The Good Ol Days

A few weeks ago, after months (years?) of talking about it with Candace on facebook, I finally got around to organizing a Billie's Country reunion.(WHAT? You don't know what Billie's is? Or was? I'll tell you another time. I'm too tired to go into that all now.)

That reunion was tonight. Nine of the world's most creative people (plus me = ten) met at The Keg for dinner. And know what? No one has aged in the past decade. It's like a miracle.

Most of us are between 47 and 56 years of age.
We are the same age my mom was when she opened the store in 1987. (The same year Clint made her a grandma.)

Good, good memories.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Women were one of God's greatest inventions. We are pretty great.
2. Clint dropped by for something to eat minutes after I pulled into the driveway (uh. Have you been keeping track of how much I've been home this month? ONCE in the past 15 days. There is no food in this house.) but luckily I'm a MOM and we can pull together a meal out of thin air. And then he wanted to talk. Yay for having a child who talks. To me. Mind you, now it's 1:00 am and I'm tired and I was supposed to clean my house (remember that painting project from last week, where 4 rooms got taken apart and painted? Yeah, well, I haven't put them back together again) and maybe bake something green for the book club meeting that (due to a last minute changeroo) is going to be meeting at my house in 18 hours. I am thankful that I have not been bored or lonely for one single minute that Drew has been gone.
3. Drew is emailing-chatting with me as I type this. Guess I'll be staying up a little later. So thankful for technology.
