Pox, the saga continues...and Highschool!

Well it's Kynzie's turn with the itchy spots. She is doing quite well though it's really not that big of a deal. Except for the "Mom, I'm bored" part. As for the other two still no pox. Ty said he's a manly man, and manly men don't get chicken pox, in turn that's why Wyatt did, because he's not a manly man. Brothers!?
Last night I tossed and turned, I couldn't get my mind to shut off. A friend of mine is planning a huge reunion for next summer (more than a year from now.) She's inviting a ton of people that I went to high school to go. I don't know what will come of it, but if it did happen, my imagination runs wild with the outcome. It mostly would be a Drama Group reunion, with a few tag along friends here and there. Good people, (some not so much) But are they people that I would ever in my life want to see again. Have any of you been to a reunion, other than family, if so how did it go? I think it would be scary, maybe fun. I mean I'm so normal now. These are people who called me Harley. These are people that would cram in the maverick and ditch school with me. Some of these people all gathered in my friends back yard, and we all gave each other haircuts with clippers. We played truth or dare, fought and cried on each other's shoulders. These were my highschool family, that I ditched for a boyfriend (that turned out good), but I grew up and did not keep good relations with. I do miss them, and have nothing but good memories with them. So I would like to go, and if I have the chance I probably will go. But wow, SCARY!!!

I went to my 10 year and it was ok. I went to my 20 year and left it wondering why I bothered since people who lived right there didn't make any effort to spend much time being together - they had to do this with their family or had to go to the mountain. I don't keep in touch with any of them so although we were a small group, (20 kids), most of them never moved more than 100 miles from where they grew up. I did go to an all school reunion and that was fun - especially to visit with the really old people - like my old tachers and such.
When my 30th came around, I decided my money would be better spent on doing something with people I actually like.

I know what you mean about wondering if I would go to a hs reunion. Next year it will have been 10 years. Is there really anyone I want to see? Most of the people I hung out with I still get to hear about through Carter (yup, he still occasionally hangs out with them!)
I think of the memories, and the fun and even the pain and hurt. I think I would go. If only to see if I turned out much differently than they imagined, because that, my friend is the big quesiton. How different am I from the "ideal" that they thought I was. As (-toot toot on my own horn-) I was quite popular in high school. I had all the friends and guys I wanted, but I was never really happy.

so, it'll be the 12 1/2 year reunion. You're scared? I'm slightly terrified...dear god what have I started, and why? I guess I just thought I missed everyone and wanted to make sure they were ok...and yeah, you guys were my family. I miss your Mav, the green beast we used to plow through SM in, going so fast whoever was in the backseat would hit the roof of the Mav...I suspect this will be the only chance we're going to get, as SM isn't getting bigger, and more than a couple reunions have been, it's a one time only shot. I dunno...i started the whole thing so I could see you and Walt and Brand...and more people than I thought expressed interest...go fig...maybe they miss us too...and don't worry about being normal, we love you no matter what, for everything you were and everything you now are. That's part of why I'm doing this...I loved the people you all were, and suspect most of the people coming have grown up into super cool adults. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple bitter bags here and there, but there are always people who are at bad places in their lives...maybe a friendly boost of affection from old friends will help (not always likely though). Besides, I'll be weird enough for you and me...;D
