So, I am back. It was a really, really good weekend. We drove twelve hours to the south...one direction, to meet my new friend, (and yours too, I'm sure) Soul. And we had an absolute blast. We could only be there one full day, Saturday, but we made good use of the time and packed alot into it. H thought I was crazy when I asked him to go, but he ended up having alot of fun as well. I am in pain this morning, but that is to be expected, and certainly no different than I would have been, 24 hours in the car or not.
Let me tell you---she is every bit as crazy in person as she is in blog land. I laughed until i hurt. The whole day. We discovered that we are so very like minded, just two different bodies. She and her very kind husband have a beautiful home and a sweet, beautiful daughter, and yes, she would kill me if she knew I said this about her, because it just isn't cool to be sweet you know but the truth is the truth. They were very gracious hosts, and I was quite sorry to see the day end. H and her hubby got along very well and that was quite a bonus.
Apparently, this is a very unusual thing to do....going all that way to meet a friend, or maybe to meet a friend that i haven't yet met in person, or maybe it was just that it was such a distance and a short period of time...I don't know, but it certainly was met with a lot of negativity. She and I have been friends for quite a while now, just not in person, we have talked online for months, and actually know one another very well. Why did I do it? Obviously, she means alot to me and it was the right thing to do. I cannot tell you why, other than it was one of those things that gets put off and never happens if you don't just do it. I generally would not drive across town to visit a friend, most people are not that important to me. So, she is special to me, and that is why anyone that knows me was surprised. The timing certainly was bad, at least work-wise, for me. But it was the right time, otherwise. And it felt right, and she seemed good with it. I know I surprised everyone in my life here at home, my own kids said "nah-uh, you are not". That's rather telling. But, anyway, that is where we went. And it was great, and certainly worth it. Doing things that usually get put off for a "better time" is part of the plan that H and I decided many months back had better be put into place now----life is for the living, and you only get one shot at this. It doesn't make sense to you, negative person in my life? I'm sorry....So, anyway....it was great!
Well, today I have to visit the Dr, before I visit the job. Lovely. Then, I work until eight tonight. And it starts again. Another week has begun. Did I mention it must be Monday? That's right, it is...have a great one! Later.
