Sunday Snippets

So this week clearly didn’t make the “blog 4-5 times a week in April” challenge. In my defense…well, no. I could have made time, but I just focused on a lot of other things instead. On to the next week!

A friend of ours from college died unexpectedly last week. We hadn’t spoken with her in a few years beyond the usual Facebook chatter, but she was one of those people who was just a light in any room she was in, and it’s been hard to think of her being gone. N.C. is going to her funeral this week & it just feels so wrong for someone from college to be needing a funeral already. She wasn’t even 40.  Just…it’s just shit, you know?

Because I love my kid, and he wanted us to do it, I played in the mother/son kickball event at his school on Friday. We had a lot of fun–there was very little adherence to any kind of rules, we all ran all over the place like loons, and everyone laughed and laughed and laughed. My foot and ankle maybe didn’t have as good a time, but held up, & even though that’s not my kind of thing, I’m really glad we did it together.

We went to a friend’s 40th birthday party last night, and it was such a lovely, low key affair–we all had a great time. They had a margarita machine as the big extravagance of the party, and DAMN that’s a good idea for a grown up party. Or a terrible one, it may depend on how you indulge. 😉

I’ve been doing a fair amount of socializing and interacting, and it’s been good. It’s nice to feel like we’re starting to have an actual village and community, and friends, and people we can call on, and who call on us. It’s just a nice part of life right now.

It’s a gorgeous sunny day, and it’s my turn to make mojitos, so I’ll close it out here. Have fun & be good to each other!
