As a stay-at-home mother of five, can I just say how absolutely wonderful it is to have time to sit down with a friend and converse with another adult for a couple hours? As in - a human adult, in person, who isn't a relative or a delivery person? And of course my Asperger's didn't kick in because she's one of my best friends. And her Asperger's didn't seem to kick in either (except maybe making the long drive to come out here).
It was so nice. And our kids played. The rain stopped for the entire time they were visiting. Aside from being crazy hot, it was a fun time. I look forward to more visits in the future.
On a side note - this marks the first non-family person I have invited over to the new house. It only took me almost a year... but hey, I have accomplished being a hostess!
