I am linking up with Cindy, of Live a Colorful Life, for her Really Random Thursday. She writes such good random posts. You might want to hop on over there for more lovely randomness when you're done reading this post. :-)
So, the other day, I got a Facebook message that I was invited to an event: My 30th high school reunion.
30th high school reunion.
Yeah, I'm having a little trouble dealing with that one. 30th high school reunion. OMG. How did that happen?
I was going to dig up a high school photo for you, but frankly, it was too much effort. Maybe someday I will.
The downside: I won't be able to go. It's the same weekend as my Gruber's quilting retreat. Sorry. Not missing my retreat for my high school reunion. I haven't been to a single reuntion for high school. High school was hard. Not academically....just hard. I haven't had the desire to go back. I sorta wanted to this time. Too bad it falls on a bad weekend.
Do you go to your high school reunions? I just can't seem to get up the gumption to do it.
The upside: I struck up a conversation with the gal who is organizing it...someone I had always liked, though we were not close friends. We had about a 90-minute Facebook chat. It was really fun to catch up with her. I haven't talked to or seen her in 30 years.
It's been 30 years since I graduate from high school. Wow.
And my "baby" brother turned 40 years old on Thursday.
I'm feeling my age right now. Can you tell?
The downside: My favorite frosting for it is the Jiffy marshmallow frosting. I can't find it in the grocery store anymore. Boo hoo! I got this whipped vanilla frosting instead. It was not a bad substitute.
The upside: The only thing better than angel food cake is stale angel food cake. I love it when it get sticky. Haha!
The downside: She kind of wanted to grow it for Locks of Love, but she just couldn't get it long enough. Another is that Brittany, our hair dresser, is pregnant. She's taking 6 weeks off work when the baby comes. So, I will have to have someone else cut my hair a couple of times.
When Sweet Pea came home from Florida, she said she had really missed me. (All together now, "Awwwww!") So, we decided to make it a girls day out and just have fun together. We found a new frozen yogurt shop called Y'Opa. You can mix and match all kinds of frozen yogurt (some of it is Greek yogurt), and then pick from a bunch of toppings. You pay by the ounce. Sweet Pea wanted to try it. We had a lot of fun. Sorry the photo isn't so great. I took it with my phone.
The downside: Sweet Pea loves this stuff so much, she asks me every day to take her there.
The upside: She asked me to take here there again the other day, and I did. I got to have some, too. (Oh, maybe that could be a downside, too....for the waistline!)
The downside: As she was getting hers done, I commented on how nice her toes already looked. She then told me grandma took her for a pedicure last week! Sheesh....had I known, I would have had her get a manicure instead. haha.
The upside: Both our toes look really fantastic at the moment.
Last night, we decided to go out to eat. There is a family pub about 5 minutes from our house. On Wednesday nights they have $3.50 burger baskets (and the burgers are really, really good) and $3.99 pitchers of PBR. We decided we needed a burger and beer night. (When the weather is warm, we go there almost every Wednesday night!) Sweet Pea decided she also wanted to play pool with her dad. It was fun to watch them.
The downside: Nope. There isn't one. It was fun.
The upside: Cheap vittles, cheap drinks, a fun night!
The downside: His momma, Rosa, has up and disappeared. I have no idea where she has gone. She has been gone a week and a half now. I hope she is okay and that someone is taking care of her. We are all feeling pretty bad about it. We loved Rosa. Who knows. Maybe she'll show up again someday. :-(
The upside: Sweet Pea might be able to get a new kitten, which she's been wanting. But it's not worth it. We miss Rosa. At least we have Spidey, who is her son.
Happy Thursday! Hope you are having more ups than downs!
Until next time,
