping in touch. Those weeks at my uncle's in the summer proved that. I would email her almost every day. I was lucky if I got two emails from her during that entire time I was gone. I never got mad, though. That's just Meara. When you love someone, you love all of them, not just the good stuff. Sure, it's frustrating, but you know what? I'll deal with it. I'd rather keep her as my friend.
So, before I go, a few things about me. I obviously like horses. I love traveling, laying out and soaking up the sun (you have to enjoy summer in Wisconsin for the brief period it's here), and hanging out with my friends. Hopefully, I'll get to hang out with Meara again soon.
