Happy Reunion and Anime…

Ahhhh, happy reunions. A few days ago my daughter made an unexpected visit to the southern part of the state. I of course told the boss I had to leave early….jumped in my car….and made the 2&1/2 hour drive down to see her.

I miss her terribly. She is my bestie. I unfortunately have only a few friends, many aquaintences…..but a small few that are true friends. My daughter used to tease me and say “I know I’m your best friend….you’re not my best friend….but I’m yours.” with a huge smile on her face. She half way meant it, and was totally correct. No hard feelings here though. I’m her mom….I will always be there for her….even more so than a best friend. Best friends can be with you for a few years, then be gone in a second. It doesn’t even have to be a bad parting of ways. People just grow, and move on. BUUUUUUT, I was soooo happy to see her.

We went and had Thai food for dinner, hung out in her hotel room for a bit, then went to a cool little hole in the wall place with an friend of hers. For privacy’s sake I’ll call him Mr. B. Mr. B took us to ‘Pangea Alchemy Lab’. Very cool decor, amazing desserts, and Mr. B bought me my very first glass of Absinthe. I found that I like Absinthe. I love black licorice and anise…. Absinthe has that flavor. If you are ever in Sarasota please visit Pangea. You’ll be glad you did.

VERY, VERY, VERY, cool place. Sarasota Florida……check it out.

Back to me spending time with my daughter. She assigned me 3 new Anime series to watch as homework. 😉 Soul Eater, Seven Deadly Sins….and I can’t remember the other off the top of my head….something about a high school something squad. Good thing I wrote it down or I’d fail the assignment. lolol. I started with Soul Eater. I have to admit I like it…… It is too hot outside to actually leave the house for more than 10 minutes, or else I’ll get that “I become stupid and put my keys in the freezer” MS thing going on. SOOOOOOOOO I’m off to BINGE watch “Soul Eater”.

I am the first child of 5. 2 of those siblings are half sisters and 2 are half brothers. I have 2 adult children and 3 dogs. CRAZY, CRAZY dogs. I obsessively collect orchids. Not really pretty orchids.....I feel bad for the sickly orchids you see at your local grocery store or gas station. I get those and try to nurse them back to health. UGGH, I am a glutton for punishment.
