My Weekend

I went "away" this weekend with two friends, who used to be my sisters-in-law. I haven't quite figured out what to call them yet. Hmmm...

Anyway...the weekend was sort of a prelude to my birthday which is coming at me at warp speed. Friday night at the restaurant, Meems drew this picture of me on the table. When she was finished I said, "Look! You can tell it's me 'cause there are no boobs!" She added boobs...

We had a great time mostly because no one had an agenda and we just let our day happen. Of course there were the requisite moments where I laughed so hard I cried (peed), when I ticked LJ off by being honest (insensitive) and I ate way too much (chocolate).

I'm so thankful for people who I can be absolutely myself with and they still love me in the morning!

I'm behind. I'm always behind. My intentions are good, but you know what they say about good intentions. So, no new posts from me for awhile. In September we all got the stomach flu (one at a time) and then half of us came down with colds. The computer followed suit and caught a virus. It didn't fare as well as the rest of us. The big purchase in October was a new computer!

So now I'm back...

I've decided my posts this month are going to focus on what I am grateful for. Fitting for November, hmm?

I'm starting with something that happened in July. My sweet girl was baptized. In our religion, children are not baptized at birth because they are sinless. We wait until they are eight years old and have a better idea about the concepts of sin and forgiveness. My girl waited patiently (sort of) until she got her chance. The day was worth the wait. She was baptized by her handsome cousin which, for me, was significant. I've known this guy since he was two. He's grown into a charming, funny young man and it meant a lot to have him officiate. It was a great day full of love, family and friends. A perfect combination.
