It was ladies night at the bowling alley again last night. As usual, I had an amazing time. We had 13 ladies come out, and I was surprised at how many of them had not joined us before.
We all agree that the town of Bend, Oregon is very polite. Everyone is friendly. But, it is very clicky. It is hard to make actual friends in this town. You’ll make acquaintances if you are into the right hobbies. It reminded me what I created my Facebook Group, and it makes me so happy to see so many people taking advantage of it and finding actual friendships.
I met some great women, who I’m sure will turn into friends. I also reconnect with some I haven’t seen in awhile. Everyone was nice. Everyone was classy. The karaoke was so much fun. I really don’t care that I can’t sing well, I enjoyed it just the same.
The root beer float cocktails were delicious, if not diet ruining. Oh well.
I also only brought up my son’s diagnosis once. I wish I could get to the point that I don’t mention it at all. I am getting better at it all the time.
I would post a picture of the entire group, but what happens at a COG event stays in the COG page ;). You will have to use your imagination about how much fun my ladies had.
I love that in the past 10 months, because of outing like this, I have found myself. It is because of some of the women in the group that I have found the desire to explore nature, and have learned that I love it. I have found a tribe that I can talk with until 3 in the morning.
On a different note, I start the challenge I made for myself. I know the first couple days will be easy, but for some reason I’m still dreading it. Maybe it’s because I have myself convinced I can’t do actual exercises? The constant failing in gym class still plagues my mind I think. Wish me luck.
