Has it Really Been 10 Years?

November 13th, 2008

Mr Chiot’s and I went to Cincinnati last week for our 10 year college reunion. We met up with a few friends: Kelly & Charlie, we finally got to meet little miss Brooklyn, we also visited with Steve & Kelly and my college roommate Danielle. We had a great, although short, trip. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since we graduated. We’re getting so old.

This is a photo of my friends and I on graduation day in 1998. It’s sad we all couldn’t be there, but I’m sure we’ll be planning a get-together soon (right girls?).

Lucy had a great time while we were gone. She got to spend the weekend at Grandma’s house, which is one of her favorite places. My mom always takes good care of her, spoiling her with treats and comfy blankets to sleep on, she definitely got top of the line care (thanks mom!). She’s healing up nicely from her election day mishap and early next week she’ll be headed back to the vet to get the staples out.

She’s going to have a nasty scar on her face/nose though, but she’ll still be cute as ever. We’ll have to come up with a new nickname for her.

    That photo of you and your friends from college is like something out of a movie… so sweet!

    Glad to hear Choits is healing up… He still looks so sad!

    Susy – Mmmmmmm – Regarding your comment at my blog: hollyhocks & foxgloves – plants we southern californian’s can do a passable job with. Glad you’re discovering the ornamental grasses. They vary so much depending on locations, but they’re always best where there’s some air movement, so they can dance on the breezes.

    Glad your pooch is healing. Looks kinda punked out with nose rings – kinda like it was rummaging around in a tackle box. Be well. GWG

    My hollyhocks & foxgloves do wonderfully (the hollyhocks if the deer can’t find them). I guess it has something to do with the cooler winters?
