What a great day. A visit with friends, my son has a friend over and my daughter is out playing with friends too. I think we’ll all fall into bed and crash tonight.
This morning, it was a blogger’s breakfast. Dawn, Joy, Emma (who’s gone private…for now?), and Aimes were all there. I’d never met Aimes before nor had I read her blog, but I sooo enjoyed meeting her. You’re a blast Aimes and I’m looking forward to next time.
It was just great great conversation. Five women that I don’t think would have had the opportunity to otherwise meet. Five women at different points in their lives. Different age groups. Different family situations. Different values and beliefs. But yet we came together and laughed our asses off! Well, they didn’t, but I did and I attracted some glares from fellow patrons in the process. Well, that’s not exactly true either. I think it was just one patron. At any rate…We were able to move past those differences and our social backgrounds and find common ground.
We met at 9am and didn’t leave (that) restaurant until after 1pm. That is, I left a little after 1:00. I had to get home because R’s friend was coming over shortly after 2:00. The rest of them (joined by Sirdar) continued on to another place for lunch. They may even still be there now for all know!
Wait – It’s five o’clock – I’ve gotta go get J from Dawn’s house. Her kids looked after mine while I was out, and when I came to pick them up J wanted to stay. Dawn’s girls were kind enough to let her. Thanks, girls!!!
Okay, I’m back. Dawn and Sirdar were home and it sounds like they had fun. It was too bad I had to leave pretty much right when Sirdar showed up
because he smelled. 😉 It would’ve been nice to visit with him, too.
When the mom of R’s friend comes to pick him up I look forward to a good ol’ chat with her, too. Yay, more
sitting on my butt talking visiting!
Good times. Good times.
