And you know what???The shopping and great food was not the best part. It was spending time with my "Classy Clowns". Before, we moved I had been in this playgroup for years....we have watched our kids grow. It was not the normal playgroup...we would start at 9:30am at a "house"...eat lunch together...around 3:00 one of us would go pick up the older kids...come back and around 5:00 do dinner!!! We had husbands who traveled...worked long hours...golfed and we made the best of it.

This is a one-of-a kind group...it's been almost a year since my family moved and I still miss them as much as I did the day the moving truck pulled out. True friends are hard to find...we are all different with different personalities but TOGETHER we have the "Housewives of Orange County" beat. These ladies are real, make you feel like mother of the year even when they have seen you at your worse, love your kids like their own, can make you laugh so hard you need "Depends", they are honest even when it hurts. They will sit in an Emergency room for hours with 8 kids who are crawling the walls to be by your side; they will drop everything to gather for a coffee to listen;they are honest with who they are, what they have, where they want to go and if they will "get there"
It was so hard to say "goodbye" on Sunday afternoon. For me it had to be quick and fast or I would cry like a "baby"!A couple of them said how much they miss me at breakfast and I couldn't even respond b/c I knew where it would go. Even though I have moved, the moment I am back with them..I feel like I did when we lived in the same town...it's like we left off and just started up at the next sentence we left off.
Sorry this not my normal type of "postings" but I am not good with words in "person". So I hope they will read it even though they NEVER leave a comment! hee hee!!! This Thursday Thankful I am thankful for friends especially ones who will give up a December weekend for us all to be together!
p.s. Thanks for another great weekend! New York City Next YEAR!!!Save Up!
