It's 3:30am and we're just getting home. All of my friends are a bad influnce. However, I did have a wonderful time. My classmates looked great...heck, we are only 48 years old. How bad could that look? Our 7th grade teacher, John Galbreath showed up which was quite a hit. Thanks Mr. G. I've had a little bit of wine tonight I must admit, but I'm very clear on how nice it was to see so many of my high school buddies.
That 1st paragraph was written when I got home. I had to do a little spell and grammer check (if you know what I mean). It is now 11:30 am. We just got out of bed. Seems like we really are in high school - go to bed at 3:30am then wake at noon. Oh, how our parents must have loved us.
Now that my head isn't so "foggy" I want to share some special moments. Cathy and Reid met me a little early for a bite to eat before the event started (That really worked out well for me, I might add...I invited them to dinner and they paid. - Thanks again). From the second I got there, I knew it was going to be fun. Reid pretended to be my "husband" to the waitress so he could charge things on my credit card (this went on all night long).... Kathy DeWater Holt brought me a beautiful flower pot to let me know that she was thinking of me. Linda Pearson, an early childhood friend, who lives in Tenino said she and her daughter read my blog every day (Hello girls). My dearest friend Kathi came and I couldn't have been happier. She and her husband Chris kept us laughing most of the night. I was touched by how many people keep up to date by reading this. Thanks to Dave Rygmyr, Kirk Shroyer & Karen Williams for putting this reunion together. Janice Cunningham provided us with beautiful flower arrangements and JR and Vicki Dorsey provided the after reunion party - which was a noisy, hilarious, we've gotta do this again, BLAST! (Thanks for your generosity...and the 2002 Merlot)
The one area I didn't do so well in was the photography department. I forgot a camera. However, I did have my camera phone which takes very high quality pictures (NOT). So, I don't have any pictures to share with you. Please just take my word on this one. Thanks again friends for adding one more special time in my already overflowing memory bank.
Dream Big, Laugh, Sleep In if you need to ~
