I caught up with an old friend I haven’t seen in almost 7 years! Life just happened, we lost touch, moved away and got busy. Then she found me on Facebook and we hooked up this weekend! It was wonderful! The first words out of her month when she saw me was “You like just like you did in High School!”
What a compliment! :~)
I won’t get into it but most of you know I thought i was “fat” in HS and 15 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to accept the compliment. Now, all I said was “Thank you! You’re too sweet”.
It’s amazing how some of us have to learn how to absorb kind words. It’s like an exercise in self love.
Other then the reunion, I had a busy weekend. My friend and I took the toddler to Hampden Fest. It’s a great local festival with music, art and food. However, I didn’t expect the 90 degree weather! It was HOT. So hot that all we wanted to do was go home and nap. So we did! After nap my friend and I ran 2 miles together. I never thought I’d say this, but what a great way to spend some time and catch up, even if we couldn’t talk! ;~)
Then we were off to dinner. We took her to the “place they make fire” (Toddler Translation: The Japanese steak house.) To round off, pretty much a perfect day, the husband took the toddler home so my friend and I could catch up over a couple of beers.
What a day! Right?!?
Today the family was a bit more productive. We are almost done with the laundry, the garage is clean, the shopping is done. However we still have to make the toddler’s lunch, straighten up the house, pay bills and take the garbage out. The work is never really done is it?!?
On the blog front, well… I FINALLY made headway on my Aldi’s shopping list! I even recoded a video showing off some of my favorite products. I hope to have it posted tomorrow.
