I had the most marvellous day.
This week has been insane. I seriously felt like I was drowning beneath the million things I had to do, and as each day melted into the next I felt like it was impossible to keep up. When I finally left work on Friday and realized that I had two days that were just mine to do with as I please, it was absolutely exhilarating.
The Hubster and I enjoyed a lovely date night of dinner & a movie last night as he introduced me to The Bodyguard–somehow I’ve lived all these years and have never seen it. I LOVED it. I haven’t been that riveted through a movie in a long time, and it was the perfect blend of action, romance and music.
And then I got to spend this afternoon with two of my favourite people in the whole world. Bo Bandy and Star are my best friends from my first year of university, and we finally managed to all get together today.
(It only took us 4 weeks to plan it. haha)
Star and Bo Bandy prepared a fabulous pasta lunch, and we spent hours catching and talking up.
We spent three hours talking before we realized just how much time had passed. Star and I are both teachers, and Bo Bandy will be joining us when he graduates teacher’s college this spring. I kind of wish that we had all been able to go to teacher’s college together at the same time as our one year together at Ghetto U was one of the best years of my life, but, alas, it wasn’t to be.
I love spending time with them because it’s just so… easy. Maybe that sounds a little strange, but we just fit so well together. It doesn’t matter how much time has passed, as soon as we sit down it’s like we’re family.
We don’t see each other nearly as often as I’d like, but I hope to remedy that in the future.
And I’m secretly-no-so-secretly hoping that Bo Bandy will find his dream job in my school board and move out here! Then the two of us and peer pressure Star into transferring and moving out here too… then we can all work in the same school and live happily ever after.
