Catching up: Let’s talk, but don’t we need to change the subject?
We’re back home! And I have to say, I missed it a lot. There is no place in the world like New York City. It has a unique and very special energy. It is always fun to go away, but it is magical to return to my family and get back into the pulse of this amazing city.
Once back and settled, Carole and I planned a “girls’ night out” for drinks and some fun conversation. She picked this great little gay bar called Bar-Tini, and we wasted no time getting our cocktails on with a little help from our friends! I have to say Carole is an amazing person and despite the craziness of the trip we had just shared with all the ladies, the bond that she and I now share made it all worth it. The easy and friendly atmosphere, surrounded by all these cute and fun gay men (and maybe one straight bartender??), added so much fun to our evening. In addition to the cherry bombs that were going down all too easily, Carole drops quite the news bomb on me about Aviva as runaway bride! This certainly sheds some light on her current behavior patterns. But more on Aviva later. . .
Carole and I can really make each other laugh which is a nice respite from all the yelling and I guess we are entertainment for the crowd too because the boys keep sending over shots, and we keep drinking them! It's been a long time since I just sat around slamming shots but somehow neither of us seemed to even notice while discussing our relationships etc.
I have to tell you that I am one lucky girl when it comes to that. There is rarely a day that goes by that Jon and I don’t bicker about something. . .raising a family with a little one who has special needs while running my own business. As hard working young parents in a difficult economy, life can be stressful and it adds pressure to any relationship. But, Jon and I love each other very much and we seem to get closer and closer as we travel life's bumpy road together rather than farther apart. Our healthy banter works for us and making up does too!!!
