With A Little Help from My Friends

And just like that I feel centered. This weekend the girls were over to hang out. We haven’t gotten together in a little bit, but thanks to e-mail we were able to figure out a date fairly quickly. We initially meant to go for a hike at one of the mountains in the area, but we decided to then go for a shopping hike around the outlet mall.

It was a little odd for me. I haven’t gone out and purchased things for myself in a very long time. So I kinda, sorta felt bad because I bought myself a few things. And yeah, they were things I genuinely needed. Well, I did buy Popsicle molds but they will come in handy… okay so they were mostly for the wee one. No worries though. A few bottles of wine and I forgot all about the pesky, mini shopping spree.

I also took this as an opportunity to help out a friend. My friend who has been going through a rough patch needed some time away from home. I think the weekend surrounded by other women who’d be able to just listen and provide some fairly unbiased perspective would do a world of good. I think it helped a lot.

But yes, it was a great weekend, even if a bowl got sacrificed to the party gods. :) Olé!
