On a lighter note...

I've been feeling better lately. The days get easier. I know it won't ever be fully out of my mind and I really don't want it to be. I want to remember. And I want to thank everyone who has called, emailed, and visited with words of support. Your efforts did not go unnoticed and I appreciate you. Your concern made me realize that opening up is not such a bad thing.

Oh? Did I title this post "On a lighter note..."?

So I did. And that's because last night I met BOSSY! You know, of iambossy fame. Click on over there if you've never heard of her. She's hilarious.

P.S. What happened to my hair?
Bossy's looks fabulous - even though she complains about it.

We had a large time and I'm feeling fine this morning. Pre-party last night I made sure I was hydrated, caffeinated, and pre-medicated (Excedrin, people, nothing serious). Just in case. Not quite the girl I once was. We met at Fridays and moved it on over to Avitable's (Side note: Do not click on Avitable if you are easily offended. Of course, most you will now click on Avitable just because I said that.) house where Amy served us some fine wine. It was wonderful to meet other bloggers even if I don't necessarily consider myself a "blogger" yet.

Everyone was friendly and talkative and I even learned how to dye our pool red for possible future Halloween parties. Who knew? We drank and ate and drank some more. Hopefully, we might all get together again. Thanks, BOSSY, for such a snazzy, bloggy-love-fest idea.

It was also nice to be out of the house by myself. On the way home, I drove around for a bit with all the windows down just being Emily for a while. Not mommy or wife or any of the other roles I sometimes play. Roles I sometimes lose myself in, which is fine, but it was nice to find "me" in there somewhere.

Had a great time hanging with you last night. Your hair was just fine. Course, I'm a guy...what the heck do I know?

It was really nice meeting you, too. I was glad to get out of the house as well. I can be LOOONG weeks not being able to have time to yourself.

I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I wish you all the best.

Avitable said...

Thanks for coming! It was nice meeting you, and I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk more.

We'll have to do another Central Florida blogger thing again sometime.

Emily-nice to meet you last night. And funny, while we were there I was thinking that you have nice hair! I kid you not!

I'd definately be up for doing it again when you need another "mom's night out"

I thought your hair was fabulous.

Thick AND shiny. So jealous.

And... talkative. Heh. I was thinking this morning "good GOD I do not SHUT UP!"

Sounds like a great time! Also great to be just "you" for a while - I struggle to find time for me also!

I wrote my Bossy post yesterday and posted pictures - don't forget to go check it out.

You're both gorgeous.
