And so the evening began! We met downtown and had dinner/drinks...and great conversation, then progressed outdoors to the patio where we really got to know one another a bit better!!! Our out of town guest seemed to enjoy our group and share a common interest for the Hummer as well as for the Mercedes!!! ;) Everyone seemed to have a great time! (Pictures credited to Matt...) I didn't take my camera, but Elaine, Matt, and Kymberlie took lots of pics!! I was really tired on the drive home, but once I got inside I was wide awake. (Don't you hate it when that happens?!?!) So, I hit play on the VCR (I had taped my shows) and got out my notebook and began to write for a while. I didn't get much written b/c I kept stopping to fast forward through the commercials...finally gave up and just watched the end of the tape and then got into bed at 2 AM...only to have to wake up again at 6:00...okay, so I didn't get out of bed until 7:00, but the alarm still went off at 6:00!
