I’ve had such a nice weekend. For one thing I survived my last Friday with kids this year! Go me! Nearly as soon as school was out I head off to meet my blogging friend. And who was this friend – it was Katie, from This Whole Thing. She was visiting family not too far from here and we made plans to meet and have an early dinner.
Very early according to Mollie, she called just before Katie got there. I told her who I was meeting and her comment was, “Mom it’s 3:50 and you’re meeting for dinner? How old are you two?” She does make fun of Nick and I going out for early bird specials. But that was when Katie was coming through so…
And then in just a minute she was there. What a lovely woman. We hugged in the parking lot and headed in to visit. As we sat at the table Katie handed me a little bag. She had brought me a gift. I thought that was so sweet – but the content made me wonder if she had ever read my blog. Scroll down to see what I got…
I mean really, doesn’t she know I don’t cook? On well, perhaps I’ll find some use for them.
You might wonder if you can fine anything to talk about with someone you’ve just met. Evidently we did, four hours later we were still going strong. I text Nick sometime after we’d been there a couple of hours so he's know we were still visiting and that I hadn't been kidnapped or anything, and his reply was, “Yak yak, that’s fine.” So we talked on. We discussed everything from kids, parent, partners, spanking, submission, blogging and boggers and many more things. It was really a great visit and I hope we’ll be able to get together again.
My good weekend continues today, it’s my FIL’s birthday. Ninety-three years old. Do you think I should offer to take his birthday spanking? All good weekends must come to an end and Monday and Tuesday we have our end of grade tests. It’s only a four-day week, but it’s going to be a stressful one. The prize at the end, however, will be worth it – summer off!
Oh, and about the gifts Katie gave me? I turned them over to the cook in the family and Nick found a really great use for them. Thanks again Katie!
