some backstory. saturday morning, up at 4:30 in order to go and serve at our community hungry man breakfast. we had a great turnout as usual, worked our butts off and then got home to water the garden - it was hot, bright day. after spending several hours working in the yard, we went to have a nap before our friend d's 50th birthday party on saturday night. did we make it to the supper? no. we had naps and slept through the alarm. no one at the party was surprised - they were surprised that we actually made it!!! that's how often we miss things due to getting up super early in the AM and needing afternoon naps - bahahahah!
to be honest, it took all week to get over last saturday night's party where we danced too much, drank too much and partied too much. who the heck in their 40's parties until 4:30 in the morning. us. that's who.
back to our friend d's party - holy moly! what a crazy party! dancing with my besty c the whole night. hanging out with our friends c&b, s&d, r&d....and c&b's kids, r&d's kids, s&b's kids and all of the husbands/wives/boyfriends in between. it was beyond crazy!
we also met up with our friend v who we haven't seen for at least 2 years but were able to re-establish our relationship pretty quick. he's friends with our other friends k&b and b's brother s. and we got to meet k's daughter. she is truly beautiful. and smart.
so now for 2 saturday nights in a row we closed the hall in grand mira. not a good idea. last saturday we went to s&b's cottage after the dance and paid the price. did we learn our lesson? that would be a resounding NO!!!
after this party we all headed back to d&r's...d being who the party was for. it was a jungle. hanging out on d&r's deck, yakking with everyone, having a blast, should NOT have still been drinking! but man did we ever enjoy ourselves! and now for the last 2 days, neither of us have a voice and we have sworn off drinking FOREVER! otherwise known as the next dance!
we didn't get home until 6am!!! ugh - ye gods - HELP! sunday sucked bad as we were really hurting!
today we still were suffering but as it was 29C out - we headed to the river for some river medicine. it worked!
we love hanging out with our friends but 2 weekends in a row??? that's just asking for trouble!
here's our snacks for down at the river.
it was fun taking dips every 20 minutes and helped cleared our heads. it's only 2:00 but we are just not used to that kind of heat and i didn't want us to get sunstroked. after being sick from bug bites for the past 2 months, sunstroke is not what we need!
we need a week of detox and no more parties until september. bahahahahahah! we hope that you all had a nice weekend too!
