The HS reunion was fun and just like some family reunions, a little goes a looong way. Friday night was a meet at a bar situation. From what I heard, the party moved from the original place to 2 others and the diehards ended up at some one's house or hotel until 6am Sat. Sad to say that my body starts flicking the lights around midnight these days and makes me pay for it if I stay up much later than that.
The tour of the HS was fun. They have completely remodeled the school so that there is really only 2 buildings left that were there when I graduated! P was giddy as we were able to look at the science wing - even though he wont be going there.
Now for the after effects - (RANT alert!!). Few friends I care to keep in touch with asked me to create a facebook account. Easier for communication - sharing of pics - whatever. So I create one, easy to do, find friends to chat with and do the whole round about of 'asking' to be included in their circle of friends. Then what to I get tonight in MY email but a notice that one of my "old friends" is asking to be placed in my circle.
The background story - She was a great friend of mine from Sophomore year HS on to end of Freshman year of college then we lost touch. Fast forward to my wedding. Somehow she finds out Im getting married, sends me a letter letting me know whats gone on in her life and wouldnt it be neet to get together. I respond in the affirmative but nothing happens - no response from her. Forward a few more years to last year. Im interested in how she is doing, find her email, exchange family info and what we've been up with. Offer to meet her for coffee after school starts (we both have kids) and hear NOTHING. For the past year, all Ive gotten is a couple email spamm (more of the "help send " " cards they are in the hospital and want to get 5000 cards before they die" or "send this on to 10 people and you too will get your wish granted). Ive actually been waiting for another one so I could reply back to let her know that if she doesnt want to really talk with me to remove me from her spamm sendings.
In my old age (lol only 38) life is too damn short to be waiting by the phone (or computer) waiting for anyone to call. I feel that Ive done as much waiting as I ever needed to do for this person and dont feel hungry for the promise of any more carrots!
On to sunnier things -
Other than the reunion, not much stitching on Sunflower House happened today. Ive been trying to find things that I HAVE to use the chart for so I can leave the block fill in's for MAX rides. I was able to sneak by A&T to pick up charts (YEA! stash!) and will have pics of those tomorrow.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments, they are great keeping me going on my projects :o)
