Seems like the only time that I wite a blog is on Saturday! The weeks seem to fly by me and before I know it, it's Saturday again!
This is a special Saturday for me. It is the annual Planning Weekend for a group of high school friends and I. Every year for the past 12 years we have taken a long weekend trip together. This is the weekend that we decide where our trip will take us this year. There are 4 of us now. When we started doing this all of those years ago there were 5 of us. On our third year trip we spent the weekend with our fifth member who was dying of brain cancer. At her funeral service the following year, we vowed that we would continue getting together every year for as long as possible. Our first toast of the wine glasses at the beginning of each trip is to Dory, our dear friend.
We've been to Clear Lake, Minneapolis, Decorah, Kansas City, Michigan, Illinois, Florida and many places in between. Wonder where we'll end up this year?? Wherever it is, what is important is that we continue to get together, laugh, drink a little wine, play dominoes and cards, eat and laugh until our stomachs and cheeks hurt. It's one of those important things in life.
