So you thought I was kidding when I said I was going off radar for a few weeks! Whew! I love August, but then I hate August too! I love reunions, I love my raspberry patch, I love the smell of the fresh cut hay behind my house, I love early mornings working in my yard, I love camping and everyone trying to squeeze in a little more fun time before school starts. But then I hate the heat, I hate the anticipation of the heat going away and winter setting in upon us too soon, I hate school starting up again and everything on our road being so quiet. So I guess you could say August and I have a love-hate relationship!
So where do I start? Well, our class reunion was actually the 29th and 30th of July and it was a success! It was so much work, but so worth it! I think at 52-54 we are realizing our mortality and wanting to get close again. We are already planning a dinner or luncheon around October, because 5 years is just too dang long to wait to get together again!
It is hard to realize that Melanie and I are both grandmas! I remember when the most important thing in our lives was deciding what outfits we going to wear so we coordinated with each other! Now we both have awesome (and stressful) careers and blossoming families (mine is a tribe, actually) and suddenly we are looking more like our moms than our high school pictures. Mind boggling!
Well enough for today! Tune in tomorrow for another installment of my July-August travails! There is still much to come!
