I was a BUNCO fill-in tonight...

Friday, February 09, 2007
My neighbor had a Bunco party tonight. She ended up being a person short so she asked me to play...at first I really didn't want to b/c I haven't been feeling well today, but I'm glad I did! I had a good time. She is a teacher and her fellow teachers and her get together to play often it seems...so needless to say I was the only one there that wasn't a teacher! At first everyone was talking shop, but thankfully as the game progressed and the wine flowed the conversation got more interesting! Ha ha! Not that teacher talk isn't interesting, but if you are the only person in a room that isn't a teacher you really don't have much to contribute!

I was debating about going, but Michael told me to go - that I needed to get out. He was right! So, he stayed home with Miss Emma tonight while I played. It really was a lot of fun and this was a fun group of ladies - all very friendly! I told Kim if they needed a fill-in in the in future to please give me a call. I don't know if I have that many female friends (you need 12), but it would be fun to host a Bunco party! There are a lot of spins you could put on it, too! I had only played once before...but it was like 8 or 9 years ago when I was in college.

I took my phone with me and told Michael to call if he needed me - I was just next door so I could get over here quickly. My phone never rang - I even sent him a text message to see if everything was alright and didn't hear back from him. They did fine without me. She had a bottle and was asleep when I came home. Of course, she woke up shortly after I got her - so I fed her again, we talked a while, rocked, and she is back in bed now. She is going to bed awake now and, though I do have to go in a couple times and reassure her before she stays asleep for the night, she is doing really well!

I hear her calling again...
