This weekend was pretty fantastic, even if all the things I had planned didn’t happen. It was the local fair and I was really looking forward to going, especially since I haven’t been to it since 2009, but we didn’t end up going because we wanted to spend our money on more important, necessarily things. Sometimes being an adult sucks. We could have gone, if we hadn’t moved the weekend before and weren’t still reeling from that. Whatever though, there’s always next year…right? Besides…both the kids will be older and maybe more likely to enjoy it.
We spent plenty of time hanging out as a family, and on Saturday night I even went out with a few of my friends that I haven’t seen in ages! I saw most of them back in June for the first time since 2009. We all used to hang out regularly, I still can’t believe I’ve been out of the loop for nearly four years. It was a surprise party for one of the guys and it was tons of fun! I had one drink early on in the evening and spent the majority of the time just chatting it up and catching up with people.
I’ve been given very strict instructions to join them for drinks at least twice a month. They all meet up every Wednesday in town, so I’ll definitely be doing that. I’ve missed out on so much…I honestly feel like I was abducted or something. I don’t mean that in a terrible way, just that I’ve missed a lot and I’m on an entirely different level than all of my childless friends but I still get along with them all and enjoy their company.
I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve done that…go out to socialize with a group of my old friends. Sad huh? I can’t even begin to explain just how happy I am to be back, to be able to go to Andrew’s surprise party and see everyone. I can’t begin to describe how much I’ve missed all my friends here.
So, I had a fantastic weekend (minus some minor crumby bits). I hope everyone else had a great weekend too!
