I spell it Grey

Sometimes when I'm writing these, or even when I am thinking about what I'm going to post, I picture myself as a narrator, much like Meredith in Grey's Anatomy. I feel like I am walking you through an episode of a show I call My Life. Sometimes it's a comedy and sometimes it's a drama. Right now my life has a lot going on, to the extent that I really don't know what happened to the month of October, and this episode has hints of both genres, though I'm only going to highlight the comedy.

In the midst of the busiest October I've ever lived through, I had the opportunity to sit down with some very dear friends and enjoy some martinis. And enjoy them we did. I would like to first say, if you're with a couple of people and you can all agree on one flavor, go for the pitcher, it's fabulous. We started with the Raspberry Lifesaver which I am giving a 9.5. Amazing, great flavor and it masks the alcohol very well. Our second round was the Red Appletini which I am giving a 9.8. Frankly put, it's delicious. This picture is proof.

So who has heard of the saying "you wouldn't join a club that would have you as its member"? Anyone? I hadn't either but Sandi so graciously brought this to my attention a couple months ago and we brought it up again this evening, after talking about a few different scenarios we're all going through. It's basically like this: you really want to join this group, so you apply, and you pray about it and then you're accepted but you realize, you don't want to be in a group that just accepts you. We're complicated individuals and sometimes do really dumb things, and I think this is one of them. But we all do it, and when you take a second and think about it, I can almost guarantee you've been there, because it applies to a lot of different areas of life.

I was doubting my ability to carry out this blog for the full year but after this past night, I realize that I need this. I need something to look forward to. I need the company, the atmosphere, the freedom, the conversations, the laughter, the tears, the tears because of the laughter and the support. And most of all I look forward to looking back at these posts and seeing the memories and the growth. :)

Evening Re-cap:

Quotable quotes: Amy - "SPINACH DIP AND CHEEEEEEEPS!!"

Sandi - "Not me and my hand but you and your hand"

Me - "I just did the 90/10 with the lamp..."

Jenna - "It's not gossip, we talk about him all the time."

Drinks had: Raspberry Lifesaver and Red Appletini
