A Great Week

My Old Friend, originally uploaded by scoobers1.

Last week was a great week. I turned 34, got to go to Vegas for the first time, visited with a friend I have not seen in 10 years and spent a few days with the family. How much better can life get?
Vegas was a blast. It was everything that I thought it would be and I am definitely planning on going back.
The day after we got back, I jumped in the car, picked up my niece and headed down to Tucson for a couple of days. Pretty great birthday-weekend, if you ask me.
Thirty four is not such a bad number. It's when I hit 35, my mid-thirties, that I may start to panic a bit. My friend's mom, Sandi, sent me an email last night and told me that she had seen the pictures Jenni took while she was visiting Tucson. She was shocked to see that I am 'all growed up', 'a grown woman'.
Sandi, you are not nearly as in shock as I am. I still see, in my sister, that little girl from way back when and am a little fazed when I think of the two of us as 'adults'.
Seeing Jenni as a wife and a mother blew me away. She is so grounded, mature and such a good mom but I still see my old friend, who came to every one of my birthday parties, in there.
Another reality check? It was brought to my attention that my 20 year HS reunion is coming up in 4 years!
My niece will be a TEENAGER in one year.
Time goes by so fast. I can only hope that I am spending it well and that everything will continue to fall into place.

Kathy - it looks like you've done a great job so far - my guess is you will continue to thrive. Love the picture of you and Jenni. Only thing missing are the top hats and the tuxedo jackets!

A momentous weekend, indeed! I love that picture, BTW.

It is strange to think that we are both "adults." No more can we walk around with post-its attached to our eye-lashes and noses, singing "Oh what a beautiful morning!" It was strange enough 22 years ago. I'm almost positive such behavior would be frowned upon now.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to my "older" friend. ;)
