a choice... a journey not a destination... different things to different people... better than sorrow

Thursday was my friend Rebecca's grand 30th birthday. The big birthday celebration was last night with lots of friends and family and can I just say OMG I had a lot of fun. We all gathered for dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant and then those of us with more stamina rushed off to play laser tag. It was my first time and it was so much fun. We played from about 9 pm to Midnight and were completely worn out but it was well worth it. I think we gave the teenagers a shock. There were ten of us that descended on the place and gave them at least a little run for their money even though most of us had never played before. I think they expected us to only last through one or two games but we made it through 6 games. After that we ditched the husbands in the group for ladies movie time. We had grand plans to watch a couple of them but only made it through Step Up 2. Bad acting but the dancing was so fun to watch. It hit about 4 am and it was either pass out or go have breakfast so we trudged off to Atlanta Diner for a hearty breakfast before heading home. I was still running on some adrenaline and caffeine so asked who wanted to go shopping next. Fortunately no one took me up on that. After driving home and taking a shower it was in bed about 8 am. I think everyone had a lot of fun including Miss Rebecca.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
