Great weekend coming
I have a really great weekend planned. Nick and I are off on a special trip. Not only do Nick and I get to steal some time away together, we get to meet up with my twin and Adam.!! (And for all you new folks, Eva is a fantastic blogger that I met here in the summer of 2006. As we became friends and found that we had so much in common we became – the twins) We haven’t gotten to see Eva and Adam since New Years and three months is long enough.
But even more special than getting together with only Eva and Adam, on this trip we are getting to meet two more friends. We are going to be meeting Mthc and David, two long time friends and commenters. They have also written several Fantasy Friday stories. Now we’ve all been talking multiple times a day for over a year but we have never gotten to actual meet them before. David has had some serious medical issues and he is still having some problems but he is improving and we are all anxious to meet – Mthc is one of us now, the triplets.
Mollie just shakes her head at all my friends out here. The other day she said “Mom you know you have done every single thing you had warned me not to do on the computer. Talking to strangers, giving out you personal information, inviting these internet people to the house and traveling across the country to meet some. Now really is this setting a good example for me?”
She grinned when she said it because Eva is one of her favorite people and Mollie has been to her house a couple of times too. But she’s not wrong. Those are all the things we always warn our kids about. So as she stands there – hands on her hips – tapping her foot at me I couldn’t help laughing at her.
“You’re right” I told her, “And your rules are still the same, but” I added “I didn't start doing this until I was 49 years old. After you turn 49 I’ll let you use your own judgment.” I think that seems fair.
