I’m relatively new to blogging, having only been chronicling the never-ending minutiae of my life since March 2007. Somehow I managed to get involved with an incredible group of writers over at DC Metro Moms, who put up with my daily minutiae at their site too.
I was so excited to finally meet most of them at a get-together last night at Le Chat Noir, sponsored by Graco. I’ve met a few of them before (once), and have known the lovely and inspirational WhyMommy since before I blogged.
I know, life before blogging. Imagine. What did I do with all of my idiotic musings then?
So it was a little weird to actually see these people in 3-D. And you know what? They were all really cool. Being someone who is plagued by social anxiety, it was an interesting phenomenon to walk into a room where a fair number of the never-before-met people in it already knew about how dirty my car is, what I think about autism and the sisterhood, and how often Quinn poops. And it was very easy to talk to all of them.
For any of you voyeurs out there, you can see pictures from the event here. I am the one dressed in the bright green sweater. Can’t miss that, can ya’? The rest of these beautiful, smart, interesting women—Amie, Andrea, Devra, Joanne, Kimberly, Kristen, Linda, Nancy, Nicole, Robin, Sandie, Sarah, Stephanie, Susan, Suzie, Vickie, Victoria—and Gunfighter looked fabulous in their fantastic Baby Brewing t-shirts and/or sleek clothing. Some of ’em even wore heels. (But not Gunfighter.)
It was a wonderful night and I only wish it could have lasted longer. We missed those of you Metro Moms that didn’t make it. All I hope is that we can get together again. Soon.
You’ll have to excuse me now, I have some online stalking to do of my new friends.
