work was a little crazy today, ya know?! arrived at 7:30, worked on memorials. meeting at 9-11. meeting in the same room at 11-11:45. meeting at 11:30, which i missed because the other meeting went long. grabbed lunch & a break & worked on email & continued w/ memorials. meeting at 12:30-1. worked on more email & memorial stuff. worked on claims & vacations, getting things done for being gone. set my out of office. left at 4:40.
i was meeting juli & linda & erin at happy joe's, so i had to take the bridge that's under construction again. parking lot. oye! *laugh* and it was HOTTT out again. :| but it really wasn't too bad, and ppl weren't jerks about merging, so that was a plus! *laugh* and we all pretty much got there at the same time, so it was all good! : )
hugs hugs hugs & it was sooooo nice to see linda & her kiddos after a year!! it was nice to see juli & the kids, and erin, too, but i see them a little more often. heh. we ordered two pizzas, half sausage/pepperoni, and half cheese/supreme or garden or something like that. *laugh* they were nommmy! well, i assume they were all good, i just had the sausage. oh, i guess i did have a slice of the pepperoni, which i wasn't a fan of, but that's because i love their sausage so much! heh.
the kids were sooooo happy to be together again & hanging out. sarah & amanda mugged for the camera...
the famous "heart" pose
shirt over the nose
morphed into ninja-sarah
sharing the ninja-ness!
this was not her best idea, but it was funny!
then she got The Look from her mom & decided to PRETEND to drink thru her shirt... LOL
genuine, amused smiles
and funny faces for sarah, sweet smile for manda!
then they all went to play & the adults visited. it just felt good to be hanging out w/ linda. i really miss her!! and since juli & i live just down the road from one another, we really need to get a hang out schedule going like erin & i have started!! *laugh* it is nice to not feel like we are "catching up" every time, but that we are just free to hang out & stuff ya know!?
Julia (Juli) - Mom to Sarah & Andrew; Linda - Mom to Amanda & Henry
Erin & I
Linda, Erin & I
Linda, Erin & Juli : )
we hung out for a few hours, and the boys got their chance to mug for the cameras. : )
sarah, andrew & henry all have july/august birthdays, so they got to have a song, horn blowing, and sundaes!
and then it was time to go - we left a little after 9 (we got there at 5:30, so that was 3 1/2 hours of visiting - and could have been longer but we were all getting tired, including the kiddos! lol) & stayed in the parking lot chatting for another 10 minutes or so. heh.
love it! i brought erin home & got to my home a little after ten.
talked to mom for a minute - she & leyton are picking me up around 10 or 11 tomorrow. then it's off for our ADVENTURE! phil's house/Angel-sitting, so that's cool beans. : )
soooo ready for VACATION! thank You, Lord, You ROCK! : )
