A Blast From The Past

I got the stranges phone call last week... It was my old friend Andy calling me to make "plans" to go to Milford and visit some old friends of ours.  The strange part is, Andy doesn't EVER make plans in advance. He is famous for calling 20 minutes before he walks out the door to invite you along on a wild journey.   But Andy recently got married, and he is trying to change his ways.... which is wildly convenient for ME.
  So we made our plans, and piled into his RV on Saturday afternoon and hit the road.  Our trip brought us to a couple who I have not seen since 2000.  Funny how time stands still... they look exactly the same as the last time I saw them, just more domestic and with 2 adorable boys running around the house.  We spent the night talking about the kids, having a fabulous dinner and reminiscing about old times, with a couple interruptions from a crying child or one who wandered out of bed.  The diffrence was, midnight came and we all went to bed...That would NEVER have been the case 10 years ago.  But even though we didn't party like we used to, it reminded me why I always enjoyed their company so much. They are funny, and easy to be around and know how to relax and laugh at themselves....and each other. I am really hoping to see them again sooner rather than later!!
  We got home Sunday alot later than we expected and had to hustle to get the regular weekend chores done (at least the bare necessities) I went grocery shopping while Henri cleaned up the laundry.  I bought Carlie the movie "The Pricess and the Frog" and when everything was put away, we all piled onto the big bed and had a great time watching it, tickling each other and laughing alot.  All in all it was a great weekend... I wish it could last a few more days weeks!  I love how the days are longer now, it seems like we get more out of each one.
