Reconnecting

This year for me it seems to be a year of reconnecting
especially with old friends

I talked about face time here

well I was lucky enough to meet up with another
friend from the past and what a time!

When I was a teen growing up
we had a youth group in our community
and part of that was teen dances every Friday night
at the local community center.


Diane ~ although only 6 years older than I 
was one of the chaperones ~ the dj's girlfriend at the time
but she connected with us kids
and me especially

she made an impact on my life
and we kept in contact for years after 
she moved back to her home in Ontario
and then on to Alberta.

We lost contact in the early 90's
then I found her again in '03

of course now with Facebook
we keep up with each other and I was so excited 
when I found out she was coming east for a visit


I only worked a part day on Monday
so she met me at work and we went out to the
center to relive our past


it has changed so much over the years
and even I was taken back when I walked through the door

we then came back to my place
sat on the deck ~ had some drinks
looked at pictures and just caught up

it was a great day....

the rest of the week has been a whirlwind
I am home sick today ~ past the tissues please
spring colds are maddening and I have way to much to do
to feel this horrible!

Happy Thursday.

Aw, you poor sweet thing. I do hope you are over your cold really soon! Drink lots of alcohol, it kills off germs! That's my story and I am sticking to it! Love that you found your friend again. Looks like you two had a great time! Walks down memory lane are so much fun! I found my best friend from high school on facebook and I am so glad that I did! I love her as much now as I did then! Rest up and feel better!
