Just a Gliding

Tonight Nan and I took a new class at the gym. It's called Gliding.

To give you an idea what it was like... imagine standing on a Frisbee on an ice skating rink. It was pretty tricky. I felt like I was going to be forced into doing the only split I've ever done in my entire life. I'm definitely going to give it another try because I think it's a great concept and it's supposed to be a great workout for your thighs and bum. Lord knows, I need all the help I can get with mine.

I had lunch today with a friend that I have not seen or spoken to in over 14 years. I worked with her when I worked for an eye doctor in Snellville. I left there to begin my court reporting career. She's still there and will be celebrating 25 years there in February. She was like a big sister to me, partly because she's 10 years older than me, but mostly because she was just that kind of friend. In fact, she was a bridesmaid in my wedding.

Somehow, we lost touch. I never called her and she never called me. I thought of her often and wondered if she still worked in the same office. Monday, while I wasn't laboring, I thought of her and decided to track her down. After looking at about 100 girls with her same name, I realized she wasn't on Facebook. So I decided to Google the doctor we worked for and see if he perhaps had a web page. Lucky for me he did. And even luckier for me, she still works there and her e-mail address was on the site.

I e-mailed her that minute and she replied to me first thing Tuesday morning. We scheduled lunch and went to have Chinese. That was always our favorite lunch. I can't tell you how good it was to see her. So much had changed in her life since I had last talked with her. She got divorced, became a grandmother and lost her parents. It was if we just picked up where we left off in our friendship. I'm so excited to have reconnected to such a special friend. This time I'm not going to lose touch with her. She's a keeper.

Eli had his first ever cavity filled this morning. Suz sent me this picture of him. Look at that preciousness sitting so still and straight while getting his little cavity filled. It's so sweet that I can hardly stand it!

And tonight, she sent me this picture. I think it might be Eli's first ever love note.

All I can say about that is that Becca is one lucky little girl!

Hope everyone had a great day! I sure did.

Till next time.

He did look very brave.

Gliding sounds interesting but if there is any chance of falling, I would be out. I am too clumsy to start with and I have a phobia of falling as well. I don't think I could glide :)

It is wonderful to reconnect with old friends....and the good ones never really leave our hearts.

I have never heard of gliding...seems like exercise classes are changing all the time. and if I ended up doing the splits, I'd probably have to be in traction
