Well, maybe that was pushing it just a bit.
So today when I started getting the shakes because it had been almost two weeks since I'd seen her, I called her up and invited myself over.
We can do that with each other.
The only problem was this nasty snow storm we've been having combined with her hair raising-white knuckle dirt road with cliffs on either side. We were going to have to park and hike in.
So the kids and I loaded up and chugged across town in our 4 wheel drive, chains banging on the dry spots on the pavement and slipped and slid our way to Emily's. We hiked through the woods and over hills to finally reach her house. The kids played in the snow for hours and we sat in her nice cozy house and talked about nothing for a really long time.
It was perfect.
