Good Friends, Good Food, Good Fun

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT: WIVES GET AWAY FOR FUN WITHOUT CHILDREN AND HUSBAND. Boy oh boy, what a fun night it was. We had been trying to plan for a get away to just sit, talk, laugh and enjoy each others company and then it happened, a night so fun-filled that we tried to make the best of every minute.

There we are, Raemeaksha, LaVender and myself sitting at Golden Corral after we had shut the place down. Let's start at the beginning, shall we? R had sent me a message saying we needed to get together. L had been told me in church and we just needed to get the three of us on one accord. None of our schedules would fit where we could get away. So R said let's just do it, let's just plan for somewhere to go. We didn't have a clue where we wanted to go, we all were just excited to get away and have some girl fun without husband and kids.

So I called L and she said for us to meet up in one central location: THE CHURCH and then that way we can make a decision where we wanted to go. It was hard for us to choose because we don't ever get to go anywhere without someone on our tails. When I called R to tell her that we would meet up at church, she laughed so hard and then laughed harder. She said that she could see three different vehicles parked at the church parking lot at night like we had some secret meeting we were trying to attend. OK then, we settled on meeting at Golden Corral.

I was to pick up L in my car and we would ride together and then R would meet us there. We were so excited that we were on our way to nothing but fun, good clean fun for married women. On my way to L's house, my car started sounding funny and jerking, so I got to L's house and parked it. L's hubby thinks it may be the transmission, so L drove instead and I left my car at her house. When we arrived at Golden Corral, R was running about maybe 15 minutes late, and then when she showed up, we laughed non-stop. We ate, then talked, then laughed, then ate some more, talked some more, laughed even harder. We talked about how much fun this was and hoped that we could at least do this once a month. It was such a refresher just to breathe from the normal daily life of husband and children.

When we looked around, there may have been about 6 to 10 more people in Golden Corral and we decided that we should go home. Yes, we shut the place down and we loved it. This was one spectacular night and I realized that it was good for us women to just relate, release and relax.

Lovingly yours,
