I go all out. At least that is what I was told. It is true, I hardly ever go out. A few weeks ago I got to go out with some blog friends. We all met last year and I was not about to pass up the chance to hang out with them again. The very next night, David and I went out to a Spurs game. They won. I was exhausted and spend the next few days taking it easy.
Fast forward to this weekend. And it was all over again. Except with later hours. Friday night we went out with another couple. I don't think we have ever been out on a double date type of thing before. But we had a really good time. It was nice to just kick back and relax. Talk and laugh. I'm thankful for them. We got home way past bed time. Probably more towards wake up time. Thankfully the boys took it easy on us when they woke up.
Saturday, I got to sleep in. Thanks Babe! It was a big day for me. I headed to Sea World, without the kids or David. I have to admit, at first I was feeling pretty bad. I mean who goes to out to the park with out their kids? Quite a few people actually! It really was such a fun time. We got to have milk and cookies with Santa. We watched the dolphins. Had dinner. Went to a few shows. There was constant laughter and just all around fun. Some of these ladies get together quite often. But for someone who is pretty much stuck at home all week with no where to go, this was amazing. No one was judging me. No pity faces. No chatty cliques. Just smiles and hugs. It was just what I needed. I came home so tired but somehow so refreshed. Sunday disappeared between cat naps and cleaning.
I feel good. Inside and out. I'm excited for all the new year will bring to me and my family. I have truly been blessed with old friends and all the new ones. I'm looking forward to our next get together. To learn and grow with this group. Both here on the blog and in life. If there was one gift I couldn't have ever asked for its their love and support. For a whole weekend I got to almost forget all the worry and pain of being sick. I felt like a part of the the group. A part of the world. And that's not something that happens very often. So I'll take what I can get and be ever so grateful for it.
