I made it to Bethany‘s house. The second half of my day yesterday wasn’t exactly smooth, but I didn’t die! Life is good.
We headed out to Orange County today to meet up with some other 7 Dayers. Traffic and busy parks interrupted our original plans and we ended up at Brenda‘s house, which turned out to be totally perfect.
I had a lovely time meeting all these wonderful people I’ve known online for so long and finally got to meet face to face. The only thing that would have made it better was if my family was there too. My kids would have loved running around with the other little people.
I FaceTime’d with the kids while we were still there, as they were going to bed because of time zones and all that, and I told them I was at Secret Agent Josephine’s house. They are huge fans of her books, so they were pretty stoked, and they wanted to say hi. So that’s what they did. They said, “HI!” and that was it. Kids are so hilarious on the phone.
Here are a few alternate shots. The top one we were trying to pose with some of Brenda’s awesome cardboard cutouts and somehow I wasn’t so awesome withe whole press-the-shutter-and-run-back-to-the-group thing. I don’t even know.
The one below made me laugh because Sonja and I both jumped the gun in each others’ photos. We rule at 7 Days.
I’m pretty sure this has been my most-favourite run yet. And there are still five days to go!
