What's going on this weekend?
My weekend is crazy. Again.
Today I have an old friend coming to town. I haven't seen her in 18 years. We were super tight growing up, we swam together. She resurfaced on FB last year. We have talked a ton since then. The last we spoke, we had an apartment together. She disappeared every time the rent was due, and stayed gone until the payment window was over. I was forced to hunt down her dad month after month to get her share of the money. My dad always fronted her and her dad payed my dad back. Since we grew up swimming together our families knew each other well. Then she disappeared, taking several pieces of my furniture with her. We have cried together over the phone many times lately. I got a string of texts from her earlier in the week telling me how sorry she was for all the "*$?*" she put a lot of us through 20 years ago. She said she needed to run away and grown up; which she did. She is ready to mend all her fences and will be forever grateful for those of us that forgave her. I am going to cry a flood when I see her.
But with my knack for bad timing, of course both kids have practice tonight and then as soon as DD's is over, we are on the road headed for our tournament hotel. I am going to meet my friend and another of our friends for dinner. My mom will take DD to practice.
Then we are off to Louisville to play softball. Her tournament is an all day, one day, deal. We will be at the park from 6:45 AM- about 9:00 that night. So DD and I went out last night and got drinks and snacks. We're all packed up and ready to go.
Sunday DS plays baseball out of town (and Saturday but I will miss that). I will get to see him play then.
Cleaning house, laundry, grocery run? Who knows when that will happen.
