I guess this will be the post where I rehash anything publicly sharable from my weekend. And then wonder why I feel the need to do so on the internet. But anyway….
I gathered up the 20-30 bags of stuff needed to travel with a child and headed to the fam’s on Saturday. (By the way, why does it now take me 3 hours to get ready to go somewhere? This is why parents of young children stay home people, it is too much dang trouble to get out!) The plan was to visit a while with mom, dad and bro, and then head a few miles down the road for my high school shin-dig. The family visit was way too short but was great as always. Sam entertained and then fell asleep in the recliner with her Papa.
The impromptu class reunion was super fab. There were a couple of people that I really wanted to see who didn’t show up but the turn out overall was great and everyone had a wonderful time methinks. I will say that just as I suspected it might be, that it was a little bizarre. Only because there were more kids than adults and we were all a little older (ok, ok, so 15 years is a bit more than “a little older”) and a little wiser I think. I was sitting at a table with my bff and she says “so who do you think has changed the most?”. I looked around the room and couldn’t really answer, I thought we were all pretty much the same, except for the extra 15 years and the offspring part. I asked her who she thought had changed the most and she said without hesitation, “you”. Ha! That cracked me up. I think it’s probably true. But that’s another post for another time. Sam was great and I handed her off to several people so I could go take a pic here, talk to someone there, etc. and she never whimpered. I should probably be a little worried that she’s perfectly happy to hang out with strangers but her easygoing ‘tude makes things much easier for mom. So sorry if you were stuck holding my kid against your will by the way. But thanks! My friends are all great babysitters!
Sunday…Our 5K was derailed by illness and craptastic weather so not much to report on there. But we are set to make another attempt in a few weeks. I can’t wait to get out there tonight because its been over a week since I’ve been able to meander the streets of my ‘hood and try to keep up with Cooper. He is going to be uncontrollable tonight I’m sure so that person you see being dragged down the street by a 90 lb chocolate lab and screaming for him to stop…that will be me.
