Au Revoir, My Friend!

Today one of my best friends in the whole world is on her way back to her adopted home in London by way of Chicago. I dropped her off at the MSP airport this afternoon after a fabulous weekend of relaxation and ribaldery. (I don't think that's a word but somehow it seems appropriate.) We always end up solving all the world's problems until about 3 AM, this time covering parenting (even though she's childless by choice), right wing nut jobs, and why it is so dang hard to lose those last (or more truthfully, those first) 10 pounds! She'll be back for New Year's celebrations, as has become our custom. It will be here before we know it, too. It's hard to imagine in the middle of the summer, but next time I see her, we'll be donning scarves, hats, boots, and coats! Ah, la vie in Minnesota!
