I leave for Denver Thursday afternoon. (I'll be home Sunday evening)
The question I hear these days is - Why Denver? And it's usually followed by - is it a scrapbooking thing?
It was a whim, really. Colorado is on my list of wanna see someday. It was completely on a lark last month that I priced a ticket and was surprised to see they are quite affordable and realistic. When my husband came home that night I jokingly mentioned that I had priced tickets to Denver and he laughed and said, you were serious when you said you're running away from home! It had been a long day. He then said, why don't you go? I'll take a few days off work.
And my eyes got real big.
And I bought a ticket. Heeee. Denver!
I made up a Denver song yesterday. Wanna hear it? It's sung to This Land is our Land. Ready? I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Deeeeenver, I'm go.ing to Dendendenden Denver. Repeat repeatedly.
Wendy thinks my song is dumb.
Now. When I get there, I'm going to stay and hang out with my friend Tina. I enjoy telling people that Tina and I have never actually met. She's on my list of wanna meet someday. We've emailed, we have a lot of common friends - my mom knows her mom type thing and I'm certain that we've sat in the same church at the same time at least once in our lives. We've just never met, but there's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to have the best time. I'm completely fired up. Our emails share that we have a lot of common, and while I'm sure that there must be things we don't agree on as well, that's what all good relationships are about, right?
It's going to be fun.
Yesterday I made some plans to meet a few more friends while I'm there - a Friday morning breakfast, shopping, and laughs.
I really can't wait.
I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver, I'm going to Denver......
