It was so great to sit down and get to know one another over lunch. With all that we had to talk about, time definitely got away from us. Before we knew it, we had been sitting at that table for nearly 4 hours or more -- that poor waitress...I think she was done with her shift well before we left!
It was definitely a great way to spend the afternoon, and I look forward to doing it again sometime soon. Before we left, we agreed that we'll have to get together when the hubbies are available so that they can meet, too. How fun! I know Oba wouldn't mind them coming over. He got to meet Rhiannon for a short time before we headed out to lunch, and to say the least, he liked her. When I got home, I let him out of the cage and he ran straight for the front door. The poor guy stood there looking out the side window, searching for his new friend. When he realized she wasn't coming, he ran back to me crying and then back to the door. Someone was a bit brokenhearted that their playtime was cut so short, ha.
Here's to an uplifting day!!
Oh, and to top it off, I got a call from my dad towards the end of the evening and found out he will be just 30 minutes from our house tomorrow for work. He's on the road for his job and we never know where he'll be, so to hear this news was awesome! Looks like a little trip to Opelika is in order!
Alright...after getting about 3 hours of sleep last night -- darn you, insomnia! -- I'm off to bed...
