A Moment From My Former Life

Tonight I went out to dinner with #4, one of my best friends, whom I met on the Internet. We used to go out on "dates" quite often before she started law school last year and before I gave up my exciting, fulfilling life had Little Man.

Of course, we talked about my new life as a mom, but we also had discussions just like we used to -- gossiping about the crazy people we know (calling them crackers, in some cases, and not in a good way), our relationships (but this time mostly just hers -- she is planning her wedding! Whoopee!), and the food.

#4 and her boyfriend fiance soon-to-be-husband are also our trusty babysitters. Here's a photo of them in July, the first time we left Little Man without one of his parents.

Congratulations on your engagement plans to wed, my friends. I am so happy for you both. (And hopefully we can continue our dates when your life is SO enthralling as well!)

#4 and her man have de facto been "engaged" for years, so they're (total crackers) just saying that they're planning their wedding.

You're lucky to have so many friends to be close to. It has been hard for me to maintain these kid of relationships since having kids.

I LOVE it! I feel so honored to have such a great post written all about ME. I also had a wonderful time on our girl date last night - it was a moment from my former life as well. I tried to be the first comment up here last night, but our power went out and we lost internet access. Anyway, I just wanted to say I love you and thank you for being a great friend!

Woo, congrats to them! Good times.
& I hadn't realized that she is in law school.
De facto engaged, huh? ;D
