It was one of those shindigs where I should know a handful of people. The point of the shindig was something near and dear to my heart. In theory, that should be enough to get me out of the house on a Saturday night.
But 20 minutes before the party began, I was still in a t-shirt, no makeup, working on my rubber stamps website with a hungry dog at my side. Hmmm... what's up with that?
My evening went like this:
6:10 - Pull out of driveway
6:11 - 1/2 mile away, I cross the street my BFF lives on. I feel tremendous pangs of longing as I see her and Bart approaching. They are going to the creek. My BFF waves her arm in her ever so graceful way, her fingers signing "I love you" as she passes.
6:12 - Another stop sign. It's all I can do to NOT turn around, go get my girl and head to the creek.
6:35 - Find parking near party.
6:37 - Inspect catering truck outside of party (see previous post).
6:40 - Begin mingling
6:54 - Dash for the car
7:14 - Frantically pull into driveway, car horn blaring.
7:18 - Mabel & I arrive at the almost dark creek. We see 'Tilla and his dad in the distance. They join us for a frolic at the shoreline.
7:50 - Home sweet home. I change into a nightie, take off my war paint and curl up with my pup to watch a movie!
All in all, it ended way better than it started!
