I have great friends! And I saw some of them at my Divorce Shower on Saturday night. I also met some new friends that, up until Saturday I'd only seen as little tiny icons on our facebook page. I understand not everybody that wanted to show up could show up, people have other plans and things come up. But there was a perfect amount of people at Caffe Moderne for the party. It was all Jan's idea. She said people who get divorced need stuff more than people who get married. And I got stuff! Everything from silverware to lamps, enough kitchen utensils to host a dinner party, even 2 bottles of Jagermeister!!?!
I showed up early to help set up but of course nobody would let me help. They said "go to the bar and get yourself a drink" ...so I did. Peach Martini. That was the drink of the night. Once I start with something, I stay with it. It's safer that way...don't mix your alcohol ya' know. So all night as people were coming in, they would ask: "what are you drinking?"...."Peach Martini"...next think I know, there is a cocktail in my hand. At one point I think I had 3 Martini's sitting in front of me. I got a little bit lit to say the least! But in a fun "I'm trying to get a little lit" kinda way. I remember everything and everybody so it wasn't one of those nights where you wake up and go: "what happened?" I know what happened and it was all great! I did however break my alcohol rule when a friend of mine decided to pour us a couple of "shots" from the Jager bottle. That did exactly what is was supposed to do...send me over the edge! So another friend demanded my car keys and I obliged. Fun night!
I got up the next day and looked at all the stuff and read all the great cards from everyone who came and it made me feel great! Again, thank you. I have great friends.
