It's been a while since I posted, huh? Saturday we checked out the local wine festival. It was unbelievably hot but we had a great time. I picked up a couple of bottles of amazing Texas wines. Then we checked out a new sushi place that put our usual place to shame. All in all it was a good weekend. We even did a little home improvement by replacing our ghetto mirrored light fixture in the guest bath. The new one is pretty much a piece of crap too but at least it looks better.

Today I went to a local park with 2 girls from church. I say girls because they are 24 and saying ladies just makes me or them sound old. I only know one girl barely and the other I just met today. It is so hard making new friends especially over play dates. They brought 2 and 3 kids with them respectively so it was a little difficult getting a chance to actually talk. Every time we would start to discuss something a kid would run off. I never got a chance to really learn anything about either of them.

I know what you mean about the play date thing...they are hard to come by.

Glad you had a good time at the wine festival!

Man I can't do that outdoor summer wine festival thing anymore. It has to be spring or fall . . . I went to one and was so hot I just realized I liked any of the white wines because they were chilled and I was dying of thirst.

Glad the festival was fun! And hopefully the next pay date is better!

It is so hard to talk with kids running around. You can't even finish a conversation!

We pick Chick-Fil-A for talking playdates. The kids are corralled in a soundproof playroom, and friends and I plant ourselves just outside. When a kid tries to escape, we give them the mom look and hiss, "get back in there and have fun -- NOW!"

(Just kidding, but only a little bit.)

the kid thing is great for superficial convo, but i ended up with my closet friends through bible study. that is always hard at first too, but now, 6 years later, it is amazing!
