Hanging Out

Today I did something I haven't done in a really long time - hang out with a friend.

You will find as you get older that you spend less time with friends and more time with family.  And this is as it should be.  And this is not to say that I don't enjoy hanging out with my family, but there is something to be said for just hanging out with a friend.

This was not a planned activity for me today.  My morning had been planned to work on cleaning projects in the classroom.  But I got a call just before 8am that getting in to my classroom was going to be impossible today due to the fact hallway floors had just been waxed and no one was allowed to walk on them for at least 24 hours.

Since I was already up and around I called my friend and since she was in the same predicament as me, we decided that she should come over and we would hang out.

When she got to my house, she had me change my outfit - I forgot that today is St Patrick's Day and had forgotten to wear green!  She not only had on a green tee-shirt, but had painted her fingernails green as well!  We then went to Starbucks inside the Price Cutter so she could refill her coffee. I got a raspberry hot chocolate - Yummy!

First we went to  my friend's new house.  They are moving to Webb City at the end of the month! Yea!  My friend will soon be my neighbor!  She will have two bedrooms, a living room/dining room area, kitchen, two bathrooms, a laundry room and a one car garage.  My friend is very excited!

We then went to the dollar store to get get Easter stuff.  Both my friend and I host Easter Egg Hunts in our respective neighborhoods and the dollar store is the perfect place to get lots of candy to stuff in the plastic eggs.  After the dollar store we stopped in at the mall where we went to TJ Max and Vintage Stock.  We ran in to Mr C at Vintage Stock.  He said he was enjoying the time off for spring break just as much as me and my friend.

Our last shopping stop was the cool school shop for some cool Webb City gear.  My friend got her dad a birthday present there.  That pretty much filled our morning so we decided to go find noodles for lunch.  We both like Asian Pad noodles: she got Pad Thai and I got Pad See Ew.  We ate at the cool noodle place in Joplin with the giant bowl of noodles out front. Again - more Yummy!

Sadly, my friend had to head back to where she currently lives after lunch, but she will soon live in Webb City and I can see her to hang out more often then.

What a great day I had!  Can you guess who my friend is?


  1. Your day sounded great. It is fun to just "play" & not have to be on a schedule. Days like today need to happen more often, don't you agree?

  2. Its soiunds like you had fun, but the friend I am gonna have to guess either Mrs.Orson or Mrs. Smith
