Last week, my friend Sheila invited me out to dinner which was planned for last night. Of course I immediately jumped on the offer because it had been a long time since I had a girlfriend night out. I don't think I informed Bill of my plans until the night before when he told me he had to work late...I responded, "Well I have plans and you need to be back so I can be there at 7pm" No compromise on my part was offered. Luckily he was nice enough to agree...I guess my birthday mojo is continuing for just a bit longer.
I arrived at our planned meeting place, Tijuana Flats, at about 7:15 (meeting time was 7:00 pm...I'm time challenged, have I ever shared that?!). Well I walked in and not only was Sheila there to meet me, but my friends, Brenda, Jenny, and Jan. What a cool surprise. It has even been longer since we've been able to get together for our GNO gang (sans two missing members, Linda & Terri). We ate, drank, and just talked the night away. I remember in the beginning of the night being so excited to be with my great friends and looking forward to what we were going to do next and being slightly disappointed that we were just going to stay there. But then, later being so thankful, that we just hung out and caught up with each other. I miss these guys so much!...we all used to work together and saw each other everyday, but for one reason or another (mostly the wenchbag I wrote about here) moved on to other opportunities. I was so luckily to work with such great people and friends; the convenience of work made our friendships effortless and strong. Now with the convenience gone, we have to schedule our time, but our friendships remain just as strong. I know that whenever I need them, they would all be there for me.
