Brian had yesterday off, so we went into IA to do some shopping and have an early lunch at Red Robin. We went to have lunch in the bar, but we were not going to drink. As we walk into the bar, I hear, "Jen? Is that you, Jen Robinson?" I immediately know it must be someone from WRG, but I look at him, and I'm at a total loss (my mind immediately went to the last time that happened when I was going home for my 10 yr. reunion. This other guy did the same thing, then even told me his name....and I still didn't get it, and then he says quietly, "we graduated together." Now, mind you, I graduated w/ 34 people. Then, it rang a bell...not only was it a classmate, but it was also the guy I made out w/ at our Senior party. Talk about feeling like a dick). So, here I am again, and thank God "Pete" has a nametag on. Then it clicked, he's on my facebook. It was Pete Koch. What a small world! It was so, so good to see him! It really made me miss home, and all of the good friends from along the way. So....then instead of having iced tea...I went w/ the Wrangell standby, Coors Light. We stayed for 2 or 3 hours and then the party continued once we got back to the Nut. Brian and I grabbed some dinner and had a drink. Then, I went next door to the shit hole bar, where a super cool gal I met last weekend was bartending. It was like being at the Brigg! There was a bunch of nice older men, of course pervy, but harmless. Holy smokes! I had so much fun! I had the jukebox rocking and then some of the guys put together a card game to teach me how to play 3 card? I think it was. I still don't know how to play, even though I did it for a few hours. Finally at 10:30 Brian calls, and says, "are you ready to come home?" lol I guess I was. God bless him for putting up w/ me, and letting me do my own thing when I thought I needed it. However...today I've been paying for my unexpected day of drinking. What a slug. I finally pulled myself together about 3 to get some cleaning done, etc. It's now 5, and I'm still moving slowly.... Oh well. I really did have a good time yesterday, and I really needed it.
So. The diet has not been good the past 2 days, but I haven't eaten a ton. I've just consumed huge amounts of calories from alcohol.
Today has also been a day of healing, which I desperately needed. Feels good.
Hope you guys are having a great weekend, and that you're staying hangover free ; ) Learn from my mistakes, kids.
