I took a step out of the virtual world and into reality today when I had my first real-life blogger meet-up with VenturaMom and her lovely child, The Girl.
I was debating whether to post about this tonight because I am tired and don't know whether I can do it justice. But I know I will be running around like a chicken in the morning and I can't blog at work (terrible, I know!), so I will give you the rundown now.
VenturaMom is lovely and funny and smart and has an almost 3-year-old that is lovely and funny and smart. Interesting how that works. We met down by the beach in a park and hung out and talked and watched as The Girl - who is quite the socialite - made friends with all passers-by.
It turns out that we know a BUNCH of the same people - Ventura is not that small, but it gets real small when you start talking to people.
We share political views (Fox News - bad; kindness, mercy and justice - good), a love of dogs and a hatred for extremely mean skinny women who do their hair and nails to go to they gym. THAT's what I'm talking about.
All in all, a raving success. The Girl learned to play bocce ball from some nice guys in the park, too.
