A bunch of moms from playgroup met up on Friday night after I sent out a desperate email titled, "need a drink". Turns out we'd all had one of those days with our small charges and drinking was a must. We had a blast. Natalie surreptitiously videotaped me and Luci under the guise of taking a photo. The result is somewhat incoherent. I was on drink number three by then, so what the hell:
You're really hoping you're one of my Flickr friends right now as I was the obnoxious camera lady, pointing and capturing people at their best. I left the truly awesome ones offline as I really adore these women and don't want them to shun me. Although this one of Luci is freaking priceless and had to be posted. She'll be thrilled I kept it to "friends only."
But lemme tell you, blowing off a little steam did wonders for my marriage, parenting and life. I was so much happier after spending some time with friends acting nothing like a mother. I didn't even grumble when I had to get up before the sun to work the next morning. Nope. Didn't care, I was just too happy. So we're making it a monthly thing. Which I think is awesome.
Anyone care to join us for a drink?
