This past weekend I attended my high school reunion! Honestly, with Facebook around it seems like reunions are a thing of the past. What’s the point of getting together to brag about your accomplishments if everyone has already seen them all over your Facebook? I have to say though, it was awesome. Seriously! And most people weren’t even bragging. Actually the only bragger was my high school boyfriend. He was very excited to go on and on and on about how awesome he is now *insert eye roll*.
It’s crazy how different people can look but still look the same at the same time. I found out one girl and I had actually lived super close to each other for a few years and may have even passed by one another a few times. Knowing I was going to be seeing her today, she was easy to recognize but if I had just randomly passed her on the street I probably would never have thought twice that I knew her.
I was super nervous to attend this because I barely remember high school and I was nervous I wouldn’t recognize anyone (or truthfully, it would have been worse if I wasn’t recognized!) but I did recognize people (and they recognized me!!)! I couldn’t really remember experiences we shared from high school but I knew their names, well about 95% of their names.
David was super sweet and stayed home with Sadie. I’m not sure why but I was nervous to ask him if I could go out. He goes out practically every Saturday night and I am the one who stays home so I knew that he wouldn’t deny me my one night out. I think part of it was that even though I sometimes miss my old pre-mommy life, staying up late, parties, drinking, sleeping in till noon, I don’t mind that I traded it in for a chubby cheeked poop machine who wakes up at the buttcrack of dawn (7-8am SO EARLY!). Maybe I was nervous he’d say yes and then I’d have to go socialize with adults which I’m pretty lousy at now-a-days.
I did it though…and I did it well! I didn’t get home until 2:30am (eek!) and boy was I exhausted! But when Sadie woke up hungry at 3:30am, it didn’t bother me one bit to go in there and give her the teat… or again at 7am. I did let David wake up with her at 8:30 though (because I knew she wasn’t hungry) and he let me sleep in until 10:30! Prolly would have stayed in bed for the rest of the day if I could have! This momma may only be 28 but Sunday morning I felt like I was 90! There was a time in my life where 2am was early in the night and there was plenty of time left to party, that time is not now and will probably never be again!
In the end, I’m glad I went to my reunion, but I’m also very glad it’s over with. If we have another one in 10 more years, I’ll probably go again, I’ll also probably go home earlier lol! Lesson learned, 28 is not the new 21!
