My 10 year high school reunion was a trip! It was fun/interesting seeing so many of my classmates again. I'm a horrible long-distance-realtionshiper so there weren't many I'd kept in close contact with and there were soooo many people who I'd love to have seen but didn't come :( And it was surprisingly cliquish, go figure. But the funniest thing was when some guy told Jeff they remebered him...uh, he didn't go here haha, and then someone (I can't remember who!) referred to him as Mr. Autumn Tippit, good one!
Another thing the weekend offered was a chance to ask myself "What HAVE you done with the last 10 years of your life!?". I can't even explain how overwhelming that question became. It seems like so much of my doings won't be considered an accomplishment for a long time. Parenting is the biggest one. I've spent so much time learning and growing in this endeavor but do I really have anything tangible to show for it? Well, except for my children's apparent cuteness of course ;)
And, since I'm being honest here, I was also concerned with how I would look at the reunion. I did just have a baby but I didn't want people to think I'd let myself go haha. One thing I'd tell my teenage self is, "you're not fat, not even a little". The thing I miss the most about high school is the opportunity to play sports all the time. I totally did not appreciate that at the time.
Unfortunately my camera's battery was dead and I hadn't found the cord to recharge it yet so don't have any pictures of my own from the reunion. Can you tell I'm still completely disorganized from the recent move?
Here are some pics of the weekend from Meema's camera:
