For nine years of my life, I spent living in the town of Meridian, Idaho.
It was an interesting time in my life.
It was my "stay at home mom" time in my life.
I didn't work outside the home.
I had three main things in my life at the time.
Wife and Mother.
I was involved in my church.
I was a school volunteer.
And that was a lot of what I did.
And through my involvement in church, I became close to many women in the church, women who had a big impact on my life.
One of those women is here with me this weekend for a retreat at my sister's house, overlooking the beautiful Lake Roosevelt in eastern Washington. I call her April #2. (I have three friend's named April in my life. I met her second, she is April #2.)
We are here to jump start our creativity, and help her start a blog. We are here on retreat.
Plans changed a bit in the way it started. She was suppose to arrive in Spokane at the airport yesterday at about 6:30 p.m., but her plane was delayed, and she arrived at 11 p.m. So we stayed in Spokane at a motel. This morning we did a little retail therapy and had a wonderful time saving lots of money!!
We arrived at my sister's house tonight and have had a wonderful time visiting, touring my sister's gardens, eating good food, and modeling funky clothes I bought today.
I look forward to the rest of our weekend, and seeing what transpires.
