Finally got to unwind.....

It's true what they say. Once a top is wound too tight it really needs to be gently unwound before it snaps. I finally got that chance the other night when my friend Mary Ann invited me over for dinner/BBQ. I got mom all settled in, and since she just mostly sleeps all the time now I had no qualms about leaving for a couple of hours. I made the mistake of drinking on an empty stomach and ended up plowed. I was worried about the drive home later on but every one there was in the same boat so I did get responsible and sober up before the drive home. Mary Ann is a supremo chef and we had the best BBQ shrimp and chicken and salad bar. The girl can put on a spread! I'm just now remembering that I left before the lemon bars were served. I wonder if there are any left?

As we waited for some late arrivers we started the BBQ going and forgot all about the fact that there was no light out there. Mary Ann and Carg each held flashlights in the dark while they barbecued. It was the funniest thing I have seen in a while. Or maybe it was the wine.....any way, it was a pretty funny site! You had to be there! (Imagine pitch dark. two very dim flashlights and two giggling cooks at the helm!) It really was funny! The morning after was the true testament to how good of a time I had. I was actually hung over!!! A good sign that fun was had by all when you wake up needing the hair of the dog!
The only bad part is waking up to the reality that I am still stuck at my mothers house caring for her and hating every minute of this triple digits heat. I need to figure out a way to get out of here for a few days and run up to Oregon for a massage and fun with friends. Any suggestions????
Thanks again M.A.! Had a grrrreat time!
