Girl's Night Out

That Stupid Weather that Aser is talking about must be a large trough, because I was pretty much worthless all day at work. In fact, the whole week has been like trudging uphill though Crisco.

What pulled me through was knowing the girls were going to have a chick flick night.

Even that didn't work out - the movie closed last night. We are flexible. We decided to go out for dinner instead, and what a serendipitous decision that was. We told stories, dreamed, encouraged each other, and laughed, laughed, laughed. No movie in the world is as good as sharing laughter with your friends.

From there, we went to Half Price Books, and stayed until they ran us out. Then we moved on to Borders for coffee and knitting, and stayed until they ran us out. We asked for, and offered, advice. We teased each other. We commiserated about the bad things that had happened during the week, and congratulated the good things. We made plans for our next three get-togethers.

The amazing thing is, there is no real reason why these amazing women are together. We didn't all meet at school or work or church or in the neighborhood. Our backgrounds are different. We just sort of took up with each other one by one. In fact, I have no recollection of how one of the members got with us. I just remember she was there, and now we can't imagine her not being there.

I love us. I don't know what I ever did without us.

We are planning a road trip next Friday. You might want to steer clear of Omaha until we are finished with it.

Man, your right. A group of your own friends can make your life!
Have a safe trip. Please leave the roads in a suitable condition for others after your done with it.
I'm pretty sure you don't want to be responsible for tax going up! :P
