I think I said I would post some stuff from my 10-year reunion and then promptly forgot about that promise. You see, I’m getting old…
Anyway, here’s what happened. I went to a bonfire at a classmate’s parents’ home that was dubbed “family friendly” (we later decided that people without kids might have felt left out), but it was basically a nicer way of saying “minimal alcohol,” for which I was thankful. Anja played with some babies of my classmates, while Husband sat in a chair and tried not to act awkward (Because seriously, how awkward is it for spouses? Very.). I visited with people who looked like older versions of my classmates about their TODAY lives. It was weird. The whole weekend felt like a time warp, I kept saying. Here’s some babies:
After that we all dropped off our babies and went to a bar, where about 4 times the amount of classmates showed up. I sat by the door, talked with a couple friends, drank a water (they didn’t make mojitos, pretty much the only alcoholic drink I like), and left before 11:00 to go watch the Olympics. 🙂
The next evening was a class photograph at our high school, dinner, a parade and a dance (at which very few people actually danced. It was like 8th grade all over again.). Here’s my class (well, about 1/4 of us) at the Eagle’s, a very classy place. As you can see in the second photo, they have Christmas lights up YEAR ROUND! And despite having lived in said town for 18 years of my life, I had to ask my mom for directions to the Eagle’s.
These are some of my closer friends from HS. I just noted now that we all have blue eyes. Lotta Swedes and Norwegians up der in nordern Minnesoda.
Sunday my guy friends took me golfing with them, which was very nice. Even though there was a softball game and picnic scheduled, I happily accepted their invitation. I didn’t know how much more mingling I could handle. See, I’ve changed since high school. I’m not the confident, outgoing person I once was. Sometimes that makes me sad.
