That was quite a whirlwind weekend!
We got home just before midnight last night. It feels like we’ve been away for several weeks in one sense and only a couple of hours in another. We packed a lot into those few days. Some of that will be examined here on the blog. A lot of it will simply infect my mood, so you’ll have to try to pick it up by emotional osmosis.
The super-quick version of events: The reunion was a huge success, a wonderful time, and a gigantic relief. I’m really glad I went. I even let E gloat a bit about her advice about the trip (i.e. that I should go) compared to my own insecure waffling. Prince Hamlet could have really used an E in his life, rather than his cast of Danish weirdos. Who knew that the secret to coming out to all your old college friends was the same as the Nike slogan (“Just do it”)?
Anyway there will be more focused posts with some more substance coming soon. I need some time to decompress, unpack, and finally get a shower with proper water pressure before I can be verbally coherent again.I just wanted to check in and let people know we made it back; all is well; and the plants survived our absence.
