10 year reunion and other things

This was the busiest and most social weekend I think I've ever had.

First off, I got to spend it with Monkey which made it fantastic no matter what. And on top of that he came home for the weekend early and then found out that he gets to stay through today! Otherwise, I would have done this whole weekend by myself = much less fun.

So, let me give you the short list of our weekend:

- Hour and a half drive for a friends 21st birthday+hour and a half drive back+one quick nap at a rest stop at 4:30ish in the morning. It was very fun but we were determined to sleep in our own bed that "night".

- Monkey goes to little brothers parkor party. He had a blast and is still amusingly sore all over his body.

- I went for another two hour drive to a different friends graduation party for congrats and to see people I haven't seen in a very long time.

- Drove back home, picked up Monkey and went to my 10 year high school reunion.

I was on the fence about going to this for a very long time for various reasons. I gotta say, though, I am very glad I went. I wish I would have gotten there earlier so I could have seen more people. By the time I got there everyone was a few drinks into the night, so most of the greetings I got were very exuberant. :)
I received quite a few compliments. Kinda an ego boost I must say. I have changed quite a bit since high school. And, I actually received a few apologies from people for being mean to me when we were younger. I held no grudges. I know we were all kids. Not that I condone bullying in the least bit, or write it off as something that kids do. But, I recognize that these people have grown up and are not the same people they were when we were children.

Anyway, it was an interesting and fascinating experience to see how people have changed and how they've stayed the same. I do believe I am looking forward to our 20 year. At least, right now I am.

I have been extremely bad at taking pictures lately so I have none to share with you. There was one group of friends that I really wish I had taken pictures with, though. I was just so caught up in it all.

Did you/will you be going to your 10 year reunion?

Oh, yeah. And then on Sunday in lieu of a run we went furniture shopping and picked out a bedroom set! Yea! This will keep me satisfied for while in the grown-up house department. I just couldn't stand any longer only having a bed frame and no nightstand and not enough space for my clothes. We picked out an actual bed, with a headboard and footboard and everything; a couple nightstands, and a dresser. We wanted the wider one but it wouldn't fit in our teeny tiny bedroom so we had to do that tall skinny kind instead of the shorter wide kind. Oh well, it still gets the clothes off the floor! And we got a really good deal. It will be delivered next week (hopefully)! Incredibly excited. Becoming adults, one important purchase at a time.


  1. I did not go to my 10 reunion. It was held over Thanksgiving weekend and I was with family 2 hours away. It was my last unmarried Thanksgiving and spending it with my family was more important to me. I'm glad I did!

  2. My 10 year reunion is still a couple of years away, but I plan to attend. I went to 3 different high schools though, so I kind of wish I could go to all three! LOL and we still need to buy a bedroom set, not grown-ups yet. :)

  3. I didn't go to mine. I couldn't justify spending the money for plane tickets for myself and our two boys (it was right before a long deployment, so Hubby was busy) to fly from Hawaii to New Hampshire. I wish I had gone, but hopefully the next one I can attend!
