Dinner With The Girls

The five of us- my sisters, mom, and I- sat at the kitchen table. The children, all 7 of them, were playing not so quietly in the other room. The husbands that were present, were watching television in the living room.

"Do you remember when. . .?" "I can't believe that happened!" "What about when. . . " "You did WHAT?!?"

Laughter followed every one of these statements. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. I'm talking stomach hurting, tears flowing, pick me up off the floor laughing.

We talked about growing up on the farm. We talked about crazy things we did and the crazy things our kids do. We made fun of each other. And each other's cooking- well, really only one person's cooking. It wasn't mine.

I wish I could go into detail about some of the funny stories we told. I wish I could share our memories with you.

But, I can't.

Blame my family. After every anecdote, I heard the phrase, "You can't put this on your blog."

Hhhmmmmm. . . Maybe I'll just have to start a blog that they don't know about. And share every one of their secrets.

I can promise you it would be entertaining.

It was the most fun dinner I've had in a long time, and I can't even blog about it.

I love those evenings! My family all live on the other side of the country, so nights like that are few and far between. *sigh*

Glad you had such a good time.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all in July! Maybe you could slip some of those secrets then........

True, the best times are best kept secret!

I love times like that with my family. They are the best, aren't they?

Wendi said...

Good times!
I love some good ole girl time!
I understand what you mean about a secret blog.
Most days I wish I had never told anyone I know that I have a blog.
Then, everything could go on the blog!
My husband's favorite comment these days is "Well, why don't you put THAT on your blog?"
I usually do!

It's wonderful to have a family that you can laugh with.

I laugh out loud when my friends or family have to preface any conversation with "you can't put this on your blog". haha

Sarah said...

You could always use pseudonyms....:-)

My family is always saying stuff like that ... you can't put this on your blog!

And what fun is that, people?! Hellloooo!
