The unexpected

Yesterday will go down as one of the best and unexpected.

Good workout and then into the city. The bride (now married over a year) and I met up and trained into the upper east side together. We played a hard and fast game of catching up on our hour long ride to Brunch.

Once there we ate, carbs, day two. My body is full of energy and the carb withdrawal is not going to be fun. Lots of wine and laughs and even some tears. We set a next adventure, this time keeping it to bklyn.

On our way back we texted our yoga partner that lives near there. She was sadly in Queens and then my cousin called. We had been playing phone tag forever and it turns out she was still at her moms house in Jersey. So I said get in your car, there’s no meter, so you’ll be able to park.

By the time we got back to my house The groom was there and minutes later my long lost cousin. We haven’t seen each other since the dreaded birthday this past March. It was a good night, just wine and laughs. She may even attend the event in February.

Other highlights of the day……

Scored 2 tops and 2 dresses at the goodwill. Now let me explain, the good will in this neighborhood is an institution. They are know for high end clothes and nothing there is more than 20 bucks. Then a weird little painting at the house works thrift store.

We also got a bit of revenge on my old dance partner. He has out grown us as friends and has all these fab brunches and stuff. He doesn’t invite us anymore, so right before we got on the subway, a check in at the spot we just left, two blocks from his apartment. We waited and like clock work as the sun set and I’m guess he had a couple of drinks the bitchy comments from him started flowing. We laughed at that. It was all in good fun and I think he has learned that even though neither of us has such a great address as him, we get to where we need to go if there is wine at the end of the trip.

It was what I needed, good chats with good people and for the first time in a long time, I wasn’t lonely.
