They Made It!!

Nath and Kristie made it right on time today!

I have to say I was antsy with anticipation and the two of them were lucky to only get a regular hug instead of the running leap of a hug my excitement wanted to give them. Yep, I was bouncy.

They both look great and I could see they had been having lots of fun.

First we chatted and caught up with each other and poor Bob was hovering waiting to see if we were going to Burlington (read Rona Home Hardware) and when we were going to eat.

Hours later we went to a local pub style restaurant that has a cute courtyard to eat in. I took pics so I'll post them next time (sorry, I'm achy and making potato salad for tomorrow and I have to get to bed so I can keep up with the ladies!)

We came back and Nath and I took a quick dip in the pool. I was worrying it was going to be too cold for me but I came up from my dive marveling at how comfortable the water was. Yay! Then the bugs started biting. Boooo.

We came in and then we video chatted with Ames for 3 hours.

I'll give you a minute.

3 HOURS!!!

I have to say it was fun but then I'm a huge nerd. At some point we wondered if we could all video chat with each other. Nath was on Kristie's brand new laptop and I had my laptop which also has a webcam. So we first tried gmail but it would tell me Ames was busy.

Then of course, I was all 'what about Skype' and dang if Ames and I didn't have the program loaded and running. Then Nath tried to join in the video chat but instead it just let us all talk without video. At one point Ames could see both Nath and I because Nath went through gmail while we were still in Skype.

Okay, so if anyone is still with me - do you know how to connect multiple computers up to see each person visually?

Cause I'm a dork.

But we were the first to see the new puppy Ames' mom got! I'm jealous. Both my cats were in hiding so I couldn't show Ames.

Oh and for those three hours of chatting Nath, Kristie and I were sitting on the floor.

Apparently 38 year olds are not meant to sit on a floor for that long. Bad floor.

Okay, I have to sign off. The potatoes and eggs are cooked so I should get that going and then I need to wind down.

My plan is to take 2 benadryl and a sleeping pill. This will have one of three results:

1. I wake up footloose and fancy free ready to take on the world. *cough*NOT*cough*

2. I will black out for 3 hours and wake up totally buzzed and unable to sleep.

3. I fall into a drugged sleep, my alarm will go off and I won't hear a thing, Bob will come up five minutes before we are to meet up with Lea and Mary to tell me I should get up, C-Rex will slaughter Bob and hide the evidence and try to act like getting up in the morning is a natural thing.

Thinking on it, I'm betting on 3 so I'll just take a sleeping pill and one of my anxiety pills (the normal way for me to sleep). At least then, if C-Rex pops in for a visit it won't be my fault.

No really.

I think I may have a legal loop hole I can jump through.

LOL, I had a great time yesterday night and I can't wait for you to wake up :) and see what of the 3 possibilities it's going to be :D

I'm so glad the ladies made it safely. It sounds like everyone's having a fabulous time! Please post pics later. :)

Nath - I thought it was funny when you said 'you seem to be in a good mood'. I didn't realize you had already read my predictions on what the morning could possibly hold ;)

LinnieGayl - we're having a ball. It's like family but without the stress ;)

Ames - I'm obviously a dork because I had a great time. Bob wants to see the puppy - you must post pics so I can nag him mercilessly for a new baby in my house!

Amanda - yep, we're doing well and some photos were taken. I saw a picture of myself and about fell over but oh well. I am what I eat ;) Lea took a candid shot and I turned and said 'could you at least give me a cue so I know to suck in my gut!'
