Painting the town and such

This weekend, I did something unprecedented. I went out. Without my child. Both nights. Even more unprecedented: I went out without my husband.

]On Saturday night, I met all of these classy ladies of Indy (ish) for dinner and what turned (devolved?)  into a game of bowling complete with fashionable neon shoes and kiddie bumpers on the lanes.

I am so totally out of shape (see, bowling IS a sport) that after scarfing down a burger, fries and two lemon martinis, I actually strained a muscle in my forearm whilst tossing a ten-pound ball down a lacquered wooden floor. So, so sad.

But the best part was I felt like I was getting some of me back – not R’s mommy, not Dave’s wife, not “job title here.” Michelle is still in there somewhere! And she can laugh! And talk with other women! And stay out past 10 p.m.!

Who would have thought?

    Amen to still being you! I felt the same way. It was great meeting you, I hope we’ll get together again (or maybe even hit the minor league baseball scene.) THAT would be crazy.

    Go Cards!

  4. I was rolling over last night and though “Huh, I’m sore. Wonder why?”
    And then it occurred to me.

    It was so great to meet you. I wish we could’ve spent more time actually hanging out!

    Congrats! I’m so glad you got to have some fun. Keep it up! It’s good for a girl to get out on her own once in a while.
