A few weeks ago I was chatting with my best friend.
Also known as my puppyshaker.
It wasn't until I texted her something yesterday did I realize it sounds like we shake puppies with that nickname.
We do not.
In high school, usually before a football game, we'd go to cookout and get
A milkshake and hush puppies.
While we were chatting we were realizing that life kind of gets in the way of our friendship.
We've been best friends for over ten years now, and we've adjusted and changed as life has happened.
But since I've been married, we haven't spent any real quality alone time together.
[alone time together, only girls would get that, huh?]
We often talk about wishing we could.
And then it just hit me.
Why don't we?
The thing is though, when I go home, I feel the obligation/desire to spend all my time at my parents'
So I invite her over, but it's usually in the midst of a million people.
Or when she comes here 1) Mr. Husband is here 2) She usually brings the fiance/ Mr. Husband's best friend. 3) We have K9 responsibilities 4) if we eat, I have dishes, etc to do.
So tomorrow, we're meeting in the middle on neutral territory.
The men and the pups are staying behind.
And we have no set plans.
Nor do we know much about the town we're staying in.
Excited is an understatement.
