High School Friends

Okay – I know I don’t want to be the person I was in high school, but I miss my high school friends.  We had so much fun when we were in high school.  With few exceptions, since college, I have not seen very many of them.  I went to my ten year reunion but the people I knew didn’t necessarily come.  I had four kids by then and was thinking about number five.  Most of my classmates didn’t understand.

The one person I have tried to keep up with is my friend Beth.  She moved in high school so was not there our senior year but in New Jersey with her mom.  We kept up as best we could through college, and then her to law school.  We both got married.  We have kids that are similar in age but I have a couple extras.

Last year, her father died and we saw each other for the first time in literally years.  Why is it death brings us together so frequently? 

Today, she called.  She and her oldest, Ashley, are on their way up to New York from the Richmond, Virginia area for the weekend.  They are leaving early evening Friday so won’t be here until Saturday morning early.  She is coming to get items from her father’s estate which is finally almost settled after a year.  We are going to get together.  I can’t wait to see her and Ashley.

  1. I grew up in So. Florida and I’ve lived here in upstate NY for the last 20 years. I am not near ANY of my high school friends and I really miss that! I would love to connect with some of the buddies that made high school so fun. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  2. JenLo – I have to tell you that we had a blast! We hadn’t seen each other, last year when we saw each other at the funeral, in almost 20 years. Now, we are going to try to get together at least once a year.
