This weekend was the perfect blend of activity and laziness. Moon had a slumber party to attend Friday night, so JD and I got to have “date night”. We went to dinner and took advantage of the fact Moon wasn’t with us and ate Indian food. Have I mentioned that I’ve been to INDIA? It was great. We ate at a nearby restaurant named Taj Mahal (I’ve been THERE, too) and stuffed ourselves on Naan and Butter Chicken. Yummy. The only bad thing about the evening was when JD woke me up at 2 a.m. looking for stomach medicine, but all ended well when I was able to go right back to sleep. Whew.
Saturday morning, JD picked up Moon from her party, I picked up her BFF, Jemi, and we all went to a packing party. My dear friend, Carolyn, is moving away. She moved into our garage apartment 12 years ago when she was pregnant with her twins. Moon was 6 months old when her boys were born. They were her first friends, and are still her favorite people. Last year we got to spend a lot of time with them over the summer, and they went with us to my mom’s for a few days.
We’ll keep in touch through Facebook but who knows when we’ll actually get to be together again. It’s all VERY sad. So sad that after we moved 120 boxes into the moving truck, I came home and poured myself 2 glasses of wine from the large bottle Carolyn gave me for helping.
Where am I going to find another friend who knows me so well??
