Today was a great day. Bill and I spent almost all day in our garage cleaning it out. It was one of those things that has been on our list of things to do forever and it was ridiculously satisfying to finally cross it off the list, along with a few other "to do's" that came with it. I can finally park in my garage again, and that, to put it simply, rocks.
Tonight we had Partner Bunco. I haven't talked a lot about Bunco on my blog. It's something I've always just sort of taken for granted until I sit back and realize how amazing it is. I've been in the same Bunco group for at least 10 years. I remember hosting my first time at my parents' house and having my parents help me cut up the ingredients for taco salad. (Needless to say, I didn't cook.) I remember the Bunco where I announced I was engaged. I remember hosting in our tiny apartment after we got married. And being pregnant and miserable and missing a few Bunco's after each baby. The group has changed a bit throughout the years, but many of us are from the original 9. It's something I love being a part of, something I look forward to every month. Anyway, once a year our husbands or friends join us for Partner Bunco, and we all eat way too much junk and try to make each other laugh. For the first time ever Bill and I won High Score, which was a $40 gift card to P.F. Changs! I'm so glad I picked such a great place for the top prize when I bought the prizes.
My mind is reeling with excitement for my upcoming trip. I don't think about much else right now. At some point, I will have to come out of the Twilight Zone, but for now I'm enjoying the rush. I promise a million pictures, whether you want them or not. There probably won't be a picture of me and Kim cuddling in our queen-size bed, although Bill thinks I should come home with a T-shirt that says "I spooned in Forks." Do you think they make one?
