Reunited with friends from college. Awesome. Jean was awesome and drove down from Seattle to pick me up from Portland and drive me to Eugene. It was a whirlwind of activity. So many people in town to celebrate Mackenzie's graduation. I was fortunate to see her for her open house.
I remember being that age and wanting to be free. My mom hosted my party and some of my friends stopped by along with family. At the end of it, I flitted from party to party to see friends and dreamed of when the summer would end and I could move to college. Such a glorious time.
I get it, I do. I only wish I had been able to carve out a little more time with Mackenzie before heading back to Denver. I suppose there is always next time. Yesterday, I spent the majority of the day traveling back to Denver and experiencing delay after delay til I arrive in Denver and the light rail is not working. So frustrating! I waited with Maghan til he got off work as he had had my car. Had I known that he would arrange an uber from park and ride I would have left an hour before we left. Yet another irritation that I would have liked to avoid.
I am back and heading to work in a few hours. Back to thrive, create a niche and be happy. I will reflect more on my trip to Oregon when I have time. It was amazing to see all of my sisters, parents and friends.
