I was a little bummed today because my friend Stephanie were planning to go to Raleigh today and stay overnight and spend some time with our friend Susan. Susan’s family has the flu and I’m sure she didn’t want company and we didn’t want the flu so we postponed to later in the Spring. I was looking forward to a day with the girls shopping and of course Starbucks. For those of us in small towns without a Starbucks this is the highlight of going out of town – I know it’s sad but true. But God had a way of working it out and I got to spend time with friends here. I took the kids to the library and met Boni there. Drew got to enjoy story time with Ava and Emma and Luke checked out books and played on the computers. After a stop by the grocery store we went to RJ’s for lunch with 3 other friends to celebrate Misty’s birthday. Most of us had our kids in tow (we all homeschool so we don’t get much kidless activity during the day) but we did scatter them out at different tables. Linda even made a cake! We had a great time just talking, laughing and celebrating. So, it may not have been Starbucks with old friends but I am glad not being in Raleigh meant a chance to hang out with friends. Happy Birthday Misty – since I have stopped having birthdays – you’ll catch up with me soon!
