Can It Be, nearly 20 years?


I got a rare treat today. I got to meet a friend for coffee. OK, that's not the rare thing, but to meet with This Friend was. Really we met in Elementary School and I had not seen her since High School, since my freshman year. See, I was going to NC my freshman year, and we moved to Carmel in the summer before my sophomore year. In the grand scheme of moves, we had very little notice, we just decided to go. Someone broke in our apartments backyard and stole our bikes, and graphiti'd our building, and that was our cue to exit. I wasn't able to let hardly anyone from my school know I was moving. I just didn't come back in the fall. I tried to keep in touch when we moved but really only kept in touch with 1 friend from that school, and that was because she ended up at Carmel the following year.

Anyway Thanks to Facebook, I have found a couple friends from high school (and elementary and middle)and reconnected. And Melissa was one that I've really connected well with. She's become such a neat woman, there's much to chat about, and her kids are amazing. So while both our older kids were in school today, we met for Coffee.

And it'd been raining here for days, so today was our first semi-sunny day. We sat outside, but then the sun moved into clouds, and we got cold, and the kids were miserable. The Mommies were having a great time, again, there's TONS to talk about but the kids weren't happy. I suppose it's a good thing that we got cold, otherwise I would've been SUPER LATE to pick up Chris instead of just a little late. ;)

I was doing the math on the way home, I realized that next month, it will have been 20 years since the last time I'd seen her. Oy.

Let's not wait that long to do that again!
