Here and there

Spent last night at a racetrack and casino. If you think that doesn't sound like my usual taste in entertainment, you're right, but this was a special occasion.

We went to Hoosier Park in Anderson to meet a couple of my really good friends from high school and their wives for dinner. Afterward, we walked over to the bar that was in the center of the casino to meet up with a few of our other classmates. It was great to see the guys. It had been 15 years since I had seen them and I have missed them. One of the wives didn't make it because she was at Grandma's with the three year old and twin one year olds. Amazing how we can be at such different points in our lives!
I can't say I would chose to go back to the casino. Noise, smoke, flashing lights. Did I mention noise? But the restaurant was pretty good, especially for Anderson.

I woke up this morning to find that my car had been broken into. We had a crime wave in our part of town last night, and a number of cars were broken into. Mine was literally broken into. One of the back windows was smashed all over the backseat. They threw the contents of my glove compartment and center console all over the floor. Patrick had left his wallet in the door pocket and he lost a fair amount of cash, a few gift cards, his ID, and his debit card.

I'm feeling really out of sorts today. I wish tomorrow could wait a day to come, because I just really don't feel like seeing people and I have to teach my class tomorrow.

Was your car broken into in your driveway? That's surprising.

Jane - was this your class reunion, or just an informal gathering? My 25th is next summer - I will be sporting a fabulous postpartum body!

Wow! That would be very unsettling to have your car window smashed like that. :(

Jane, We know exactly how this makes you feel, this happened twice while in the "HOLY CITY" and once the Police came to our door in the middle of the night with some of our things after they had caught the guys with a carload of stuff. Funny thing is Ed's discman (I know so old school) was taken with his Bible on CD in it! God works in spite of us! LOL, Blessings, Shawn <><

Polly--In our driveway, probably about 6:00 a.m. This was an informal gathering. Our reunion was cancelled due to lack of interest.

Oh no! I had my purse snatched once, and it was the worst feeling. I am sorry to hear this happened to you.
