...life goes on.
Situations come and go. Possibilities are started and lost. Disappointments visit briefly and...life goes on. It has to or else we'd all be sitting around moping, crying in our beer/wine/whisky/milk - whatever floats your boat.
Yesterday would have been my 5 year wedding anniversary. Some lovely and wonderful friends took me out to dinner - we all started dinner about 1 1/2 hours after we originally had planned. Then we went out to a lounge here in town to listen to Rotel and the Hot Tomatoes - an Austin original and an Austin staple of the music scene. We drank, we danced, MC and I got to sing briefly with one of the singers of the band. It was fun.
Unfortunately, we got started late due to, well, just circumstances with some of the people in the party. There was someone that MC and Amy had invited to meet us at the lounge around 9/9:30. Unfortunately that was about the time we were eating. We don't know if that person showed up around that time but by the time we all got there around 11 there was no sign of that person and I don't blame them one bit if they showed up and left when we didn't show up. SIGH. I would have too.
Obladi Oblada...life goes on. And so we pick ourselves up, learn the lesson and move on.
In honor of picking up and moving on I did some blog quizzes (huh? - yeah just go with it).
