I left the Flashdance clothes at home....

and wore more appropriate clothing to my high school reunion. It was a fun night and I was happy to see some people I haven't seen since graduation night. There were several I had hoped to see, but didn't come. I went to a large school in the Twin Cities-we had about 450 in our class. I know that is small by some schools these days, but my kids were in classes of 36 and 52. Above with me is : Me, Lori and Kim. I have known Lori since we were 5 years old. We went to school together for every year except 9th grade. I have know Kim since 7th grade. It is sad that we don't see each other very much, but we hope to rectify that. In our defense, we were (are) all raising kids and Lori lives 35 miles north of the Cities and I live 35 miles south of the Cities, so there is travelling to be done. My BFF Liz wasn't able to make it, but her and Kim live really close to each other. It is easiest to meet in the Cities and we hope to do it soon. And as odd as it seems, but maybe it isn't so odd, so many people haven't changed, good or bad. I had fun, I drank little since I had that 35 mile drive, but also nice to be able to remember the night. I know of at least 7 that won't be!

I can't imagine being in a class of 35. There were hundreds of kids in my class, although I don't remember how many exactly. Glad you had a good time!
