Ok, so I'm trying to figure out a way to stay connected to my friends/family as I embark upon a new adventure: spending two years in South Africa and working with Peace Corps. This is my attempt at a blog, so bear with me...
I have Facebook and love Facebook, but I have friends/family that hate anything needing a log-in, so here goes. This is for you Aunt Bea.
I'm a notorious party grump but my family threw me a farewell party on Saturday. I'm such a notorious party pooper that my Aunt Kate has invited me to at least 5000 parties, of which I maybe attended two, and my former boss, Claudia McCrocklin with the Langsford Center, has actually paid me to attend a party. That's how much I don't like parties.
So, two of my favorite people on the planet, Deanna and Kim (my sister) threw this fabulous to-do and 60 of my peeps showed up to hug me goodbye. It was wonderful, it was perfect in every way, they worked their rear ends off for months, I showed up, had a great time, and now am exhausted.
The reason of the to provide an opportunity for good-byes. However, not everyone could come. In fact, a lot of people couldn't come. Now,I'm deluged with requests from family and friends wanting to see me off. I want to, but can't; there isn't any time. Ahhhhhhhh!
So, anyway, I'm packing and telling everyone, "would love to, but can't." What's a girl to do? I feel lucky, blessed, and wealthy in love, friends, family.
How's that for blogging? k
